@noelle Not lifting the ban on adult content, interesting.

@noelle

🤔

I'll give you $3.50, and a six-pack of fresh clones.

@noelle wow it's almost like not listening to users about how they use the site, not addressing longstanding harm being done to them, and deciding dodgy algorithms can do all your thinking for you, means that a social media platform drastically loses value or something

well done, yahoo!

@noelle conclusion: furry tits are worth $1,097 million dollars

@noelle "but mr. tumblr mod there was no mention of enby-presenting fox nipples"

@noelle damm "enby-presenting fox nipple haver" is too long to be a valid username

@noelle That was an unforced error on Verizon's part. Instead of defying FOSTA/SESTA and challenging it in court while using their boy in the FCC (Ajit Pai) to run regulatory interference, Verizon caved and threw sex workers under the bus.

@noelle putting the billions into millions to compare with the other millions is such a helpful thing for contextualizing the sheer difference between the two
It's so surprising how rare that sort of thing is though

@noelle Given both the value and the intention here, I'm going to assume it safe to call Tumblr dead at this point.

@noelle imagine buying one of the world's larger social networks and losing 99.99% of the value in six years

Holy shit I probably have shoes that depreciated more gracefully

@noelle can't wait to buy Tumblr for 20 bucks in two years

@noelle woah! maybe they'll actually do something decent with it?
@noelle

Hehehehehhe. Weren't we all saying this shit was gonna just basically die with no pronz on there? I mean, what's left besides nazi's and bullshit on that platform?
