Why yes, I did get suspended on Twitter. How did you know?
I don't know if I have ever seen a more blatant First Amendment violation, but these retards are perfectly fine with handing this power to the government even when Donald Trump - who is Literally Hitler - is in power.
TITLE 14.5. False Information Strategic Plans
(a) Any person who operates a social media Internet Web site with physical presence in California shall develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Internet Web site.
(b) The strategic plan shall include, but is not limited to, all of the following:
(1) A plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories.
(2) The utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories.
(3) Providing outreach to social media users regarding news stories containing false information.
(4) Placing a warning on a news story containing false information.
(c) As used in this section, "social media” means an electronic service or account, or electronic content, including, but not limited to, videos, still photographs, blogs, video blogs, podcasts, instant and text messages, email, online services or accounts, or Internet Web site profiles or locations.
Update: Twitter has now locked all my alternate accounts and won't even let me read tweets any more, though the message clearly says I can read tweets.
Update 2: I'm back, and I've saved a copy of all my tweets. Not that anyone would ever want them, but anyway...
My plan, which was written by me, and is mine, is as follows:
1. I will ignore this blatant attack on the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. 2. Pay me if you want me to use fact checkers. 3. Pay me if you want me to provide "outreach". 4. I will ignore this blatant attack on the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

The Numberphile YouTube channel posted a video on "derangements". It got marked as unsuitable for advertising. They requested a manual review. Immediately came back confirmed unsuitable for advertising. All it's about is a type of mathematical permutation.

The answer seems to be, they don't like Twitter.
Specific problems include the length limits, the poor conversation threading, the problems with blocking, the shadow bans, and the fact that the entire site is full of idiots.

(Yeah, I violated Rule One.)

When they added a count next to the replies, that made shadowbanning that much more obvious. And you can tell who has attracted too much attention from Twitter's bansturbators by how all their comments show up under the "click for more" link (Which is telling when it turns up as the first thing under a tweet).

I'm working on tweaks so that you can follow different people for different things, so that you can follow X for articles and Y for photos, but ignore their likes and shares. I'm not doing a smart algorithm, though.

If you have a software solution for that one, you've got my vote for Emperor of Earth.

When some other dildo-that-breathes jumped in on the top of the conversation a day later, I turned the SJW's own weapons against him. He said he didn't want American Troops to die in Syria, so I said he was cool with thousands of Syrians dying at the hands of their own Government because they were Brown and not American. I just didn't give a shit, and didn't want to have to argue the case all over that it is REALLY worthwhile to NOT let the Soviets gain a warm water port in the Mediterranean after they puppetize Assad. (The first socialist didn't see any issue with that. And yet, he somehow thought he had a lock on Geopolitics....)

The feature I would probably like most from Facebook would be a way to ignore memes/reposts/shares.
I don't want to see all the recipe videos you post. I want to see your personal updates.

Well, the API supports that, haven't done the UI yet. The API even lets you say "show me when this guy posts a new video, but nothing else."
The API also supports saying "show me my timeline but only original content" regardless of what settings you have for your friends. And you can search within your timeline, though that might die if the site takes off because that requires a trick that is difficult to scale.
