What happened to those people in here saying that Musk knew what he was doing by removing radar and that FSD with cameras was fine, actually better because more sensor data was somehow too overwhelming.

So Musk's solution to a complex problem is to effectively cripple the entire way Twitter works in the first place (eg. Forced engagement with mutuals)

I never understood what benefit that offered to Twitter anyways. Is it just a leftover from when mobile-first wasn't a thing and they wanted to promote the app over the website?

It's ok for Musk to tweet his own location. But he just doxxed 10's of thousands of people without their consent, and everyone who re-tweets Musk's tweet in under 24 hours is violating the ToS.

Some more journalists suspended from Twitter, this time apparently for something they did outside of Twitter. WP columnist Taylor Lorenz was banned with no explanation after she tweeted at Musk if he wanted to comment on some information she had (she didn't mention the info), so just trying to get his attention. Only 2 other tweets on her account.

Then her account was banned, later Musk says it was a temp suspension for prior "doxxing", possibly in 2020 in an article in the NYT or an April 2022 article in the WP.

So now you have to be careful what you do ANYWHERE otherwise Musk might ban you from Twitter.

Today's announcement banning links to other social media sites and even linktree is quite possibly the stupidest and most counterproductive decision he's made since taking over. An entire e-commerce economy centered around filtering traffic from twitter to their web store or business and vice versa. All artists, authors, online content creators just lost their reason to have twitter. I knew he was an odious ####### but he's is even worse than I thought

To me this actually seems reasonable if he slows for paid users to link their profile to these sites. The creatives on Twitter gain huge benefit in exchange for this advertising so if as a feature of paid twitter you get to do this then that would be reasonable.

It does not appear that the policy allows for it.

It seems pretty reasonable to not permit tweets saying I’m quitting twitter come follow me at xxxx. But per usual with Musk it’s poor implementation.

Does it though? To me it comes across as petty, and a severe lack of confidence that you can provide something better than what people are leaving for. Basically reinforces the reason people are leaving, and will incentivize more.

One of the biggest assets you provide is the ability to disseminate information to large groups of people. Limiting the ability of your competitors to weaponize that seems reasonable.

I do agree that it reinforces the reason people leave but if you consider this a “Trust Thermocline” you have to competing things going on. How much have you lost trust in twitter verus how difficult is it to replace the the service. In my opinion making it more difficult to maintain contact lists outweighs the annoyance this creates with twitter so pushed the point of catostophic user loss out in time further.
