Kanye West, who was originally banned on Twitter for being openly antisemetic, gets unbanned -- because "free speeech" and all. He immediately posts a swastika. The tweet is up for hours, uncontested by twitter. EVENTUALLY it gets taken down (more in response to the public outrage about it than because of the tweet itself, it appears), but West's account is still active.
He then posts an unflattering picture of Elon Musk. Immediately gets suspended.
Further confirmation that at twitter, it's OK to openly support literal Nazism, but not ok to be mean to the twitter overlord.

Elon Musk is scraping content from public works on Ao3 to make AI-generated literature (allegedly). Along with making works private to Ao3 users, I suggest joining me in fucking with the AI using public works.

Does Elon Musk Have a Right to Destroy Twitter?
You break it, you own it. That's what I was told as a child. But for today's billionaires, it seems like the opposite is true.
“You own it, you can break it” — at least if you’re rich enough.
Just look at Elon Musk.
He paid a fortune for Twitter and is now busily destroying it — firing half its employees and driving out even more, causing chaos on the platform, making advertisers flee, and threatening bankruptcy.
Or consider Sam Bankman-Fried, who became a billionaire after founding the popular cryptocurrency exchange FTX — until he drove the company into bankruptcy.
Seems FTX was a Ponzi scheme that got out of hand. At least $1 billion in customer funds is reportedly missing.
These billionaires are presumed to be free from responsibility because they own what they’ve had a hand in destroying. So under the rules of capitalism, they have a right to do whatever they want with their money. Right?
Wrong. Millions have come to rely on Twitter as a vital source of information and connection. Investors put their money — and trust — in FTX. These people aren’t mere collateral damage. They’re bearing a big part of the cost.
“You own it, you can break it” is a careless norm for a complex society.
Do we really think that the super-wealthy should be allowed to control so much wealth and wield so much influence?
Absolutely not. We need stronger laws protecting the rest of us from the recklessness of these so-called "disruptors."
hot tips, if there happens to be a strike.
1. buy gas and keep your tanks full. Crude oil is one of the main commodities shipped via rail, and prices will shoot up after labor unrest.
2. commuter railroads will shut down, also increasing gas prices and worsening traffic.
3. Trucking capacity will dry up in the US, so the vast majority of consumer goods being shipped over the road will experience significant delays￼. Get those Christmas gifts rn
The important thing to remember is that the rail strike will have significant long-term impacts, and the true impact will not necessarily be felt in the immediate aftermath. while it may seem unimportant now, this will have a monumental impact on the US economy and send the US further into a recession.￼
Prepare, but remember that it doesn’t have to be this way if we support our workers and advocate for a fair and just labor movement.
And I hope we never have those brain chip in our heads…

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday flat-out called for the "termination" of the United States Constitution so that he could be returned to the presidency.
Reacting to the news that Twitter in the runup to the 2020 election removed tweets that featured pornographic photos of Hunter Biden, Trump declared that the entire election had been stolen from him and demanded to be returned to the presidency.
"So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION?" Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform. "A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great 'Founders' did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!"
This is not the first time Trump has called for his reinstatement as president, although this is the first time he has acknowledged that doing so would require the United States to shred its own Constitution on his behalf.
New York Times reporter Peter Baker wrote on Twitter that this seems like a dangerous new milestone for Trump.
"Needless to say, can't think of a time in the United States when a former president (and would-be future president) has called for suspending the Constitution to let him seize power," he wrote. "Even after all the shocks of the last few years, this one is remarkable."
