Lots of of staff say no to being a part of Elon Musk’s ‘extraordinarily hardcore’ Twitter The Verge. However:


I view this dogpile as two PMC ethical panics potentiating one another, each with the target of taking Twitter down: Blue Checks, as a result of the sudden incapability to drive a platform’s censorship of their political opponents offends their sensibilities (to not point out their allies within the intelligence neighborhood and the Democrat Get together), and Twitter staff themselves, who implement the censorship, and, to be honest, are labor aristocrats who most likely suppose they’ll get catered lunches and massages elsewhere in Silicon Valley (however perhaps not), and in addition want to show themselves important. (If they’d a union, they’d strike, however they don’t, so we’ve got the ethical panics.) At the next stage, what we’re seeing is an train in PMC class energy.
