Remember: I'm trans/non-binary.  There is a very real concern that as
hostile to folks like me as Twitter already is, that Musk makes it even
_more_ hostile.

Hopefully it does go nowhere. Musk buying twitter may finally make it
more balanced. Now is the time to support twitter and start tweeting
more about VCF and our events and equipment.
I'm personally fascinated by all the new revelations and misgivings
about twitter _all of a sudden_. All of a sudden twitter is some
horrible thing that will silence people - it's been doing that for
years. If anything there will be less silence.
Democracy dies in silence.
