Couple of things in response to the people saying a) that we should use other platforms, and b) that they have few followers on Twitter. Point a) first:

The other platforms have their place, and they're super useful if you're a creative person looking to build a platform, especially if your content leans to the right of Mao. But for our purposes here they are, as Karl has pointed out, worthless. This is because all the people are still on Twatter, and the people they engage with are on Twatter as well. You go where the audience is, and unfortunately most people ended up on Twatter before there were any alternatives, so it's become simple habit.

This video gives a good insight into the problem:



Now for point b):

I'll put this clearly: it doesn't matter if you don't have many followers. That's only an issue for narcissists who get off on likes and seeing their follower count go up, and for people in the above category who are looking to build a platform (and even then, follower count still doesn't matter, QUALITY of followers does). For our purposes, it is a non-issue.

Another little thing to be aware of: simply putting a link out with a couple of hashtags isn't going to do much to help. You need to ENGAGE with people, that's the whole point of 'social' media. Let's go over the basic action plan for engaging with our targets for this exercise: MORONS. Yes, you want to engage the idiots. No, I'm not joking.

Now for the important part: YOU ARE NOT TRYING TO CHANGE THE IDIOT'S MIND. You will fail, and it won't be productive either because there's a high likelihood you'll get into a pissing match and you'll BOTH be made to look foolish. That helps no one.

No, what we're trying to do here is convince the fence sitters, the people who haven't decided yet, and that is the ultimate purpose to engaging with idiots. This is what you do:

1. Find an idiot on Twatter. This shouldn't take long. Utilise the search function and plug in terms like 'vaccine hesitancy' or whatever else you want to talk about (you can also click the trending hashtags for instant stupidity). Remember that we're building traffic for Karl, so make sure whatever you search for is relevant to the topic of his ticker.

2. Scroll through the results until you find an idiot talking about something stupid that you have knowledge of. Now ENGAGE with them. Be calm, be reasonable, be rational. Let them be an idiot! You WANT them to be an idiot. Ideally you want someone who already has some people engaging in the thread, just to be sure it has some traction.

3. Assuming they don't block you outright (and they might), keep engaging. Post facts and figures, remain calm, and link to Karl's post. Hashtags are also fine as it'll add a bit more visibility.

4. DO NOT RISE TO ANY BAIT. They will antagonise you, they will call you names, they will scream that you're a bigot, an ist, and a phobe. IGNORE IT, the ravings of morons aren't your concern.

5. Keep plugging away at them and other idiots like this until you get banned or they block you.

What you're doing here is providing a show for the various people who are silently watching the thread without directly engaging themselves. Those are the people whose minds you are trying to sway. Hence why you need to remain calm and stick to facts and figures without resorting to name calling. Though a little humour doesn't go amiss, just don't make it overtly insulting, as you might also******off some of those silent spectators whose minds you're trying to change.

The idiot will be frustrated by your unwillingness to take the bait and is likely to escalate to the stars and beyond. Their mouth-frothing insanity will push the fence sitters away and toward YOUR side of reasonable discussion and facts, and with luck they'll click your link to learn more. That is what we want.

But even if you don't sway them enough to change their mind completely this time, you've probably convinced them that the other side is ****ing stupid, and that still counts as a win. The more you can trigger the moron who started the thread, the better.

And the best part of all is that you get some great entertainment for free as you watch the idiot melt down :)

I've been sharing your articles on Facebook and Twitter for years now. I will continue to do so and use some of the tips others have shared on how to get them seen by more eyeballs.

This place is the only place of reason and sanity that I can find anywhere. I will sorely miss it if it's gone, but can understand your frustration Karl.

Twitter banned me for a month for referring people to Karl's posts on Ivermectin. I tried to do the same thing last night and Twitter immediately suspended my account again for "suspicious activity" which I can't reverse without giving them a phone number which I will not do unless I get another burner phone. I'm already on thin ice with Twitter and the immediate suspension for referring to KD's account is proof of that.

Just my $0.02 on how Twitter can get nasty if you get on their radar. I want to help so I'll figure out another way to get back in the fight.

Nooo...please don't drop your /NAD website!! I came across your website when someone on one of an automotive forum posted a link to this website recently which is now one of my favorite thanks to your valuable analysis of the whole debacle (political and medical). I do not use any social media platform but do let others know of your website by word of mouth.

@tickerguy at this point you are almost my single point of information. I have used your information to speak at my school board. I would be lost without you. I will do everything to spread your word. Can you start a substack so we can support you? Whatever you decide I would like to thank you now for all the work you have done. Thank you so much!

Folks,

When you are sharing Tickers on social media, click on the title of said Ticker until the URL says single post. Otherwise the link won't go to the right Ticker.

No no no @Shadowmask

If the browser's address says "akcs-www?post=xxxxxx" (the word POST is the important one) and there is no "&" after it (e.g. no &ord=.....) you're good.

SINGLEPOST is ok too BUT it will not include the discussion - just the ticker itself, with a clickable link at the bottom to get the discussion as well.

If you're on the TOP PAGE (where it displays multiple Tickers) a RIGHT CLICK on the title will give you the correct URL if you "copy link."

Radiosity is suggesting doing on Twitter what I have long done on Facebook: engage, be polite and get "fence sitters" (who I've called lurkers) interested in the discussion. We are educating THEM, as the person with whom you argue is generally uneducable.

I posted it in the open thread this morning along with a comment that you'd increased your ability to handle traffic and thought it should be ok now. (Or something to that effect.)

I'll be posting them there every morning now.

Made an account to post here as I've just been lurking. I discovered this site a few weeks ago and it's been added to my everyday list for all the invaluable commentary and resources here. This site and the commenters already provided me the motivation and know-how to pursue a religious exemption from the so-called "vaccines" which are now mandated in my workplace. I don't use traditional social media anymore, but will spread these posts through email and discord. Thank you for all you do Karl.

@Radiosity, great tips. Here is a link for some other tips, formatting, place a link to tickerforum url in profile, add images, etc.

https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?singl....

Here is a secret to get extra views and have people look at your profile.

Find a 'hot thread' with lots of replies and lots of retweets. Look down the list and see who has a sensible reply but maybe doesn't get any favorite votes. Mention those people in a retweet of that same thread.

They will see they were mentioned in a thread that nobody (but you) upvoted them for. You were the one who listened so perhaps you'll get someone listen to you in return.

Since starting this campaign, I only have 18 original tweets and maybe 2 dozen replies to others tweets and I have a lot of views.

I am using the lefts own buzzwords back on them. Not showing my stripes till I've lured them in. #maskup #vaccinated #equitable, etc...

I mix it up and don't post all tickerforum tweets, but i usually circle back.

"Temporarily suspended" ... For threats? Not sure how that figures, but I can't even get back in because they're requiring a mobile phone number but says mine is unsupported.

Oh well.

Yeah, it shows up rather quickly on my monitoring screen.

So do the DOS attempts, one of which we just repelled and which was sourced from a most-interesting place.

Nope.

The underlying OS is quite resistant to those (I've yet to run into one that actually prevents me from signing on; it may run slow, but I can get in) and the AKCS code gets VERY aggressive about dropping a piano on the abusive endpoint if whatever is being done actually generates requests once it figures out that they're not legitimate attempts by a human to read or post something.
