Just so you know, the video appears as private.
Can't be watched here, and can't be watched in YT either without signing in in YT, which I don't lately.

Yes, I had to reupload. If you follow me on Twitter you'd know.

Not everyone uses Twitter and if you don't sign on you don't seem to get the latest. From what I hear the number of people who tweet on twitter is declining. Not sure what one does  on X, Xcrete maybe.

Xitter, as in Shitter, which is what it's become since Musk took it over.

Twitter/X is demonstrably better in almost every regard since Musk took over.

I don't know if you have another Twitter then I have over here.
But Twitter is flooded with spam bots & nazis over here.

I am curious what's happening with the EU-lawsuite about false information ends.
And that Elon refuses to remove hate speach and the like will be much drama in near future too.

Call a Nazi anyone you don't like. People like you made this word absolutely meaningless. As of bots, even before Elon Twitter was full of bots, and this problem is not Twitter exclusive.

Fact check: Opening investigation is not a lawsuit. You just posted false information. Thus shall be banned, I guess. It's a slippery slope towards ministry of truth and dictatorship. Also I've seen a good argument this EU bullshit being in violation of UN Human Rights article 19. https://www.un.org/en/about-us/universal-declaration-of-human-rights#:~:text=Article%2019,media%20and%20regardless%20of%20frontiers.

Twitter was a cesspool before Musk took over. It may be different now, but it couldn't be worse.

So, you are the one calling names here, and you think he's the asshole?
You jump to insults for what?  Because of a different opinion than yours?

Your behavior is absurd.  You have been brainwashed.  Mind conditioned to become violent.  And you don't seem to be aware of that, not even a bit.  :-\

This is disrespectful to the forum Host. If you do not like the Host be a man and just leave. I take your Buhbye as you being a man. Who is the asshole here.

Twitter now has:
- Monestisation for creators
- Subscriptions feature
- Community Notes (arguably the greatest feature in the history of social media)
- No political banning and influence/outright control and hence way greater free speech
- No more child porn (can't verify that myself obviously, but that's the claim, musk fixed it in a day)
- Communities feature
- No more Blue Tick apartheid system
- Two factor authentication
- Way more transparency in how it works

And the list goes.
There was more innovation in 6 months of Musk taking over than in the entire lifetime of the old Twitter.
And I'm an "arsehole" for thinkng these things made an improvement?

Watching this interview of Musk, I'm not clear how anyone can not realise the guy is a fuckwit, and that X/twitter, whatever you want to call it, is about to go under because Musk likes to posture and insult people.

IMHO it's what should have been said a long time ago but nobody had a pair to do so. Advertisers ganging up in concerted way to regulate speech is plain wrong. Their job is to advertise their products and stay out of the platform policies and especially politics, not the other way around.  Not the first time it happened either, remember Youtube adpocalypse that made it bend over and change for the worse?
Here is a 7 year old Reddit comment that summed it up pretty well:
Quote
My issue with this whole thing is that Ads in the online space are not targeted to content as much as users. With TV, you can only point at a large group based on past information to target advertising. So the show and the Ad content end up living close together as the network sells content.
On youtube though, the Advertising is, in theory, targeted to the user, based on all the rest of the info that Google already has, so really if everything is working, you should be shown ads that are more relevant to you as a user, not the video as a content type.
If you look at it that way, it seems that companies that are complaining are really whining that their ads are being shown to appropriate customers who ALSO are watching questionable content.

I already won a $100 bet from Chris Gammell who bet that Twitter would go under or collapse.
I'll make that bet again.

In the end Twitter et al are about making money from advertisements. If people think there is something like free speech or uncolored information sharing going on, they are deeply mistaken. Personally I don't care about twitter (and similar) at all. It is just like watching raw sewage flowing into the ocean. I rather get my information from more balanced sources like a good newspaper.

Then too bad, you don't get to find out updates like that.
Where else am I supposed to put it? On the forum? Where? Youtube Community Tab where everyone would complain they get notified of every post?
X/Twitter is the social media platform of choice, everything else sucks. If you want to follow me, I post there multiple times daily. If not that's fine, but don't complain that you miss stuff.
I also post my videos natively on there as well, so you don't have to leave the platform to watch my content, comment, and follow my every update and thought.

