In order for users to feel confident expressing themselves “freely and safely" ...

Unless your free speech contradicts the party line, am I right?

They think they live in a penis supremacist, PoCphobic, weighcist, straight supremacist, and trans-genociding society. That's why, the proud twats, of justice, need "safe spaces" where they can discuss "unpopular" opinions, without the fear of the imaginary "systems of oppression" oppressing them. This is how they justify this stupidity.

Even if it were, like Voat, it still wouldn't be cause for censorship

For it is never speaking truth to power to question twitter, for their cause is just and their knowledge absolute. They know they would be the utmost monsters if they were to acquire these powers and use them without perfect understanding, trust Twitter.

Their just cause gives them the moral and spiritual strength to see this truth, why can't you? For you must be made silent for your ignorance, kind for your weakness, and calm for your acceptance. The overwhelming power grab has always historically worked to benefit the majority, there are no limits beyond which twitter must not go to ensure safety and trust. This cannot end badly /s

If they are willing to backup such underhanded narratives of harassment, what makes you think those numbers are legit?

Just because something's popular, it doesn't mean it's worthwhile.

For example, I'm a Celebrity, get me out of here.

Okay, so here's what I think is going on. These sites, Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, etc. basically got millions of users and no real way to capitalize at the rate they needed to. Why? Well, I think these guys overspeculated their own worths, took on huge debts rationalized by the volume of users, and eventually hit the dead end. Their investors, debtors, shareholders (who all probably never should have been involved, as a much more safe approach was probably a better route) all want some returns... NOW. So what do you do? You scrub your image, and shove "______ MILLION USERS!!!!! ADVERTISE NOW!" in every marketing agent's inbox. The problem is that through hurried and desperate exploitation of their users, they alienate most, thereby undermining the very selling point they hope to capitalize upon.

Voat and other newer social media competitors have all been attacked by SJWs going after their Paypal accounts, making false claims to web server companies, DDOS attacks, hacks etc.

Fundamentally SJWs has risen the bar for any new social media competition against the established players.

This is why they bow to SJWs and in many cases fund and platform them.

To be honest Google, Facebook , twitter etc really do not have ground breaking technology that cannot be replicated. There were search engines before google. Facebook and twitter and reddit are nothing more then forums and blogs. They can be beaten at anytime by new competitors. In fact all of them exist on the corpses of fallen social media sites that existed before them.

They really don't understand their problem is a public image issue with people thinking the platform is awful because it has terrible people on it. You're going to have that anywhere on the internet. Yet when it happens on Twitter it's a huge deal. The more they parade around the fact they think they have this massive harassment problem, the more people think Twitter is a shit hole filled with trolls.

Most social networks are a shit hole filled with trolls. Most sites just sweep it under the rug and give them room to play by themselves. But Twitter feels compelled to make typical internet behavior a huge ordeal. Do you really think the amount of trolls and stuff on Twitter is different than most large social media sites?

No matter how hard they try and purge it, it'll just grow stronger. This is the type of stuff that encourages trolls to troll.

The sooner Twitter is gone the better. No one is going to miss that holier-than-thou garbage.
