Everyone should ditch these platforms! Twitter, Fakebook! Fuck them, stop acting like wounded animals because they “ don’t like you”, you will never be free until you stop capitulating and engaging with these fuckers! You are feeding the beast! Stop.

It wasn't easy, but

accomplished. I joined FB in 2012 solely because of my daughter's. They lived out of state and seemed like a good idea at the time. Then it went crazy on me as my high school friends, acquaintances, teachers, etc came across me. I was v.p. of my class and received friend requests from people either I didn't know or forgot. Even referring to my YB, looking at their pic I was still clueless, but it was initially fun. Then 2015 and Trump came along. Lost 3/4 of friends ( blue state, blue city folk and I posted my confederate flag on my barn, game over.

Joined Twitter because of Trump. Liked the guy from way back in my SB ownership of a concrete foundation Co. My dream was winning a bid on any project of his, but if you're familiar with the concrete industry, especially 35 years ago, we'll let's just say it's regulated and a line you better watch if cross.

Now I'm off both after reinstating my account within 30 days. July I had enough and made it past the deadline. No joke, your stress level drops. Good riddance!

After being thrown in FB prison numerous times, losing friends, division, and way too much of my time, because it’s addictive! I cut all ties to ALL social media, sold 50k in Facebook stock, and found out your real friends and family will find a way to keep in touch! Everyone else is baggage and some are jealous baggage.

Excellent Read. Fir those that have left FB or are contemplating, remember to completely DELETE your account, not just disable or take a break, they need to see a kiss my ass mass exodus! That’s the only way to dismantle that machine.

Even when you delete, they make you wait 30 days for it to be effective.

I generally shook my head in disbelief when certain acquaintances posted silly material purchases. It was the virtual Jones vs the Jones. Although I was somewhat impressed when that kid that everyone said would never amount to anything posted pics of him build a vacation home on the lake. You mean auto shop class wasn't a waste? Some guidance counselors should perhaps resign

Social Media is a prime example of how NOT all new technology makes peoples lives better, and it is a driving force of separation and angst among people today. Yeah, it was cool 10 to 15 years ago,but the novelty has worn off and people are waking up!!

Yeah me too! I joined to keep in touch with cousins and extended family members.. long time friends from high school.. I wasn’t hPpy withe disrespectful political politics of Zuckerberg… and the lack of freedom of speech.. someday I might return hahaha

I deactivated my account the Saturday after the Presidential election, when non-political FB (liars) started pushing a message into your feed that Joe Biden won the election. FB was acting as a biased news platform and that was enough for me to pull the plug. Along with the censoring on Twitter and what happened on Parler. I disconnected from FB, Twitter, Nextdoor and IG. Recently, I let go of Netflix. I won’t give these companies my patronage. I’ve since tried Locals and Substack.

I only use FB for canine groups and a hidden small Covid vaccine group. In 2015 like you I was turned off by FB. All of my NYC friends posted anti Trump, anti Republicans rhetoric all day. What ever happened to posting pics of their grandchildren or dogs? Whatever happened to posting pictures of parties in NYC and the Hamptons? I haven't posted on my profile since 2015 and I don't miss it.

They never were your true friends if they would drop you bc of who you voted for. As far as the Confederate flag, it is a symbol of our history as many things are. Good or bad, one should know all our history, not just what is picked by a certain group of people. They should choose you as a friend based on your character and morals. No President can be all things to everyone and they are always loved and hated at the same time. But to ruin a friendship over it is poppycock...

My experience is somewhat similar. The revelation of who were REALLY friends and those whose due to their fraility relinquish individualism for the collective herd of sheep. I've always rejected mob-mentality. Needles to say, i found other ways to be in touch with those who matter to me.

I think the biggest problem we have is that the elected officials think Twitter is the only way for them to communicate. We need to start letting them know there are other forums and they must abide.

I never joined Facebook, coming relatively late to the Internet (I was waiting to see if it was a fad and waiting for them perfect computers--also I was afraid it would take valuable time away from television). I was suspicious of facebook's invasion of privacy, and I have no use for Twitter--I find it awkward to even use text messages. Maybe if I set it up from my computer, but I have a landline, not VoIP. I guess there might be a way to connect text messaging on my computer to my mobile phone through Wi-Fi at home I don't know. I'm just looking to get a printer/copier/scanner/fax to replace a 12-year-old Panasonic film fax machine. I do have a YouTube channel which I use to mostly upload recordings of singers from television and elsewhere. I did join Instagram recently just so I can view of the photos and videos of singers I follow, but I don't post anything on it.

