The dating game

 It's funny to use dating apps. Especially for a problem old like the time.

Dating is a big issue for a lot of people, especially expats who travel a lot.

You don't know many new eligible people and you, of course, try many options.

However, during my research, I can see that many people end up being frustrated.

One reason for that is the over-promise of all the apps. Your expectations might be extremely high, but let's face it, swiping in someone's artificial pictures provides you a vague idea of what kind of person they are.

Also, another thing providing higher difficulties are all those spam bots, or scam bots. Spam bots are annoying, the dangerous one are the scam bots.

Those scam bots try to pretend they are real people and try to sell you something, like investing all your money in crypto.

Dating is a difficult game, so if you are not ready to play it, better give up early before you become bitter and upset or even lose money.

To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
