I was shadowbanned. I did an experiment where I pretended to be a Trump supporting Zionist, no ban and free reign. I then became a conservative constitutionalist questioing offical stories, I was shadowbanned, later deleted my account. Then I was a real liberal who questioned offical narratives shadow banned again.

It's a garbage site, many losers there arguing all day.

I would rather be out of loop than be a follower of propaganda and misleading news.

Always fascinated me that that’s the thing that always gets reported in the news, Twitter.

Who is going on twitter for news?

I'll continue to use this site following Neil Young, any Fleetwood Mac news and talking to Willie Nelson-if he's the real one.

I don't understand. It is like Tumblr, 4 Chan youtube and other social media. Ignore the majority and the white noise and only go for the rare gems.

I used to LOVE following Thomas Wictor on twitter. He had the most interesting threads of anyone.

Of course, he was banned.

It is a propaganda tool from the day it born.

I received a ban after tweeting: "It's OK to be white."

Got out of that toxic wastehole.

Can't spell Twitter without Twit. :3

Or turn it against them and use IFTTT to constantly rewteet everything of value.

What's IFTTT?

[–]SierraKiloBravo 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

https://ifttt.com/ I use this for a few things, it's real handy.

If this then that...

ifttt.com

It allows one to automate all kinds of things.

Use RSS if you still want to follow people without accounts, works pretty much on everything. I believe Aaron Swartz helped create it. Youtube, podcasts, reddit feeds, news feeds, twitter. Sucks to find one you like and set it up but it's amazing after the work is done. Same your rss file and switch to another program, just import it and test them out. I recommend using feedbro for firefox bc you can search for feeds in webpages. It's not the best privacy secure way but it's a good way to get your feed started then export to something on linux after you switch from bill gates homocide os.

Not long into 2017 I deleted my accounts on Twitter or Facebook. Should have done it after Snowden leaked what he could.

Doesn't matter they are still tracking you even with it deactivated

[–]PikonParadox[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

It's not about being tracked. It's about reducing their traffic by not using their services. One or two of us cant make an impactful change but it sure is a START of it. Yesterday me, today you, tomorrow the rest of the world. Be the change you want to see in the world.

Well I never even used twatter in the first place so that is a start. Guess I should boycott/stop using youtube as well eh? what a shame where else would I get my sweet asmr vids?

It may be difficult to find much content in other websites but if we want to switch, we have to stay determined about it. If we never try, and if we stick to YT just because it is more convenient, we end up supporting YT rather than finding an alternative. This is my philosophy. I reduced using YT and i use it only when i cannot find desired content elsewhere.

ah ok did you find any alternatives to yt? to help me out.

[–]PikonParadox[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

At the moment, the best I got is " d.tube " which is apparently a decentralized alternative for youtube. I'm still learning more about it and trying to find whatever down sides it has.

Edit: archive.org seems like an interesting option too. Im yet to find out more about it.
