Yesterday, I started off work here with a smile. Today, that’s not the case. I just saw the official Twitter “Safety” account tweet out an endorsement of Zoe Quinn and Alex Lifschitz’s cash grab scam, Crash Override. This raises a lot of questions. How can Twitter be so fucking stupid? How much loot is the Queen of Raw Dog getting from this? Will this lead to a mass banning of GamerGate?
Honestly, I don’t know.
Here’s the relevant tweets:

“Trusted Resource?” Who the hell would trust the grifter and her trust fund fucktoy? I guess the SJW infection is at a critical stage there at Twitter (based in San Francisco, so not a shock). They haven’t made any moves against gamers yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it come. I know the rules like the back of my hand, so if they get me, it will be trumped up. But I encourage everyone else to be careful, and not give these clowns an excuse to ban you. Of course, if you don’t care, go wild. I just don’t feel like losing 19,000 followers.
Oh, and here’s the guy you’re making a “trusted” partner, Twitter:

And of course, the notorious Zoe Quinn:
There’s so much dirt on these two, that it would take another hour or so to write it all up. Just search them here on the site for more abhorrent behavior. Feel free to post follow-ups down in the comments as well. I’m about to go play The Witcher 3. The fucking shit froze on me at 7am this morning, so I’m still fiending for a good play session.
Twitter, we’re going to be keeping an eye on you. I’m not going to abandon the site, though. I know some are calling for that, but it’s not rational at this point. The userbase is too big on Twitter, and there is no true rival for their style of social media. We might have to abandon ship in the future, but not now. Don’t get carried away. Speak out often about the bullshit. Don’t retreat in the face of these fraudsters. Charge forward instead.
