  • “Influencer.” But I thought social media couldn’t influence anything or anyone , like who to vote for, as an example?

    Can we just stop giving Kanye and Trump any attention. They're shitty people. Before social media, these fucks would have faded in to oblivion.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Not really if you lived outside NY. Sure, mostly attention for his marital issues and ego, but it was very limited to tabloids and an occasional entertainment show. It's out of control now and beyond ridiculous.

  • For all ye Ye fans who got tatted:

    Regret your Kanye West tattoo? This studio will remove it for free.

    The tattoo-removal parlor’s slogan is ‘Yeezy come, Yeezy go’ — after West was embroiled in several controversies


    LONDON — Do you have a Kanye West tattoo you now regret? A tattoo-removal studio in Britain is removing body art inspired by the rapper — and it won’t even charge you for it.

    “We’ll remove your Kanye tattoos for free,” London-based Naama Studios announced on Instagram last month as Ye, the rapper and music mogul formerly known as Kanye West, was condemned over a string of antisemitic statements made publicly in recent months.

    In a play on the rapper’s name, the tattoo parlor even came up with a slogan for its service: “Yeezy come, Yeezy go.”

    In one tweet, which has since been deleted, Ye said he would go “death con 3” on “JEWISH PEOPLE,” an apparent reference to Defcon, the U.S. military defense readiness system. He also propounded false claims about George Floyd’s killing at the hands of Minneapolis police.

    “We understand that tattoos can be triggering for some people and not everyone can afford to remove their tattoos,” the company told The Washington Post in an email Thursday. It noted that one of the people who took them up on the offer said she was being trolled for her Ye-inspired tattoo.

    The store said several people have contacted it in recent weeks to have their Ye tattoos lasered off — a procedure that can cost up to 2,000 pounds (about $2,400).

    “When you have a tattoo inspired by someone you admire and they start making headlines for all the wrong reasons, it’s not exactly something you want to wear on your sleeve,” Naama said.

    Ye has been one of the central figures in American entertainment culture, and hundreds of posts can be found on Instagram under the hashtag #Kanyetattoo. There are lyrics, album artwork, quotes and portraits of the rapper etched into various body parts of fans from Britain to the United States.

    As a result of his public rants and hate speech, Ye was swiftly dropped by several brands with which he had lucrative deals and was locked out of both his Twitter and Instagram accounts for violating user rules. Ex-wife Kim Kardashian, whom Ye repeatedly harassed on social media amid their high-profile divorce, has also — at least in public — distanced herself from the father of her four children.

    “It seems there are a few former fans with tattoo regret,” the company said. Three clients have already started their Ye-tattoo removal journey, and 10 other people have booked consultations, it said.

    The removal process can take several months. It uses advanced technology to apply intense pulses of light to the ink, which then breaks down into particles that are removed by the immune system, the company explained.

    EU warns Musk to beef up Twitter controls ahead of new rules
    By KELVIN CHAN
    30 Nov 2022

    LONDON (AP) — A top European Union official warned Elon Musk on Wednesday that Twitter needs to beef up measures to protect users from hate speech, misinformation and other harmful content to avoid violating new rules that threaten tech giants with big fines or even a ban in the 27-nation bloc.

    Thierry Breton, the EU's commissioner for digital policy, told the billionaire Tesla CEO that the social media platform will have to significantly increase efforts to comply with the new rules, known as the Digital Services Act, set to take effect next year.

    The two held a video call to discuss Twitter's preparedness for the law, which will require tech companies to better police their platforms for material that, for instance, promotes terrorism, child sexual abuse, hate speech and commercial scams.

    It’s part of a new digital rulebook that has made Europe the global leader in the push to rein in the power of social media companies, potentially setting up a clash with Musk’s vision for a more unfettered Twitter. U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen also said Wednesday that an investigation into Musk's $44 billion purchase was not off the table.

    Breton said he was pleased to hear that Musk considers the EU rules “a sensible approach to implement on a worldwide basis.”

    “But let’s also be clear that there is still huge work ahead,” Musk said, according to a readout of the call released by Breton’s office. “Twitter will have to implement transparent user policies, significantly reinforce content moderation and protect freedom of speech, tackle disinformation with resolve, and limit targeted advertising.”

