Links to several news sources and competing platforms seem to load more slowly on X Twitter.




On X, the social media network formerly known as Twitter, links to some Twitter rivals and news media websites appeare to be throttle or delay for the most of Tuesday.

reporters noted that links posted to X that led to websites including the New York speeds, Reuters, Facebook, Substack, and X rivals Bluesky and Threads took about 5 seconds to load, a noticeable lag from the typically practically instantaneous loading speeds. The issue didn’t seem to affect a lot of other websites, including, the retailer Target, and others.

Users of the tech forum Hacker News were the first to note the delays.

It was unclear why certain URLs took longer than others to load. repeated calls for comment from X went unanswered. Since Musk purchased the website last year and fired the majority of the workforce, it has been beset by technological problems. For some users, the problem appeared to be addressed by Tuesday afternoon.

X employs a link-shortener service, like other platforms, to track visitors who click on links shared on the platform. “This is the clear indicator that there are server-side [at the X-operated shortener] shenanigans going on,” says Dormann when a link for a New York Times article plugged into X’s link-shortener takes significantly longer to load than links from other websites utilizing the same link-shortening service.

X Statement Twitter

In a statement, the New York Times claimed that while it had seen the delay, “we have not received any explanation from the platform about this move.”

Although we are unsure of the reasoning for the implementation of this time delay, we would be worrie by intentional pressure exert on any news organization for unknown reasons.” The mission of The New York Times is to report the news impartially and without bias, and we will continue to make this endeavor in the face of any challenges.

Musk appeared to retaliate on Monday by implying in a series of tweets that he would still turn up to fight at Zuckerberg’s house.

The cofounders of Substack, Chris Best, Hamish McKenzie, and Jairaj Sethi, express their hope that X would reverse the delay, but they also note that In direct response to this type of behavior by social media corporations, Substack was develope.

How San Francisco is being divided by robotaxis




The cab approaches, and I feel a slight increase in my heartbeat. It’s a strange sight, one I didn’t think I’d ever witness in my life.

No one is driving the cab. It pulls to a stop in front of me and offers me the chance to use my phone to unlock the door before escorting me into the night.

But just as I’m ready to enter, a bystander comes over.

He warns me that they are hazardous. He cautions me to exercise caution after witnessing a person almost being ran over by a robotaxi.

Represents a group in San Francisco that opposes robotaxis and feels that the city has approved such a risky experiment that is endangering lives.

Others have taken things a step farther. A advocacy group started disabling the autos throughout the summer by placing cones on their bonnets.
Its work is referre to as “coning” by Safe Street Rebel, and some of its films have gained widespread popularity. However, for the time being, city officials are committe to allowing them to operate on their streets.


The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) decided to approve two taxi services, Waymo and Cruise, operating a 24-hour service on August 10, 2023. They were previously only permitted to run paid rides at night.

However, six hours of public discussion – a conveyor belt of people sharing their hopes and fears – were heard by officials before to that decision.

There were Uber and Lyft drivers concerned that robotaxis would eliminate their means of subsistence: “If you let self-driving taxis grow, it’s going to steal families of their employment. I’m a single mother,” Rosine, an urban Uber driver, declared.

Garbage truck representatives claimed that the cars frequently broke down and blocked their vehicles. The fire department in San Francisco has criticized the autos for the same reason, alleging that it has been blocked 55 times this year.
