I replied back with a tweet storm, for you should consider very carefully what it implies…
I just wanted to point out the irony here with that last tweet. Seriously? Do you see the irony? I am using Twitter complaining that Twitter is censoring people like myself because my political views do not line up with their own political views… at the same time calling for it to be destroyed? No, Twitter needs to drop all propaganda, censorship, etc. that it has going on and allow individuals to self police their own walls with blocking hashtags, people, keywords, and messages that contain things they personally don’t want to see. Make the tools very simple for end users to use, but only allow the end user to control them. Do this, and its possible your stock will be fixed, Twitter.
Fun fact, the Silicon Valley company I worked for straight out of college paid me $62,000/year despite the fact that I proved my value by out performing senior level engineers (who are paid over $100,000/year) while an intern working for 2 years prior (through a college co-op program) before being hired full time to receive benefits.
No lie, when I interviewed with one of the other massive Silicon Valley companies and asked about the cost of rent versus the “mandate” that I have roommates, the HR manager said to me “it is common for teams to be roommates to help lower the cost of living.” I replied back with: “You’re going to force me to have roommates to work for you?” No thanks Apple.
No joke, they pay their kitchen staff horribly. Just ask them. It’s sick how poorly they pay them. They are exploiting them.
It is important to point out that some may claim that its not #GoogleManifesto’s fault… the cost of living in Silicon Valley is expensive because of high demand. Well… actually, in my opinion it is your fault, #GoogleManifesto. You’re the one who is profiting billions a year… perhaps you could pay your employees living wages in Silicon Valley? No? Yeah… I get it, you need private jets and second vacation homes. I understand.
Disclaimer: I do not live in CA or work in Silicon Valley. I know many people who do and have second hand knowledge of the truths behind life in the Bay Area…
I am their whistle-blower. Those big evil companies like Google and Facebook would fire them for ever having such a rational thought in their head about equal human justice under the law and under society. #LittleLivesMatterToo #SaveOurChildren #SaveOurFuture
