    Yes I keep getting Elon Musk in my timeline just because Trent and a few others follow him. It’s very annoying

    And then there's also muting words, that can also really help.

    I can’t think of any words I could mute to make the experience better. I’m only on there to follow music, entertainment anyway, I’ll just have to ignore the extraneous stuff

    Good. Anything short of that is implicitly supporting that asshole. We should all be as brave.

    Smartassery is disingenuity balanced by awareness. Another version of that is "the failure point of clever is asshole".

    So yeah I get your point, but we're both aware that's not really the point.

    Newsflash!: Thousandaire and hundredaire NIN fans are still willing to buy $50 T-shirts.

    Prime meme fodder, just need that scene from Before the Flood of Leo touring the Tesla factory with recent batshit Musk quotes underneath.

    Censorship of who? Oh, you mean the billionaire president who tried to stage a coup last year and who now has his own social media site to rant on? Yeah, we definitely need to hear MORE from him.

    Good for Trent for leaving, although I have to say that it's pretty easy for him. He rarely uses social media these days. Also, the fact that Musk claims to have been a fan is hilarious given how many songs are about guys like him. He and Paul Ryan need to share a beer sometime and lament over why their musical heroes failed them.

    Nothing says free speech like burying posts in the feed because you didn’t subscribe to twitter blue!

    glad Trent did this. I’ve been trying to wind down my twitter use to go just sports related stuff at this point, but at some point I’ll be leaving too.

    Saying Trent leaving because of censorship is ridiculous. From what he's posted, he (like many) are leaving because Twitter is an even more toxic place now. If a certain platform has become something you despise, why stay? Good for him, and others, doing what is best for them.

    TR: "I'm about to depart Twitter, we don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and solve everything, it's a toxic environment and I don’t feel good being there anymore"
    tony.parente: "Yet you have millions of dollars and have T-Shirts that cost $50. Curious! I am very intelligent."

    I know bitching about NIN prices and constantly framing TR as a money-grubbing rich asshole is like, your thing, but these are basically the same asinine talking points that shithead Musk himself used when he pointed out that AOC had (union-made) merch that cost more than his stupid Twitter Blue verification subscription, as if that proved literally anything, and if that's not enough to make you embarrassed of this rube-status take, frankly, it should be. To frame TR and Musk as being comparable in terms of wealth (entertainers' income is a drop in the bucket next to billionaires like Musk but please continue to miss the forest for the trees) and "arrogance" (Musk has proven himself to be one of the most insufferable, obnoxious, unjustifiably egotistical people on the entire planet but TR is arrogant because, what, the Vinyl Mission Statement you like to make fun of?) is at best knowingly reductive, at worst idiotic.

    The funny thing is TR barely used his Twitter account anymore so this really isn't much of a story.

    Supporting censorship what where ? Point on the doll where Reznor touched the censorship. Also, point on the dolll where you think the censorship is.

    While I'm sympathetic to the idea that Trent is a part of an elite wealthy class, albeit, a smaller one than musk, I'm not sure the t-shirts are the item to point to in saying that the pot is calling the kettle black. I don't know that I think Trent is so much more greedy than your average successful rockstar. Indie bands sell shirts for just as much, I just bought like two from Lightning Bolt and Dreadnought, so I think that's just what t-shirts cost. Tax the rich.

    Also Trent Reznor is rich *because* he is a crybaby. From Head Like a Hole to She's Gone Away, they're all crybaby songs for crybabies and this is where us crybabies go to cry about them.

    Dear fellow Trent fans: am I the only one who remembers the glory days of the Photoshop thread on Old ETS? We invented CryBaby Trent over 12 years ago! We should have copyrighted that shit.

    Example:




    We also came up with Pointing Trent, which has its own entry in the urban dictionary: https://www.urbandictionary.com/defi...inting%20Trent

    It just prove how out of touch Musk is; thinking he is so clever by trying to mock TR. Only us, his "true fans" get to mock him! / sarcasim

    Coming soon: A remake of Cry-Baby... Starring Trent Reznor. Tell me you would not watch him in a teen romcom. Money.

    "Drapes & Squares" is a perfect opening track on the TR/AR score.

    The fact that Elon just had to shoehorn an insult towards TR out of nowhere is so fucking funny. You can tell this one bothered him.

    nothing lasts forever. certainly not any space where we can find reznor. i feel like i should mention he made no posts about quitting twitter. he was asked about it in an interview and this is what happens. the whole thing is rather over the top.

    i did like his twitter but mostly for his likes. there were funny and cool and endearing stuff in there. it was really the only place you could see him “liking” anything.
