Not that I care because I don't use social media at all, but clearly Twitter's management is opinionated and that has an impact.

    The goal for a company is to make money. To make money they need your attention.
    So they will feed you content that will make you stay.

    Of course you need to read all opinions from any side, I totally agree with you. Unfortunately it's a job that you have to do yourself because it's not in the interest of a company to do so.

        So basically "Threads" is like the Instagram comment section. 😅

          Anonymous, 05 Jul 2023The same way Twitter is an echo chamber for the rightTwitter really isn't. But they may happen once Threads launches. You'll have only Left of Centre on Threads and only Right of Centre on Twitter. No debates anymore, there will be no open dialogue and society will become evermore polarised.

          Which is undoubtedly bad for societal stability. You can't grow or develop as a person without having you ideas challenged from time to time.

            Anonymous, 05 Jul 2023The same way Twitter is an echo chamber for the rightIt will be a far-left cesspit. To those who think Twitter is now far-right, Twitter has plenty of far left still on it only to whine because those losers can't get anyone who doesn't agree with their narrative de-platformed off Twitter anymore.

                      Too many social media apps. No need.

                        When comes todata collecting whether you have threads or not it does not care.
                        The first moment you buy any kind of new phone and press powerbutton for 3 seconds the first thing that will pop up is to agree with terms of use. If you refuse your phone will not work.
                        if you accept your data will go they litterary have you. And you have no idea where they go, how they are used and what kind of data your phone shares with who.
                        Button phone or touch phone it does not matter your daa is collected the first moment you run your phone.

                          Anonymous, 04 Jul 2023An alternative to YouTube is feel free to enjoy Tik Tok whos everyone trying to ban.
                          Just because its robs google from money.

                            [deleted post]It's just obvious and if you can't see that, you are truly lost. Or maybe you're lying because you like the serfs being censored by billionaires. Facebook/Meta have had 15 years to make a Twitter alternative, but they didn't. Elon buys Twitter and doesn't play ball with the mainstream media, journalists and celebrities and in less than a year Meta has tried to create a rival to Twitter.

                            All the woke celebs and media outlets will set up accounts on Threads and encourage their followers to leave Twitter so they can go back to having a nice safe echo chamber where only the "correct" mainstream Leftist opinions are allowed

                              no, thanks

                              Let us not forget that the Zucc is the worst of all evils in the social media world.

                              Musk sure has brought issues to Twitter in terms of performance, but content wise, it has never been better than before.

                                we do not need another social media app.

                                i hope it fails, elon buying twitter was already enough.

                                  It's using the Mastodon network, so it should seamlessly integrate with people that already migrated to Mastodon. Seems like a good move

                                    I'll bet like 98% of people who comments here going to use this whatever Meta Twitter alternative app even though they said they hated it or god knows whatever reason they came up in this comment section 🙄

                                      That's the sad reality. We're letting them being richer and doing whatever we want, while we, as "the product", follow whatever steps those big companies are taking.

                                        People complaining about how this app is gonna be a great data collector, while they don't know Twitter also collects their data.
