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?

He buys Twitter
He unbans Trump.

Scenario A: Trump starts tweeting his same stupid shit, people boycott Twitter AND people boycott Tesla (his highest sales continue to be in California)

Scenario B: Trump doesnt tweet or promotes truth social, people boycott Twitter AND people boycott Tesla (his highest sales continue to be in California)

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

You'd think being so lightly headed would be a major problem in maintaining the sort of trust and tight ship you need in massive business moves but I guess not.

He has been coming across as a volatile, unhinged moron for the last few years.

He's really just a troll who managed to convince the same archetype of personality who fell for Trump (=not the same people) of being their savior.

As I said before, just like Trump is a simpleton's idea of a rich person, Musk is a simpleton's idea of a genius.

That’s why it blows my mind that anyone thinks he has a plan beyond trolling and shitposting because his twitter addiction. The guy may as well be a competent or genuinely good entrepreneur but he is also extremely impulsive and petty; and it just got worse after years of believing his own hype. I still remember that mini submarine shit and his meltdown.

It seems he always came up ahead financially but it's hard to say if it's financial genius or just being floated up by the tide (of Tesla stocks, lately). He's transparently using Twitter (or PR) as a way to game markets but I guess this ship sailed when the SEC didn't fell down harder then.

The way he recently insulted Bill Gates was pretty revolting.
(In case anyone missed it, Gates privately asked Musk if he was interested in philanthropy. Musk then asked Gates if he was still shorting Tesla. Gates confirmed it, Musk got angry and ended the chat. He then leaked the chat and posted this:

I would have given him the benefit of doubt (like I said, I feel it was too convenient) if he didnt started with "this is a political attack" before the news drop.

At the same time, is not like this changes anything overall of all this orderall (the case was already settled and no one cares outside of twitter drama).

Yeah, this is conspiratorial thinking. A claim about a 2016 incident that was settled for peanuts in 2018 isn't a "news drop" that you or anyone else needs to be "gaslit" about. If you seriously think all of Musk's shitposting the other day was an elaborate attempt to cover up a complete non-story he had somehow heard a semi-tabloid was going to report I don't know what to tell you other than to try to be a little more skeptical in life.

I don't know all that much about Elon Musk, though I have a new history of PayPal as my next book to read and I'm against my own will seeming to learn more and more about him, but he doesn't strike me as very much of a schemer.

Dude, they asked him directly, is in the article:

Quote
After Insider contacted Musk for comment, he emailed to ask for more time to respond and said there is "a lot more to this story."

"If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light," he wrote, calling the story a "politically motivated hit piece."


Insider extended the deadline and reiterated the offer to Musk to comment on the claims. He did not respond.

Reached via cell phone, SpaceX vice president of legal Christopher Cardaci said, "I'm not going to comment on any settlement agreements." SpaceX did not respond to requests for comment to its general media contact email address.

He knew it was coming.

Quote
Musk has denied the allegations in a series of tweets over the past two days, calling them "wild accusations" that are "utterly untrue" and challenging the flight attendant's friend to describe any feature of his anatomy, such as scars or tattoos, "that isn't known by the public."

Quote
According to John Cook, investigations editor at Insider, the publication reached out to Musk at around 9 a.m. EDT (1300 GMT) on Wednesday — about three hours before Musk posted his "dirty tricks" tweet.

I never say it was a smart plan. Hell, I will say this story wouldn’t have taken off if he didn’t pulled a Trump and say everything the press was going to publish was incoming lies.

The dude has a history of being hyper defensive at twitter and trying to manipulate people by saying something there and acting in other way.

Did you forget the shitshow he created when he said that diver was a pedophile because he criticized his mini submarine. It was a hell of his own making.
