For just the price of a Starbucks's coffee per day, you can help bail out Elon Musk.

I can't help wondering why he hasn't disabled that yet.  He took out everything else that worked, why not the user fact-check?

If he accidentally broke things that did work because he doesn't know how to run Twitter, doesn't it follow that he'd fail to break things that he was trying to break intentionally?

What if we just informed Elon for a week?

Maybe just a day?

I'll assume you meant 'ignore'.  But careful. Talking that way in an Elon thread could get you a time out for 'hate crimes'.

I'm not following this super closely, but I believe there is some possibility that Elon got billions from Saudi to buy Twitter. I hope it was agreed upon beforehand that Elon would burn their money to the ground along with Twitter, because otherwise, I'm thinking bone saw

So far today the new owner of Twitter has:

- Accused Apple of being anti-American
- Posted a doctored CNN article
- Posted a white supremacist logo

I clicked the link, and still didn't see the disclaimer. Do you have to be logged into Twitter to see it? Or did Elon have it removed?

Probably part of  Twitter's agreement with the government.  He removes it, he gets fined even more money.

Multiple *fake* guns, to clarify. The revolver's 100% a replica prop of a Deus Ex: Human Revolution gun.

which gives that entire picture an INCREDIBLE "While you were partying, I studied the blade" energy.

I'm finding it hilarious. I logged on this morning to see that so far he has:

Tweeted a picture of his nightstand that looks like an AI generated image for "divorced man"

Gone all in on the antisemitism by posting Pepe memes

Decided to go to war with Apple

Botched the payroll for employees in the EU

Twitter was always a dumpster fire, but it looks like he's trying to fix it by dropping an overflowing porta potty on it from great height.

00-10 In my formative years, I determined that my father was bonkers.
11-20 This led to distrust of my father, which resulted. for me, in a general distrust in authority.
21-30 This led to an inflexible attitude which had difficulty fitting in anywhere.
31-40 This led to me wondering whether I had fundamentally misunderstood my father when I was a child,
41-50 Yah, no. 0-10 was right on the money.

yeah, it was the only encapsulation I could find so I shoved it down your throat.  Sorry, a little bit.

Elon has not been allowing people to speak freely. He has been banning antifascist accounts left and right.

He's more just a fan of fascists, not free speech.
 
2022-11-28 3:41:05 PM  
Fast cars, orchids, and bird watching can certainly be expensive, but not quite that publicly embarrassing. I would've added young girls with daddy issues to the list, but I'm pretty sure he adopted that hobby as well.

And it's costing him millions in lost revenue as well as damaging investor's confidence in Elon's ability to lead.
Musk is behaving like an unmedicated bipolar on a hyper manic episode/binge.
He's gonna crash at some point tho.

Not just a dork. The only reason to drink caffeine free coke is if you wet the bed in your sleep. Which brings up interesting questions.

(In my early teens I was restricted to caffeine free coke. But I got better.)

Twitter is not, in itself, "free speech." It can speak freely as a company and website if it wishes to, but it does not somehow embody that fundamental American right. In any way. That Musk thinks it does just shows how badly he misunderstands his own plaything.

Deus Ex is a video game series, of which Human Revolution is one of the recent entries. The whole "I studied the blade" thing is a meme making fun of neckbeards with tipped fedoras who all claim that they defended some woman by simply showing off a katana while a big, muscle-bound football player ran away in fear.
