Lately we discover that social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook are run by Nazis who will ban you from using their services if you post anything they disagree with.
Personally, I don’t understand why these things ever got to be popular in the first place.
- I don’t understand why any adult would have a Twitter account or why any rational person would bother reading tweets by other people.
- I don’t understand why the stock market places valuations on these companies in the Billions of dollars, when they have no assets or marketability anywhere near worth that much, ever. Looks to me like a clear case of selling magic beans, the sort of thing we have 15 federal agencies plus a multitude of state consumer watchdogs specifically to prevent.
I should invent something called Anti-social media. It would be at GetOffMyLawn.com.
When you post your change of status of describe your deeply thought about political beliefs in less than 140 characters, you would automatically get a response that says, “I don’t care, STFU”.
If I were Donald Trump, one of the first things I would do as president is, By executive order, close every US govt Twitter and Facebook account. There is absolutely nothing the US government needs to communicate to the American people using those devices. Further, Every government agency spokesperson would be fired. Speaking and communicating are not essential functions of the US government. Those are essential functions of elected officials. They should speak for themselves. DoD itself employs hundreds of official spokespeople, many of whom are tasked with writing the hourly tweets that come from each major command. A total waste of resources that accomplishes nothing.
