Social media is about to change yet again. Have you subscribed to Mastodon yet? Not the band but the new social media platform. There has been quite an uproar since Elon Musk’s involvement with Twitter. People either hate, enjoy, or don’t seem to care about it either way. Regardless, there have been many layoffs and resignations since the controversy started, including reinstating the account of former president Donald Trump. Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter, expressing his concerns and desire to leave the social media platform, expressing:


“I’m about to depart. We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and solve everything. Even without him involved, I just find that it has become such a toxic environment. For my mental health, I need to tune out. I don’t feel good being there anymore.”


It didn’t take Reznor long since, as of yesterday (20th), his account with nearly two million followers is no more. Meanwhile, the Nine Inch Nails account remains active. Elon Musk quickly discovered this as he engaged in a Twitter thread sharing his opinion that Reznor is a “crybaby.” However, he did admit to enjoying Nine Inch Nails but suggested Etsy may fit Reznor’s style more. And somehow, this has become news.


Outside of music, this has definitely not been the first and probably won’t be the last seeing Musk troll and spend his days twiddling his thumbs making many Tweets and replies. What else do billionaires have to do with their time? Last week, #RIPJimmyFallon was trending when Jimmy Fallon is very much alive and well. Fallon reached out to Musk via Twitter, asking him to fix it, and Musk replied,

“Wait a second, how do we know you’re not an alien body snatcher pretending to be Jimmy!?  Say something that only the real Jimmy would say …”


This Twitter drama makes us miss Myspace and our first friend on the platform, Tom.
