Who would have thought that lay off more than half of your staff to try to make money as soon as possible Was leaving the most basic parts of your social network unattended to be a problem? Last year we experienced the beginning of the end of Twitter, the social network to which many of us continue to cling mainly to comment on its own debacle. And now it has affected the cinema in the most Twitter way possible.
Somebody just told me the world is gonna roll me
Elon Musk has bet everything that, as users, we pay a monthly subscription (Twitter Blue) to have some special advantages, such as editing tweets, having a verified badge (or rather “this person pays”) and upload videos of more than two twenty minutes, the limit that until now had the network. But once the law has been cheated: if for 8 euros a month I can upload videos of the size I want (up to an hour), why not upload full movies?
With the elimination of certain jobs, so has the possibility of deleting copyrighted videos: a user uploaded the entire ‘Full throttle: Tokyo Race’, the third part of ‘Fast & Furious’, in a thread of fifty tweets, without the system being able to do absolutely nothing to delete them. And if it ended up being deleted, it was not because Universal claimed it, but because it reached one of the few workers still standing and deleted it manually. The bots don’t work.
Since then, and more since the arrival of Twitter Blue, things have only gotten worse: the most famous case in Spanish is that of ‘Shrek 2’, which currently has 3.9 million views, but you can also find (or could find until recently) ‘Shrek’, ‘Coraline’ or ‘SpongeBob: The Movie’ in high definition. If Twitter has become a joke, users have seemed to say, let’s all laugh
Of course, this is an illegal practice, but if whoever has to control the users is more concerned with fixing what was not brokenthis is the result: Who wants Netflix having… Twitter?
