So, Twitter decided to do a bit of spring cleaning and get rid of most of its staff, including the moderators. And boy, did chaos ensue! One Twitter account, “vids that go hard” with over a million followers, illegally posted the entire Super Mario Bros. Movie – you know, the one that’s still in theaters and has already made over a billion dollars – on the platform.
Despite the obvious copyright violation, the movie remained online for seven hours, racking up 9 million views and counting. And the best part? Twitter Blue subscribers can now upload hour-long, high-quality videos, making piracy a breeze! Hooray for progress!
Of course, Twitter eventually woke up from its nap and deleted the video, but the “vids that go hard” account remains unscathed. Neo-Twitter is truly a strange and apocalyptic place. Who knows what kind of madness we’ll witness next?

As for the Super Mario Bros. Movie, it’s still raking in the dough at the box office. Will it break into the top 20, or even the top 10 of the highest-grossing movies of all time? Who knows, but it’s definitely giving the Avengers, Avatar and Star Wars a run for their money.
