Forbes article: Twitter is the worst company on the planet
LINK

They removed the article, but you can still make out some of the words. The author is disgusted by what Twitter has done and explains how to delete your account.

Twitter Is The Worst Company On Planet Earth. Here’s How To Bet Against The Stock—and Deactivate Your Account
Forbes - Jim Collins

It’s rare for a public company to expand this far in the realm of heinous behavior, but Twitter’s actions last week repelled me more than Union Carbide’s Bhopal, Boeing’s repeated failures with the 787 Max, the J&J’s Tylenol scandal and really every other corporate action I’ve seen in my life. For a social media platform to censor a world leader – while giving a voice to hate preachers like Louis Farrakhan’s Ayatollah Khamenei and even OJ Simpson – isn’t just wrong from a freedom standpoint expression, it is in fact a terrible business. So, Twitter has shown little to no sequential growth in its user base lately (details below), but it is still valued as its Big Tech growth brothers. Twitter does not increase, it decreases, when measured against the growth rate of the world economy, and this reduction will accelerate dramatically now that Twitter has offended all American conservatives with his action to ban President Trump. Only fools in Congress and Big Tech apologists would think section 230 of the Communications Decency Act should apply Twitter. It’s an editor, not a platform. Complete stop. So first of all, here’s how to deactivate your Twitter Account. I used this excellent from the Today show last week to kill my account. It took me over half an hour, and making it hard to leave is a classic Tech strategy to strengthen the number of users, but I finally succeeded. It was worth it. I will never use this platform again. But I’m doing stocks, not activism, and even though a new kind of conscious capitalism is my investment strategy for 2021, I still need to make money. Twitter On Monday, stocks plunge 7% on the pre-market and the market will soon realize that this platform will shrink considerably. Even on a good day, Twitter is a cesspool of hate speech, lies (including investment advice), and a “trending” algorithm that appears to have a remarkably consistent left bias. I won’t be the last person to cancel it.

Wait a minute, didn't Forbes just publish something about blacklisting Trump admin officials?

Twitter is a faux-tech outfit with no competitive moat and a customer base filled with—it would seem—idiots. It’s too small to be considered Big Tech, but the media has given it outsized influence.

So true. “Outrage on Twitter over...” media articles lead to a relatively small number of such posts likely including bots.

All part of the social media influence facade.

He's right and we should join y'all in condemning Twitter. This is a bad precedent.

Also, what are your opinions on the 230 allowance?

That poster will think 230 allowance refers to some kind of proposed stimulus payment fwiw.

Apparently you cannot defend or backup what you posted. You show currently online, and have had 5 replies to your post. Some of them asking questions which could be pertinent to a conversation.. yet you haven't responded. Not surprised.

Twitter has managed to supplant Comcast, EA, and Activision for shitty business practices.
