Twitter’s New “Heart” Brings Feminist Tears, But No One Else Likes It Either

I woke up to a change in Twitter’s format. OK, it’s not really a radical departure. They simply replaced the “favorite” star and replaced it with a “like” heart. Since I almost always used favorites as a way to show approval, this doesn’t really bother...

#ItsOver? Twitter Declared Dead Over Allegations About New Shadowbanning Protocols

As you know, I write about Twitter a lot here on the site. There’s a good reason for that. As someone said in a (Twitter) group chat the other day, the service has been very good to me, with some exceptions. First off, many of...

GET TROLLED: Salon Says “White People” Trying to Ruin New Star Wars Movie

I saw some hilarious shit yesterday about the new Star Wars movie. I’m sure most of you witnessed this massive trolling campaign as well, but I’ll recap it, just in case you didn’t. The thing is, I thought I was too late to talk about...

COLD-HEARTED: Twitter Lays Off Staff in The Worst Ways Possible

Finally got back from the passport office yesterday. It went smoothly, other than the fat price that comes with it. I’m still in disbelief that it costs $150 or so total, but I had to have it. The bastards had me over the proverbial barrel....

#PissForEquality Shows Modern Feminism is Nothing but a Punchline

Someone showed me a new hashtag last night. It’s called #PissForEquality, and it’s just as crazy as you would imagine. To be clear, it was started on 4chan as a troll. But the mere fact that you have to do a double take tells you...

How to Get Rid of the Twitter Corporation: Hail Hydra!

GUEST EDITORIAL by Jack Outis   DISCLAIMER 1: What follows is a mixture of speculation and satire therefore the adverb “allegedly” prefaces and applies to the article itself. (go & eat your hearts out hypocrites) DISCLAIMER 2: I am a proud Neo-Troll & I DO...

REPORT: Twitter to Remove Interim From Jack Dorsey’s CEO Title

While I was sitting here waiting on my Twitter ban to expire, some news came across the wire about the service itself. As it turns out, they’re going to keep their co-founder Jack Dorseyon as CEO. He’s been focusing on turning around their somewhat-sinking ship,...

SEE YA, SICKO: Self-Admitted Sex Abuser Lena Dunham Leaves Twitter Like the Coward She Truly Is

Before I go play NBA 2K16 for a bit, I wanted to talk about the Lena Dunham issue I mentioned in the last article. News came out yesterday that she’s “left” social media. Well, that’s sorta true. Dunham claims to have someone tweeting out on...

On My New Twitter Temp Ban, LeoLoser & His Lies, & the LIVE Show Later Today

Good morning ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to another day of TheRalphRetort.com. Speaking of days, I would settle for a boring one right about now, but that’s not how I’ve ever rolled, as most of you readers know. I spent the overnight at the hospital...

On Nyberg, Twitter Bans, & The Fantastical Claim About Me Controlling Izzy Galvez

You know what’s funny? Some people don’t care to read and understand the rules of Twitter. I know it would be great if we could all just tag whoever we want with any old slam under the sun, but, that’s not the case. Back in...

Twitter Support is Full of It

Last night, right before I was due to go on stream with the incomparable Daddy Warpig, I was alerted to the fact that my Twitter account had been locked for 12 hours. At first, I thought it had been outright suspended, which got me going...

“Professional Feminist” Laurie Penny Gets Slaughtered on Twitter

I’ve been playing Metal Gear Solid V for the past few hours, but that didn’t stop me from monitoring Twitter (not much does). A little while ago, a couple friends of the site got into a scrum with professional feminist Laurie Penny. If you don’t...

The Daily Beast Goes #FullMcIntosh Over Ice-T’s Anti-Media Twitter Smackdown

I’ve been fucking around on Twitter for the past couple hours. During that time, a curious story from The Daily Beast appeared in my feed. I say curious, when I guess the better term is fraudulent. This thing is so outrageously headlined that I don’t...

Srhbutts Continues Witch-Hunt…& Gets Help From Twitter

The last time we talked about Sarah “Butts” Nyberg (@srhbutts), she was working for Leigh Alexander’s Offworld. Well, perhaps working. Who knows if that lush Leigh actually paid the degenerate. But, the fact remains: Ms. Alexander featured a self-proclaimed pedophile on her site without any...

TAILSPIN CONTINUES: Twitter Stock Value Falls 12%, Now Lower Than IPO Price

What’s up loyal readers? I’m back with a full slate of material for today. There’s no shit-eaters on deck, but we have a lot of ground to cover nonetheless. Let’s start off with some news fresh off the wire about Twitter. It looks like their...

Hashtag Stalking Ex-GamerGate’r KachoArinoDesu Is the Most Pathetic Man on Twitter

OK, let’s talk about that third-party troll shit I teased yesterday afternoon. The LIVE show got in my way, but that’s fine, because I had a great time doing it. Still, it’s time to get back to business: writing hits here on the site. Let’s...
