Twitter Built a Whole New Feature to Deal With Donald Trump’s Rage-Tweeting

Internet • Views: 22,414

When it comes to Twitter’s enforcement of their rules against harassment and hate speech, they’ve long made an exception for a certain well-known politician, whose tweets have remained visible despite containing misogyny, witness tampering and intimidation, copious amounts of all types of racism, and credible threats of nuclear war.

Can you guess who I’m referring to?

In any case, Twitter still isn’t going to enforce their policies for this certain well-known politician; you’ll still be able to see his tweets, but now they’ll be behind a warning notice and you’ll have to click to see whatever vomitous mind-rot the malevolent toad in the White House has emitted now.

I do love how nobody is willing to go on the record and say YES THIS IS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP, though.

re: #92 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

I woke up last Monday to discover a wasp’s nest the size of a grapefruit on my back terrace. I managed to remove it, but they have since returned twice to start rebuilding.

Nuke from orbit.

The paper wasp nest I removed from my stairwell last autumn.

Well, it’s been an interesting evening, weatherwise.

About 4:30 a thunderstorm went past in the usual direction west to east. It was also fading away. Which is normal.

Then it stopped moving east, just sat there pouring rain on the area just east of me. It started to grow in size and intensity.

Now it is backing up (drifting west) and again pouring rain on my neighborhood. I have lived here 30 years and never seen that before.

Of course a few weeks ago, I also had a tornado touch down nearby, going from south to north. I had also never seen that before.

Generally, the Bull Run Mountains to the west of me tend to split up storms so that they usually flow north and south of me. And often completely miss me.

I also see that I have a clogged gutter and will need to get up in the roof at some point to clear it out. But not tonight.

Party elite discovering that once they unleash the populist monster that it will devour them:

Tory members who would sacrifice union urged to ‘rethink’

Conservative party members who consider Scottish independence a price worth paying for Brexit should “rethink”, according to work and pensions secretary Amber Rudd.

She told STV News she was “amazed” at a YouGov survey last week which found 63% of Tory members would prefer Brexit to keeping Scotland or Northern Ireland in the UK.

re: #86 Eventual Carrion

Groundhogs under porch for me. Hoping ammonia/water mixture drives them away.

When faced with outside critters that are visiting areas I would prefer that they do not, my first step is to spread some moth crystals. This has included skunks under a porch and wasps in my mailbox.

I remember working summers at the Boy Scout Camp in Tionesta and watching farmers and locals spend their weekend afternoons shooting the groundhogs digging up their fields and pastures. I would suspect that this is probably not a good plan, though for under somebody’s front porch.

In terms of mice in the house, most recently, out of curiosity, I conducted an experiment by trying one package each of the major mousetrap traps available locally.

At the end of the infestation, multiple different poison bait traps probably accounted for one, Tomcat brand snap traps got the remaining 7. All of the clever and humane traps that I set out got exactly zero.

Tionesta is a nice place. All along that area. The drive from here where I am to Tionesta is a nice ride (in summer, not winter). It is about 60 miles from where I sit to there. You leave here in the foothills and it is steady climbing up and down gradually growing rock walls. My cousins went to Franklin schools, which is about half way from here to Tionesta. My little sisters husband grew up around Warren and we would get away and head up there to party years ago.

I’m older than Marco and, unlike him, was alive and old enough to understand WTF was going on when Batista’s regime was in power and when it all went sideways.
I also remember Che Guevara, who contrary to Marco’s genetic memory, was not

a murderous sociopath who executed hundreds after unfair show trials &during missile crisis wanted Cuba to “sacrifice itself to nuclear arms,that its ashes might serve as a basis for new societies.”

JFC, Marco is a lunatic.

It is amazing how history gets re-written by those who weren’t even there.

re: #43 Patricia Kayden

The reality is that Pelosi’s majority in the House is not that big, and many Democrat Congressfolk come from districts which could switch back to (R).

This is the real problem in America: America made Trump, Trump is the id of right-wing America made flesh.

The problem is not Pelosi. She is just doing what she has to do in order to keep the majority together for the few battles they think they can win.

This is also why we’re in deeper problems than simply this or that stupid decision by Trump - what we’re seeing is a cresting of a battle between those who want to go backwards vs. those who think there are still important changes to be made in this country in regards to justice and equality.

And I here will repeat one of my biggest laments: young people are the lowest turn-out demographic. Especially for primaries. And so now the Democrats running for President have to appeal to an older demo for getting the nomination. This is just one reason why Biden has a big advantage.

It’s one thing to go buy a pair of Nike shoes (which one wanted anyway) in support of football players who want to protest. It’s another to actually vote - as in repeatedly vote including in primaries.

Tweeting is not voting.

Instagramming is not voting.

Buying Nike is a type of voting in the economic sense but is not voting in the political sense that is needed.

We can only do what we been taught, what we have seen work, but we can do it better. If the knowledge we hold is invalid, if the human material is utterly different, then the future will rise or fall despite us. I will not be sorry for the going, but for those we leave behind.
