    Heh. So Twitter pulled its poison pill cards for nothing. Ah well.

    I love this! Not a fan of Musk but I hate Twitter even more

    I’ll just pull out the popcorn and enjoy the s*** storm from the sidelines

    You should really reconsider that position. Musk is about to make it the right wing social media that others have been trying to make.

    Reposting from the lounge: Need to see what his motives are here. Bit worrying that any individual can control mass media like this. I'd prefer if ownership/control was much more diversified for media companies, with no individuals having a significant holding.

    If that was possible, Jeff Bezos wouldn't have both Amazon and The Washington Post under his thumb right now. He probably wasn't the first to do so, and probably won't be the last, but we'd be hard pressed to have a group controlling mass media as opposed to just one person.

    Should the threatened exodus happen, I feel it will have the same harmful seismic waves shutting down the IMDB boards had on the internet.

    Looks like the deal's agreed now, expected to close in 2022.

    I’m addicted, but the place is a hellhole and is only about to get worse.

    You only have to read his tweets to see what a ****show this is going to be.

    I think Twitter is already a dangerous overrated cesspool but this is going to make it a more dangerous, overrated cesspool controlled by a madman who will almost certainly start abusing his ownership the moment he takes over.

    I'm really curious what the end goal is cause I really doubt he paid 44 billion so the average republican could "finally" have voice.

    Twitter has always been a cesspool but maybe now people will actually leave and we can go back to a time where it didn’t exist? Please.

    Looking forward to the time when the Elon Musk cult discovers his book "To Serve Man" is a cookbook.
