I'm sorry, but I absolutely refuse to entertain the idea that Musk can do anything good. If he is right about something for once, it just means he isn't wrong about it.

Yeah I should clarify I respect his statement, not him for making it. I respect the statement independently of its source 😅

I'm not exactly tripping over myself to give attention to the few times he doesn't make a terrible choice

I'm genuinely impressed. Like I knew he was never the Tony Stark level genius his dumbass cult thought he was but, wow, I didn't think he was this stupid

He's a living, breathing Dilbert cartoon at this point. And he wonders why people opted to leave when given the choice.

Don't even know how to react to any of this anymore, except for "lol" — no, "lmao." "Lmfao", even.

It is also funny how he thinks, that here in the EU writing a mail and then clicking yes to stay and not responding means that you resign.
Shit like this doesn't work here.

Lol yeah. Every HR and legal executive in their Dublin offices would be banging their head against a brick wall. If there were any left.

Twitter seems to be experiencing some issues today, wonder if that's just normal outage or a sign of things to come.

Can some corp save Twitter from Elon Musk, please.
At this point I'd rather have someone just fork the damn thing and use whatever tech wizardry available to pull the whole userbase (well, a few might get lost in the migration, you know how it is ;) ) over to the new service. Call it... idk, Whalesong or w/e

we're giving these silicon valley losers way too much fucking importance

what, an initial response to his twitter poll? as if it might get him back in office?
I mean
Trump is stupid/narcissistic enough to think that social media success could translate into him getting back into office.

It's an argument I've seen even in the midterms, where conservatives who lost are insisting it was a sham because they had bigger twitter numbers than their opponents and therefore more support. Trump himself even used to say he had more support than Biden because his rallies were bigger. They believe public engagement equals votes. Or at least they say they do as a way to boost their "stop the steal" bullshit

But yes, I do agree we're giving these silicon valley losers way too much fucking importance.
 
its happening trump is getting reinstated New

Lol. Using a poll on the platform to make that decision…

Calling it right now. Will be a Twitter merger with/buyout of Truth Social within a year

It is in the best financial interest of Musk to sink (hah) Twitter ASAP. It has never made money and it will be a constant money drain now that he owns it.

Go back to twitter, see the success it gets you lol. Worked a charm the first time didn't it?

I'm reminded of the Bob's Burgers episode where Bob was attacked by a mechanical shark (that he had terrible ideas about and kept making the situation worse) and ends up literally grasping at some straws at a counter.

A significant chunk of his ego around this thing is the insistence that he's representing the will of a people long oppressed, so anything he can do to try and make it look like he's representing the people and not himself, he'll do it. To justify it and pump the ego fuller yet.

Just when I thought the platform couldn't lose money any faster 😅

Imagine buying the most influential political media platform in the world and fucking it up so much in just a few weeks that not even the most controversial person ever wants to come back.

I guarantee Musk is going to be forced to give up twitter by the end of the year or early 2023 at this rate and probably sell it to Big Tech lmao. (Since they're practically the only companies that can afford twitter and be able to understand how it works and reverse everything Musk did lul)

This is too long to screenshot for posterity but definitely worth reading

As snarky as I've been about this whole thing, I actually do very much agree with this thread and am pissed about the blow Musk is dealing to worldwide communication.
