Don't talk to me about wastage. The French add letters to their words that they have no intention of pronouncing.

Just discovered that the "Copy Link To Tweet" option on Twitter has not disappeared. It's now moved to the sharing options at the bottom right of the tweet.
Apparently, the current government isn't the only fan of completely unnecessary changes.

friends in Bangalore, we are talking about what’s up in Hong Kong today in the Bangalore International Center.

we will talk HK history, the constitutional and legal framework, the brave protests that have recently escalated, the incentives at play for PRC and Beijing to pay heed and how similar the play book has become, for both authoritarian and democratic regimes these days.

One of the most disappointing thing you'll ever hear is "damn I thought you were a cheerful person" when you stop pretending everything is alright and be honest to your truth.

The same people who act all privileged in first class train compartments also dirty them so much.
It's disgusting.

If you use the word Fear at the same time you use the word 'LOVE' and 'GOD' you really don't understand who YOU are and who God is.

Khusrau darya prem ka, ulti wa ki dhaar,
Jo utra so doob gaya, jo dooba so paar.

Oh Khusrau, the river of love
Runs in strange directions.
One who jumps into it drowns,
And one who drowns, gets across.

The exodus from Twitter is not because of Trolls. Those were easily handled. The problem was that Twitter was being paid by the Govt to turn a blind eye to the radicalisation of the Majority community.

The exodus is not in fear but in disgust.

Some extremely well meaning people, give attention to obviously dumb posts on twitter. In my experience much of the toxicity I've seen on twitter has not come from trolls, it has come from people I follow, quote tweeting in order to call our on toxic shit. Excuse me but, if it weren't for you, many of us would have never had to see that shit, ffs
