Musk now has MORE FOLLOWERS on Twitter than TRUMP did.

Musk has NINETY MILLION.

ANYTHING he boosts gets instant national attention.

You've been watching the Fake News and their controllers FREAKING THE HELL OUT about this for over 3 weeks now because Twitter is now being heavily influenced by someone who's messaging they do not control.

If Musk decides he wants to put 2000 MULES right in the NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT, he can do that.

And they can't stop him.

Except by...heh heh...banning his account.

Ever heard of...THE STREISAND EFFECT?

Do you KNOW what it is?

Do you know what it results in?

They can't stop what is coming.

That's what's so beautiful about what's happening.

They can't stop it.

It''s like watching a massive train coming at you and it's picking up speed and all you can do is watch it come with mounting horror.

It's just a game to them. They are sparring over who gets to rule the world. We don't have a dog in the fight.

Bad “beliefs have been able to flourish on the internet. Once-controversial voices have been emboldened by like-minded individuals and are making their way offline, both on the streets and at the polls.”

Like "freedom of speech" is a bad thing. Truly, a bad belief held by tyrants, communists, & other idiots.

The urinalists, er, journalists, are all set to launch The Revolution.

They seem to suffer from extreme Role Confusion.

Theirs is to REPORT...WHAT IS. NOT to incite the masses to revolt against some sort of strawman bogeyman...

I really like Higby, ex seal, says what he thinks and newsmax let’s him

he pushes hard for conceal carry or constitutional carry in New York and Connecticut

I just found out 6 “youths” broke into his house. He beat the shit out of two and four ran away and they charged him (old story he got off)

I guess no castle doctrine or right to defend yourself in blueville

Reading Elon Musk's tweets is pretty fun. He replied with this:

Jesse Watters on #TwitterAllHands "One of the craziest things you've ever seen!"

Yeah, the update on free speech is the same as the older version. We can say what we damn well please.

The irony just hit me, as I was doing some chores.

Twitter engages in a whole-hog censorship-and-ban campaign, lo these last 27 months.

And out of the outrage, emerges Musk. Who buys the joint.

For a price that few can justify.

...you know what? Dorsey and his cast of idiots, created VALUE for shareholders, with this censorship! Had Twitter remained what it was supposed to be, this buyout - and payment to existing shareholders - would never have happened!

That's hardly a disincentive for future gag campaigns.

due diligence is a multi month process. I’ve had it take 6 months before

in a hostile takeover like this, they don’t let you in until after the offer is accepted. They’re too, busy trying to get rid of you to show you around the office and let you read the books

if It already happened I must have missed it. I agree on the officer liability. That’s Sarbanes Oxley requirements

I don't know about the rest of you metalheads but I can't even imagine imagining being able to line up 45 BILLION dollars for a purchase.

Maybe but I’d say it’s equally probable it’s undervalued when compared to what it would have been worth with a businessman running it,

the idiot leftists never figured out how to turn an actual profit. I know That’s not why he bought it, but there might have been white knights in the race if they developed a growing revenue stream

Perhaps. It's a valid hypothesis.

But, from the whacko Lefty tech-dweeb point of view, this is really the motivation to double-down...and hope for a big payday in the future.

If there is a future.

Interesting, that most of those we never heard of, twenty years ago.

And of those we had....Gates, and some others, were nowhere NEAR that level.

Maybe we need some sort of Windfall Tax on Tech tycoons?

That chart is from Sep 21

musk is worth 262 billion based on the advancement of Tesla stock the last 8 months

not to quibble but 70 extra billion is almost twice what he paid for twitter

Brands should force Twitter to uphold content policies under Musk, advocacy groups say

And I have no idea what this tweet means. Sounds like something that would go in the Q thread.

Musk just committed career suicide.

Not his fault. He didn't, doesn't understand the mind of Woketards. Few do, nobody does, completely...but they're all looking for secular gods to save them.

Musk had become one; and his business of making oversized golf carts (that tend to catch fire) relied on the quasi-religious honor the Woke pay to their gods. THAT is why TSLA has a greater market-cap than Ford or GM. It's the Narrative...it's a Meme Stock.

Now that's gone. Or will soon be, if Musk doesn't figure out how to salvage his image to the Twitteratti.

We saw some of this 40 years ago, with Lee Iacocca. Fired, unfairly, by Ford, he was brought in to turn around Chrysler. Which he did - it wasn't hard; it just involved making hard-but-necessary choices. He did, and then led his company into purchasing American Motors.

To much of America, he was a hero. There was talk of his running for President. But THEN...he rationalized his American Motors properties. He closed down the car lines of AMC - including all Kenosha, Wisconsin factories but one. All of a sudden, America's favorite car exec was being burned in effigy.

But back then we weren't Woketards looking for Cult Heroes. We were just, many of us, caught up in some hero worship, and the hero showed he was the same as everyone else in his position. As is logical and necessary.

Musk and Musk fanboiz, haven't had that wake-up until now.
The WOKEtards are a loud mouth minority. DISNEY has lost 40% share value due to supporting Kathleen Kennedy & WOKEtards and NOT doing their fiduciary obligation to stock holders ( Increase the Value of the Company). DISNEY will continue sabotaging itself with the numerous WOKE versions of MARVEL and StarWars movies headed to theaters and DISNEY +. DISNEY+ subscriptions are still sinking due to their WOKE propaganda and their theme parks are seeing more "Cast Members" than patrons walking around.
Musk is far from career suicide.
