Open-source algorithm, promise to defeat the bots (if they do this, they will solve a much bigger problem - that of spam, DDoS attacks and all sorts of botnet campaigns threatening cybersecurity) - I'm very positive about this takeover. I'm actively moderating my Twitter content anyway.

It’s not only that. I think there is some additional reason for concern when an important communication and news dissemination platform is taken over by a single person with a history of breaking rules and a strong disdain for government (well, except for when they subsidize his companies).

I suppose we’re not supposed to be mocking people for being dumb, but thinking about maybe starting to do a little due diligence on a merger agreement that was signed a couple of weeks ago is not exactly a sign of brilliance. I’m almost tempted to buy some TWTR stock just to hedge the mental pain if the rat delivers on his 4.20 deal (plus 50).

Apologies for the lack of humility in quoting myself.

Is there a website where we can apply to be banned from Russia?

To access that site you have to go through Captcha. As I've complained already, why can't they utilize captcha better? E.g. "To prove you are human, click on [Russian atrocities, Evil Disney characters, Expert horsemen, the stages of syphilis,...]."
