I wish nintex was here to grace us with his take on this :fbm
It's actually pretty simple.
They can explain it to themselves however they like but Mr. Musk has owned the libs beautifully and will continue to own them in the weeks, months and perhaps even years ahead even on this very website. :trumps

That NYT word salad is just another fantasy brainfart of someone who hangs around Starbucks during the day and watches CNN on repeat at night.
Apparently missing the flamethrower sale, Elon's SNL skit about Peach cheating on Mario, him backing DOGE coin as the worlds new reserve currency and many other great endeavors of Mr. Musk.

Will he try to attract top billing talent that has recently left or was fired from Twitter Corp?

Jesus.

Okay, conservatives bought into the QAnon nonsense, believing that (despite near constant media coverage) a shadowy elite are either eating, fucking, or drinking the blood of young children, presumed election interference meant that Trump had won, rather than seeing that they had only very narrowly lost (however sad that makes me), and held an armed insurrection in the nationís capitol where they planned to hang the Vice President.

But, okay, libs are the ones who have become extreme because we believe in BLM and would prefer gun nuts stop fucking shooting us.

Sure thing.

Much has been made of my recent $44 billion acquisition of Twitter. Reactions have ranged from elation to outrage, all of which I welcome; this is the type of robust exchange that a social media platform should guarantee. But Twitter isnít the only company in dire need of a culture shift; other, more traditional businesses have badly lost their way. And that is why Iím pleased to announce that I have acquired the sub sandwich restaurant Jimmy Johnís for a price of $3.6 billion.

This is an exciting new venture for me. Anyone who knows me knows that Iíve always wanted to master three realms: Space, green technology, and big, beefy subs with lots of gooey cheese melting out the sides. These are, you could say, my passions. And thought Iím immensely proud of what weíve achieved at SpaceX and Tesla, Iíll be so bold as to predict that we can surpass what weíve done with what we plan to accomplish at Jimmy Johnís. Weíre entering a bold new era of hoagies, friends.

But this purchase isnít just about pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with freshly baked bread and high-quality meats. Itís also about principle. Itís about what I believe a sub sandwich shop should be, about the implicit contract that a provider of grinders and flatbreads makes with its customers. I feel that Jimmy Johnís has fallen sadly short in this obligation. This acquisition is largely to transform Jimmy Johnís into the honest, delicious public forum that the people deserve.

Consider: What is the essence of the relationship between a sandwich chain restaurant and its customers? Surely, itís trust. To quote Thomas Paine: ďA body of men holding themselves accountable to nobody ought not to be trusted by anybody.Ē Jimmy Johnís has become one such unaccountable body. They have broken promises; they have ruled with a haughty arrogance that would shame the great tyrants of yore. I speak specifically of their blithe abuse of the Jimmy Johnís Freaky Fast Rewards Program.

rambling video, summary:

part 1
- musk just sold 8 billion in tesla stock
- terminating the twitter deal would incur a 1 billion penalty, but that can be written off against the gains from selling the stock
- tesla stock is massively overvalued and may be at its highest price, set to drop
- because musk sold the stock ostensibly to "fund buying twitter" he gets an easy out to avoid the public panic from selling for no reason

part 2
- musk knows how to manipulate SEO; just before a tesla whistleblower came forward, he made this "lolrandom" tweet and product

https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1465838829370228737

- doing this generated articles that dominated all search results for "elon musk tesla whistleblower" and made the real story difficult to find
- elon's drug use has always negatively affected tesla stock, see marijuana on joe rogan etc. so of course he tries to keep a lid on it
- musk used to date amber heard, who is on trial
- her drug use has been brought up in court, the two of them at least did ambien together
- guess what elon tweeted which has recently dominated articles

Is it me of there's some tendency for owning the libsô types to go with individuals while "the libs"© will innately more accept the premise that Facebook or Twitter as collective institutions could/would/should do a better job at managing those spaces than calling up on Zuckerberg or Dorsey or some enlightened tycoon type, no matter how flawed entrusting private companies with this might be ?

That's probably crude and oversimplistic but the whole cult of personality stuff seems more pronounced among some segments.

They believe in humanity while the libs believe in systems.

"in a latvian post office in 1975, two temporary seasonal workers started furiously debating the qualities of their respective favourite brands of biscuit. the events that followed eventually led to the poll tax riots in britain some 15 years later and it was the government's ability to both seed and harness this discontent that has led to the systematic apatheid we now see before us today. the fundamental prinicples of a debate about confectionary are infact the driving forces behind the current landscape of increasingly opaque social division, and neither side can seemingly do anything about it."

Doesn't sound too bad honestly.

If only a small proportion of people are responsible for the majority of tweets, then you charge them for the privilege of posting (and blue check marks) while letting everyone else view for free. You could do a tiered system:
  • Two tweets a day = free tier
  • Up to 10 tweets = cheap tier
  • 10+ or corporate users = expensive tier.
Blue check wankers already claim Twitter is an indispensible part of their lives and democracy (lol) so I think you'd convert most of them over to a paid tier. You'd also get rid/limit the ability of the majority of the terminally online morons who shit up the place with harassment campaigns.

here is the model:

  • you can make as many normal tweets or photo tweets as you like for free
  • video tweets or ones with images over 10 MB cost 5 twitcoins
  • every user gets one twitcoin per day for free and can earn more through gamified activities that demonstrate engagement like liking one tweet every day for a week/month etc.
  • also if you go sufficiently viral you earn a bunch of twitcoins
  • also you can tip people with them if you really liked their tweet and this shows up as a separate like metric, a "superlike"
  • you can buy twitcoins wholesale, 200 for $10
  • monthly $10 sub also gets you 200 twitcoins per month as well as other privileges like the blue check
  • you can also spend 600 twitcoins to get a t-shirt made out of any tweet you really like, or printed on coffee mugs or urinal cakes

Furthermore, the EU just passed the Digital Markets Act and the Digital Services Act, which will of course apply to Muskrat's Twitter, too.

Twitter shares have fallen to about $46, well below Elon Muskís purchase price of $54.20.

The sell-off has created a $9 billion gap between where Twitter is valued and how much Musk agreed to pay.

if twitter is going to be privately owned though I'm not sure it matters what the stock is valued at :idont

Why would you loan money to the guy willing to pay $54.20 when you can buy it yourself for $40?

because you can't afford it yourself, you're chipping in $5 to the guy paying the bulk of it, like a couple others

It's like thinking you can pick the theme of the prom because you brought a 20 oz coke to the committee meeting.

That's how I won over everyone to a Pirates of the Caribbean theme.  No one is going with No-pop Dylan's ideas.

I don't like the current owners and direction of Twitter so Elon buying it is something I support.
However, that doesn't change the fact that he looks like a dog chasing a bone.

He buys Twitter and lifts the bans.
The libs are owned. But then what?

Best outcome is not that Elon actually fixes Twitter, but instead that twitter dies a quick death.

keep in mind that humanity is too addicted to social media to leave well enough alone and a dead twitter could result in a worse alternative surfacing

like when tumblrites migrated to discords and twitter (tumblr is dead, long live tumblr)

or chinese-owned alternatives like tiktok

Ah, let me amend that then.

Best outcome is twitter and all of its severely-online users die a quick death

Well, I don't really want them to suffer, I just want them gone.
