‘Anxious’ Twitter Users Already Seeking Alternative Social Media Platforms After Musk Takeover
Elon Musk has taken over Twitter. And right on cue, woke lefties are already losing their minds over the news.
According to an article from CNN Business, “anxious” Twitter users are in search of new alternatives to the platform as the Musk deal closes.
From the outlet:
In the hours after Elon Musk completed his purchase of Twitter late Thursday, many avid users began voicing their uncertainty about the future of the platform and whether they want to remain on it. But with few obvious alternatives, Twitter users may be left with nowhere else to go…
“Let’s go back to Tumblr. It’s time,” tweeted Chris Grant, group publisher of Polygon and The Verge. “I already hate this site but this feels like maybe the moment to nuke the ol’ account permanently. Where do the cool kids hang out that isn’t owned by [points Elon’s way].”
We really should’ve stuck with myspace,” tweeted screenwriter Jessica Ellis.
“SAVE US FRIENDSTER,” Patton Oswalt, the actor and stand-up comedian, posted on Twitter.
You can’t make this stuff up. What’s interesting about all this hysteria from woke leftists is that there has been virtually no discussion from Musk about banning accounts.
Just word of reinstating accounts that should have never been removed in the first place like former President Donald Trump and Kanye West.

The left clearly takes issue with this, because it means many of their progressive ideas and talking points will be challenged far more than they have been in the past. Which is not how Twitter is supposed to work according to these “anxious” liberals.
One of the new social media sites liberals have been fleeing to is Tribel. Which has preemptively banned Donald Trump and his son, Elon Musk, and Kanye West from its platform.
Tribal, which has likely garnered a lot of new users thanks to the left freaking out over the highly anticipated Musk takeover of Twitter this week, seems to be on a banning spree.
Which is rich considering the social media network prides itself on and promises to promote a place of inclusion, tolerance, and free speech.
Tribel has been trending on Twitter a lot this week not just for its blatant censorship against conservatives and wrongthink, but also for its terrible cyber security issues and data harvesting.
The following now-deleted section in Tribel’s Terms of Service has also come under fire in recent days.
Tribel stated that in exchange for using the site, users agreed to:
An unlimited, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, transferable, assignable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, edit, translate, distribute, commercially exploit, repurpose, perform and display any and all Posted Information, including personal information, survey answers … and all other kinds of information you post to the Website.
Same. 😭 I do love Tribel’s “give me your first born” TOS pic.twitter.com/LtiBQxviZm

“We really have no idea why our former lawyer put that in there, and we should have checked his work more carefully,” Tribel replied after coming under fire.
“We would never ‘sell’ any user posts – whatever that means! We’re political activists!” they added.
Per the revised version, users “irrevocably waive … any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to your Posted Information.”
It’s worth noting that not all celebrities have been in meltdown mode over the Musk Twitter takeover.
“Excited to see what you accomplish here,” retired basketball star Shaquille O’Neill tweeted at Musk on Wednesday ahead of the deal closing.
This feels like “if Donald Trump is President, I’m moving to Canada” circa 2016 all over again. Grab your popcorn!
