So remember when Elon pretended that a twitter account posting his plane flights was fixing his location and used a bullshit incident to support it?

Turns out that his employees were consulting the account to find out when he was coming to the office.

Twitter Staff Watched Musk's Jet-Tracking Account

Now him being big mad makes a lot more sense.

Ah yes Six Degrees of the great replacement.
Step one, AI uses too many white people. Step two, google uses hidden tokens to patch their missing brown people problem, Step Three, AI commits white Genocide!

I must admit, AI committing genocide because white tech workers were so adverse or confused with taking photos of black people they would rather patch the system in a manner that causes global mass murder, does track.

Whelp it appears that the horrible man known as Stonestoss got doxxed and is now crying out to Musk for help to, I don't know exactly, take revenge on those that doxxed him?

If you guessed he was a generic white guy in his mid thirties who lives in Texas with a germanic name, who thinks free speech is the ability to anonymously spread hate and that being linked to his words would be considered intimidation, you would have been correct.

ThePlea@Stone_toss
One of you has a direct line to @elonmusk - and you need to use it. I'm too obstinate to be intimidated out of anything, but I realize my
temperament is something that less than 1% of people have. If Elon's idea of a "free speech" website is one where people can be intimidated into silence, the outcome will be a site where the Stasi will drive out all dissent. This transition to a monoculture is already
underway.
I will stay to the end, of course, but I am an outlier, not the mean. If he needs a shortlist of the worst offenders, that can be easily
provided.

I think that if Twitter consistently banned anyone for doxxing, that might be a good policy, but banning lots of people for using this guy's name, while ignoring all the doxxing he and people like him do, is ... less good.

Daddy Musk has come to the rescue of Mr Graebener, banning Xtwitter accounts that use his name, turning this into a story about censorship on the internet resulting in ArsTechnica and Wired both publishing his full name and his connection to nazi works. Good job Musk!

If you've ever thought Stonestoss sounds like a Nazi, you will be happy to know your Nazi detection skills work well as Mr. Graebener was outed as the author of nazi comic 'red Panels.' Also here is Musk going out of his way to help an actual not figurative, nazi.

ArsTechnicaLast Friday, X responded to the motion to dismiss, claiming that the lawsuit—which Musk has described as "thermonuclear"—was appropriately filed in Texas because MMFA "intentionally" targeted readers and at least two X advertisers located in Texas, Oracle and AT&T. According to X, because MMFA "identified Oracle, a Texas-based corporation, by name in its coverage," MMFA "cannot claim surprise at being held to answer for its conduct in Texas." X also claimed that Texas has jurisdiction because Musk resides in Texas and "makes numerous critical business decisions about X while in Texas."

Hmm, yes that link. How did... Anyway, the blue tick is now useless.

Jokes on anyone that paid for a blue tick! Elon has started forcing blue ticks on people with high verified followers. I'm not sure what a verified follower is, but it sounds like if enough blue ticks gather together, they will create a new blue tick.

TheGuardianThe entrepreneur and one-time “Chief Twit” had tweeted last week that the service would grant free “premium” status to any user with more than 2,500 “verified subscriber follows” and accounts with more than 5,000 would get “premium+”. That policy is now being enacted.

“Shit. I’ve been forcibly bluechecked,” posted Marcy Wheeler, a journalist. The Wired writer Lauren Goode said: “My blue check is back and I just want to make clear I am not paying El*n M*sk for this thanks very much.”

Nicolae Ceaușescu was dumb as dog shit, yet referred to himself - apparently without a hint of irony - as The Genius of the Carpathians.

Don't know why I thought of that just now.

As anti-government protesters demonstrated in Timișoara in December 1989, Nicolae Ceaușescu perceived the demonstrations as a political threat and ordered military forces to open fire on 17 December, causing many deaths and injuries. The revelation that Ceaușescu was responsible resulted in a massive spread of rioting and civil unrest across the country. The demonstrations, which reached Bucharest, became known as the Romanian Revolution—the only violent overthrow of a communist government in the course of the Revolutions of 1989. Ceaușescu and his wife Elena fled the capital in a helicopter, but they were captured by the military after the armed forces defected. After being tried and convicted of economic sabotage and genocide, both were sentenced to death, and they were immediately executed by firing squad on 25 December.
