The right isn't getting any special treatment with Twitter Blue. #blocktheblue movement won't change that. It's time to stop suppressing those on the left who want to be heard. Understand what #TwitterBlue gives subscribers and what it doesn't. 
In this episode, we discuss the recent introduction of Twitter Blue, a paid subscription service that offers users additional features such as an undo button, bookmark folders, and more.

In this episode of Richardson's Rubicon Pod, I discussed various topics surrounding Twitter Blue, including its features, the recent removal of Blue Tick badges from legacy Verified accounts, and my personal experience with the subscription. I also shared my background as a gaming content creator and podcaster, as well as my decision to repurpose my Twitter account for political commentary and launch a new podcast under my real identity.
Throughout the episode, I shared my thoughts on the controversy surrounding paid verification through the Blue Tick, and how Twitter could have handled it differently to avoid upsetting its users. I also discussed the importance of having diverse perspectives on the platform, and how blocking users based on their political beliefs could lead to an echo chamber.
Overall, this episode tackled a range of interesting and relevant topics that are worth discussing in the ever-changing landscape of social media.

I tweeted this for feedback:

And that is what finally triggered this episode. It's a classic case of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Idiocy.

“I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.”
