    Elon forgot to pay King Charles III rent this month. Should Charles III lock the door and kick out Twitter? Hong Kong never dared miss a payment.

    Twitter started shadow banning Substack this weekend. Fuck Twitter and fuck Musk and his shitty cars.

    The Craziest Friday Ever
    On staying at Substack, and leaving Twitter, I guess
    Matt Taibbi
    42 min ago

    Earlier this afternoon, I learned Substack links were being blocked on Twitter. Since being able to share my articles is a primary reason I use Twitter, I was alarmed and asked what was going on.

    It turns out Twitter is upset about the new Substack Notes feature, which they see as a hostile rival. When I asked how I was supposed to market my work, I was given the option of posting my articles on Twitter instead of Substack.

    Not much suspense there; I’m staying at Substack. You’ve all been great to me, as has the management of this company. Beginning early next week I’ll be using the new Substack Notes feature (to which you’ll all have access) instead of Twitter, a decision that apparently will come with a price as far as any future Twitter Files reports are concerned. It was absolutely worth it and I’ll always be grateful to those who gave me the chance to work on that story, but man is this a crazy planet.

    Have a great weekend, everyone. I’m off on vacation with my kids next week, but I’ll check in. Best and take care, Matt

    I have previously defended some of the actions taken at Twitter after Elon Musk took over.

    But if they've just taken to shadow banning a different group of users then I cannot defend that.

    I am not a Twitter user, and now I'm not even a fan.

    They’re not shadow banned, they’re banned banned.

    And I'm sorry I don't know who Matt Taboullii is, but if there's an argument that it's promoting a competing platform, then I really don't see an issue with them suppressing that. That's a headline in Duh Magazine.

    Is he? I went to https://twitter.com/mtaibbi and I didn't see any notification that the user had been banned from the platform.

    admittedly I don't know how twitter works, but that account looks same as any other I might access.

    They aren't banning Taibbi. They are shadow banning substack links and content

    Matt taibbi popped up a few times in my podcast list, he was on real time with bill Maher, Sunday special with Ben Shapiro, and beyond reasonable doubt with mark gerragos and Adam Carolla. Seem like one of the legit journalists left. And of course the Twitter files stuff. I’ll be interested to see this upcoming week if those podcasts address this. I’m surprised musk took this move as I thought he was chill guy

    My hope is musk fixes things. And your assessment of Taibbi is correct. He's got more journalism in one guy than the nyt shitbox had at their whole paper

    Happy to see Taibbi getting love, been following him since his RS days. I don't always agree with him but he's a top-notch journalist.
