Episode 42: That's a Big Thing You Should've Said

By Zippy the Wonder Snail | Jun 13, 2024 at 11:17 PM

Tim and Jason talk more baseball, why everyone who uses social media should care about “the Fediverse” (especially in light of X’s move toward X-rated content), Taylor Swift’s latest album and the Rich Young Ruler from Luke 18:18-25.

As X Spirals, the Fediverse Awaits

By Timothy R. Butler | Jun 08, 2024 at 2:15 AM

If you’ve read my columns over the last few years, you know I’ve been far less pessimistic about Elon Musk’s Twitter (err, “X”) than many, even when he’s made inexplicable decisions. Officially supporting pornographic publishing on X, though, is a line crossed and a good time to consider the best alternative.

Twitter -- oops, X -- Wins So Far

By Dennis E. Powell | Dec 27, 2023 at 8:08 PM

A year ago last week, having taken steps to preserve my privacy, I started an account on the ubiquitous website that at the time was called Twitter. Much has happened since then, as you may have heard.

X Doesn't Mark the Spot

By Timothy R. Butler | Jul 26, 2023 at 9:42 PM

Twitter has changed its name to “X.” The way that change reverberated from newsrooms to dining rooms was revealing. It shows how dangerously dependent our society has become on this one, privately owned soapbox.

A Threads I Can Follow

By Timothy R. Butler | Jul 05, 2023 at 11:08 PM

Meta has launched another social network, “Threads.” I signed up but already knew when I did that I wouldn’t be an active user. I hope many others will join me in not using it. I also hope it succeeds for the good of the Internet.

Adam Wainwright

No, you don’t understand. I love him. Results don’t matter to me, at this point. OK, they do, but the point is that he’s my favorite pitcher, no matter what. He’s absolutely earned the right to pitch poorly in his final season, and the only thing any halfway decent Cardinals fan should say is, “Oh, well, I guess Waino didn’t have it today.”

Tucker Carlson's Ironic Return

By Timothy R. Butler | May 10, 2023 at 11:37 PM

Tucker Carlson says he’s “back.” His three minute long Twitter video return is a tour de force argument on what’s terribly wrong in the media and the need for free speech. How desperately we need the whole truth and not just controlled bits of it. He’s right, but I’m hardly celebrating, because the setting is so ironic.

Can We Rewind the Clock to a Better Social Media?

By Timothy R. Butler | Feb 08, 2023 at 10:47 PM

I’ve been on Facebook since 2006 and Twitter since 2009. I decidedly don’t quit social networks because I decide this or that moderation policy isn’t leaning in my political direction. But, as of a week ago, I joined the push for a relatively new alternative social network, Mastodon, and I hope you will too.

Episode 31: Musk, Midnights and Midterms

By Zippy the Wonder Snail | Nov 07, 2022 at 1:31 PM

The boys give their take on Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, Taylor Swift’s new album (Midnights) and the midterm elections that take place tomorrow. Plus, encouragement from Romans 13 on how we relate to our politicians, even those we aren’t so sure of.

Episode 24: Year II: The Snail Zips Back

By Zippy the Wonder Snail | Apr 29, 2022 at 7:17 PM

An action packed anniversary episode marks year two of everyone’s favorite gastropod! The boys reflect on stories of the past year, the demise of CNN+, more Musk musings on Twitter and free speech and the impact of Jesus’s teaching of the Beatitudes.
