At least some of the parody accounts were entertaining.

Social network Twitter closed its offices on Thursday after hundreds of employees decided to leave the company after refusing to work longer under threat of dismissal by tycoon Elon Musk, who bought the platform in late October.

Billionaire Elon Musk had given them an ultimatum to either work "extremely hard" or leave the company and asked them to decide by 5pm local time on Thursday.

Those employees who left the company receive 3 months' salary.

It's official...

Dance moves worthy of an OnlyFans account.

What a stroke of genius from Elon, there are millions of Republicans out there, Elon starts a poll which gets them logging on, possibly even re signing up since their 'god' was banned, he's got them back and the Republicans followers are exactly the type of people who will actually buy a Blue badge because they will think it makes them more important than other posters.

What's also funny is that Trump himself has apparently stated he won't return anyway because of all the problems at Twitter at the moment, and that he's fine at his own TruthSocial. :lol: Let's see if he keeps it up, but it's funny anyway.

I expect Trump to change his mind for the simple fact that he can reach more people on Twitter. It's still viewed as a "mainstream" social network, despite Elon's antics.

What you can find on Twitter at the moment. It would be better if it wasn't so cold, then you could be happy. :lol:
It's Monday and @Twitter is still working.

Dear Swiss Abroad

"Thoughts are free", as a well-known song says. Will we have to worry in future that Twitter can read our thoughts? A Swiss ethicist warns of a conflict of interest on the part of Twitter and Neuralink owner Elon Musk.

Elon Musk is not only the new owner of Twitter, but also the head of a company that develops neurotechnologies to implant in the brain. According to a Swiss ethicist, this constellation represents an obvious conflict of interest, and he warns of major risks.

Why not go a little further? Green ticks for journalists?

He ought to install a phpBB test forum, scrap the ticks to save space and use good old coloured usernames instead. 🎨

According to US media reports, Twitter has blocked the accounts of at least six prominent journalists. Some of them had reported the suspension of a user account documenting all of Musk's flights as recently as the previous day.

The US short message service did not give any reasons why the journalists' accounts were blocked. Those affected work for renowned media such as CNN, "The New York Times" and "The Washington Post", among others. But freelance journalists were also affected.

"The sudden and unjustified suspension of journalists, including CNN's Donie O'Sullivan, is concerning - but not surprising," the broadcaster said. "Twitter's increasing instability and volatility should cause great concern for anyone who uses the platform." CNN is demanding an explanation from Twitter and is basing its response to the incident on it.

Do you think these “news outlets” wouldn’t have been banned had they proven to be none biased? Expect the BBC to go next.

It is funny that Musk calls himself a "free speech absolutist" though. Since when did he plan on banning for "bias?"

It's because they criticized him, not because they have a bias. Elon is known for doing this.

Twitter was never my thing. I only registered there because of the war in Ukraine. But it's best not to write anything on Twitter.
Freedom of expression in which every word is weighed in the balance now.
And yes nothing against the new owner.
And more and more fake accounts now.

Twitter has rebranded to X and has changed the logo to an X, the blue bird logo is no more.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/tw ... -rcna95880

He also has the domain x.com which redirects to twitter but will likely become the site's new domain. In addition, the company merged into X Corp. back in April, so the whole "Twitter" name is being phased out.

He even stole the unicode character to create the new logo: https://twitter.com/Syn0nymph/status/16 ... B3EDw&s=19

People like him are already destroying the world so they can rule over the ashes of it.
