So 1 1/2 Oklahoma City bombings, still overall downward trending, but still an increase in cases, just a slowing of the rate of cases as NY passed its wave crest.  The global world graph remains the 45 degree incline it has been since the outset, the virus is not slowing down, it is still accelerating, just the locations of the blooms shifts.

Then there was this . . . “Twitter labels Trump’s tweets with a fact-check for the first time”

Followed instantly by this . . . “Trump threatens to regulate or shut down social media companies”

I say “About fucking time already!” to Twitter, not Trump.
From fucking Twitter (I do not twitter because I am not a fucking twit or a bird) “Violence: You may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people. We also prohibit the glorification of violence.”

I say “WTF do you call threatening nuclear war?”

“Terrorism/violent extremism: You may not threaten or promote terrorism or violent extremism.”

WTF do you call calls to ‘my second amendment guys’ to ‘liberate”?

“Abuse/harassment: You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. This includes wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm.”

WTF do you call calling for, as POTUS, on Twitter, an investigation into a decades old death long ago resolved, targeted and implying  the dead persons former boss had some hand in their demise?

“Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease”

WTF do you call the Trump twitter response to Charlottesville? The reality is that Trump has, and continues to violate the rules of twitter conduct daily, but they fear him screaming about his first amendment, which would not be restricted if twitter blocked or banned him (which they did not), it would do the same thing that all others who abuse social media platforms get, the platform is not public free speech, it is a business allowing you to speak on their platform via their rules, which you violated. Just call him the Snowflake in Chief, for once treated like the rest of humanity and he has a fit like a child.

Maine infected                                 2,109                     2,137

Maine Dead                                       79                           81

Whilst I isolated and worked on this, 1 more of my fellow Mainers died from C-19.
