Are they not tired yet?

In 24 hours, Musk like Trump, Kanye and self-described misogynists back on Twitter. I don’t have a problem with Trump on, I just blocked him and all the other ones too.

I have a problem with Musk.

It’s like even though he let Trump back on, Trump hasn’t made a tweet yet. Because Trump has his own social media, which his supporters seem to have forgotten about. And after another mass shooting day in America, against a gay club who were supporting trans people on TDOR. Musk decided to tweet all day “Brokeback mountains” for Donald Trump type memes.

What has happened today, is proof that countries need to start making Federal/National Laws for social media companies who encourage hate and terrorism against other people. LibsofTikTok, LGB Alliance, Fair Cop. What’s the difference between these accounts and Jan 6th types? There is none.

Thursday Theories – Being back on Twitter

It’s been really funny back on Twitter. I swear, literally nothing has changed. It’s pretty much the same thing, except for the fact being that the theories are crazy, haha.

I swear, until Rowlings off there, I can’t see much changing. I can see though trans and cis people are getting more tired of the stupidity, and it’s becoming more apparent.

By the way, Drag is not woman face. What’s next cis men complaining that Drag Kings are men face. They are actually comparing it to black face.

Real life though has been crazy this week! I am SO tired, I’ve slept bad every single night, had to work and then my Mum got COVID, her first time. But I was with her when she tested positive! So my partner made me stay with her, which I can’t blame him for.

I am really stressed about getting my wisdom teeth out. I have to go “under” and I have never done that before! I was going to ring up about some questions I had, but I left all my dental information at my partners =/

Then I got so excited about Alex Kingston aka River Song coming to my state, that I went and bought a ticket, but now I am realised I really can’t afford it. So, I’ll have to get a refund, she’ll be around again though, and maybe I can travel interstate and have a whole trip away =D

And Suella Braverman is GONE!!! YAY!!!

Never mind me, I’m just twittering away, lol

Guess whose back? Back again!

Don’t worry though, I said my piece, let a couple of people know and came off again. I have NO intention of going back there again. What is funny though, I said to my Mum only yesterday that I was 100% believing that since they blocked Kanye West, we might see some changes for a little bit, and we did! Maya Forstater got suspended and here’s hoping Rowlings rants and defamation against Graham Norton and Billy Bragg, will do…something, lol

Well, duh, lol

Social media has done ‘extraordinary damage’ to democracy, public health, safety: Expert

They do actually have a transcript of the conversation. Reading through, I got slightly annoyed

Negative news, triggers fight or flight, so it makes people pay attention to it. Whereas good news, doesn’t have that kind of affect.

The third problem is one of incentives. And this is the one that’s killing us because there is no reason from an economic perspective why these companies should look out for the safety of their users, much less protecting the country’s national interest. Right now the incentives are for them to make as much money as they can as quickly as they can and not worry about the consequences. And until that changes, I don’t think there’s a chance we’re going to do anything good about this.

Roger McNamee

I would highly recommend reading this, or watching the video. Even though you all know what’s going on in the Universe. It is sometimes nice just to hear someone with clear intelligence, say it.

Is it just me?

Or are people getting stupider on social media, if that is indeed, possible, haha.

I’ve written about a couple of things that happened over the weekend, on here. The stupidity just honestly never seemed to end.

I totally was empathetic and understood about people being upset. What I didn’t understand was the whole saying something stupid, even if you’re upset and then refusing to admit that you probably shouldn’t have said it. Instead of being an adult, being all “Well, my feelings are hurt”.

Like you know how, when you’re upset and you say something stupid. It use to be that you’d apoligise, but these days, people will lash out and then their little social media minions will sit there and attack with you. For example, I follow a lot of different animal rescues accounts, wombats being one of them. So this account I follow, was upset that they couldn’t find this wombat and this person, I felt was just pointing out that it is all “doom and gloom”. Because, well it is.

Well, the account holder had a go and then all these other people, had a go. Calling the person a “troll” and other things that stupid people call others. I popped in and said “Well, I think they were agreeing with you”. How doom and gloom the situation was, because, well it is.

Are you seeing these things also?