    After Musk, a self-described “free speech absolutist,” bought Twitter a month ago, groups that monitor the platform for racist, antisemitic and other toxic speech, such the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, say it’s been on the rise on the world’s de facto digital public square.

    Musk has signaled an interest in rolling back many of Twitter’s previous rules meant to combat misinformation, most recently by abandoning enforcement of its COVID-19 misinformation policy. He already reinstated some high-profile accounts that had violated Twitter’s content rules and had promised a “general amnesty” restoring most suspended accounts starting this week.

    Twitter didn’t respond to an email request for comment. In a separate blog post Wednesday, the company said “human safety” is its top priority and that its trust and safety team “continues its diligent work to keep the platform safe from hateful conduct, abusive behavior, and any violation of Twitter’s rules."

    Musk, however, has laid off half the company’s 7,500-person workforce, along with an untold number of contractors responsible for content moderation. Many others have resigned, including the company’s head of trust and safety.

    In the call Wednesday, Musk agreed to let the EU's executive Commission carry out a “stress test" at Twitter’s headquarters early next year to help the platform comply with the new rules ahead of schedule, the readout said.

    That will also help the company prepare for an “extensive independent audit" as required by the new law, which is aimed at protecting internet users from illegal content and reducing the spread of harmful but legal material.

    Violations could result in huge fines of up to 6% of a company’s annual global revenue or even a ban on operating in the European Union's single market.

    Along with European regulators, Musk risks running afoul of Apple and Google, which power most of the world’s smartphones. Both have stringent policies against misinformation, hate speech and other misconduct, previously enforced to boot apps like the social media platform Parler from their devices. Apps must also meet certain data security, privacy and performance standards.

    Musk tweeted without providing evidence this week that Apple “threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why.” Apple hasn’t commented but Musk backtracked on his claim Wednesday, saying he met with Apple CEO Tim Cook who “was clear that Apple never considered” removing Twitter.

    Meanwhile, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen walked back her statements about whether Musk’s purchase of Twitter warrants government review.

    “I misspoke,” she said at The New York Times’ DealBook Summit on Wednesday, referring to a CBS interview this month where she said there was “no basis” to review the Twitter purchase.

    The Treasury secretary oversees the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, an interagency committee that investigates the national security risks from foreign investments in American firms.

    “If there are such risks, it would be appropriate for the Treasury to have a look,” Yellen told The New York Times.

    She declined to confirm whether CFIUS is currently investigating Musk’s Twitter purchase.

    Billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is, through his investment company, Twitter’s biggest shareholder after Musk.

    I remember when platforms were deplatforming people and everyone was arguing that a company is not the government and doesn't need to recognize your right to free speech, and now people want the government to reign in the private company to reign in the free speech.  Here's an idea, just say no to all social media. It's garbage if they run it the way you want and it is garbage if they aren't running it the way you want. with the exception of our esteemed message board of course.
    Agreed no need for me to be on any social media platforms except this one here!

    Can we just stop giving Kanye and Trump any attention. They're shitty people. Before social media, these fucks would have faded in to oblivion.

     

    Are you kidding??? What the heck would y’all talk about not having the orange man to talk about.  Everything on here always reverts back to that guy.  Y’all would lose my Interest if the obsession stopped, it’s excellent entertainment…and I don’t even like the guy.  
    Sure you don’t! What happened you didn’t come by after midterm election night to celebrate your winnings?

    So Elon basically confirms the FBI was not involved with twitter in suppressing the laptop story. And the only stuff the Biden campaign asked and got censored were naked pictures of his son (which obviously were posted without his consent). Yet another nothingburger from the right. womp womp

    Sure magarepubs, go ahead and spend two years investigating the hell out of that. That'll help you in 2024. lol

    voter fraud and election rigging the likes of which have never been seen in this country, or anywhere in the world?

    because it can't be that the republican message was not connecting with voters.

    Sure, they didn’t jump ship on the Orangeman and  get on the Desantis train….  I feel if that guy runs and gets the Republican nomination he wins in impressive fashion. he is young, handsome, beautiful family, sharp, and a veteran.  
    I think It would be wise for The shit-4-brain President handlers to advise him to get off the MAGA Republican’s comments…the majority of conservative leaning people aren’t them.

    The majority of republicans want Trump to run again. And Desantis is smug, passive aggressive, manipulative, and full on legislates via culture war, so he’s perfect for republicans
