Opinion: Nobody should challenge the Queen of Twitch…

Imane “Pokimane” Anys is the one of the creators and streamers on the online streaming platform Twitch, which you should never challenge, question or even comment with a byline or a bulletin for that matter. Pokimane can get people permanently banned or use her gender-role as a victim. While she’s eating lunch while watching TV-Shows on stream.

Pokimane can go after sponsor and sponsorships, but she expects to get her bang for her bucks. She can sign deals and agreements through her management companies. That how things goes. Pokimane can turn against anyone, but she nobody can question her without getting into real trouble.

That’s why she’s the QUEEN of TWITCH. The almighty and powerful person on Twitch. Pokimane will go after Youtubers or Twitch people who makes clips or questions her a little bit. It doesn’t matter who it is, but you should never do that. If you do that… expect to be deemed as misogynist.

While she is a E-Girl who has an army of simps. She might not accept that, as she is getting tier-subs and getting donations from men who is freely giving her money. That is their free-will and if they want too. They can donate or pay her for her services, as a streamer and living on recruit difficulty. Pokimane knows this well and it’s not like she doesn’t enjoy perks of her work and lifestyle. People would have given up a lot of opportunities to get her wealth and influence, which she has…

Pokimane might feel violated, but she has turned online platforms against others. She has gone after sponsors. While she can violate the TOS and not get any real ramification. If things has gone bad… she has gone on vacation or been silent for a minute. Before the she returned like nothing happened.

Her army simps will be behind her no matter what. She is allowed to go after people and their livelihoods. Pokimane can do that, but other creators cannot question her. Not even drop “Ratio-L” or such. It doesn’t matter… because the Queen says so.

The throne is clear and it’s evident. She is an online personality who cannot be questioned or have any call-back. Her folks and team can pull strings… and clearly that is evident. People can enjoy Pokimane’s “transformative” content and ways, but people should be able to say their peace without losing their platform.

If it’s Gundam, Leafy or JiDion for that matter… and we know she goes after Ninja too. If not also going after Bowblax as well. There is no end, as she is vicious and targets people who questions her. Pokimane has also gone on a rampage with copyright strikes against YouTube creators in the past. While she can watch full TV-Content and YouTube videos to kill time on stream between video-games. Therefore, she is not the righteous person to do so…

She just strike against them, because they made content about her, which she didn’t deem fit or didn’t like. Since it just happened to be critical about her. If it was Keemstar or PewDiePie who made video’s about her. That’s why she went after them as well.

Pokimane can act differently and calmly, but it is all calculated. That’s why the ones who aims at her will be hurt. She will use her gender and stigma for her benefit. Pokimane is the Queen and people just have to live with it.

She sits on the throne and can get away with everything. While the detractors will be get punished. Peace.

Opinion: Zuckerberg is going meta

Today Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook Corporation have announced the name-change of the company, which was first known as the “TheFacebook”. Now it has become a tech giant and a vital tool for spreading information and marketing. The social media site is a toxic haven, but also a monopoly of sorts.

Facebook has millions of members and people are showing their lives there. The company owns Instagram and WhatsApp too. So, there are several of entities under his umbrella now. Zuckerberg does this now, because his company is getting tarnished. He needs positivity. So, why not go “meta”?

His company is neither artistic or part of the cultural conversation. Facebook is maybe lacking self-awareness or feeling the room. The founder and owner of the company thinks he can change the narrative by a name-change. However, the problems of Facebook is bigger than that.

He has to address the usage of the social media site. How the page and the platform is being used by certain groups, interests and being controlled for political gains ahead of elections. That the site and its platform is used to spread messages and possible propaganda should be worrying. Alas, he earns fortunes on it and it’s a good business. That’s why he rather “go meta” than take responsibility.

It is not like Zuckerberg is observing things from the outside. No, his just trying to deflect and hope nobody notice it. That this publicity stunt and trying to forget the issues. That Facebook has been used to create social unrest, as well as spread hate and extremism. This is why it suddenly changes name to take away the bad stench.

However, Facebook cannot forget it’s role. That is why companies like Cambridge Analytica and others has used the platform for political gains. Used the platform to spread the campaign misinformation and change elections in their favour. In such a manner of which the tech giant is a useful tool for the hired political operatives.

Just going “meta” isn’t enough. No sorts of metaphysics can save Mark now. He can go all philosophical, but that doesn’t change the fact either. It is a reason why whistleblowers are blowing up the lid and telling their stories. Since, the founder would preferred them to be silent. The backdrops of this is very shady.

