Why Ello might succeed

(Follow me on Ello: )

Gigaom founder Om Malik tweeted: “The obsessive coverage of Ello is less about Ello. Instead, it really is about our growing dissatisfaction with the state of social networks.”

In fact, we tend to love new social networks and hate older ones. The reason, I believe, is that both popularity (here comes everybody!) and monetization (ads, algorithmic noise filtering, personal data harvesting) are the qualities that spoil the fun private club aspect that new social networks have.

Does Google’s, Amazon’s and Facebook’s personal data harvesting do a good job customizing ads and content?

Do the ads you see on Google sites and Facebook match your interests?

Is your Google+ notifications filled with posts you want to see?

Does offer you products you want to buy, or is it more about products you have already bought or decided not to buy?

Have you found that personal data harvesting does a good job of customizing what you see online?

don’t panic. don’t go complaining in #twitlive about it because that will only get you banned.

Tom Merritt: former host of tnt was let go for wanting to get paid for a living. he can now be found at

if you want to chat with Tomm you can goto and use the web chat.

NSFW is no longer on twit. Brian Brushwood and jury may also be getting shunned by twit. but you can still find them on the internet doing shows.

this is not a complete list the shunned by twit gang that would take all day to write.
you can add to the list in comments if you like.

we don’t negotiate with cunchZillas

bribri and jurbs buckle under the pressure that twit or their conscious/guilt over their departure. or maybe seconds thoughts about their “tech guise” comedy routine  . Basically they found them selves in hot water and buckled.

But to the thinkFluencer over at twit. I have this to say to the psycho. cunchZilla we don’t negotiate with psycho cunchZillas. you scare bribri and jurbs but totaldrama is not scared of a big ugly cunchZilla even if you make me want to sleep with the lights on.


just because we don’t agree with your constant bullshit that doesn’t  automatically make us trolls. Not every one wants to join your cult.

Also if you did a better job controlling your trolls #gum and #jarjar we probably  wouldn’t hate them so much. Not mention trolls like #dan and #pooperX

plus can somebody please tell #gum to stop posting pictures of food and other stupid crap on twitter all the time. he’s damn retarded. it’s enough already. shit.

scoobydoo mystery tipline attack of the cunchZilla



All day long in or chat room #drama people have been dropping in and asking what the hell happened on [na] last night? The answerer is we don’t know what the hell happened. Jurbs and bribri were so blasted last night that it was hard to piece together what was going on.

we do know that they seemed scared to death for the well being of their friends left over at twit and begged that no one retaliates against twit/or the powers that might be that lurk in the darkness that control twit.

bribri was obviously shaken  up and feared for their safety and well bean. It looked like bribri might cry for second. or maybe he was just holding back his drunken puke. we don’t know he might of just needed a nap to sleep it off.

Jurbs didn’t really know what was going on he was blasted to. One second jurbs was letting the beans out “it was more yoko than john” the next he was agreeing with bribri DON’T TAKE IT OUT ON chad/padre/friends left behind. The next minute he was back in “the tech guise” mode talking smack, and so it went back and forth. in and out of coherent thought and then back into sloppily buzzed smack talking about padre and random joke bible verses.

As usual jurbs was ready to party and bribri supplied the buzzkill and tried to bring things back to reality. But since bribri was also buzzed his straight man reality created just as much awkwardness as jurbs comedy routine .

So to sum things up we don’t know what the hell happened . And for totaldrama’s part in this. Totaldrama  has nothing to do with jurbs and bribri we have been making fun of the ttg and thinkFlencers long before “the tech guise”.

We are left with a puzzling mystery.

Did #cunchZillia threaten to abuse someone in the dungeons of the twit brick house or even worse in the #gum rape-room/news-room if bribri and jurbs didn’t beg to the internet trolls to leave twit alone? Or was it all just a drunken comedy bit that fell apart?

we are left with so many questions that its a mystery best left for scoobydoo and the gang.
