The Sickening End of Twitter


I’ve been aware of Elon Musk’s purchase and destruction of Twitter as it’s been going on the past few years.


I didn’t follow it with bated breath because while I enjoy Twitter, and I’ve had some fun interactions on it, I didn’t really care. And there wasn’t anything I could do about it anyway.


But yesterday I noticed that my iPhone replaced the Twitter icon and name with the asinine “X.”


I was so disgusted, I moved it to one of the rear menu screens so I didn’t have to look at it every time I used my phone.


Years ago there was a documentary about my filmmaker friend Jim Wynorski, Popatopolis. In one scene, he is on stage somewhere raging that he hates, hates, hates a certain actress.


He points out that if he says why he hates her, he could get in trouble. But saying that he hates her is protected by the first amendment.


I hate Elon Musk.


And this is sad, because I really don’t hate anybody.

Sad is a strong word, but the downfall of Twitter does feel like someone took a slightly used vehicle, still in good condition, and wrapped it around a telephone pole—just because he could.