He can act like this is no big deal and only a name-change, but it is more to it. As the company wants to be more than just Facebook. They want to be “meta” whatever that means and for whatever purpose that serves. However, right now they have to answer for the usage of the platform and how it has catered to certain parts of the political spectrum. The company and Facebook has to address this as it is concern. That it can be used in this manner and therefore, be a dangerous tool, as well.

No matter how “meta” Zuckerberg goes. This will not change that. The dirt is still on his hands and the cleaning doesn’t start with changing the emblem. The change starts with how the company really operates and runs it’s business. If it cares about the consequences or users. Since this is a definite issue, which will not go away. Peace.

Opinion: Chappelle was just being real

The ones who has issues with Comedian Dave Chappelle after his Netflix special ‘the Closer’ that premiered on the 5th October 2021. It has caused an outcry and sparked controversy. While watching it… I only saw the same real comedian that I gotten know over all the years. The stories, the tales and the reality he describes seems “legit”. So, why this issue now?

Yes, there is always a need to address minorities and their rights. There is a need to viable and be direct about it. Discussions and talks, where people have to in the end, agree to disagree and still be cordial. However, with the comedy special have gotten twisted into something else.

Yes, Chappelle is direct and doesn’t spare any of his words. He knows his craft and has a capacity to blow someone’s mind. The jokes he had was poignant and blasphemous in the woke crowds of the internet. Nevertheless, these folks cannot take a joke or live in our reality. As they want everything to be “correct” and not without consequences. That’s why it’s easy to target the stand-up comedian for telling his story.

Not like Chappelle would change legislation or give more power to you. No, he is just addressing the double standards, the way the LGBTQ have vast power, but no checks or balances on it. Yes, they still have grievances, but who doesn’t right? They are not alone in society and they have come really far. That’s why any sort of Marvel and DC hero is becoming LGBTQ while there is nobody writing stories, which challenges your mind or entertains you for long. Therefore, the group should think about the focus and losing strike to assault Chappelle.

Chappelle even stated that he was tarnished by the group wrongly and been labelled by them. While he never had any real grudges. Heck, he even helped a Trans-Woman to become a better comedian. If he had issues with their “tribe” wouldn’t he had shunned her? Not talked and respected her? Well, he did… so the ones going after him. Don’t like that someone with a huge platform addresses the matter.

The same proof of hypocrisy is stated in the joke on the situation earlier this year of the rapper DaBaby. Who spoke his mind and tried to damage control it afterwards. He was homophobic and speaking ill of it. Alas, that was more damaging to his career, as Dua Lipa and others distances themselves from him. While nobody had any issues with him… because he killed someone at Wall Mart before his career popped-off. Therefore, you can quickly question the morality and the value of their believes.

This is why Chappelle’s Comedy Special is important. Because, it proves the reality. You might not agree with it or accept it. However, if you want things to move forward and understand the questions of our time. There is a need for pieces like these. You cannot have a Political Correct skit or jokes. Nobody will laugh at that and it will be a direct-to-DVD failure of a project. Nobody will watch it or care about it. It is dead on arrival and there was nothing to salvage. Only the pay-checks paid by the producers and the companies involved. The general public will not feel it or even bother.

That’s why Chappelle and such needs to speak their mind. They open an conversation. He proves it and explains the matters with fine detail. He takes responsibility, but also humility. Chappelle isn’t policing, but reacting to the pushbacks, which isn’t fair to him. Since they don’t really know him or his kind. They had labelled him before he went up on stage. Why do you think he should bother to be peaceful and ignorant?

Chappelle is now controversial for good. He drops the bag and everyone can see it. The ones who is displeased cannot mange the reality we live in. They cannot manage their expectations or what is really going on. There are things missing and people who feels touched, feels betrayed and questioned by this. However, have they seen any of other pieces? It is not like he haven’t used this sort of humour before… and they should have been prepared.

Chappelle is bold. He doesn’t pack himself in correctness or badging himself in what is right at the time. Chappelle just spoke his mind and explained a discrepancy in society. However, trying to cancel him is a lost cause. He will just grow stronger. If you have issues with what he said. Try to get legislators to work on legislation and just laws. Make sure the government institutions and everyone else follows these ideals. Not expect a comedian to dance to your tune. That’s not happening. Because, if he did? He wouldn’t be funny. Period. Peace.

Opinion: Trump will not conquer the Silicon Valley

Today, former President Donald J. Trump have launched his Social Media platform – the “Truth Social”, as a part of the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG). This a formed business after a merger with Digital World Acquisition Group (DWAG). The TMTG will have initial growth with the capital from DWAG. So, it is the DWAG who funds the operation and TMTG.

