Okay Twitter… That’s Creepy…

The Project Veritas video (not “doctored” as the critics say) already showed us that Twitter shadowbans people that individual overseers disagree with (so you can Tweet all day but your Tweets are not being seen by anyone). Now we also know that the Twitter overseers are looking at direct messages from the words typed in private messages to the pictures sent… And they are selling this info to advertisers. Unlike email vendors that use an algorithm to scan inboxes and mail, Twitter has actual people looking at direct messages. The dirty old man is actually bent over a monitor and scoping out things that are supposed to be private.

I’m just using Twitter as a broadcast for my blog right now. With these new details coming forward, I would caution anyone from using it under the notion that anything is “private” in any way. It may just be the worst “social network” where privacy is concerned.

Sidenote: Twitter denies they do this but come on… It’s pretty obvious they do it. When their own employees corroborate each other… where there is smoke, there tends to be fire. The sad part… most people won’t even care because they are addicted to the social media drug.

Sidenote 2: Tech news sites defending Twitter because… Money. Come on people… don’t be stupid. If a tech site site is defending Twitter here, then they are getting money, kickbacks, or access to information.

That Shithole Comment…

The evidence is now showing more and more people from that “Closed Door” meeting have said that this comment was NEVER made. Good luck getting anyone in the media to retract it though. All last week on social media (especially Twitter) EVERYONE was talking about this. Logging in and seeing the word “Shithole” on tweet after tweet was one reason I just closed Twitter out and have been MIA as far as posting a lot there. Twitter was full of users who took a rumor, blasted it for days, re-blasted what the news media was falsely saying, and then blasted it some more in snarky jokes. I even saw a superhero T-shirt company make a very poor joke of it via a shirt for the new movie Black Panther (Wakanda is not a Shithole)…

  1. Think about this… A closed door meeting and Democrats are leaking info. What part of “CLOSED DOOR” do they not get?
  2. Think about this… Republicans with no verification quickly jump on the bandwagon calling the president racist (it’s not racist to call a place a Shithole even if he had said it. Detroit is a shithole but that’s not because of the race of any of the people… it’s because of the leftist policy that made it a shithole. If you think this terms is racist you are both and idiot and a sheep with no education who will believe whatever your leaders tell you. Words have meaning, learn the definitions.)
  3. The media ran with more unverified rumor… No shock there. No shock that they will not do a retraction either now that social media has spread what appears to be fake news, far and wide.

Another aspect of this is that people stuck up for a fake story, spread a fake story, and piled onto a fake story with no concern about the truth at all. Social media is a dumpster fire and as long as the news media relies on clicks and ads and social media to relay its word, news media will remain a dumpster fire.

The Flu Shot is a Dud…

So what does the CDC do? They are doubling down on it. The flu shot is only 10% effective this year. Sadly, the place I work requires it (that should be against the law to require anyone to take a flu shot), and I got sick not long after I got it. The flu shot is a sham and now we have the CDC out warning people to get it because a “second wave” of the flu is coming, with a different strain. You have got to be kidding me… Talk about a sham that is only for money making… the flu shot would be it. You want to know a scientific reason why the flu is so bad this year? Because people have been getting these weakened strained flu shots for years now and like penicillin, it no longer has an effect on the virus. This is science people. The flu shot is and has always been pure BS.

Star Wars Sticker Commercial

It’s a cool commercial but I wouldn’t shell out $900+ for a Google Pixel 2 phone because of Star Wars Stickers. Frankly… I’m amused that Google, an advertising company, is so dumb when it comes to advertising. The amount of money they are dropping for this advertising push is way more publicity for Star Wars The Last Jedi than for the phone that is barely in the commercial. I wouldn’t buy a Pixel 2 anyway… I’ll stick to the Moto because they make damn good phones with damn good batteries.

The Gifted Season Finale

WOW!!! What a good two hours!!! Seriously Marvel, you need to give the writers of The Gifted full control of writing all future X-men movies now that the X-men are coming back to you. This show really needs to be the springboard to future movies. We have the Hellfire Club vs the Mutant Underground now. And I told you all… Andy was becoming evil!!! Can’t wait for season 2!!!
