The reason #Twitter won't ban Trump is because he's the only thing keeping the site relevant at this point. They're losing users hand-over-fist and they're desperately grasping at toxic relevance. We all know it.

If they ever decide to go ahead and ban him, it'll be a PR move and nothing more.

It is said that the lonely eagle flies to the mountain peaks while the lowly
ant crawls the ground, but cannot the soul of the ant soar as high as the eagle?

You're funny.
Je bent grappig.
Vous êtes rigolo.
Sie sind lustig.

I see a lot of UFOs, because I don't trust myself to reliably identify things that are flying far away.

I did it. Quit Facebook. I had many personal reasons, but philosophically, what moved me was Aral Balkan’s critique based on cyborg ontology and theory of surveillance capitalism.

This article sums up the argument well: ar.al/notes/encouraging-indivi ~ @aral

Where my grandmother worked, they had problems with snacks and other food items disappearing, figuring they were being eaten by the night cleaning crew, right out of people's desks and the fridge.

She decided to bake some ex-lax brownies and have everyone put them in their desk. The brownies were gone the next day when they came in.

They never had a problem with any food disappearing ever again.

Even though I’m only a quarter of the way through this book I really want to finish, I checked out a biography of the author to read too. Then I checked out another book, just because I could. I may have a problem.
