“Elon Musk’s takeoever of Twitter promises to level the playing field between citizen journalists and the legacy media that seems to walk in lockstop these days. But legacy media nuked itself long before Musk. Several newspapers, television networks and blogs are tossing employees overboard because of the downturn in the economy. Yet the New York Times union is planning a walkout to demand higher wages. Good luck with that.”

Given how vicious legacy media has been towards citizen media…I hope it will not be much longer, before legacy media entirely implodes.

We need media with integrity…and we are living in a time when many niche communities want their own media produced, from within their own community…largely because it will be produced by people who understand, and speak for that community…They aren’t being entirely lost, by some distant company funded by billions of dollars, and owned by special interest groups and individuals.

The legacy medias traditional audience is dying…and the majority of the rest of us, simply do not want the slanted, misleading product they have to offer…

…It’s pissing off a lot of citizens, watching legacy media doing all it can to destroy what citizen media has spent decades creating.

“Wizards of the Coast is removing “race” from DnD, and players are reacting on social media. Some are blasting WotC because of bending the knee to faux media outrage, while others are complaining that the replacement term “species” is just as bad. Oh, and Oxford recognizes “goblin mode” as a dictionary entry and it means being selfish and greedy. Meanwhile, JK Rowling…”

“Dungeons & Dragons is dropping the term ‘race’ completely from One D&D, because of it somehow being ‘problematic’ in current year. Um, we’re talking about fictitious monsters and NOT people, but welcome to Current Year. Then we talk about Wizards of the Coast losing millions in revenue from last year.”

These Controversial Accounts Are Set To Be Reinstated By Elon Musk…

“For a variety of reasons – denying the 2020 election result, passing along COVID “misinformation,” targeting others for harassment, etc. – any number of Twitter users have previously been and remain banned from the platform, including the likes of Roger Stone, Steve Bannon and Sidney Powell. But now Elon Musk has announced he will likely be reinstating these accounts and more. But will Twitter become a raging hellscape as a result?

Jimmy and The Convo Couch’s Craig “Pasta” Jardula discuss which type of misinformation and threats would get you banned from social media and which wouldn’t.”

Elon is going to unban accounts that neither violated the law, nor spammed?

…Still waiting…though, I’ve gotten no form letter response back from my last appeal…So, who knows.

“At a recent White House press conference, a front-row reporter asked Biden spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre if the Biden administration was monitoring Twitter since Elon Musk had taken over the social media platform, specifically wondering about the alleged “misinformation” that might be receiving a warm welcome on Musk’s Twitter. Jean-Pierre reassured the collected journalists that the White House was keeping a close eye on the goings-on over at Twitter.

Jimmy and The Convo Couch’s Craig “Pasta” Jardula discuss reporters’ eagerness to censor when they should be the most aggressive defenders of the First Amendment.”

“If Apple and Google take Twitter out of their app stores, Elon Musk says he’ll just start making his own cell phones. And the mad lad would do it. Then Wil Wheaton thinks a rich guy buying one website is the end of Western civilization. And Wheaton left Twitter ages ago.”

“DC Comics is reportedly telling its comic book creators to leave Twitter and go use some hole-in-the-wall app called “Hive.” How fitting. If only DC Comics had told its creatives to stay off Twitter 4 or 5 years ago, things might have escalated the way they did…”
