That’s not what paywalled means.

stux,

And that's why the "quotes" 😉

    For what it's worth, I agree with you @assbutt.

    People who think paywall is synonymous with sign-in or account required probably spell "should have" with an "of."

    disposabletentacle,

    Joke's on you, I spell it "shud'v"!

    stux,

    I think your username says it all 🤣

    You may have a point, but it's just that your replies have a certain quality to them which make you sound like an ass... butt... 🤔

    No one's shitting on you for pointing it out mate. See anyone calling the original commenter of this chain a dick for pointing it out? No? Because that's not the issue. People are shitting on you for being a cunt.

    I read your comments hence my reply. Now how about you take your own advice and read mine eh? I wasn't arguing against anything. I was telling you you're a right cunt. Clear enough for you mate? Now move on.

    Gonna throw another tantrum? Have at it. That's all I've seen you do mate. You can keep flinging shit here since you're so full of it. I, however, will be signing off so might as well save your tears for another thread. Peace

    Who’s really “being a shit” here? I see nobody else being hostile but you. Accusing people of that which you are doing yourself is called “projection”.

    Nobody else is pedantically picking apart silly things like wording and terminology and then lashing out at others. Just you. We all knew what he meant. Were you ever told as a kid to “pick your battles”? Do you know what that means? Not everything deserves a response.

    What’s the matter, did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning and decide to take it out on the world? Significant other break up with you or cheat on you? Got fired? Did your pet die? Why are you so angry at the world? What did it ever do to you? None of those things (whichever is applicable) is our problem.

    Please, let’s leave those kinds of toxic, hostile behaviors on the dead bird site and reddit where they belong. We’re trying to build something new here.

    Otherwise, “play stupid games, win stupid prizes” and people are just going to report you for repeated incivility and offensive language.

    EDIT: And your reply has been reported too. Since all you know is how to behave like a child, maybe we should all treat you like one.

    Cinner,

    Quotes are often used around a word when it's similar enough to another word to be understood.

    Paywalled means you must have an account and pay in order to view an article.

    There is no equivalent word that comes to mind for this, but "paywalled" is so close as to be misunderstood only if you're trying to do so -- you must now have an account and login in order to view what's behind the login wall.

    OP could mean whenever they want. Most people understood what OP meant. I was just making a point that data is often an overlooked currency.
    Also aren't you being pedant by explaining OP didn't use the correct vernacular?

    Says the user who started this whole thing because they needed to feel heard.

    Language is fluid, interchangeable, context driven, and not everyone feels as passionately as you about misused words (because language is fluid and interchangeable). So if you want to start an argument over trivial issues then expect people to be "insufferable".

    Thekingoflorda,

    Would you mind going back to reddit?

    Not really. When I read that title, my first thought was twitter had implemented some sort of paid tier. It was arguably misleading

    Cinner,

    It seems you're squarely the exception to the rule.

    Works now, though I don't know what nitter.net's method of obtaining Tweet data is, and wouldn't be terribly surprised if Twitter intends to crack down on that, sooner or later.

    Twitter: You need to turn off two-factor authentication because we put that behind a paywall.

    Twitter: You need an account to view content now.

    These two things combined just mean I'm not going to be looking at Twitter content, period. I refuse to disable 2FA and make my account less secure, so I just logged out. By logging out, I now am unable to view content. Twitter's slowly doing everything they can to kill off the efficacy of corporate messaging on their platform, huh?

    I'm now expecting Elon Jr. (Spez) to do the same on Reddit because Elon is his idol and mentor.

    I wish there was an option on to exclude search results that point to Twitter since I can no longer read them. It's now just clutter in the search results.

    climatepenguin,

    @Jerry @stux @MissingThePt You can add -site:twitter.com to exclude Twitter results

    @stux apparently twitter didn’t think of what would happen if they redirected incorrect and twitter ddosed themselves early this morning I guess its time for the fireworks.

    Fine by me.

    I tried to stop giving Twitter any clicks at all some time ago, but it didn't always work because so many people insist on linking it on other sites, so I'd occasionally end up giving Twitter a click inadvertently.

    Now that'll just take me to a login page that I'll back out of.

    @stux Well, I don't mind. If I wanted to see something there, I'd use Nitter. At least my friend won't be sending me links to twitter anymore.

    Edit for all those who where worried about a "misleading title"🧡

    It's a terrible decision, but I think they just couldn't keep the servers up for the average user because of the "optimizations". People look for news on Telegram anyway nowadays.
