I'm strongly in favor of referring to this hellsite as #Xitter and pronouncing it as "shitter".

Now that #Xitter is a thing, I'm just here to remind you that "X" in pinyin (the current standard for Latinizing Chinese) is pronounced like "sh." What this implies for the pronunciation of Xitter, should be fairly obvious.

How about instead of claiming this is part of a “strategy” people stop propping up Musk? He is an idiot with a lot of money. He has been like this forever. It’s a comfortable lie to say that he “earned” his way here. https://t.co/pfyk0Mqtii pic.twitter.com/d8JR6wG8tD

You're blackmailing me?
"Blackmail" is such an ugly word. I prefer "extortion".
