Welp, hope you guys weren't too attached to twitter or anything, because it just done took a shit all over itself. µBlock Origin can't block its elements either because they're all randomized now with the slowest fucking java code ever.

Think it isn't slow? Take a look at my fun with trying to just TYPE.

I hope the platform dies in a fire now. It's the same in firefox or safari and all ads and field elements are 100% randomized, meaning you cannot block them. My timeline is now so full of ads it's fucking pitiful. And it isn't in chronological order anymore either, so that got fucked too.

Never been to twitter, what's it about & what are they trying to accomplish with the latest changes?

Does Twitter even kind of work anymore?

I've never really found much point to it, but now and then someone posts something on it, and I click the link, click the button that says proceed to legacy Twitter because JavaScript is disabled (it doesn't matter if JavaScript is enabled -- it still doesn't work), then Twitter responds with 403 Forbidden, then I change my useragent string to Internet Explorer on Windows ME, click the back button, click the proceed button again, and get a postage stamp sized static picture where the video might otherwise be, then give up and go work on my backyard retaining wall, or drink, or work on my rambling manifesto, or drink and work on my rambling manifesto...but whatever I end up doing it doesn't involve %*#@ing Twitter.

Reddit is also dead to me. I click a link to a Reddit thread and there are three replies with a completely nonfunctional "view full discussion" or something button. Clicking this does nothing but generate JavaScript errors in the console.

So, would anyone like to hear my thoughts on Google's AI driven search results...anyone? Hey guys, where'd everyone go...?

I gave up on using twitter on my computer, maybe 15 years ago? The UI took a dive and I really hated it. Now I only log in on a computer to get a link I sent to myself.

I love it when reddit switches me to the new reddit 'cuz they think I'll love it and I should try it. Why would they think I would love it when the first thing I do is switch to old.reddit.com?

I'm so much of a reddit lurker that I don't even have an account. The few places I'd like to contribute to would probably ban me for not taking part of their groupthink.

e.g. giving powerline networking a fair shake (I mean, it's not GigE, but it can reliably communicate at & sustain 100-150Mb)
