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...

VICTIM BUX STUNT: Wu “Leaves” Twitter Over SPJ AirPlay

We talked about attention whores early this morning. I said that Zoe Quinn was the biggest one I’d ever seen. Although that wouldn’t be literal. I think Big Randi Harper would take the size crown. But metaphorically speaking, I said that Zoe was tops. I...

SWERVE: Suey Park Slams Outrage Culture. Has She Turned Like Ian Miles Cheong? (UPDATE)

Some days, my Twitter addiction is rewarded. Not only do we have the worthless @_icze4r sperging out left and right, proving everything I’ve ever said about the loser was dead on the money. Something even more amazing has happened over the last couple days. Suey Park,...

Twitter Hits: The Donald Trolls Gawker & GitHub Loses It’s Fucking Mind

What the fuck is up, people? No LIVE show today, but we will be back tomorrow night, as always. I’m gonna use the backup account, and will have some promo up later. But first, let’s hit up a couple stories from Twitter. The first one...

TWITTER IN TURMOIL: Internal Struggles Threaten Company’s Future

As you might know, we’ve dedicated a lot of space to Twitter here on the site. Not only is it a source of infinite lulz, but I feel like the medium is one of the most important tools available to campaigns like GamerGate, and to...

TWITTER TAILSPIN: User Growth Stagnation Causes Wall Street Selloff

Twitter was hit with a massive selloff on Wall Street after a disastrous earnings call where the company admitted that they were in a turnaround. Although actual earnings were a tad higher than expected, the CFO’s words on user growth sent investors headed for the...

Caitlyn Jenner Now SJW’s Muhammad? Troy Baker Quits Twitter After Activists Freak Over Joke

Someone on Twitter just said that it seems like Caitlyn Jenner has become the SJW’s Muhammad. What they meant by that was, making a joke about Jenner is now grounds for immediate sanction and ostracization from the “tolerant” radical activists. If you know me and...

DOUBLE STANDARD DAY 2: Twitter Seemingly Implements New Policy, Allows Zoey Tur to Dox

Yesterday, I brought you a story about Zoey Tur. If you’ll recall, she threatened put Ben Shapiro in the hospital and commiserated with Twitter users about someday being able to curb stomp the guy. I told you that if I had done such a thing, I’d...

What the Hell is Going on in Canada? Twitter Dissent Could Land Man In Prison

I’ve been meaning to comment on this story all week long. So in keeping with the theme for today, let’s hit it. Just what story am I talking about, you ask? Well, there’s a case going on right now up north in Canada, and it...

The Modern Colosseum: An Open Letter to Twitter From the Brilliant Janet Bloomfield

In case you didn’t know, Janet Bloomfield is fucking awesome. I got to talk to her a little bit on Twitter back at the beginning of GamerGate, and she’s written for the site, been featured here in news stories, etc. She has her own site...

TWITTER HIT: Wu Gets Featured in Playboy

Now, I’m not sure if this is just the online Playboy, or if it carries over into print, but Brianna Wu has been featured as one of the women “whipping the industry into shape.” Don’t worry, she’s fully clothed. But the decision by the editors...
