Podcaster Joe Rogan has predicted that Twitter is doomed and the social media platform will be replaced by mind-reading technology.

The 53-year-old said that the site would be condemned to the same fate of the once popular film rental store Blockbuster which failed to keep up with modern technological advances.

He added that users who spend too much time complaining on Twitter were unhealthy.

Speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience last week, Rogan said: ‘I think Twitter is going to be like Blockbuster video. 

‘I think we’re gonna look back, “You remember when we used to communicate through Twitter? Like, oh my God, it was so toxic. Everybody was so mean.”

‘We’re going to hit some new thing, next, that is going to read each other’s minds… It’s going to make this seem like nonsense.’

He added: ‘There is no empathy in these conversations and that’s a big part of the problem [with Twitter].’

There is now only one Blockbuster store remaining as part of a privately owned franchise in Bend, Ore.