I was recently trying to figure another method of communication to circumvent the established forms. There are still some of the older means of communication. Telegram is gone, but there is still telephone, television and tell a woman.

My husband and I just returned from Italy. We spoke to many Germans there.

Several of them solicited information from us. They wanted to talk about our “loudmouth ex president.”

When we said he was good for America they look shocked that we would support him.

When you said Joe Biden is corrupt they looked even more stunned.

They were raving about Joe Biden and Barack Obama.

We told them they’re not hearing the truth from the mainstream media. Then we spoke about Australia and they didn’t have a clue what was going on.

Ya, goes back to the days at the end of the war as they asked the German town’s people about the concentration camps in their back yard: “What concentration camps. We thought those where manufacturing facilities.” It’s called denial.

Alex, I am grateful for your reporting. But it's time you put Twitter in the rear view mirror and developed your presence on other more principled social media platforms. Twitter is only as powerful as people make it and it's on its way to becoming only a platform for left wing loons. They won't be persuaded by your truthful reporting. As long as you pursue Twitter you give it undeserved credibility. Someone with your strong reporting can operate on and strengthen other platforms and ultimately reach and bring the truth to more people who will appreciate it. Metaphorically, you are lucky Twitter dumped you. Now you can build a relationship with someone who is much better for you and your readers.

Can someone explain logically to me why my healthy unvaccinated kids who get exposed to sick vaccinated kids at school need to quarantine for 7 plus days but the other Vaxxed kids who were exposed can continue to spread ?It is absolutely insane to me what is happening with this b.s.

Expand full comment

Because it is all to harass unvaccinated people. The people in power are trying to make an unvaccinated person’s life a living hell so they will give in and get the needle. It has nothing to do with health and safety at this point. The ultimate goal is to get the “vaccine” into ALL people. One can only imagine why. But shhhh- I’m going into “conspiracy theory” territory and might end up in trouble.

Expand full comment

This just happened to my daughter. It's devastating (she had to miss all the homecoming festivities) and makes no sense. Isn't it common knowledge by this point that even if you're vaccinated you can still get and transmit Covid? How is that different from unvaccinated?

I’m sorry to hear this:(

My daughter being sent home from a boarding school for having lunch near a vaccinated positive case. She tested negative ( she also tests 3x per week) And has no symptoms and is already in a single room. The vaccinated roommate of the positive is allowed to stay and go to classes as are all the other vaccinated exposed people . My daughter will miss all

Under Obama, the Democrats did a complex bait & switch to con America into thinking Al Qaeda were the moderates and the US should team up with them to fight the Islamic State. Now, they are trying the same con with the Taliban to fight "ISIS-K which is nearly a complete fiction.

Clearly the plan is revolution, with a near total inversion of culture, values, ethics and even truth for lies. And it's working better than any of us would have believed it could a few years ago.

I was banned a long time ago. If you say or share too much information to the wrong people with a large following they will eventually can you. I would share or retweet to Alyssa Milano, Jack, CNN, FBI, etc. I shared a tweet to Alyssa Milano where someone was saying something about Trumps lawyer being booted, and asked is this censorship. She was saying people were making it up. I was removed for a week for that, it was harassment or threatening. I did that sort of thing all the time. I berated Fauci, shared ANTIFA stuff from Andy Ngo to CNN, MSNBC BLM.... Last time, I said and shared an Andy Ngo video of BLM in a Target harassing people using a Bullhorn, "someone should trip him and kick him in the nuts." I was totally removed for that. Seriously, people say the most horrible stuff and are not removed. It was who I shared it too that mattered.

Facebook Twitter and the others -- even substack -- are digital mobs, subject to mob psychology. Weak and ignorant people are especially susceptible to mob influence, and they flock to the largest mobs to better protect their insecurities. Weakness is the national pandemic.

youtube, twitter, facebook, google, apple etc are all tools of the intel agencies and establishment that runs the US and the UN (the deep state).

frankly life is easier without them. Except facebook, you don't need an account to read or watch the content, so never make an account. If you really need an account, there are alternatives out there like rumble and Gab.
