Are you a person who writes words on the interwebs for fun and/or profit? Do you make jokes and do hashtags on The Twitters? If so, this SHOCKING! revelation from Twitter CEO Dick Costolo is not going to SHOCK! you so much as make you go, "Uh yeah, DICK, we know."
OK, maybe I am #DoingItWrong, but don&#039;t you have to affirmatively choose to follow someone in order to see their tweets on your timeline? I mean, you don&#039;t/can&#039;t ever see even a single tweet from some dipshit unless you have clicked &quot;Follow&quot; on his profile with your own little pointer via your own account. So I don&#039;t get it -- how can some microdick &quot;invade&quot; your Twitter Timeline and harass you by sending you all kinds of smack if you haven&#039;t, uh, (metaphorically) opened the door and <b>let him in?</b> Don&#039;t you prescreen people before you click &quot;Follow?&quot; If you did, then YTF did you decide to start seeing that asswipe&#039;s Tweets?
A Twitter feed is kind of like having a bunch of radios in your house that are all tuned to different stations and are all on at the same time. The stations that they are tuned to have all been chosen by you. If one day one of them switches formats and starts hosting, say, Rushbo&#039;s show, you don&#039;t have to put up with listening to it. You can just turn that particular one off and toss it in the trash.
So is just about everybody else, but most of them don&#039;t realize it.
Yeah, but most people opt-out.
I&rsquo;m relatively new to facepoop (joined for business reasons) and after the initial rush wore off I&rsquo;ve unfriended about 25% because of the awful shit the continuously post. Right wing nuts went first. I&rsquo;ll probably be down to 2 or 3 people in a few more months.
Don&#039;t put your Twitter Dick Shots up in Florida!
Unless you want to go to uh, Calvinball Court? To testify or something, maybe, who knows.
Should Twitter actually follow through on this, and start deleting trolls, how long do you wager until some trollsack Wingnut cries out that his First Mendment Constatushonal Twatting Rights are getting infringed upon?
Wanna know how I&#039;ve avoided trolls? By not posting political statements on my Fecesbook, just drag queen, professional lady rasslers and female body builders. Nobody but fellow freaks ever comes near.
