    The only policy that means a crap in twitter these days...

    The changes that have occurred, including allowing the tabilan to buy ticks and amplification, along with the blue tick destruction of my news feed means I barely go into twatter once or twice a week to check on messages.

    Life without Twitter really is possible.

    Solution is easy: stop using twatter, and it will die at last.

      I've never used it and never been to the Twitter web site. The only time I see Twitter is in The Reg and occasional newspaper articles quoting Twitter. I really don't care tuppence about it.

    Twitter - Never ending laughs since Elon took over!

    Twitter is just a raging dumpster fire, every day there's some madcap bullshit spewing from the outflow of Elon's latest toy!
