Adios, Twitter

While I’m not formally suspended from Twitter, I won’t be going back there again since I can’t access the account without giving them a phone number. I don’t sign up for any social media service that requires a phone number, I never gave them a phone number in the first place, and I’m not about to give them one now.

Since that means I can’t even see what tweet supposedly violated their rules or delete it, I won’t be logging in there anymore. It’s very clear that Twitter is an SJW-amenable authority and it’s simply not worth it to try to play with their stacked deck. If you want to find me on social media, find me on Gab, where I’ve already got 12,139 followers, including many #DreadIlk and #VFM. At the rate they’ve been growing, I expect I’ll have more than the 27,500 I had on Twitter before April.

I prefer Gab anyhow. The engagement is more substantive, there are fewer SJW performance artists, and it’s run by a fearless Alt-Tech leader who doesn’t give a damn about safe spaces or the propagandists in the mainstream media. As Mike Cernovich never tires of pointing out, we don’t need them. They need us.
