Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced late Friday that the social media platform will unveil a stronger set of rules against sexual harassment and threats of violence after women led by actress Rose McGowan and others boycotted the platform.

What, the boycott accomplished something?

I boycotted too, and I have a penis. It was Follow Friday, and hopefully the drop in US usage got noticed somewhere up in whatever passes for the executive suite at twitter.

She DID dox, but the problem I saw was that much worse doxxings go on daily, without punishment. If you're going to enforce the rules on a high-profile celeb, why not enforce them on bigger offenders such as the alt-right and whacko conservative former MPs?

It wasn't helpful that twitter's exex made a big deal out of turning over 210 suspected Russian psyop account names, as if that would fix everything. There are probably more like 5000 that meet that description, and if you count bots and troll farms, it's into the tens of millions.

Therefore, I'm dubious. Impression counts are the new god online, and just like in TV, it doesn't matter how they are achieved.
