Backwards compatibility is the killer app for breaking the social media monopolies.

The best way to do this is let me follow twit from a free alt, without having to be on twit. People will migrate to where the best "takes" are as long as they can feel like aren't missing anything important at the incumbents.

@admin "In capex heavy years the company needs to dip into their horde of certificates of deposit to fund capital expenditures. This means the extra cash should be viewed more as a reserve instead of excess capital. In most other years capex is paid out of operating cash flow, and the left over cash flow goes to pay dividends."

@admin Friends took a look at it a 8 yrs ago. Not sure if the hoard of CD's is still there, but it can't be yielding all that great these days. oddballstocks.com/2012/06/slee

@admin I'm not gonna cry foul you didn't share CVR here first (ok, maybe I am πŸ˜‰ ), but hopefully you shared it with the tanker subs first.

@gregasmaximus @admin YES! Another RCV fan ;) Americans today don't actually vote. They meta-vote based on single issues which just make the parties more polarized. The moderates say they have no choice but to play because "third parties always split the vote." If we had RCV, there would be no risk of voting for who you ACTUALLY like first while ensuring that if herding persists, your 2nd choice gets your support.

Hot take> Worst part of being poor is living next to poor people. UBI doesn't make everyone rich, it makes (almost) everyone equally poor. Rural land will ratchet up to ~3-4X UBI per homestead (traditional housing rule-of-thumb is 3X annual income).

H*ll, I know a guy that could hire six Panamanians for half that. πŸ˜‰

MSM with these articles again. Imagine thinking you couldn't contract a team of 3 or 4 American engineers to find an exploit for a mere $2M.

Full disclosure: I'm a no coiner. I think it's a CCP op. But I respect others wish and ability to make fiat with it.

I mean, you are using it to make fiat right? Not just watching number go up.

Since there appears to be a lot of coiner bros here, I thought I'd share this podcast. From Dec. It's about a lot more than coins though. Mentions Libra coin, which most of world has conveniently forgotten about. Enjoy! ttmygh.podbean.com/e/teg_0013/

There are a lot of big accounts I like to reply to and RT w/ comment for benefit of my bros. It's not important to me whether the original account sees my comments.

Question: How hard to create a bot that re-toots twit accounts?

@admin Is there an easy way to follow everyone? I figure I can unfollow later as taste determines to focus TL.
