Twitter; Jack Dorsey being even more awful 

Man y'all ever think about how incredibly stupid it is that the internet is almost entirely financed by advertising. Like, imagine if busses were only paid for using the revenue from bus ads.

@FerdiZ But ideas in multiple places in the world means more people finding them. Greater access > single source. Also, different people voice ideas in different ways, which reaches different people. I'm not sure what your complaint's about.