Wombats are not pets

Thursday Theories – Tik Tok

I will start this blog post with a warning. I am not 100% sure what happened on there, all I know is that there were a lot of parents who stopped posting tik toks of their kids on there. It seemed to have involved child exploitation on there too. One of the reasons I have not written about this before is because I am not a parent. At the same time though, I keep wanting to say

*warning* child/minor exploitation

Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

A lot of social media sites have an age limit for a reason. There’s a good reason why a lot of social media, will not allow you to post naked, even sweet pictures, of your children, say in the bath.

We all get it. There’s people out there who “do not” though. There are some sick people out there, who literally do not get it.

Even if you do not post naked or semi naked pictures of your kids, in all pure goodness. There are some sick people out there. I don’t even want to imagine what they’d do with videos, clothed.

Now onto the other different topic. Too lose a child, I can’t begin too imagine. Unfortunately, I don’t think the parents suing Tik Tok for negligence, will win.

Dear parents, you are NOT your child’s friend. You are their PARENT. You are responsible for them. Not a social media company. The age limit for tik tok is 13, not 9 or 8. Most people say common sense, it should be 15 really. We’re in 2022, sorry, but that is not tik tok’s fault, you didn’t say no and clearly did not monitor your child’s activity.

People in there’s teens, 20s, 30s 40s+ Cannot handle social media. Why in HECK would you not be monitoring your 9 YEAR OLD!

Thursday Theories – “Violations”

Being “kicked off” of Twitter, for the stupidest reason. Has been quiet good, I know that when Elon Musk said he was going to buy Twitter. A group of us said we will leave Twitter, myself included. So it’s actually been quiet good.

It’s also been interesting seeing it as someone who does not have Twitter, and you realise how toxic twitter really is. And you also see how little people take any responsibility for their words and actions on there.

It’s like every single time at the moment, that when you see something about a celebrity it’s always from Twitter. Sometimes Instagram, rarely Facebook these days interesting enough. The day after I had been ‘banned’ there were a least 4 different celebrities who said stupid things on Twitter. By the way, if you’re going on Piers Morgan, it’s gonna end bad, no matter what your intention is, Macy Gray.

If Twitter were too actually stick to their “guns” (so to speak) Twitter would be SO much better. Twitter is definitely a toxic environment. Left, Centre or Right, doesn’t seem to matter on there.

Embrace your bodies all!

I am proud of myself right now

Of ALL the things I have said on Twitter, this is not what I expected.

I am proud of myself, I know exactly why it happened.

I had a tweet, it didn’t go viral (as far as I’m aware anyway). It was popular though. I basically reminded people that Rowling is a middle aged bully, to ignore her. I am guessing that tweet didn’t work, so they went for this instead.

This is also proof of how stupid Twitter has gotten. The amount of trans accounts, or trans supportive accounts that have had this happen to them, is ridiculous. While people like Rowling are allowed to retweet transphobic merchandise, literally talking about people’s dicks. They’re all still up there.

A lot of us have said that if Elon Muck does buy it, we’re all coming off Twitter, including myself. I am hoping he does, I was going to say that just too myself. But it’s just getting ridiculous on there. Even though he has not bought it, the Right are tagging him nearly every single post about how the “left” are attacking their Freedom of Speech.

Truth Social

Is the name of Trump’s social media platform, and of course it’s a failure. For once, I don’t think Trump is even too blame though.

For one, you’ve got Twitter and Facebook, both of which do nothing…Like a lot of times, quiet literally. The Trump children are still on there for pete sake, and they were just as bad. I only realise that when they retweeted Rowling, but you know Rowling isn’t transphobic.

Yesterday (maybe the day before) Rowling joined in on mocking a person with PTSD. Then cried about the being the victim, then retweeted someone from Australia, who was just outright lying. Why do that on Truth Social, when Twitter just let’s that happen, and to an already “established” audience.

From this weekend on…

I am coming off of like 90% of my social media accounts.

So I mean like my Twitter (which I highly encourage none of you too follow me, ,lol), my insta. It was like I was saying on Twitter. Social media is becoming like work, it’s depressing and I really don’t want too do it, but you have too. How else will everyone know how I’m feeling? Hahahaha…But unless you’re lucky you’re not even being paid to be on social media!lol

So why not take the weekend to recharge?
