Tangenting in this episode:
They invented it specifically to censor people. Twitter doesn’t throttle all your Tweets, just the ones they don’t want others to see.
Whenever Tweeter’s bots pick up a supposed “offensive” tweet, they proceed to throttle it. Instead of outright banning the user or deleting the Tweet, which would attract a lot of negative attention to the site (Like what happened with Milo Yiannopoulos and Martin Shkreli), they allow you to think the Tweet has gone out to your followers as intended. However, any of your followers trying to access the Tweet receive a “This tweet is unavailable” notification, implying that the Tweet may have been deleted (It hasn’t).
Clicking on a link to the Tweet will take you to the Tweet (despite Twitter saying it doesn’t exist). However, the tweet will still not gain the attention you want, because most of your followers will believe the “this Tweet is unavailable” notification. Very few of them will visit the Tweet’s URL to confirm that it has indeed been deleted.

Dawn of the Dead was very obviously written as social commentary. To the point that it is over the top ridiculous. At one point early in the movie a white man
Then I finally get back around to the book I’m suppose to be talking about. The Internet Is Not The Answer by Andrew Keen.
We talk about Facebook, Fuckerburg and Andrew Keen’s bizarre notion that we live in a (I’m not making this up) “libertarian age”.
What the fucking fuck?
Why has the interwebz failed to deliver the promised wealth, equality and prosperity? Because every advantage of the interwebz is also a disadvantage of the interwebz.
