i would like to remind you again

‘blue hellsite’ is not a descriptive term for use in a CW

theyʼre ALL blue

@onethousandtwentyfour the azure hellsite, the cobalt hellsite, and the ultramarine hellsite

@onethousandtwentyfour is 'hellsite' used in places other than tumblr? I always thought of it as local to the special experience there

@wednesday i first encountered 'hellsite' in reference to Twitter during the 2016 US Presidential elections and i've definitely seen it refer to Reddit too (although reddit is usually "orange hellsite")

some instances even have a "hellbird" emoji for twitter lol

@onethousandtwentyfour i may have seen it used for tumblr as far back as 2012 or 13. We need a pop culture historian :birdsite: i wonder if searching for frequency in search terms would tired any answers about its origins

@onethousandtwentyfour "Come on it's the blue one with awful people and bad takes and terrible UX and moderation. YOU KNOW, *THAT* ONE!!"