The first launch is the “Truth Social” which is supposed to compete with Facebook and other social medias. That will be a hard battle and not something to easily compete with. Not like other sites haven’t tried and other entrepreneurs has done it’s bidding too. Yes, the hardcore Trump supporters will join in. Just like the few phony Republican’s who bought the “Freedom Phone” too.

That Trump will fight “big tech” isn’t surprising. As Trump needs a new hustle and new scheme to raise funds. Clearly with the evaluation of close to a billion before even launching or having a beta-version out. Heck, there are just pre-pre-signups to it. Therefore, his really betting on another people’s money. While social media haven’t been a cash-cow or an easy way of earning profits. Since, you need research and development. Always need for more updates and reignite to new platforms and versions of smartphones. That is a costly endeavour…

It’s hard to believe that this company will be able to fight the giants now. Since, the owners of other social media are so big, and they have such a “monopoly” over the various fields. In this regard, don’t expect TMTG to be able to compete with Google or Facebook. Heck, they have to battle to even compete with Yahoo. Seriously, they will be a 4Chan and a Reddit level of importance. Some might even say a own stage of IRL Chat or Discord server. Have a hard time believing in the launch or the credibility to beat “big tech”.

I’m old enough to remember Clifford “T.I.” Harris launching the social media site “Streetcred.com” and it never popped off. It was a flair and a try into a new field for the rapper and entrepreneur. However, it wasn’t all that and neither was the features on the sight anything to aspire too. Neither was your friends there or your family. So, it was only a few fans of T.I. and that’s it.

On this site and networks… it will be filled the Trump supporters and the Republicans who feels left out from the rest of the social media sphere. It will be a 4Chan and a Gab. I cannot see this becoming a true a competitor or even can gain so much traction. Since, the established ones have the familiarity and the people on it already. So, it’s a David against Goliath without even a proper tool to sling the stone.

I have a feeling this will be dissolved just like “Streetcred.com” did. Unless, he has enough gullible supporters and rich patronage who wants to fund the losing enterprise. Since, this will not be a winning a place or a profitable enterprise. No, this will be an endless money-pit with few to none avenues of finding places to gain revenue. Therefore, TMTG better hope DWAG gets more investors and financial muscles. They have a mountain to climb and need experienced people to pass over the mountain passes.

Trump has so many failed businesses. This would be another one… wouldn’t be shocked if this followed the airplane, vodka or steaks. Heck, this could be another casino venture of epic failure. So, the ones putting stocks into this and investing. The money is already lost and there will be no way of getting returns on the investment. That capital is gone and so in the name of the company as well. Peace.

Nigeria: Legal Defence and Assistance Project (LEDAP) – LEDAP Condemns the Twitter Suspension by the Federal Government and Calls for its Immediate Reversal (10.06.2021)

Opinion: Buhari acts more swift on Twitter than he does on internal matters ….

The Nigerian General and President Muhammadu Buhari have swiftly reacted after Twitter deleted one of his posts on its pages. As it was in breach with it’s Terms of Service (ToS). This has clearly hit a nerve and the Nigerian government have in response suspended Twitter and also it’s official accounts.

The state have gone rouge on this. The President took it personal that his account was touched and his reasoning for posting on Twitter got under question. However, this only shows his inept and lack of good governance. It is only showing his disregard for free speech and liberty for all. Just because, he couldn’t follow the standards of the social media company and their policies. As a President he should be the example of good conduct and not the other way around.

President Buhari is only looking like a sour loser. Retaliating at Twitter and banning it in the Republic. Making it a criminal act to publish or write there. That just show how easy it is to make a small case into a societal problem. The President could have taken it on the chin, but instead gone to battle. A battle he will loose and only losing support elsewhere. His looking crazy and Twitter has lost nothing. That’s the tragic thing here.

If President Buhari had worked this to reform SARS and the Police itself. The Nigerian public would maybe been giddy. If the President had worked as hard to stop insurgency and violence. Instead his thriving in it and using it for political capital. The President should have acted on this in that manner and not on a social media site. It just show his mixed priorities.

The General should have shown the will and power towards Boko Haram. When civilians are abducted and kidnapped. When massacres have happened and when police brutality have happened. He should have cried havoc and showed character then too. However, then his talking about procedures, policies and all other excuses to do something. At that point, the President is a slow-train coming.

However, when Twitter triggered him. He could just touch the button and silence it. That’s why this is a bitch move. It is not a proof of power or force. No, it is an act of an coward. Who cannot stand up to his words or his acts on social media. It is easier to suspend or block a page, than actually ask why the post was deleted in the first place.

That just shows what sort of man Buhari is. If Buhari thinks this is wise or great. It is his greatest illusion. A man with such an office can achieve so much and create a lot of things for the future. However, this is only belittling his citizens and their voices online. Instead of showing greatness and humility. The President retaliated… and acted in fury.

