Without Twitter, where would all of Farks greenlit links come from?

I'd rather buy Mos Eisley

I've had mastodon accounts for years now, so whatever. I just worry that I have insufficient popcorn supplies.

I'm just looking forward to the end of this thing so people will just shut up about it.

What would be the point?  It'd just be replaced by another thing that looked and worked exactly like Twitter.  And lead toward even more balkanization of public opinion thereby.  I'm sure that's totally not an intended side effect or anything, gorsh no

You don't really know how today's sensationalist news cycle works do you?

It. Never. Stops.

It isn't the users that have to make it count.  It is the warriors for Light and Love that have access to the the systems.  Now, I am not advocating, but if the value Our Democracy they must delete everything they can.  User data and posts.  Internal documentation.  Ip addresses.  Yes it might get them in trouble.  But MLK Jr.  Spent time in jail.  Sometimes the right thing is illegal.

Is Twitter really "content"? I guess the bar for what constitutes content has gotten pretty low..

Press releases and the musing of anonymous doofuses...

I think part of the appeal is the idea that this will financially harm Musk (greatly)....his financing backs out, and the court liquidates his assets to satisfy the obligation.

Hell, I'd watch that show.

Fark is rantings, not musings, of doofuses.

Doofi? Is doofus latin?

Twitter shouldn't drop the case. When Musk completes acquisition the case simply becomes moot. If his recent BS is a ploy to escape the contract it won't work. Only an idiot would take his word for it and drop the case now.

"The Twitter lawyers added that Musk's 'proposal is an invitation to further mischief and delay.'"

Yep.  Musk has a pretty clear and well documented pattern of behavior regarding making promises and then not following through on them.  How anyone falls for Musk's BS these days I'll never know.

It's all a delay tactic - absolutely no coincidence that this offer was dropped days before Musk was scheduled to be deposed.

Musk doesn't want this deal to go through. He's smart enough to know that Twitter has become a legacy social media platform, that it's never going to earn enough to justify the cost.

He's not smart.  He ran his yap too much to show off for his fanbois and trapped himself in a corner.  I'm surprised he hasn't called the people at Twitter "pedophiles" yet.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Still don't think he'll buy it. He's a king weasel and he'll squirm free.


I'm curious how he will. All of his financial backers have pulled out. And since Musk has like 10 kids, it's clear he has no clue how to farking pull out himself.

It's lovely to watch the consequence of hubris so publically. Musk rat seems to believe everyone is as stupid as he thinks they are.i mean, most of us sure.

But the lawyers representing Twitter for a case worth this much? Hahaha!

"Persuasive". That's a new term for it...
