Always presumed it was to condense whatever he's saying to fit into a tweet

Many other celebs can fit things into tweets with no problems. Or even spread their message over another additional tweet if needed.

Just a friendly reminder:  

With any other band, it might mean "Hey we know the fans are talking about new music. And where's there's smoke, there's fire" meaning that new music is on the way.  With GNR, it probably just me

Well, well, well...

He has made tweet threads other times, so he knows how to do it. I think he probably hasn't learned to type fast when he's on his phone and that's why he uses these hard to read abbreviations.

He's just using it for the sake of style. To be different. I don't know, he even specified that Riad would use "'N" instead of the regular "and" on the tracklist. 

I think he uses an anonymous account for his regular Twitter timeline though. How can someone use Twitter for this long while following no one? He just randomly search for the news on the Moments tab?

Yes, the 'n' seems to be a choice for style' sake. He's been using it everywhere, even in the forum chats I think, when he typed longer text. Some other abbreviations as well, like "w/" (with). But the numbers and the "u"/"ur" are maybe a way to type faster and his text messages on the phone probably look like his tweets/

And it's very likely he has an alt account on twitter that he uses to follow people. Maybe the cat account is him, after all :lol:

So that means he def turned off his autocorrection on his iPhone keyboard hahaha.

I think Axl doesn't text much these days, but rather send 7 min audio messages rambling about whatever. Just like my mom. :P

Does the cat account follow anyone from the Democrats party? lol

Ive always thought its fernando just typing in a abbreviated way what axl is saying........like shorthand typing.

just checked there out of curiosity, 277/280 characters. Not sure why doesn't do two-part tweets, would make it a bit clearer to read

Why would he need Fernando to tweet for him? Is he that dependent?

idk, if it's something "to be proud of", isn't it common sense for everybody with more than 2 brain cells to stand against racism !?

btw the drawing is made by meegans daughter

Yep you could be right:shrugs:

 

Gosh great drawing by Meagans daughter.

 

By the way is it mandatory to be angry when you come on this site,,,I got a right earful earlier due to not having heard of a particular band, made me laugh!

I saw it, how dare are you not to know Blink182:P don't worry about it;)

and btw, i'm not angry!

My answer, has only clarified, that I assume them to be 100% against racism, and therefore there is no need (for me) to be proud of their social media posts.

I am proud of something that turns out to be unexpectedly good, but in this case it is NOT unexpected.
It's absolutely what everyone expected from Slash and everybody else in the band, and hopefully everyone on here (including me) is totally behind that attitude against racism.

some do really not get what #blackouttuesday & #theshowmustbepaused is about.

But to write a explanation for those, is not worth the typing.
