To Be Fair:
Hey, what happened to Gruber's "toughen up" stance against political correctness?

Twitter is too hot to touch. Without thought control and censorship Twitter won't be acceptable to leftist sensibilities, and they're the one that do ad buys.

Eventually someone is going to pick Twitter up for a song, cut the headcount by 90%, and stuff it full of adbots, sniffbots, and annoybots. Hard to say how long it'll last like that, but could be a while.

enough already:
Gruber's peer group is very liberal, so he has a lot of pressure to join the regressive left.

That said, Twitter is really sucking at abuse. Facebook has had a nuanced approach for a long time, helping people help themselves and craft messages to friends politely explaining why they felt hurt, for example; Twitter's abuse programs are crisis-driven, autocratic, opaque, biased as hell, and rather Kafka-esque. I don't think anyone is happy with it.

Facebook has your identity, which no doubt turns down a lot of the flaming.

I'm glad that there doesn't appear to be a way to set up an anonymous messaging system and rake in the bucks. You shouldn't be able to make insane profits off of bothering people.

Now, if everyone was using app.net, this surely wouldn't be a problem.

Leftists are fucking fascists. As soon as you disagree with them, they start harassing you online, start calling your workplace so you get fired and they want to censor everything.

Fuck you John Gruber! You piece of alcoholic shit!

It's a difficult task, to monetizing a megaphone.

In Russia, megaphone monetizes you!

webOS & BB10 Forever:
Maybe Twitter can merge with BlackBerry, so that BBM, coupled perhaps with Twitter, can be a meaningful messaging app. BlackBerry would get a software platform it can privatize for its enterprise and government clients. Screw WhatsApp!

Gruber is one of the Toxic Trolls that make Twitter unbearable.

Gruber is part of the regressive left, he's a full on SJW.

Twitter has lost credibility since banning Milo Yiannopolis.

anonymous is right-- I once defeneded a software developer who was being called sexist based on a misrepresentation, and it happened my twitter avatar was a woman at that time, so a bunch of leftist men assumed I was a woman and started sending me vicious rape threats.

Turns out the trolls do make rape threats-- but they are leftist trolls. (The only ones I've gotten rape threats from.)
