News Sky News : Elon Musk turns up at Twitter HQ carrying a sink as takeover nears completion

Artists are so much the nucleus of why I'm on Twitter and many depend on aggregate sites like linktree that this is probably the beginning of the end.

I'll make a mastodon tonight probably once I'm home; and I still have tumblr.

The schadenfreude of Twitter about to basically go bankrupt at this rate is gonna be sweet, fucking Elon lmao :D

But even if it does go bankrupt, Twitter will still likely not die. Stated a few times before but if it does go bankrupt, Big Tech may likely buy it out and salvage it while undoing everything Elon did since they actually would still have use for twitter for various reasons.

And ngl, twitter still does have its uses so in my POV, it would be best to keep it alive. But first kill it off before reviving it.

Tempted to make a Parler account just to advertise it on Twitter to prove a point

But that would only work if I made a Parler account, which I won't

You don’t have to go that far lol. Cohost isn’t in there for example. I saw someone posted their Imgur account lol.

Elon put up a poll asking if he should step down as CEO lmao. Voted yes ofc but also ofc wont believe him :>
Let's see if this plays out like the last time where he kept recreating polls until he got the desired outcome 😂

If anyone had tried to pick this up at the start of November a couple weeks after he took over, they'd be out $40/share now 😂

Take it away Tom

Ofc I voted yes, but this sounds like he’s bored of Twitter and just looking for an out while still maintaining some semblance of “dignity“, and I use that word VERY loosely in this case.

Well this was another dumb day in Elon land. Didn’t post it was partially rolled back earlier, now it is completely reversed.

At least we all hurt his feelings and publicly embarrassed this loser again :)
Imagine intentionally putting yourself in a situation where you're going to have to rationalize why people wanted to vote 8+ million times to say they don't like you. He can call it bots all he wants it's got to be tearing him up inside lmfao

Someone pointed out, the best part of him switching to that method is if it still shows participant number results we can see exactly how few losers are playing for Twitter Blue and we’ll have new grounds to make fun of him again lol.
Yeah if he swaps to making it blue-only, not only will there be embarrassingly low participation, but if he wants to blame the first poll on bots he'll be essentially admitting he thinks his site is 99% bots and that all the previous polls were invalid. Not that any of his fans will care, but it'll probably get him clowned on even more by all the journalists he tried to ban.

"Skin in the game" :rolleyes: How in the ever loving fuck does paying $8 a month give you "skin in the game". Last time I checked you're not buying stock, getting dividends, entering a profit-sharing agreement etc. You're just another part of the product but you were gullible enough to pay for an "Look at me! I'm special!" sticker. 🤮

And before anyone points out this is a hypocritical because I've got a "Contributor" stamp here: I don't expect my opinion to have any more weight than any other member here, nor do I expect any sort of special privilege in exchange for a financial contribution.

What happens if not enough blue checkmarks don't vote in favor of retaining him?

Some of it is helped by how overvalued it was, but yeah it's been basically free-falling since October :'D Hence the board really really wanting him off Twitter.

The part where earlier today he started replying to worried Tesla investors on Twitter by calling them stupid also isn't helping.

I should be surprised the tweet is still up, and yet.

Originally I was keeping an eye on things mostly in a "know your enemy" kind of way (and also because I needed to figure how the fuck to navigate stuff on my accounts) but it's really such a bizarre trainwreck it's impossible to look away from even while it's causing active problems for me.

I wonder what’s more demoralizing for Elon:

getting booed by (presumably) well-off tech bros at a comedy show and realizing he’s not even popular among his perceived fan base

or

the growing realization that when he’s gone he will have failed at all the things he thought he would achieve. He won’t live forever. He won’t go to Mars. And he can’t even leave a legacy behind because all his kids hate him.
