A pity conservatives don't follow suit

PewDiePie is done with Twitter now too:
On Sunday he announced he will be quitting YouTube in 2020.

And a day later, PewDiePie wiped his Twitter account of all its tweets, keeping the profile there only to 'prevent fake accounts'.

The online sensation, 30, had been using Twitter regularly but unfollowed all of the accounts he once followed.
Good for him. Twitter is a cesspool. And on a not-entirely-unrelated note, the first SG2 invites to Unauthorized Annual members have gone out. The SG1 subscribers will be invited next. Once all the Unauthorized members have been invited, we'll look at opening it up to everyone who is interested. This is a process that will take several weeks at a minimum, and we want to go step-by-step in order to manage the initial influx, so please be patient.

And yes, Castalia Deluxe members will also be receiving Bronze SG2 subscriptions in due course. Complete with a special book icon for the readers....

I'm so excited!

Today Pewds ends a video with "F*** Twitter." How soon will it be "F*** YouTube" instead?

Blogger Ransom Smith December 16, 2019 9:01 PM  

With the money and follow his has, he can start his own platform easily should he so choose.
Youtube however will see a definite user drop when he stops posting.

I have been slow to notice but I saw a Donald J Trump youtube channel today. It appeared to have be run by the GE himself. It had a video of Barr talking about the various malfeasances shown by the IG report.

Is there a strategic angle for him to be in there now?

Blogger John Bradley December 16, 2019 9:36 PM  

He put up a video earlier today explaining why he's done with Twitter -- it's a cesspool of virtue-signalling idiots; a terrible place for terrible people.

In the video, he even quotes frickin' Aristotle: "The Path that leads to Virtue is also the path that leads to happiness."

OT: Things are getting frisky in VA -

A bill to immediately and automatically terminate law enforcement officers who refuse to enforce gun control (and other) laws.

"/B./Any/public safety/employee of the Commonwealth, or of any county, city, town or other political subdivision thereof, or of any agency of any one of them,who, in concert with two or more other such employees, for the purpose of obstructing, impeding or suspending any activity or operation of his employing agency or any other governmental agency, strikes or willfully refuses to perform the duties of his employment shall, by such action, be deemed to have terminated his employment and shall thereafter be ineligible for employment in any position or capacity during the next twelve/12/months by the Commonwealth, or any county, city, town or other political subdivision of the Commonwealth, or by any department or agency of any of them."

It says "Twit" right in the name.

Blogger Nathan V December 16, 2019 9:52 PM  

I found it interesting that PewDiePie started a video talking about hating Twitter and then spend the rest of the video talking about Aristotle

Blogger CanticBear December 16, 2019 10:01 PM  

Pewdiepie leaving twitter and YouTube?! What’s next? Genocide?!?!?!

Blogger Lazarus December 16, 2019 10:01 PM  

Speaking of Platforms.....I went to YouTube to search for a channel I heard about, and they gave me a list of recommended channels.. Guess what. Big Bear vids were featured.

Now that that is out of the way, a guy named Ohio Fire Bear is re-upping BB's dlive streams on Youtube, which is good, because BB's streams on are technically flawed. The video and audio aren't synchronized. Maybe it is a problem on my end, but I emailed about it and got no response.

So thank you Ohio Fire Bear.

As an early member of SocialGalactic Mark I, I eagerly look forward to my invitation for the second round.

Looks like it’s been there a while. 272 videos uploaded. Oldest one is 2yo. I didn’t know it was there either. Im subbed now.

Blogger Dark glasses Woody December 16, 2019 11:29 PM  

Conservatives can't change their suits. The threat to the left establishment is the radical fringe, the threat to the right is their comfortable middle. That suit was made for this comfortable gut; so why would I move from a time tested rut?

Great news in the special book icon!

I was an original Brainstormer, and silver IG supporter for a year and a half, maybe two years, had to drop it, for financial reasons. Looking foward to the public release of SG. I know, how much awesome you all are having right now!

Blogger Unknownsailor December 17, 2019 3:17 AM  

Reports that PewDiePie is quitting YT are fake news. He said, and I quote, "I'm taking a break". Tim Pool has made a video about this.

Good on him for quitting Twitter, though. The place is a cesspool, and no one who values their sanity should be there any more.

Blogger Amethyst Dominica December 17, 2019 4:54 AM  

Looks like the Hallmark Channel is deciding that it wants to join the long list of companies that go woke and go broke:

Hmm. So the alphabet mafia claims the scalp of another (ostensibly) pro-Evangelical Christian institution. I wonder if this is softening up the battleground? That this is all gonna end with a big push to take over the (as yet unconverged)churches in America?

