No, you don't get to count twaetaeh towards your 'hatred of everything' score. This time your hate was placed on something that really is quite useless. It's a big thing like Starbucks for the hip people and those who are 'in'.

So what, they pay 5€ per cup of coffee and use communication technology that allows 160? (iirc) character messages. Good luck with that.

You have to try harder if you want to score actual valid points. Try hating Vangelis or puppies, that ought to work.

Hot women you say?

And I thought Twitter was just for Stephen Fry to throw a moody on when he got dissed, or for Rooney to post pics of his hair transplant...

Twitter Stock Falls Amid Rumblings of Conservative Boycott

Twitter's stock fell more than 4% on Thursday amid chatter of a conservative boycott of the microblogging site, apparently led by Fox News.

Annie Gaus

What's up with Twitter's (TWTR - Get Report) mysterious plunge on Thursday?

The social media stock ended off 4.3% on Thursday, after earlier losing nearly 9%, despite no official news or analysis that would spur a sell-off.

Timothy Collins, an analyst with Jim Cramer's Action Alerts Plus portfolio, speculated that the drop may be tied to an apparent boycott of Twitter by Fox News. While the media company still maintains a Twitter account, it hasn't tweeted since Nov. 8. Reports have suggested that the network is unhappy with Twitter because it failed to promptly removed tweets of anchor Tucker Carlson's home address curing a protest outside his home.

"While Fox may stay away for a while, I don't expect anything major to take hold. We've already been through the 'delete Facebook (FB - Get Report) ' movement and I'm sure we'll see other similar actions in the future," Collins wrote. "Unfortunately, these types of issues will always exist on social media."

Social media stocks have had a rough ride in recent months, with FB plunging 37% since late July and Snap (SNAP - Get Report) teetering around all-time lows at $6.48 per share. Twitter, meanwhile, has tumbled more than 35% since its July earnings report showed a drop in monthly active users, and it's possible that the specter of a boycott by conservatives on Twitter would amplify existing concerns about declining users. Over the past several months, Twitter has sought to purge inauthentic accounts and tamp down harassment and abuse on the platform.

Conservatives, including President Trump, have complained of the microblogging platform allegedly "shadow-banning" prominent conservatives through such methods as reducing their visibility in search results. Twitter has dismissed such theories.

Trump himself has shown no signs of abandoning the Twitter platform, using it Thurday to again attack Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation of possible collusion between Trump and Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Twitter last saw a percentage decline greater than Thursday's on Nov. 19, when it fell 5%.

Year to date, Twitter's stock is up 33%.

"This is certainly a bump in the road for Twitter, but not the end," Collins added.


The more people stop using the platform, the more likely Twitter is to notice it.

I have had a Twitter account since Oct 2012.

In looking over my Twitter profile, I:

Sent out a Tweet 17 Nov 2012, 2 Mar 2013, 15, Nov 2013, and retweeted someone else's Tweet 7 Jan 2015, 28, Nov 2017 and 26 Nov 2018.
So 6 Tweets in a little over 6 years.

I have 4 followers (2 that I know and the other two I have no clue who they are).

I do use it to follow some people, some of whom post You Tube videos (and I could do without following them on Twitter since I also get their YT notifications).
I follow 34 people in total.

I think the only person that I follow on Twitter, and would miss if I left Twitter, would be actor James Woods.
He does not do YT or any other platform that I am aware of.

Woods is always good for an interesting post.

During the recent Campfire fires in California he did a TON of good.
There were many that followed him that were seeking assistance, looking for loved ones, etc and he used his Twitter as a way of matching people up and for giving out information.
There were a number of people that had horses that were seeking assistance in getting them out of the fire zone and Woods helped match them up with people that had horse trailers, stables to board them at and so forth.
It seemed like he was on 24/7 during the worst of the fire sending out tweets and offering up information.

Woods has about 1.88 million followers and he has demonstrated that he can use his platform for good.

I would miss James Woods' and his Tweets if I left.