President Buhari haven’t proved that he has achieved anything this term. Only been an android, Jubril from Sudan and blocked twitter. He got little to nothing to show from it and his record is abysmal. This is not making things better. Peace.

Nigeria: National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) – Suspend Twitter Handles (06.06.2021)

Opinion: Def Noodles, the wasted YouTube Commentary Channel…

Def Noodles, if you don’t know about his videos or his content. I hate to break it too you, but your not missing out on anything. The guy behind it all is a man named Dennis Feitosa. A man who is supposed to give you Satirical News on his YouTube Channel. However, that falls flat and isn’t what it seems.

This man is supposed to be a comedian. Nevertheless, it is hard to believe this man ever met a true heckler. Since, everyone who comments or says anything negative on social media gets blocked. Even just association with critical voices is a reason for the comedian to block. If there was a dictatorial comedian. Def Noodles is the character to fit this definition.

Def Noodles could easily need the sort of praise and hand-rubs that dictators gets from their yes-men. He needs the playful interactions like them. Have a 100 people for his every joke and his every move. Surely those cat-ears needs to be appreciated. News read from a Minecraft-house is such a good platform to begin with. It is pure genius. Just like his “irrelevant news”.

He is so slanderous and doesn’t care about research. I think he doesn’t care, as long as he throws a few creators, influencers and tik-toker’s under the bus. Heck, he will drive over them with pallet-cleansers and use the pickle-ice-cream joke to the death of them. That is the sort of man he is. Yes, he is repetitive and we are not even talking about the inflamed-thumbnail on nearly every video has.

Def Noodles could need a team behind him. Since, he clearly cannot even read hashtags and study the things he retweets. As long as they are targeting popular online creators. It is fine and dandy. Especially, if those people have other scandals and he monetize this as well. That is what he does and he pushes it every single day.

It is like he wants to go after all the commentaries on YouTube. He just wants to cancel them, because one fella started to brutally destroy his “show” a few years back. Kavos who had a review-show on his YouTube channel and speaking his peace. That hurt his pride and he could never let it go. That is why everytime someone else has done the same. He has either tried to find something on them or blocked them. Now, his the biggest blocker on Twitter and the blocking tab he has must be longer than voter rolls in China.

Let’s just be clear. For a commentator himself and comedian. He got no spine. Dennis needs to grow some balls. As long as he attacks other online and uses his platform without verified information. Sooner or later he will get into trouble. Hell, someone might find some dirt him themselves. Not only the ill-advised representation of fellow creators or influencers. He might make a wedge and suddenly stumble upon someone with a huge platform and money to bury him.

It is just a matter of time before a case of slander and defamation hits the fan. He cannot continue to say and publish narratives, which isn’t true. No matter if his wearing cat-ears or not. Def Noodles cannot get away with slander, which is destroying people careers and especially asking sponsors to stop associating with other YouTuber’s without any serious proof to the alleged allegations. That is why at some point. Some of the stuff he does will haunt him and someone can point a finger at him.

A man like that should be careful. However, click-bait and the platform of a half-million subscribers make it seem like a good investment of your time. Having over 83 million views since 13th October 2018 is a good achievement. Nevertheless, if that is built on a lie and of slander. It is really a sad way to go out. Building up your own platform and then destroy it. Just because you couldn’t keep your head cool and try to verify the stories your telling. That is really a tragic way of living not only life, but your “reporting”.

Def Noodles could use his platform for good. Instead his so into his own games. That his soon outplaying himself. It is just a matter of time. At some point someone will say: “how dare you speak of me and my family in this way” and they will find some remedies to settle it. Sooner or later, he might get strikes and get demonetized.

What I can say… I used to watch his videos until a few months ago. When my wife spotted the obvious of how repetitive and non-funny he was. Because, during quarantine and such. Videos like him started to pop-up on my YouTube feed. Therefore, I started to watch. Now, I have quit and I don’t regret it.

So my last remark is… that I wish him all the best as a content creator. However, he should be careful. It is always nice to check and research sources. Especially, when you have so many eyes watching and you have questionable actions done in the past. I have deleted and begged forgiveness when I have posted fake things and been in the wrong. That is what a person does and take responsibility for the mistake and the lack of research. As you get caught up in the hype and publish without thinking. I have done that during elections and campaigns, when they have manufactured letters and statements. Therefore, I know the issues and is cautious of doing it now.

That is something Def Noodles should do as well. However, I don’t think he has the heart or the will power to do that. He just want the click-bait and the internet outrage to drive his stats. So, that he get more ad-revenue on his channel. Peace.
