Analog people

Speaking of professional critics vs reality….

The Harris Poll shows about 2/3 of Americans approve Elon’s takeover of Twitter.

Sharp comments by the CEO of Harris:

It’s a reminder that the views of Twitter’s blue-checkmarked class, professional pundits, and journalists often diverge from the views of most Americans. Perhaps they should spend less time interacting with each other on Twitter and more time greeting analog people – or maybe Ice T was right when he tweeted “it would [be] kinda dope if Musk bought Twitter and just shut it off.”

ANALOG PEOPLE! The Harris Poll just won my undying support.

Later, here’s a genuinely informative piece about Twitter, only partly about Elon.

Information = something surprising, something you didn’t know before.

I didn’t know that Twitter was essentially the tenure system for professional writers. They don’t make money on Twitter; they use it to compete with other writers, climb the status stack and impress the peer reviewers.
