Elon Musk: “The indoctrination of hate into kids in Gaza has to stop… indoctrination where kids are taught from as soon as they can understand language, their goal is to kill Israelis; if you’re told that from when you’re a toddler, you’re going to believe it,” pic.twitter.com/yvGQtHSvXE— Daniel Ben-David (@DannyBenDavid) January 22, 2024
JUST IN – CEO of X, Linda Yaccarino, says they “opened more lines of communication with groups dedicated to the safety of communities” and that “combating hate is a lifetime dedication.”https://t.co/InyILAWwwN pic.twitter.com/poQYMddPgl— Disclose.tv (@disclosetv) January 23, 2024
Yesterday, I asked Grok a number of questions related to my account, centered around posts that could be a problem. Even when it gave evasive answers, it still listed beneath half a dozen or more of my own posts that clearly related to my query. So I deleted them all.— ? Woe to those who dwell upon the earth ?

In 2024, I have been spending less and less time on X/Twitter.
It has been over a year now and it is clear that some of my favorite accounts are never going to be restored. The fight for free speech on the platform has been lost. The shadowbanning has never been worse even under Parag Agrawal. We are punished in the algorithm for posting links to our own websites. The platform is really nothing more than a gigantic time sink in a silo for most of us. It is Gab or Telegram with less engagement because your followers don’t see your posts.
There were a few exceptions to the rule like Keith Woods and Angelo Gage who were reaching new audiences in 2023, but it seems like one step forward, two steps back with Jews losing a news cycle only to win more censorship and shadowbanning concessions from X leadership. I don’t see it getting any better and it honestly hasn’t been worth my time since Musk took over.
Note: You can ask Grok how your account is being deboosted.
