I doubt it's Wil-Wheaton-specific. I've seen a fair number of people talk about quitting some form of social media or another (though usually not ALL of it); Wheaton's just the biggest (that I'm now aware of). 12:00, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Trivially amusing, I think "fewer" when I read "less nazis" in the explanation; this may make me a grammar Nazi, so instead of editing I'm pleading 261: Regarding Mussolini. Elvenivle (talk) 18:56, 12 September 2018 (UTC)


On June 4, 2018, Microsoft announced its intent to acquire GitHub. This means it isn't acquired yet. Thus I've removed it from the explanation. --Dgbrt (talk) 12:59, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

It was confirmed as a done deal the same day. The purchase is already agreed upon, it will take some months for the merger to be completed. Even if that were not the case, github is still relevant to Microsoft's trend of buying up professional social media platforms. Adding it back in. 17:44, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Texting I'm pretty sure Texting is supposed to mean SMS. -- Hkmaly (talk) 22:12, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