With all due respect - no thanks.
I understand Twitter/X provides you another monetization source, and a convenient way to do that.
But I'm not interested in that platform - I'm targeted enough, and I'm not addicted to hanging on your every word either.  I appreciate your platform, particularly the forum and the comraderie of other engineers here - but I'm not interested in following anybody in the first place, much less putting up with yet more targeted ads & other 'noise' that others here have pointed out.

You are right. Its all about advertising. This is why we need to take note of adverts, and refuse to buy anything from an advertiser acting politically. Only buy from people who focus solely on the goods and services you want. That's how you will get the good stuff.

No due respect needed, I don't care whether or not anyone choses to follow me on Twitter or not, entirely your choice for whatever reason you choose. I'm just pointing out it's the only place that I do updates like that. Some Youtubers like Louis Rossmann and Fran do updates on the Community tab of Youtube, but I got too many complaints that they got alerted in the same way as for a video, and that sucked for them.

I get that Dave’s response was a bit harsh and could be read as “either do as I want or get lost”, if no further details were provided. But, when you answered, these were already present. So, trying to approach this constructively, what is the goal of your post and where is the problem, exactly?

I can imagine four cases. Correct me, if I missed something.

Case I: you’re already in Alphabet’s inventory. If yes, what’s the problem of being in X’s? Just waive your rights once more.

Case II: you avoid being in Alphabet’s inventory by, speaking euphemistically, using alternative access routes. Then… do the same for X?

Case III: nobody’s perfect and you happened to already be in Alphabet’s inventory, but wish to still limit the problem in general. The solution seems the same as in case II.

Case IV: your worry is the mere concept of the communication method promoted by X and you wish to avoid this. Right, that makes sense. But how would Dave post that kind of information, so it was noticed and wouldn’t require him to go and manually type things on every platform EEVblog is present at? Be reasonable, he is a human too. And don’t point to the hypothetical use of a program, that disperses messages to multiple platforms, unless you can point to one that can be trusted, works on all gear Dave uses, and can be setup easily by a person with no relevant skills.

I suppose the only thing I could complain about here, is that Dave could skip the “if you follow me on Twitter you'd know.”

It’s also worth noting, that there is an official blog entry, which also contains a direct download link. And Dave is posting to platforms other than YouTube. None of these were affected, if I understand correctly.

The problem is the same one that plauges every Youtuber/creator, everyone wants something different, EVERYONE.
Not only in type and style of content, but also in this case, updates.
Some want updates and my every throught on Youtube Communities, some hate it and just want me to STFU and make videos, some don't care.
Repeat the above sentence for every other platform I'm on: website, forum, Twitter, Facebook, Odysee, Rumble etc

The best any creator can do is do what they enjoy doing, and how they enjoy doing it, and people can either follow along, or not.
I enjoy Twitter, it's why I use it.

Hey, allow me to explain -

-I occasionally enjoy your videos, and I appreciate the forum and the body of knowledge it holds, by the contribution of the members.
I'm drawn to it often.

But the thought of interaction on popular social media in general repulses me. I'm not much of a follower, so I don't see the draw of Twitter/X (I'm also not of Facebook, and I've never even heard of Odysee or Rumble).

You had (helpfully) mentioned where else we could find your font of enthusiasm for science & electronics, and I (maybe mistakenly?) thought it was a safe place to voice my opinion, and maybe a few others might share that opinion.
-now I know better.

I didn't mean by my reaction that I have any expectations from you whatsoever!
I really DO understand that you get more eyeballs & therefore revenue if you post to more platforms - and I genuinely support your decision to do that.
And I can appreciate you posting where else we can all find you- honestly.

-my post was never meant as an argument, and I apologize if it came across that way.

I earn practially nothing from Twitter. If anything I lose money by spreading my content around different platforms.
I use it because I have been using it for 14years and I like it, and because I want to support the only free speech platform left.

What's wrong with pointing out that I have mentioned something on Twitter before? Perhaps it will encourage a few people to follow me thier who didn't know I had a twitter account?
Or is it "the tone"?

Correct. I have been posting all my videos on my blog webiste since day one. And every video is also directly hosted on my own website in 720p format.

Like I asked before, tell me where you want me to post my updates. "Not at all" is an acceptable answer, but don't complain when I do post somewhere where other people want me to post.
