Musk is going to back whoever he thinks can dig him out of the Twitter debt hole. I'm sure he's looking at the numbers and figuring Twitter's old business model wasn't going to make enough money, so now he's trying the hail-Mary of running a right wing grift.

Musk also said on Friday night that he was "fine with Trump not tweeting" after having his account reinstated last weekend. "The important thing is that Twitter correct a grave mistake in banning his account, despite no violation of the law or terms of service. Deplatforming a sitting president undermined public trust in Twitter for half of America."

Last time I checked, instigating a violent insurrection against the U.S. government is a felony.
Could be wrong... But pretty sure I'm not.
...
Elon is a clear and present danger to democracy. This is no longer something we can ignore. He is intentionally attacking the pillars of democracy.
But why is he doing it?

Because this is how he runs his companies. He is the strong, all-knowing CEO, everyone below him bows to his opinions. Nobody questions his ideas.

Just like dolt45, and many others on the republican side. He believes in governance via dictation.
And we all know how that turnips...

He really has no choice but to back a fascist since the Democrats disappoint him.  Really we're making him do it.

Clearly he's ticked off that Trump hasn't triumphantly returned to the company he paid $46B for. What a tool.

Incoming ragepoop tweet from TFG in 3...2...  Oh wait. Troof Antisocial rant in...b ah, I can't keep up. Who cares, Donnie's a has been and he will try to lie, cheat and steal his way to the Republican nomination, and when it looks like he won't get it, he's gonna go nutso and run third party while tearing the Republican party to the ground with lawsuits, fraud allegations, and stochastic terrorism.

Hey, you know what? We can actually ignore Twitter. Elon Musk doesn't seem to understand that this is an option because he is addicted to Twitter. We can really ignore his stupid poop! Let's go

Not sure about the headline, admins. Trump is actually making a run for a 2nd presidency (2.0). This says Elon is backing Desantis

Trump is holding off until Musk agrees to pay him to use the account. Musk is bulking at the price and thinks saying he backs DeSantis will goad Trump. It might, it might not. A pox on both their houses.

WTF is going on here? I obviously should have scanned the thread.

Lsherm: I'm sure he's looking at the numbers and figuring Twitter's old business model wasn't going to make enough money, so now he's trying the hail-Mary of running a right wing grift.


Instead of $8/m for verified status, he should have made it
- $100/m for individuals
- $1,000/m for celebrities/influencers
- $10,000/m for corporations and governments

It would become just another "cost of doing business" and he could have avoided the mass exodus of Advertisers.  But he's an idiot

#BurnTwitter -- start putting a bunch of random crap, even code, especially code. They have maybe 5 people who care. Break it. It can be broken and then burned. I've started the hashtag. Be one with me.

/ #BurnTwitter.

He's even dumber than I thought.

No way he could charge those prices, but I've always maintained Twitter is just a free mechanism for advertising for its users. Journalists and celebrities use it, wannabes attach themselves to those accounts, and everyone thinks they're going to get famous for free.

The government is "investigating" his control over the company because some agencies have, against all wisdom or any level of intelligence, used it as an emergency broadcast system. In no proper world should that happen. Twitter is, was, and will always be a private company. If the US government is using it as a tool for emergency situations, then the US government farked up.

People are pissed that Twitter is getting ruined, but anyone living in the US should be outraged that any emergency plan is dependent on a private company. If the government has to take over Twitter, then that means our government has failed. Spectacularly.

I predict the title in 2024 will read, "Former Billionaire Elon Musk..."

Musk trying to tell people he's a centrist lol

"I'm neither left nor right! I'm just concerned about all this diversity woke stuff."

Yeah right... You ain't fooling me, bub.
 
2022-11-26 3:27:56 AM  
Watching him flail is a pleasure.  There's no starry-eyed idealists willing to put up with your bullshiat to reach the heavens in this sector, Muskrat.  You gambled and you lost.

Balking.
The word is balking.
If Elon were bulking at anything he'd have a different physique
 
2022-11-26 4:16:52 AM  
Lol he's gonna be broke by then at the rate he's burning his net worth.

Already down by around half, over $100,000,000,000!!!
 
2022-11-26 4:22:40 AM  
DNRTFA...

I'm assuming Elon feels spurned after wasting 44bil just so The Fat Guy could vent his syphilitic spleen all over the world again.

Narcissist on narcissist violence is so tragic amusing.

He is still going to die with a net worth that is greater than the combined net worth of everyone who posted in this thread.

So in other words, the "mean demmycrats force me to hate them" people here might actually be real?

That's possibly scarier than them being Russian bots.

The Florida governor won a landslide in this month's midterm elections, while Trump was criticised for the Republicans' failure to deliver the much-promised "red wave" after the defeat of key candidates he endorsed.

/Yeah, but the candidates who Trump endorsed only lost because they were absolutely crazy.
//But then again, Trump only endorsed them because they were absolutely crazy...

Awww, ol' Musky is sad that Trump won't help him by Tweeting. It would be a shame if these two shiatstains got into a beef where they sent their respective cults after each other.

He actually probably prefers DeSantis.

Elon is a rich racist who hates trans people. While Donald is just as racist he doesn't hate the trans community like Elon. Sure, he'd send them to camps in an instance since his followers want him to, but he'd do the same to ginger people if he gets adoration for it.  

DeSantis hates like Elon hates, I can see this being the start of a beautiful friendship.
 
2022-11-26 5:41:19 AM  
I bet when Elon reinstated his account, he thought Tru** would come raging back through his platform and drive the nightly news for a while.

The fact that Trumplethinskin is ignoring it must bore a hole deeper than anything Elon ever imagined.

I had one regular and one Republican (yer right, the added blade weight really cleaves through the thickest GOP necks).
