Techdirt Podcast Episode 337: Will Elon Kill Twitter?

from the fail-whale dept

This week, we have a special joint episode with The Neoliberal Podcast, discussing the question on a lot of minds: just what the hell is going on at Twitter now that Elon Musk is in charge? He’s owned the company for less than a month, and it’s already in chaos. Mike sits down with Neoliberal Podcast host Jeremiah Johnson to discuss why content moderation is so difficult at scale, whether Mastodon can be a real Twitter replacement, Elon’s erratic and dumb moves, and the big question: whether or not Twitter might die.

A random guy on the internet. says:

Ethnic tensions are not a joke...

Seriously you went on trying to make a point of the various ethnic tensions that are around the world and how to police that to giving up and laughing while you do it. It is one of those tasks that we must at least try not to fuel those tensions. Because the modern genocides after world war two has been result of ethnics tensions feeding into tribalism to end up in genocide by lies and mass media. It is not okay to throw ones hands up in the air and say that we are going to have arbitrary “american neoliberal centered”-enforcement of what is bigotry, no if you are responsible for a global mass media like reddit and/or twitter it is your job to make sure that you don’t contribute to ethnic tension.
