@fribbledom Jack did it.
@fribbledom Can they make a rule against glorifying stupidity?
when your decisions work against you.
@fribbledom nice :)
@fribbledom Better late than never
@fribbledom With other words, the account owner gives no shit about our rules but we do not want to risk a dispute with him.
@cybercow @fribbledom They ARE risking a dispute. There's a good debate to be had over the value of keeping the "receipts" of bad behavior by public officials available for public inspection and verification. It's honestly a tough problem to solve.
A CW like that is a good step, and it's risky to stand up to powerful people even a little bit. I think it's important to applaud progress and not let (justified!) cynicism stop us from seeing positive change. In part because if there's never a "good job" in a PR sense, then there's no reward to offset the risk of doing the right thing
@fribbledom right on! They should just automatically put all posts by Agent Orange behind a general content warning like "this user is an asshat" though. It would reduce the moderation burden.
@fribbledom Yeah, IMO if any platform started censoring (deleting) public officials tweets - that would be a very slippery slope and a precedent we don't wish to establish. So what Twitter has done is acceptable from my POV.
@fribbledom I hope this will make Mastodon an alternativ for the president 😀
