In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
The title of the post is Elon Musk’s new Twitter policy.
Your freedom to preach on a corner is not an entitlement to a crowd. Where this gets a little hazy is when a tweet is “max deboosted.” I don’t understand Twitter well enough to understand whether that means it will be suppressed. Retweets are a form of boosting. If real people are retweeting, all well and good. But if bots are pushing the retweets then “deboosting” makes sense.
Will this all be figured out with the new “blue check” system? Can bots be “blue checked” if someone is paying for them? Given the opaqueness of intelligence agency funding and their own technical expertise, can legends become Twitter users and push favored narratives?
