30. Because of gardening Twitter

Nov 2023

Most of the British gardeners I followed on Twitter are still on X. Twitter wasn't Just about politics, it was a convenient way for people with common interests to connect. I haven’t yet found a good replacement for gardening Twitter. I also follow some historic clothing accounts—same story there.

Just so you know....X is What the former location ..."Twitter" is now called. Stuart G Nov 2023 #1

Totally agree. This is big corporate knocking down bad corporate, quite a refreshing turn, imo. ancianita Nov 2023 #19
If people stop using twitter, totally & completely then it will become totally worthless. Stuart G Nov 2023 #22

They're not ON X, they do ad buy there for extremists, but now they've "paused" their money stream. OK by me. ancianita Nov 2023 #20

Yup TSExile Nov 2023 #13
I hear ya. But they really do hurt X and are rich enough not to really need it anymore. That's a probability, imo. ancianita Nov 2023 #21
Sadly, that is true PatSeg Nov 2023 #28
Glad you agree, This is a Big Multi-Corporate Bitch Slap at this NAZI billionaire. ancianita Nov 2023 #32
And Musk is so delusional, PatSeg Nov 2023 #35

Paid 44 billion. Now reportedly worth 4 billion BootOutTheGoons Nov 2023 #7
4 Billion Is Too Low ProfessorGAC Nov 2023 #10
I've heard claims ranging from 4 billion to around 10 BootOutTheGoons Nov 2023 #11
Absolutely ProfessorGAC Nov 2023 #12
Pausing them? How about cancelling all ad buys already made and in the future? n/t Liberal In Texas Nov 2023 #14
They could, indeed; Elon knows they don't want to do business with X markets, and it could be permanent. ancianita Nov 2023 #23
So, this is already happening, and X is now becoming ...WORTHLESS. Stuart G Nov 2023 #29
Hahahaha. Musk stikes and weakens X again. Let's face it, he's an anti-Semitic, racist, Putin-favoring winger. brush Nov 2023 #31
Hanging out with Nazis and facists is bad. Don't hang out with Nazis and fascists. Initech Nov 2023 #36
Interesting that he doesn't wonder why those other corps don't hang out with Nazis. You'd think he'd maybe suspect ancianita Nov 2023 #38
