#1 trending on twitter is. #RIPTwitter.
musk fired half the staff then gave an ultimatum to the rest to quit w/ 3 month severance or work your ass off indefinitely from back in the office which he also mandated. one post i just read said 75% of the remaining employees are taking the offer. possibly those on work visas cant quit. hence the dire hashtag. everyone acting like the titanic is sinking as they say their goodbyes. feels like its too big to fail but man what a clusterfuck musk unleashed. epic hubris.
i am half hoping that musks twitter implodes via mass exodus but then i think i would deprive myself of eye-rolling stories like this and the snark that accompanies it.

this shit is all over the place because of the times op ed piece yesterday. who knew when i was lounging on canal street drinking beers at dusk in the closed off street last summer that i was in the heart of twenty something douchey rich kid anti-woke hipsterdom. if only they reviled the skateboarders half as much as i did we could have found common cause over a pilsner, as long as they were buying. i mean, i listened to my neighbor drone on about soil for the garden im sure he still hasnt started for a free beer, im sure id be delighted to hear how stultifying life is among the "avant guards" in bed stuy. is that where they are now? i draw the line at converting to catholicism. im soaking in it right now up here. there is nothing transgressive or transcendent about transubstantiation.
