Tucker Carlson is a f*cking lunatic, white supremacist, mysogynist, and Russian propagandist

I am not familiar with this guy but he sounds disgusting.
Watters was a low-watt, high functioning lackey for Bill O'Reilly back when that mattered. Since O'Reilly left Fox, he's been bouncing around shows trying to make a name for himself (and not doing very well at it).

The thing about Carlson was that he was able to maintain O'Reilly's octogenarian audience while also bringing in his Nazi viewers.

The new guy is basically a perpetual frat boy who is repellant to both.

That's a funny way of saying "My website is full of bots".

Carlson is an American celebrity and his reach is mostly limited to the USA. Outside of the English-speaking world, he's pretty much a nobody. America has a population of 332 million people - TwitteX has a worldwide, monthly active user base of about 330 million people, about 100 million of those are expected to live in the US.

That means those 265 million views can only be explained by things like Musk forcing that feeble-minded nazi goblin on his customers, a lax definition of "view", counting single "views" as multiple "views" and excessive use of bots*.

Or maybe Musk just made that number up.

This guy really is an idiot.



* which - ironically - is something Musk criticized Twitter for before he bought it

I saw something similar yesterday, coming from another high profile idiot.

This does seem to be making the rounds recently among them as they shout it from the rooftops; the latest iteration of their "white genocide" screeching.

ETA: I remember what it was now. A siimilar statement was made by some yahoo on Twitter and Musk agreed with, called it the truth.

A click-through does not a viewer make.
Doesn't even have to be a click-through; the Musk-era "impression" just means it's been called by a client. If it shows up on your feed that's an impression, even if you did nothing but scroll right past it.

Doesn't sound as pithy.

I don't know why everyone tolorates this nonsense. All these numbers and statistics have become abstraction on top of abstraction so much that its meaningless. But hey, some ad exec like bigger is better so its got to be doing great!

It's so The Musky One can brag about how many impressions posts on Xitter still get - particularly his.
