By leaving Twitter you're giving them the forum

Why leave? Thatís like giving the right full run of the house.

Instead stay. Block or Donít follow right wing loonies. And use the forum as a tool.

1. No. They'll leave if the liberals go

They only hang around because they have people to antagonize
There are reasons why they didn't congregate to all those reich wing social media sites -- it is only filled with people who share their opinions. There's no one to aggravate

2. Lately I've been telling all the Russia supporters that

their penises are going to fall off on victory day May 9. I would miss doing things like that.

3. Wait & see might be the best option. i'm not registered, but I gave my doggie a throwaway email and

registered her. Never posted or followed (well I guess she followed Betty White- lol) and never even liked anything. I only did it so I could continue to use internet-only access to a few accounts like Laurence Tribe and Neil Katyal and I never downloaded the app.

But apparently, Musk intends to make all accounts non-anonymous. That might help some issues, but I won't share personal information with him anymore I would FB (and I never registered there either).

So, I guess I'll continue as is until I (or my sweet doggy girl is tossed off).

4. Don't feed Twitter revenues by using the platform. It all trickles up to the owner. He don't need it

5. I can't leave Twitter. I never signed up for it.

In my opinion, Twitter is anti-thinking, sound bites for twits.

8. I'm staying to see how it all plays out, and by blocking the MAGATS

you are effectively denying them the forum to antagonize. The idiots were spewing 'Bye Felicia' tweets to the 'libs' yesterday. It made it super easy to identify and block their stupid asses. When the people I follow leave, then there will be no reason to stay, but for now it's not yet a done deal with Musk, and it's still the first place to find breaking news. And for a news junkie like me, that's valuable.

11. How is the Orange Anus's social media platform doing without a non-wingnut

Membership ? I think it just the opposite. Leave Twitter in mass and leave it in vacuum. Leave it to the bag of assholes Musk is going to let in.

16. All good answers!

So much diversity in thought here!

Thatís what I told my slowly getting more and more conservative son in law yesterday. You canít herd liberals like you can conservatives.

That says SOMETHING about intellect.
