This week Meta/Zuckerberg have launched a social media app that is pretty much the same as Twitter. And it’s clearly no coincidence that he launched it the day after Twitter limited the number of tweets that people could view each day.
Paraphrasing what someone said on Threads today, “Now we have to decide which terrible nerdy billionaire that we hate the least?”
Look at those smug bastards! They’re trying to control our perception of the world and trying to shape that perception to their own personal ideals. Mark my words, it’s only a matter of time until one of them runs for President.
What I find alarming is that with this latest move, Zuckerberg is trying to consolidate all major social media under his Meta umbrella. He has Facebook, Instagram, and now Threads. If Threads truly pulls people away from Twitter, Zuckerberg and his minions will have significant control over a large portion of the worlds populations perception of things.
Also, he’ll be data mining the eff out of us and using that information for anything he and his company want. That’s a worst case scenario.
It’s also possible that this move by Zuckerberg may fracture and divide social media even further. Maybe it’s an opportunity for everyone to find their tribe in different places. That would be a best case scenario.
What do you think? Have you or will you join Threads?
Happy Friday! ~Phil
