I don't have any actual evidence of this, but I suspect that Twitter has made the touchable part of the little three-dot menu containing "block user" smaller than it used to be.

The last few months, EVERY time I've gone to block a promoted tweet, it's loaded tweet instead.

"Every moment you come close, every moment you start thinking something isn’t right, you start feeling a little foolish.
Of course this is fine. Everyone is telling me so. The media, the public, the people around you. No one voices concerns. When you have them, you don’t say anything, because no one else is, and because you are a coward."

We tried to warn you.

"The facts have to be faced now. This is the brutal, grim reality of Brexit. The “alarmists” were right all along. The shortages and price spikes have arrived, with a vengeance, just as we predicted, right on cue. The next phase of this epic self-inflicted disaster will unfold just the same way. Things are going to get worse — probably much worse. The shortages aren’t temporary, they’re permanent."

Three is not a single ethically justifiable reason to have an account with any Facebook service.

Your eyeballs are the product they sell. The visits you make, the content you donate, directly financially benefits this shitty corporation and keeps them in operation. For every news item like this, imagine how much shit flies under the radar.

Delete your accounts. Yesterday.
