I bought the stock 4 weeks ago at 38.75 and sold it today for 51.88. I've never had an account. I just jumped on it when the rumours started circulating.

Yes. Already saw a headline about the 'fear' that large numbers of Irish twitter workers will resign in protest. If they do, fuck them. There are hundreds of thousands more that could fill those jobs in the morning.

Trump already said he won’t go back, even though we all know he won’t be able to resist.

I would assume he has some sort of non-compete clause with his homebrew site, but you're right, he'd probably say "fuck it" and start posting on Twitter anyway.

It makes me sad for humanity.  Even on my wrestling Twitter I have to hear Mock Foley whine that he might have to leave, like he's a message board poster from OSW announcing his departure 15 years ago.  I rarely go on Twitter and it doesn't affect my life at all, and shouldn't really affect anyone else's either.

The best part is people screaming that billionaires shouldn't control the content on social media platforms...um, who controls them now, including on Twitter?  One is opening up speech, the others are shutting it down.  And even if he wasn't, how would that be any different?

Not coincidentally, Obama gave a speech last week in which he urged big tech to censor even more viewpoints.  He said he's pretty close to being a First Amendment absolutist, but...

He compared it to the FDA's ability to inspect meat packing plants.  You know, because reading someone's opinion that men can't get pregnant or that mRNA vaccines have demonstrable drawbacks is clearly as dangerous to one's health as contracting salmonella.

Ha.  I deal with the FDA and I can't really argue.  The Food Safety Modernization Act of a few years ago was a completely unnecessary bit of legislation that, naturally, expanded the FDA's size and gave them far too much authority over private business.  I'm not against setting basic standards for the production and labeling of items that are ingested into one's body, but, as always, the people in charge are never satisfied with the reasonable.  An FDA inspector can now walk into your plant unannounced and determine that you're making products under conditions that are "potentially" deleterious and have you shut down.  No evidence is required that you've harmed a single person, just that the inspector that day didn't like the looks of your operating conditions.

This seems strange. Musk paid a premium price for this. It came to 1/5 his total wealth. Twitter is not a moneymaker in and of itself. What's his end game because on the surface it seems like at best a very mediocre business deal.

I dunno. Paying 44 billion so you can add and edit button seems like sound business to me.:tongue:


Ultimately I think it gives him a forum to say whatever he wants without fear of reprisal or his tweets being removed.


All I've ever needed to know about Twitter is the first four letters spell TWIT.  I have no use for it and only read a tweet if it's posted here or somewhere else I frequent.  This is just his latest plaything and if he wants to spend his money on it, then fill your boots.

It's just a power play.  He has more money than he could ever spend in 50 lifetimes, but he gets off on pissing people off and can pretty much print money from his other businesses at will.  This gives him a seat at a different table.  The Twitter name is worth more than money.

I have an issue with both.  It’s two guys in a dick measuring contest where we could be the ones getting pissed on.   Sometimes I feel like we are being toyed with by the Duke brothers like Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd in “Trading Places”.  All this bullshit over a $1 bet.

Unless they are being suspended or banned, they are still free to speak, and he is free to not listen. 

I've had you on ignore for years and choose to look at what you have to say from time to time and that has never stopped you from posting.

I’m seeing a few people in indy media talk about how recently a size able chunk of banned people have been allowed back on the platform and some conservative leaning people have had their follower count spike in some cases as much as 65,000 new followers in a day.

This sounds suspiciously like a Trump quote: “Lots of people are saying…”  Seems like complete unsubstantiated nonsense, and I doubt Musk personally even has operational control yet. But on the off-chance this is even remotely accurate, Musk did say that one of his goals was to get rid of the bots, so that would probably account for the loss of followers, although again it’s doubtful that anything is really happening yet. But if tens of thousands of people were getting banned from Twitter in the past 2 days, I bet you’d know some of their names and be hearing a lot about it. Use some common sense.

It's not Musk it is being proposed that Twitter is reversing the algorithmic suppression. In the words of some "burning evidence before the take over"

The discussions i’ve seen regarding losses believe it is related to the removal of bots and sock puppet accounts.

Roger Stone, who was permanently banned from Twitter in 2017, created a socko account yesterday and announced he was back and wanted to see if Musk's commitment to free speech was real. His account remained active for less than 8 hours before he was banned again. Musk is not pushing the buttons yet so all this talk is amusing.

It's frightening when the elected officials are saying this type of stuff that only the mental patients in their parties used to say.  This goes for both the left and the right.  AOC's tweet is completely unhinged and outside of the realm of reality, and she's supposed to represent the people.

I get where Musk is coming from. A Pope-following Catholic would have probably been considered "liberal" and voted Democrat in the 1950s and earlier, primarily due to our stance on social issues like welfare, immigration, civil rights etc. Now, thanks largely to abortion and LGBTQ+ and white demonization, we do not belong in the Democrat party and are considered right-wing extremists. Catholic teaching hasn't changed a bit, society has.  Good example is racism.  Catholics believe it's wrong to choose someone for a job just because of skin color.  In the 1950s, we thought that the policy of "blacks need not apply" was wrong so we were considered left-wing.  Today the "only blacks need apply" (e.g. the latest job at the Supreme Court) is also wrong, but we are now considered right-wing for thinking that.

It certainly seems like there has been an interesting reshuffling of the deck when it comes political parties. 



I think Elon is going to be the gateway for a lot of high profile people to stop towing the Dem party line. He is the heat magnet and will stay it especially if he does end up buying twitter.

I don't even want to sit through meetings at my own job much less watch a 45-minute meeting for another job unrelated to my life.  Did he shoot laser beams out of his eyes?

Not really, but this reminds me that I have to start watching "The Boys" again this weekend.

I've watched the first 3 or 4 (i forget how many were out bu last weekendl. It's very good, I think. Anyone who looked the first two seasons should like it. 
Elon Musk isn't anything like Homelander.

Twitter broke its own rules by allowing a persons “deadname” to trend yesterday.

So on twitter can someone say Ellen Page starred in Juno and Eliot Page starred in the new season of Umbrella Academy ?

This shit is fucking nonsensical.

Much like the pronoun circus, the intent isn't to soothe the brittle feelings of the freak cohort.  It's intended to frustrate and humiliate normal people like you and me.

Musk has officially backed out, and now the lawsuits will begin. What a shit-show.

Still laughing at the people who thought Musk was banning people when he never even had the slightest bit of control at the company.

I'm legitimately confused. A month or so ago Musk announced he was trying to buy Twitter. Their board, not to mention the media and posters on twitter, said it simply cannot happen. It would be the end of democracy. He'd platform disinformation and that would ruin society. People were adamant. Now he says he doesn't want to buy and they're going to sue to force the sale?

Is it possible that he never had any real intention of buying it?

My name is not Jerry but it looks like Twitter failed to turn over the information requested for over a month and counting. 

To be precise i suppose i should have said it appears to or they are claiming it shows.
