I read all day long on here that people hate jack (but still use twitter lol). trying not to be too much of a sheep, the opinion I've formed of him from what I've read isn't consistent with what others say of him. i might simply not know enough and be completely wrong, but it's just what I've formed from what I've read, and I'll be hoenst I haven't delved deep into it to find problems or good things either. welp

idk whenever I've read interviews I tend to like his thoughts generally. compared to say zuckerberg, he appears to have views on the direction of twitter that are orders of magnitude healthier than that of facebook. I can't remember anything specific, just that feeling after interview.

no matter how you run a social media you'll have haters. I think the general "mission statement" of twitter is far better than almost any other one


what are these acts of direct support of nazis on twitter? the closest I know of it is a sub par effort to cull facist posts

same. i have no idea who the guy is really except he's just @jack and i don't really care to know any more about him, same reason i don't watch tmz or read about celebrities

idk if i agree that this is entirely on the roni. it's definitely the trigger but our big wet president and his sycophants all over the press, social media, and our lives is absolutely aggravating it for me. it'd be one thing if we were all in this together and united in fighting the virus, but the constant gas lighting and deliberate riling up is what's making it so much worse. imo

theyíre not going to do poo poo besides put up some signs and have a minimum wage slave cast member tell you to mask up. ďthe happiest place on earthĒ isnít going to eject people who arenít wearing masks and even if they did it would turn out that 90% of the guests suffer from asthma. the mouse still needs to turn a profit, after all. orlando probably wonít be as bad with people taking it back with them as the spring break shitshow from a couple of months back but i expect this to be noticeable.

I was referring to my beliefs about him before this conversation we had here

now I have heard things that contradict what I thought I know, and conclude something along the lines of "people who probably know more than me say he's bad, so he probably is"

I thought he seemed ok. turns out I was probably wrong.
