There aren’t any conceivable threats to Twitter on the horizon, outside of its own self-destruction. People have tried, though. Ello flopped horrifically, App.net (the “pay upfront” Twitter-like) only wound up being used by the type of objectionable personalities who would actually pay for shit like that, and what was Peach again? I forgot. Don’t even think about Facebook, either — Facebook is fucked. Now that everyone is finished using it to reconnect and have sex with their old high school crushes, it’s finding a new equilibrium as a place where Racist Uncles and engagement photos go to never be seen again.
Amid all the scrutiny and legal action, TrumpInitiative.com is now defunct. But instead of any sort of traditional message — something along the lines of “Thanks for your support / We’ll be back” etc. — they have instead decided to take down the member login form and replace it with… a picture of the login form. When I tried to click on the form and realized it was a jpeg I felt like Wile E. Coyote running full-speed into a painting of a tunnel.
You are correct, person on Facebook: there is truly no sympathy from you. No bad things will ever happen to you. You will never experience pain and suffering. Your life will always be as it is: idyllic. Continue to sprawl out on your puffy white cloud eating cotton candy and grapes from the vine as you look down on the rest of us. Rest assured, you are in excellent company!
