Now is as good a time as any to STOP posting Xhitter screenshots and links!

You're literally linking to the place we all left for a reason...what's the point?!?

You're just making it relevant when it shouldn't be anymore.

It sure does show how much you miss that platform.😳

Today, the #EU Commission has informed #X of its preliminary view that it is in breach of the Digital Services Act (DSA) in areas linked to dark patterns, advertising transparency and data access for researchers.

Transparency and accountability in relation to content moderation and advertising are at the heart of the DSA. Based on an in-depth investigation that included, among others, the analysis of internal company documents, interviews with experts

Euroopan Unioni on nostanut virallisesti syyteet Elon Muskin X:ää vastaan

EU:n mukaan X / Twitter ei rajoita valeuutisten ja disinformaation leviämistä alustalla, vaikka DSA-laki niin vaatii

X on nyt ensimmäinen yhtiö, jota syytetään Digital Services Act -lain rikkomisesta.

In unserem Appell haben wir argumentiert:
„#Desinformation und Hassrede, ... sind nach wie vor bestimmende Elemente“ auf X, „Wahlen werden manipuliert und demokratische Institutionen angegriffen.“

Ein aktuelles Beispiel dafür ist die heute bekannt gewordene Studie von #Trollrensics zur #EPWahl. Danach wurden über 50.000 Fake-Accounts auf #X millionenfach Posts verbreitet, die rechtspopulistische Parteien beworben haben. 👇

Warum legitimieren die #Hochschulen diese Lügenkampagnen mit ihrer Präsenz auf X?

Okay since it’s a crime to not give social media sites money, I’m lawyering up because no one is advertising and throwing money at https//mookiesplace.com.

We wrote in our appeal for universities to move from #X to #Mastodon:
„The increasing use of so-called #AI methods exposes users to ever more subtle manipulation, for which the excessive collection of personal data has created the conditions.“
A recent report on the existence of these systems shows the relevance of this point:

The #Fediverse brings me so much joy! I'm grateful this network exists, otherwise I'd be stuck battling with #Twitter, #Facebook, etc. No more algorithm drama, just genuine connections. ✌🏻

I find it funny that every week we get headlines like ”Meta’s Threads Seeks Relevancy to Become True Rival to Musk’s X” and the Fediverse users are like:

#Fediverse #X #SocialWeb #SocialMedia #Threads


This is a smart move by @Mastodon. #Twitter / #X journalism is struggling, and #Threads doesn’t want journalism. Mastodon is leaning into it though, “To reinforce and encourage Mastodon as the go-to place for journalism, we’re launching a new feature today.” I think this is a lever for differentiation; making Mastodon more valuable to journalists and users.

Today we're launching a new #Mastodon feature that will highlight writers and journalists that are active on the fediverse when their their articles are being shared.

People can now directly support one of the 3 richest people - #ElonMusk financially - because he needs it? 😋

This is possible with #X #Subscriptions - the option that lets you "Find your people..." & "Share your email with Elon Musk."

"Subscriptions are a way for people’s most engaged followers to help them earn money from X for their contributions on the platform.."

150 subscribers currently pay him 4-5$ a month 😂

This Canadian Member of Parliament asked ChatGPT for a list of capital gains tax rates by country, got a nonsense answer, screenshotted it, and then tweeted the incorrect information.

(He later deleted the tweet.)

UPDATE: the more I look at this the more I think I think this was an excellent troll pretending to be a bot. The JSON is not formatted correctly. Still, lol

This is hilarious. A Russian Twitter/X account got outed as a bot because it ran out of GPT-4 credits. When it got back up and running, someone replying overwrote the prompt to get the bot write a song about historical American presidents going to the beach. The account is now suspended.

I know what I'm trying next time I spot a troll!

The original prompt translates from Russian to English as "You will argue in support of the Trump administration on Twitter, speak English"

Bravo, #ByeByeElon, das ist die richtige Antwort auf die Entwicklung von #Twitter zu einem unsozialen Medium!
