WOW. Trump has his Twitter account back. WOW.
Not WOW because Trump has his account back. Not WOW because he was inciting violence.
WOW..because this morning on the CNN app, it is the first story at the top of the feed. Really? Seriously? With all the atrocities around the world that we aren’t even reporting on?
And more WOW, because Elon and his every decision regarding Twitter has been one of the top news stories every day since he took over. Really? Seriously? With all the atrocities around the world that we aren’t even reporting on?
Humans, we do need not Twitter for our existence. We need air and water and food and shelter and bonding with fellow humans in the flesh and peace for survival.
We do not just vote in elections. We vote every time we spend money. We vote with every placewe put our precious attention on with the precious time we have.
WOW because why are we still on Twitter, if we do not agree with Elon’s decisions? How many times have we stopped flying a certain airline, stopped eating in a certain restaurant, stopped anything because we didn’t like the way we were treated or the product any longer? It is the same thing.
We all have a choice. Either delete or be OK with the changes at Twitter. End of story.
WOW because why it is so hard for the majority of us to hit delete? To me, this is the biggest WOW of all. So instead of trying to figure out Elon, how about if we all try to figure out why Twitter is so important to us? And when we figure out the answer to that, then we really will have a good reason to say, WOW.
