    In the meantime we just have to live with the carnage that it will leave behind as Elon let’s everyone back on

    Doesn't matter. Just don't go to twitter. If it gets bad nobody will be there anyway.

    Twitter needs to get much better or die. The existence of Twitter in its current position makes it nearly impossible for a better alternative to twke over.

    If Musk makes it worse it creates a fantastic opportunity for a better alternative. That's why I'm not at all worried about it. If it's shit, I just won't go there. Just like I no longer go to MySpace. I don't miss it at all.

    That’s the issue. I don’t need Twitter. Fine. I’ll give it up. I care about what the massive amount of lies and hatred that Magats circulate around that has caused and will continue to cause a divide in the country. If I’m on or not, this happens.

    True, but that's going to happen on TRUTH or whatever they can find. It happens now in private Facebook, Instagram, telagram, signal, and Discord groups...

    Restrictions aren't the answer to this problem. Education is the answer.

    I'm intrigued by the idea of Musk open sourcing the algorithm, and making all moderation actions public. As well as reducing the platforms reliance on advertising.

    I think we'll learn a lot from this experiment, and I think it will end up being a good thing.

    I think the worst case scenario is Twitter trending heavily right wing, at which point it will lose all public trust and go the way of MySpace.

    Looks like Elon is having second thoughts. The sale is on hold. Sounds like the stock went down and he is having more issues then he thought raising the capital.

    Looks like he's requesting they verify their numbers of users, bots, etc.

    That ought to be fun.

    This whole shit with Twitter has been illegal insider trading. Just another example of the 1% doing whatever they want with absolutely no consequences

    Yeah it is. The very definition of illegal. He was four months late in telling the SEC he was buying the company.

    Elon Musk 'paid SpaceX corporate flight attendant $250,000 to settle claim he propositioned her for sex, exposed himself and offered to buy her a horse in exchange for a massage'
    • Musk, 50, was accused of exposing himself to the flight attendant, rubbing her leg and offering gifts in exchange for a massage
    • The 2016 incident is alleged in papers signed by a friend of the flight attendant. Other records and correspondence were also turned over by the friend

    Hello, I'm Elon M.

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course
    And no one can offer a horse, of course
    That is, of course, unless the horse is the price of a massage

    Go right to the source and ask about the horse
    He'll tweet out something that you'll not endorse
    He's always on an unsteady course
    Talk to Elon M.

    People yakkity yak a streak
    And cause your head some pain
    But Elon M. will never tweet
    Unless he has something to gain

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course
    And Elon will make an offer that's coarse
    You never heard of a massage for a horse?
    Well listen to this

    I am Elon M.

    yes the democrats run on hate. Much better to vote Republican because they don’t have any hate in their platform

    Forget the whole racist mass murderer who followed the most prominent media voice in the Republican Party.
