Just remember, none of this was important enough to report until Musk started threatening the blue ticks' little fiefdoms.

It was particularly not important enough to report when Musk was the darling of the blue ticks and was single handedly saving the planet from climate change.

Dude. Did you read the article?

It was not reported because it wasn’t known.

You can criticize the veracity of the claims given second hand account from a shitty friend, but it wasn’t known and he has not denied it.

It's no coincidence this was on the eve of starliner flying and the FAA once again hemming and hawing over letting musk launch starship tests.

That said, all he’s got to do at any given moment is respirate and, if online mob sees him do it:

I mean, I feel is kind of difficult to Twitter to ignore him when he is buying twitter. Is not like he doesn’t love the attention, in any case.

Elon Musk’s Twitter Plans Would Mean Less Free Speech for Many
The platform has a history of standing up to governments. Its billionaire suitor wants to follow their rules to the letter.

Saw this coming with the order to return to the office or leave.  Same shit at Netflix telling employees to leave if they don't like their policies.  Healthy companies don't use language that activily tries to get people to resign.

Muskrat threatens to pull out of Twitter deal without more information about fake accounts.

Quote
Mr. Musk’s lawyers said that Twitter was “actively resisting” his requests.

Elon Musk is threatening to pull out of his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter if the company does not provide more information on how it calculates the number of fake accounts.

In a letter delivered to Twitter on Monday and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Mr. Musk’s lawyers at the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom argued that Twitter was “actively resisting and thwarting” Mr. Musk’s rights under the terms of his deal to acquire the social media company. His lawyers accused Twitter of a “clear material breach” of its obligations and said that Mr. Musk had the right to break off the agreement as a result.[...]

Richard Hoeg did a rundown video on the legal filings for this that seemed pretty easy to follow.  Even with Elon going full loony-troll lately, Twitter’s continued resistance to provide hard data even when still protected from public release by Elon, has me thinking they’re using an intentionally shit methodology to arrive at their provided percentage of bot accounts.

Most “geniuses“ would look into this sort of thing before offering $44 billion in a purchase. You know, kick the tires. Have an inspection.

One email across a company DL of even mild criticism of that company’s CEO is enough to terminate over.  Because it’s criticism of Elon doesn’t change that.

If you’re that serious about it, you’re not forced to work for them.

The news isn't interesting because they got fired.  It's interesting because the employees were fed enough to put their jobs on the lines to send the email. It's more evidence that he's not a steller CEO.  Seems like they were serious, are no longer working for him, and did so in a way that potentially helps the people who are dissatisfied with Musk but don't want to lose their job.   The takes that this is the obvious consequence of publically criticizing your boss are not necessary because no one expected them not to be fired.   Also the free speech hypocrisy (ya ya not free from consequences etc etc).

While you may not care enough about Taco Bell to put your cashier job on the line, many people enjoy the jobs they're doing and care about the work. Asking for positive change is not a negative thing. Companies are made out of people, if they aren't happy, your don't have a company

They sent an email asking for people to provide feedback. That's pretty reasonable.

Good luck recruiting where even the lightest feedback results in being fired. Musk forgets unemployment is still at record lows

I agree it’s interesting that the employees were ready to go with that open letter, but the result is not surprising in the least, especially when your first demand point of discussion is for the company to publicly condemn its own sitting CEO.  A smarter play would’ve been to keep it more neutral in tone with regards to Elon’s public behavior and the impact that has in the workplace.  Maybe a request for open dialogue with the company heads before going full-tilt.

Nice one with the Taco Bell cashier barb, Jimmy.  Crypto market got you down, buddy?
