Nobody wants to do business with unstable nazis people

Plenty of businesses ready and willing to do business with stable (and rich) Nazis, dictators and slavers. Look at the line of people and businesses more than ready to make deals with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, China, etc

If you are rich and have a stable government, there’s no amount of human rights violations and genocides stopping corrupt fuckers from trying to make deals with you and profit.

Long past that point… If your not on mastodon I don’t really care what you have to say. Bluesky is just another capitalist platform used to motize working class people’s content.

I’ve oddly seen lemmy posts on mastodon lately and it kinda secured to me this is the real “web 3.0”

If you’re on social media I don’t really care what you have to say, if it was anything important it would be in traditional medias.

Twitter has a pretty solid metal (music) community that I’ve come to know and appreciate over time. We share new bands, our opinions on albums, all that good stuff.

Not everything has to be related to politics. People aren’t “suspicious” because they don’t share all your views.

This is problem with platform lock in. Be it discord, X, FB groups, Reddit. Communities form and then fragment as the members who realize there are better open options leave.

The users of the web have enough desktop and laptop cpu cycles to spare for passing a few decentralized messages around without killing battery life or performance. We don’t need these experience degrading/dehumanizing ad platforms to underpin our internet. That’s just a narrative peddled by companies who aim to make obscene profit on top of their already obscene profits.

Why? I have an account because I follow about a dozen people I’d like to see the updates for. I don’t post or search around. Some journalist and sports people. Just because someone you don’t like owns it doesn’t mean anyone who uses it is a piece of shit or whatever. It’s still functionally the same for a lot of functions. Do I use it as much as I used to? No. But I haven’t seen anything worse there than I did at Reddit or here.

When you describe someone else’s grievance as “someone you don’t like” or “says something you think is bad”, you’re adding an implication that the actual reason is irrelevant. It makes it look like you don’t understand the reason at best, or are deliberately minimizing it at worst.

“If there’s a Nazi at the table and ten other people sitting there talking to him, you got a table with eleven Nazis.”

You made a coherent argument as to why you use a service, specific to yourself. You get downvoted for doing so. Never change, lemmy.

…Or, perhaps, do change. Y’all can still sniff your own farts if y’all pull y’all’s heads slightly out of your asses.

I remember when I was a kid, at some point in early highschool we had a colleague who was a bit dumb and had blond hair (in a country were that’s pretty rare) so he was commonly bullied and called “piss head” and I did join on the bullying once or twice.

Still to this day I sometimes think of it and feel guilty of, even as a kid myself, having been an asshole to that kid simply to feel I was part of the group.

Sometimes I have the impression that even here in Lemmy a lot of supposedly adults either were always assholes and will always be so, or didn’t go through that part of maturing were you figure out that pilling up on somebody just to be “one of the crowd” isn’t exactly a mature adult thing to do.

Or maybe I’m just overeading it or projecting.

I’m sure you’re not a piece of shit, but by still having a Twitter account equals to supporting the platform and its owner (a proven piece of shit). Even if you’re not giving it any traffic by being logged in or following users (which you’re doing), you’d be giving it your support.

By unfollowing your sports people and quitting the shithole altogether you’re sending a clear message that the platform is dying (it’s already dead for many) and it’s high time for people to find alternatives.

And nothing of value was lost. I can’t imagine ever wanting to read a tweet from somebody’s console game.

The point was to be able to send clips from your games directly to social media.

Right, that seems obvious. That’s what I was talking about being of no value. Nobody needs to watch anyone’s console game clips on Twitter.

I get we hate Twitter and rightfully so, but you really don’t see the value for a direct pipeline from consoles to a major social media platform?

People watching other people play video games (streaming, esports, etc) is a multi-billion dollar industry lol

My brother lives far away from me. Sometimes he uploads game play directly from his PS5 onto YouTube and I get a notification. Don’t necessarily watch it for the content but it’s nice to see his clips pop 9n my feed.

Some ppl used the Twitter integration to export screenshots from their Nintendo Switch since it didn’t require USB or MTP
