Pero pronto, gracias a E**n M**k y su avaricia, no quedará evidencia de ese tiempo en la #red. No esperaba sentirme así de mal, francamente.

So far, so good. I'll see how long it takes to get my #Twitter archive.
"Whatever your thoughts about the social network [formerly known as Twitter], a backup is a good idea."

#MastodonGuides Dec 9, 2022
David August @davidaugust has created some nicely illustrated guides to aid in migrating from Twitter to Mastodon.
Twitter mortuus est. Vivat Mastodon
27) Day 269 since the #ElonMusk Twitter acquisition and the latest change appears to be a pure exercise in narrcisism and self sabotage.
#Twitter is not in need of renaming and rebranding, it is in need of investment to prop its creaky technical infrastructure, and a serious content managment effort which might lure advertisers back; they're not fond of #HardRight wackadoos and agents of #disinformation
Don't hold your breath folks
26) It’s no surprise that advertisers have fled #Twitter. #ElonMusk has admitted a 50% drop in revenues. Those advertisers are not going to return soon knowing that their ad placements could pop up next to a racist post from the likes of Nick Fuentes.
Coupled with $13 billion of debt, the company is in more than a shaky position. Are #oligarch types going to be willing to throw more money at this sinking ship to curry favor with his Muskness?
I’d also suggest that the financial situation for #Twitter is increasingly precarious. The debt burden of $12 billion and Twitter’s ability to service the payments is questionable and may threaten ongoing operations. #ElonMusk May need to ante up again.
With thanks to @miah_he for the great piece
24) How do signups look for #Threads?
Is the volume accelerating or not?
Here’s a chart
First 24 hours yields 50 million
Second 50 million takes a little more than 3 days.
Unsurprisingly the growth is not linear despite the extraordinary volume.
Will the next 10 days yield another 100 million?
I’m guessing not.
Does anyone get it?
Seriously I wish I could write with as much comedic profanity and stay on point at the same time
Pretty surprising that the app was launched without support for #HashTags!
How many of those 70 million know that threads is part of the #Meta, sell your data to anyone complex, is a question that is likely not on the radar.
15) Meanwhile the Facebook/Meta complex has lumbered onto to the stage to take a crack at #Twitter’s microblogging empire
14) Another clownish misstep from #Twitter is drawing to a close. Clearly an attempt to force people to register on the site, I imagine the hope was to increase the MAUs
13) Increasingly #Twitter looks like a seedy, battered, casino property. There are plenty of adds for erectile dysfunction and bongs likely encouraging mainstream advertsiers to stay away. Or might it be the bigotry encourage by #ElonMusk under the guise of #FreeSpeech?
The #NYT is out with a story based on an internal presentation from Twitter showing a 59% decline in YOY ad revenues for April.
All is clearly not well
I get it's difficult to walk away from a large following, but do you really want to continue putting money in this #oligarch's pocket?
I wonder if Dorsey is feeling more anti-Musk now that #BlueSky is making the news?
/6 Day 184 - What are the consequences of #Twitter laying off 75% of its workforce?
Two factor authentication used to be available for all accounts, it is now limited to Twitter blue payers. This recent removal, coupled with the lack of staff to assist with hacks, degrades the network. Classify this one under foolish #ElonMusk monetization attempts
/5 - Day 183 - The elimination of the #BlueCheck has degraded #Twitter’s utility as a #news source. The new implementation has nothing to do with authentication and verification, if anything it is a propagandist’s delight. In #Musk’s conception of #SocialMedia, truth, veracity and honesty are of little value
So much for the democracy of the internet or whether the quality of your content should be prioritized by opaque algorithms
/3 -Day 180 Kyle Chayka of the New Yorker writing on the decay of the largest social networks with a particular focus on #Twitter:
“we can’t rely on large digital platforms that are motivated by profit above all”
Certainly makes the case for #Mastodon
What does it take?
Where the person using the @ Music account on #twitter had built up 11 million followers, and Musk wanted it, so he just took it away.
Even better, offered the owner replacement Twitter accounts that were actively being used. 🤦♂️
A pesar de haber escrito un libro técnico sobre #Twitter en el pasado, abogo por explicar las razones de abandonar esa red social y evitar convertirme en un simple miembro de otra plataforma más.
Musk takes @X without paying owner
Less than a year after Twitter launched in 2006, Gene X Hwang secured the @X handle on Twitter and over the years attracted over 56,000 followers.
Yesterday, his account vanished, replaced by a "Nothing to see here" message.
Today, @X is in the hand of Elon Musk, who simply took @X, deleted its contents and copied over @twitter's content and its 65.9 million followers.
The company reassigned Hwang's existing content to @x12345678998765.
Agreed, there was a lot of gatekeeping and NIMBYism during the great #TwitterMigration last year and that was off putting for many.
We should be a more welcoming community as a whole, saying hi goes a long way to #newcomers.
Also, some people really need to back off on the whole CW policing, you can come off as unwelcoming & an asshole. While there are some topics where there's consensus that CW should be used, for other topics, others may not agree with its use.

🚨 Unfortunate news - Twitter stopped the public display of user profile pages on June 30, 2023
You can no longer see a Twitter user's profile without login. The Feedbro Web browser plugin and all similar RSS readers that can read public Twitter feeds no longer work 😢
For me, using Feedbro was a way to view social media posts from users I follow who haven't yet migrated to Mastodon.
