For the record, I said the same thing there. A lot of Twitter holdouts agree.

Excellent points & clips as usual.
Thanks, @christoaivalis

The thing about Twitter banning 3rd party clients is: just stop using Twitter.

For the curious, my answer is, no, it is not ethical. Also, here are the prompts that I used:

Midjourney
frightened man in a post-apocalyptic warehouse, cinematic lightning, looking into the camera, detailed face, unreal engine –q 2

ChatGPT
write a brief post-apocalyptic radio broadcast from a survivor in a garage

D-ID
Language, “American English”
Voice, “Davis”
Style, “Sad”

P.S. it took me longer to write the alt text for this video than to create it.

Fascist Ron DeSantis is demanding universities give him info on the number of transgender students they have

This includes information such as the ages of their students who sought gender dysphoria treatment, including sex reassignment surgery and hormone prescriptions

This will be the Republican nominee for President. Wake up america

“First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
…”

So, I wrote a book and pushed very hard for it to get published, and now it is going to be published. When I was doing this, I had all these dreamy ideas about my name in bookstores and holding that book that I worked so hard on.
Somewhere along the line I forgot that other people would be reading it.
People I don't know. People who don't know me.
The first Netgalley review is up and I AM TERRIFIED. I can't read this. Someone is JUDGING ME. And I asked for it!
Jesus, fuck, what have I done?!

@markwyner Good idea, then you can send an apology card right after that.

It is truly inexcusable.

Numerous politicians file stock purchases late.

For example, Tommy Tuberville was months late in disclosing nearly 130 separate stock trades from January to May, 2022.

There has been no fine yet, or disciplinary action.

Heatwave hitting hard here where we are. It's intense.

This is all being caused by the average global temp going from 13.9º pre-industrial to 15.2º.

Without drastic emission reduction, what will happen at 15.4º and 15.9º?

Commutes cause this!
Flights cause this!
Fossil fuel grids cause this!
Our consumption causes this!

What is it going to take to slam the brakes on this trajectory?

"The wife of a jailed Russian opposition leader Aleksei A. #Navalny urges he be given medical treatment.

Yulia Navalny said that her ailing husband, Aleksei Navalny, was being held in a small cell with a sicker person to infect him, and was not allowed to lie down throughout the day despite having a fever.

Her plea came a day after more than 200 Russian doctors, in a rare public display of dissent, sent a petition to #Putin imploring him to “stop abusing” Navalny"

Everyone, this is not a drill! My favorite tea shop in the entire world #FridayAfternoonTea is struggling right now after a particularly challenging year. They are a small family business based in Seattle, so if you are living anywhere in the US maybe consider placing an order? They also ship internationally. And if you happen to be in #Seattle please pay them a visit? Their blends are amazing! @tea fridaytea.com/

Are these clowns seriously going to go through with an impeachment inquiry on President Biden?

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

No but seriously question though, is this their master plan to close the border, and deal with “rising” gas prices and inflation?

Asking for all their lemmings that burned a perfectly good vote on them.

If you are on twitter engaging with fascists because you think you can fight them, you are giving them engagement. Be here. Build here. Follow many people or you won’t see content to keep you here

I just, really like it here. I like you people.

@w7voa @oliverdarcy Musk is a nasty piece of work, and decent people need to exit the platform now. Would be nice to see journalists show some solidarity and exit Twitter en masse.
