    Still wouldn't solve the problem of not having advertisers.

    The court and regulatory systems we have are hardly quick. It has been a month. A very, very long month, sure. But still, only a month

    What a hilarious threat. If there was actual money in him for it, he'd have done it already.

    I can't help but wonder how much cheaper it would have been for him to get the Gab/Parler type userbase he's clearly after by just... buying Gab or Parler.

    He pursued Twitter over the others because he’s a terminally online clout chasing fool who wants to ‘own the libs’.

    Another money-losing mega-project. Tesla investors are tearing their hair out every day with how he is self destructing.

    If Elon destroys Twitter completely, it would be the best thing he has ever done in his career. Twitter was/is a cesspool.

    Twitter, while far from perfect, is a place where a lot of good people pursue a voice for many reasons. You want to eliminate an outlet for young members of the LGBTQIA+? Artists? Why?

    If your answer is eliminate any problematic element, you might as well blow up the planet. Because they are everywhere.

    I really do think Musk must be bi-polar at least, maybe even schizophrenic and listening to the voices at worst.

    Lets not project actual mental disorders onto the man. His problem is he's rich. Raised as a "South Afircan boy", according to his emerald mine owning father. Who, btw, had a kid with his stepdaughter, if you want any more indication of the type of man who raised Elon. Elon nearly died when he made fun of a classmate's father's suicide.

    Sort of like Tumblr, only there will always be somewhere else for them to go. Unfortunately it's almost certainly going to have right wingers there and ineffective moderating and banning of trolling and dangerous MAGAs.

    Maybe Mastadon is the next thing. Or maybe something else. Almost anything is going to be better eventually. Clinging to Twitter because it already exists isn't enough. Especially not when you have king troll Musk running it into the ground.

    Note: Musk regularly reposts other people's jokes as his own.



    Elon Musk: "They’re bots in human form [for reposting quotes]" "Note, spamming, whether done by a set of humans or bots is against ToS [so they get banned or deleted from Twitter]"

    [​IMG]

    The fragile manchild who lives in a bubble can't handle any criticism at all. He's saying popularly copied quotes that he doesn't like now gets you banned/deleted from Twitter. People should just bail out of having an account on a platform run by this weirdo. The only rules he runs his platform by really are whatever today's whims happen to be.
