what is it with right-wingers and not paying their bills?  do they feel so entitled as to not be subject to the terms of contracts they signed?

Word is someone isnít paying his Google cloud bill and therefore the site is getting throttled

Awful coincidental this happened on the first day of Q3 when AWS (this is hosted on aws not google, yeah) would start throttling for non-payment.

Incredible genius brain move for a company who makes money of selling advertisements to limit the amount of stuff their users can see.

100% guaranteed to go absolutely nowhere:

Facebook owner Meta set to launch Twitter rival on Thursday

tidbit from the article: "Meanwhile, Twitter has said that the popular user dashboard, TweetDeck will go behind a paywall in 30 days time."

Threads better shape up quickly as Twitter is going to even more of a hellscape now that they are sharing ad revenue with that absolute worst blue check "content creators"

block and move on folks...

I'll do racism on Twitter for $25,000.

Kosmo, are you on BlueSky? I have an invite if you're interested.  Not as much happening there as the user base is smaller, but it's definitely free of the right wing goons you see on twitter or the endless barrage of brand engagement as Threads.
