And that's the issue with Twitter: They're making progress, but are still not listening to what their users really want. Twitter even admits to not wanting to actually change the toxic dynamics of their platform. They want to "proactively address these disruptive behaviors that do not violate our policies" without, y'know, actually changing their policies, because then they might have to actually ban their most popular user for threatening an actual nuclear holocaust. It doesn't feel like caring, but simple economics: Twitter has only just started making a profit again, and a lot of that's based on increasing their active user base. So they don't want to get rid of the trolls. They want to keep the trolls. And they to keep want us. So they'll give trolls their separate space. Except that already existed. It's called Gab, and it's the dumpster fire they truly deserve.
Cedric is on Twitter, because it hurts so good.
