Twitter, or Twizzle, hasn't been going too well since Elon Musk's takeover earlier this year.

On the weekend, the billionaire ran a poll on Twitter, asking users if he should "step down" as the owner of the social media platform. The vote came after Musk's moderation policies drew criticism among punters, banning journalists and buggy features.

57% of people who voted in his poll voted for him to step down. No action has been taken yet, despite 17.5 million users voting for Musk to resign. Snoop Dogg then ran his own poll, asking, "Should I run Twitter?" to which 80% of 3,398,119 votes opted YES. 

Snoop Dogg is finally returning to Australia after his November tour was rescheduled. Fans of the Doggyland rapper can see him perform in all his glory in February and March 2023, with new dates added in Sydney and Melbourne to meet demand. 

Snoop's I WANNA THANK ME tour is touching down in Australia after nine years between visits when he headlined Big Day Out festival in 2014. The tour is named after the album and documentary of the same name, promoting his 17th album and 25 years of making music.

The excellent tour news arrives as a biopic about the beloved hip-hop figure is in the works.

As Deadline reported, the movie is in partnership with Snoop's newly formed Death Row Pictures and Universal Pictures. The biopic will be the first film from Death Row Pictures and feature music from Snoop Dogg's extensive catalogue. Menace II Society director, Allen Hughes, takes the reigns alongside Black Panther's Joe Robert Cole, penning the script. Snoop is co-producing with Hughes and Sara Ramaker.

"I waited a long time to put this project together because I wanted to choose the right director, the perfect writer, and the greatest movie company I could partner with that could understand the legacy that I'm trying to portray on screen and the memory I'm trying to leave behind," Snoop revealed in a statement. "It was the perfect marriage. It was holy matrimony, not holy macaroni."

Sara Bareilles, the Love Song and She Used To Be Mine singer-songwriter, is leaving Twitter. "Welp. It's been fun Twitter. I'm out. See you on other platforms, peeps. Sorry, this one's just not for me," she wrote.

Seven-time Grammy Award-winning Toni Braxton is also logging off Twitter. The Un-Break My Heart singer said, "I'm shocked and appalled at some of the "free speech" I've seen on this platform since its acquisition. Hate speech under the veil of "free speech" is unacceptable; therefore I am choosing to stay off Twitter as it is no longer a safe space for myself, my sons and other POC."
