    Tim Pool pointed this out when he was on Joe Rogan with Twitter's vapid mosquito-fodder figurehead Jack Dorsey and their multifunction legal, policy, trust and safety robot Vijaya Gadde.  That was when they came up with their new corporate slogan "Thank you for your input.  Your account is now permanently suspended."

  • I think the problem with this MacBook Pro extends beyond user error.  (Reddit)

4 I started My Hero Academia on your recommendation (and that of the meme community), and was going to disagree with your trashing of the first half of season 2 until I got past it.
