Twitter under Musk....

It's largely irrelevant to 99% of the population anyway.Be more interesting to see where we are on the "unequal" top ten?

Here you go.

Welcome yourself into the new modern crisis

I've no idea what a Gini coefficient is but since the USA is on the far left I assume that it implies greater inequality. Given that assumption though, doesn't it seem a interesting that the Nordic countries are often cited as having a high quality of life due to their adoption of socialist principles? I'm not saying that it's necessarily the case, just that it's often the impression that is given.

He isn't attempting to 'sort out paedophilia'. He's said he is making removing child sexual abuse material from Twitter a priority. Regardless of his personality, regardless of his ethics in other areas, surely we should all support his effort to attempt to do something about it.

As for trusting him, Musk has done more to rid Twitter of cse material in weeks than the previous bosses did in a decade. So yeah, I trust him on this issue more than I trust the people who were dealing with it before.

Well done him, but that's one small corner of the dark side of Twitter, and only because he claims a personal interest in it. There's no sign of any overall policy.

It can be measured in different ways according to whether you take taxation and other demographic things into account. More info here and some contradictory charts. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gini_coefficient

Well Kanye's got the bum's rush again. He'd only been back for 5 minutes. Some moderation of content still going on it seems.

I didn't look last night, though I suppose it depends what you look at anyway. How was it mental?

Lol. I think he's just Ye now, legally anyway.

He has the signs of a bipolar person who isn't taking his meds. His behaviour reminds me of my friend telling me about the spells when her late husband wouldn't take his medications. Upsetting and alarming in equal measures for all concerned, but played out in public in this case sadly.

I think a certain segment of American political society figured they could use and control him but now he's ended up on Infowars and even Alex Jones seems to think he's being a bit extra.

Yes i agree that he need mental help more than anything

Well, Alex Jones seemed like an moderate, everytime Alex Jones tried to steer him into a more ''morederate'' line he went over it. And everyone who knowns Alex Jones / Infowars knowns that's in an accomplishment.
American political society is the cause of something like this, don't get me wrong, now Ye is responsible for his own actions, but only last year the politically elite that apparently decides what contributes to racism had to adjust their definition of racism because it didn't account for black person being racist. (after Whoopie Goldberg i think last year said something that can only be read that way) The whole definition still is an joke but it is a bit adjusted now.
It has some span across the ocean with the race row we had here this week, with the ''lady in waiting'' it's the picture that we have different expectations of black people, and if like these days you can't have an sentence without saying equality 24 times you have to live up to that word. That's where it goes wrong. Ye is in a certain position where he doesn't need to listen to whoever anymore so he is now for some time creating his own demons, last nights interview was an great example of that. I hope someone is able to steer him to a better place before the law does. (because it's an matter of time now before he violates an law, but considering the enormous amount of followers fans etc. he still has that wouldn't end pretty either.)