Blogger Unknown December 17, 2019 4:57 AM  

@vox Will YouTube members get anything for SG2?

Blogger Karen took the Kids December 17, 2019 5:34 AM  

In the video he's quoting Aristotlean literature on virtue. He gets it.

Is there any chance of an icon for Junior Classics contributors Vox?

Blogger Brett baker December 17, 2019 6:03 AM  

Can't wait for TGE's executive order that requires termination with extreme prejudice for anyone running a "sanctuary" city, county, or state!

Blogger Section 8A December 17, 2019 6:35 AM  

Good for PDP. Getting booted from Twitter was a huge help for me. I called Charlie Kirk a 'mongoloid' and got bounced. The constant push by the Keepers of the Narrative to herd everyone into ever shrinking pens is failing. Some of the Herd break out and go to their own pen.

Blogger Duke Norfolk December 17, 2019 6:37 AM  

@18 I saw this recent news of Hallmark's bending of the knee to Globohomo, and told my wife (who's a fan) to watch for their upcoming "A Very Special Transsexual Christmas"; just for their most loyal followers, I'm sure.

I've said to her over the last of years that there must have been ongoing big pressure on them to embrace the poz. I'd hoped that they would somehow resist, but no.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan December 17, 2019 6:56 AM  

I use twitter and have made a few thousand tweets, I follow 14 right leaning people which follow the zeitgeist of the day. Even with that bubble I immerse myself in I can tolerate but a few minutes at a time, best I can tell its the same old conservative model of people telling me what the Left has done and is doing.

What would the Left do without conservative outrage, and more importantly what would the Left do without the eventual approval from conservatives? Heck we even set ourselves up for a good scolding about "white washing."

Blogger Damelon Brinn December 17, 2019 7:04 AM  

Twitter is awful. It's become the ideal safe space for SJWs. It allows a sprinkling of heretic rock-throwers so the SJWs have someone to gang up on, while supplying the constant validation and moral superiority they feel from being in the majority. It's perfect for women and weak men who love to fight as long as there's no risk of getting hurt. Leave them to their echo chamber.

Definitely Gold, possibly Silver.

Thanks. Much appreciated.

Looking forward to this. Havent been on any kind of social media for about 3-4 years so this is really good.

I am an unauthorized 10$/m and Castalia 20$/m via Patreon supporter so i suppose ill get an invite. And if not ill just wait for my turn.

Blogger Falcor December 17, 2019 8:26 AM  

Thanks to Vox, Owen, and team (and Twitter and Instagram!) for making this happen.

Like the Second Amendment sanctuary counties in Virginia?

Mr. Lincoln's empire is nothing to celebrate or preserve.

@18 and @23

We don't have a TV. We watch disks and streams so we are not exposed to many commercials. When we went to visit family recently, my children and I watched a couple of movies on TV with commercials.

Though I don't know if it was Hallmark specifically, we saw numerous "Christmas" tv movies advertised during the weekend. The content was quite informative.

* None of these ostensibly Christmas movies had an overt Christian theme. They were all romance movies. The underlying message across the board was "find your true love during the Holiday Season!"

* Several depicted interracial relationships as the core "True Love" romance.

None of the ads for these movies mentioned Christ, God, The Nativity or showed scenes in a church, people praying or reading the Bible, etc.

Pure Secular Romance Movie, but banking on the "Christmas" cultural draw as something special.

Rather sickening, really.

@VD can we Europeans use SG2?

Blogger Charlie the Chaste December 17, 2019 11:19 AM  

I have heard no word on banning Europeans. Also, VD is in Italy so you're almost certainly fine.

Blogger Statix December 17, 2019 4:30 PM  

Wonder if Pewds will endorse/partner with an alternative platform like he did with DLive. *Psst* Social Galactic.

Blogger Bibliotheca Servare December 17, 2019 11:20 PM  

Looking forward to SG2. Will pseudonyms be allowed as with SG1?

I've become rather attached to this handle, silly as it is, and I obviously don't relish the prospect of revealing my identity to the sorts of people who will inevitably be trolling SG2 for doxxing and swatting targets.

Blogger MrNiceguy December 18, 2019 1:58 AM  

To comply with Truth In Advertising laws, they did amend the commercial to include a girl-on-girl domestic violence scene at the end.
