MEDIAWATCH: Beyond the screams of the woke, why Musk buying Twitter is really, really, really bad

If the woke all quit Twitter because Musk has bought it, how will they tell us that we are all racist, transphobic, misogynists 24/7?

To our faces?

Come on!

Twitter is the land of the woke, it has given them more power to cancel than any other platform, now with a heteronormative cis male Tech Bro owning it, the woke will be forced to choose between their deplatforming dogma and leave or swallow a dead rat and stay.

Why don’t all the woke who are claiming to have left Twitter start their own social media platform?

Wokitter would be a great chance to virtue signal to other people who only agree with everything you say.

Problem solved!

However, beyond the schadenfreude of watching the woke scream about losing their Lynch mob cancellation power, there is a fundamental danger in Musk owning Twitter.

In 2010, the 388 richest individuals owned more wealth than half of the entire human population on Earth

By 2015, this number was reduced to only 62 individuals

In 2018, it was 42

In 2019, it was down to only 26 individuals who own more wealth than 3.8 billion people.

And in 2021, 20 people owned more than 50% of the entire planet.

This week the richest man on Earth bought one of the most important social media platforms.

The Big Tech Tzars have manipulated our collective fear, ego, anger and insecurities through social media in a way that has led to the largest psychological civil war ever launched against one another.

Meanwhile, the planet burns and every aspect of our existence is monetarised for big data to sell us more stuff we can’t afford. We are alienated and anesthetized by a consumer culture that keeps us neurotic and disconnected. Our work, our existence, every move we make are all built to suck money to a minority class that sits above us while under neoliberalism, globalization, financialization, and automation, our existence as individuals has only become more disposable.
