"Ask HN: How would you turn Twitter around?" Use Mastodon
@Gargron I bet we're all reading this in terms of "how would you make Twitter not a hell website that's awful to be on" but all the HN people are thinking of it in terms of "how do you make Twitter profitable"
@brunodias Twitter as a commercial company definitely needs to think of how to be profitable
Twitter as a public utility needs to be neither commercial nor centralized
@Gargron it sucks though. I agree there is a lot of waste of money but we also got bootstrap from that $2B spent every year. Probably wouldn't be possible if they were pinching pennies.
