Heck I've even used unboxing videos to see how to re-box something to send back as a return to make sure I get my refund.
Ya I wasn’t really thinking about YouTube but fair enough. More Twitter Facebook Instagram and TikTok.

TikTok's been good for spreading music. Much more negative than positives with TikTok but lots of people, especially teens etc, find new (and old) music through the app.

Twitter is even better than Instagram, TikTok or Facebook because I guess sometimes you can get a sense for news sometimes kinda. Those 3 are just… shudder.

What’s your opinion on those 3?

Don't have TikTok or Facebook. Insta is fine for photo sharing but it's become a little too facebook-y lately.

I think something at Twitter HQ has exploded, tweet and DM functionality has been completely offline for around a half hour now.

Elon probably 'forgot' to pay the ISP this month.

They're running in terror because House Republicans are threatening to prosecute for interfering with the 2020 election.

Now you can't follow anyone new as it says you've reached your limit on people you can follow, regardless of the amount you're currently following. And I've seen a couple white wall of words sized tweets already this evening, they've clearly massively increased the character limit on tweets. This whole thing is such a troll job by Musk...

Twitter literally behaves differently every day. It's complete madness.

Elon’s neglect of Twitter seems to be doing well for Tesla.

There's supposedly only like 300,000 Twitter Blue subs. That's a looong way from paying the interest on the debt.

4000 character tweets more or less defeat the scrollable purpose of the platform. Brevity was it's selling point. Social media meant for short attention spans.

Might as well rename it TL;DNR.

I'm completely shocked the programmers responsible for the worst auto wipers and auto high beams in the history of automobiles are having trouble keeping social media software problem free.

Rumored new Twitter rules:

- 200 DMs limit per day (group chats included)
- 20 tweets limit per day (includes retweets, quote tweets and replies)
- 4 photos or 1 video per day (media tweets are counted separately from the general tweets)

Twitter Blue users will have no limits

Oh man, why even stop there at this point?

Tiered pricing for time of day depending on your local time zone.

Paid emoticons.

Tiered pricing for promoting tweets.

Paid formatting (text size/colour/font).

Put a price to everything and make this misery end!

I'm sure soon you'll be able to sign up for fully automated tweeting.
Only $15,000.
It's not available yet, but just give us the money and we'll let you know when it's ready.
We promise it'll be very soon.
