Elon doesn't seem to have a clue what should be done with Twitter
Imagine spending $44 billion for a business and having no idea what you are going to do with it. That's what it seems like with Elon's recent acquisition of Twitter. The next few months/years should be hilarious. Who wants to bet how long it will take for it to go bankrupt, or do you believe Elon will keep propping it up by selling shares of Tesla?

He would probably just do the world a favour by shutting the entire cesspit down!

Re: Elon doesn't seem to have a clue what should be done with Twitter
I think he got high and thought he was making a joke, like when he got wedge he could take Tesla private for a certain amount per share, something to do with 420 of course.
Anyway he spent days on the phone with Arabs trying to secure funding so he wouldn’t get listed by the SEC.
I truly believe he’s just a fucking moron.

Re: Elon doesn't seem to have a clue what should be done with Twitter
Well, he can ruin it as a source of pure propaganda for the other side.


Maybe the money was EXPENDABLE to him.


Maybe he wants something else.


Political capital.


Not saying he's one of my heroes just yet, but assuming he bought it to make money as a going concern may be incorrect.



Maybe he sees himself as sort of the next Trump.

One of America's papabile to borrow a word from my paesanos.


Not necessarily in the short term future..but down the road.

The Arabs are his sort of silent partners.

He did take Twitter private.


That does not mean he is the only "owner".

He handed the keys to the ADL today.

You should assume that site will be weaponized by the people you can't talk about on this site.

She left him because he made her eat peanut butter sandwiches for dinner every night and live in a run down house. And no, I'm not making that up.

Re: Elon doesn't seem to have a clue what should be done with Twitter
The dude is just absolutely catastrophic in every respect, although not as much as Trump.

They've gotten in so far over their heads with the Ukraine thing it's not even funny, and now all they can think about again is far right and Trump.....

That comes before war in Europe, NOT AFTER.....

The thing with the Scotch and the green on Rogan was the absolute limit too, unbelievable this guy.

Re: Elon doesn't seem to have a clue what should be done with Twitter
I miss Compuserve and it's many many different special interest forums. Anyone remember those?

This is how Twitter should be set up. This would minimize banishments too.

Some people should be banned from political forums, but allowed to participate in other forums. This would allow those that don't want to see tweets about certain subjects to avoid those topics. Fewer people would be unintentionally offended.

These different special interest topic areas could be managed and supervised by those interested in these different subjects.
