Confidential to Nikos C., Republic of Greece

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Tue May 01, 2018 11:45 am

I did like your tweet regarding the Brodie Bruce thing on Twitter. And I was going to respond. However, I can. not. figure. out. how to stop Twitter from @-replying to the people in a conversation. And I didn't want to bug Kevin Smith any more than I did. Even when I delete the other person in a reply, Twitter goes HERPY DERPY and puts it back.

He probably gets hundreds of tweets an hour and while it is true that my motives were in hoping for a retweet, which I would use to spring my gofunder, Kickstarter, wefunder, IndieGoGo, Patreon, RocketHub, Bandcamp, Itch.io account, CrowdRise and SendMeCash.xxx, I did enjoy your contribution.

I also can't believe that tweet about the Chinese dress took off. How on earth does Twitter not intervene to stop thousands of morons from yelling at a high school girl? (No offense to high school guys, but they all deserve to be yelled at over Twitter at all hours. They know what they did.)

Thanks. I don't know how twitter works, really. And I don't actually care, I just press "reply" and that's the end of it for me. If twitter wants to send that to some random person out there, blame it on twitter, not me :P

(Never heard of the Chinese dress thing.)

Philip DeFranco reported how a white girl who just turned 18 wore a Chinese dress to prom, and started an international incident over what she thought was just a pretty dress.

Correction:

Never heard of the Chinese dress thing, and I am not interested in finding anything out about it, because it sounds dumb and inconsequential to anything that ever mattered.

This generally applies to me regarding all "current events".

Was the dress BLACK AND BLUE or was it WHITE AND GOLD?

Well, if you'd bothered to look at the teaser image, you can she is wearing a red and white dress.

Nikos, you are correct in everything you said. You seem to have "understood" Twitter without actually partaking in it.

Yes, I notice Pinback does that a lot, doesn't he?

Smelling SJW BS a kilometer away isn't too difficult. "Girl wears Chinese dress and gets accused of cultural appropriation". Do you actually need to read it to figure out it's SJW BS with exactly 0% useful content?

According to the shitstorm that followed, yes, that is exactly what transpired.

Ah well.
