Uhhhh.

So

On the same day Amazon announced that they legally can't prevent you from resolving a dispute in court, Twitter updated their TOS, and y'all need to read it. Here's a couple of "interesting" bits.
1) Twitter is now openly admitting they reserve the right to but do not guarantee they will remove TOS violations.
2) Twitter claims a right to adapt any artwork or content you may post for advertising purposes with no compensation to you.(see: buzzfeed taking your tweets)
3) copywritten content crackdown. Probably will affect parody/RP communities heavily.
4) Your account must be "commercially viable", meaning Twitter can suspend you if your tweets just annoy the wrong people.
5) Services are "As is". Good luck in court.
Due to high demand, when I get home to a proper keyboard, I will do up a better summary of this.
A way around this for artists is to only post their artwork on their website, and provide links. Twitter cannot alter content on your website without violating your intellectual property rights.
⚠️ This information is a simple breakdown of freely available information and you are free to and SHOULD screen shot this and pass it around should friends or mutuals who may be impacted but are also blocked need to be aware
Here's the full version, as requested.

I broke it down as gently as possible, in it's entirety. Some aspects of this are already in effect.

I hate this guy. I'm proud of being over ten years sober by Narcotics anonymous standards, even if other substances are much smaller in sobriety timescale. It is HUGE to be down to "only drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana" and I WANT TO CONGRATULATE DEMI FOR THIS ACHIEVEMENT.
This guy is apparently a girl named Lala Kent who once "thought she made her daughter sick by having a single vegan meal."

(My bad on missing the fact that Lady is a Lady.)

This chick reads like the most cliche vapid model stereotype ever and that bish better get Demi's name out of her mouth.

Anyway. That was a nice trip down the path of understanding. I am now fully aware that Twitter only puts up with me because they think I'm somehow marketable.
"Trans person bigots can target", "Activist who annoys people to create more engagement", "excessive oversharing is great for advertisers". You know, I actually kind of like being able to quantify some of those reasons.
Can't forget "Random shit posts or information dumps that people find interesting for reasons that the algorithm doesn't understand but the algorithm still somehow knows what to do with"

Me @ the villain for Guardian Harmony: Swan Song (3)
"The Steam Clock Killer" steams his victims to death and ditches them by the steam clock.

They are responsible for killing Frank Gillard's wife.

It gets REALLY dark.
Those of you excited about Guardian Harmony 2 being released next month will be delighted to hear that Swan Song is about 50% done.
