yeah, i really miss jack dorsey, the epitome of reason and fairness.  i miss those days when they could just zap opinions and people they didn't like with flip of a switch.  that was cool! 

interesting hoe elon is drawing so much angst.  musta been something he said?  what's everyone afraid of?  now if they could just silence fox news like pierre does with press, everything would be great

Who's afraid? No one is suggesting that he can't run Twitter how he wants. Just like prior to his ownership, the people running the company could run it the way they want...at the shareholder's blessing of course.

Is he somehow exempt from criticism?

I’ll go ahead and give this a 7 out of 10.  Pretty generic work but hit some of the classics.

What if, stay with me here, both weren't doing a good job?  You can say Musk is handling this poorly, while also saying old Twitter, even "woke" Dorsey Twitter, also stunk at many things.

Wait a minute, are you saying more than one thing can be true at the same time?

Unfathomable.

Well, yes, he has relentlessly proven he is an awful asswipe, one that has removed anyone that dares disagree with and has dismantled all governance structure around himself so that he can indulge his 12-year-old boy self unfettered by any rules.

But what I am wondering about is WTF he is doing from a business decision-making standpoint.

We still don't know how much Musk put up and how much other invested added to the pot - although the vast majority was certainly Musk money.

As far as decision making, my guess is that he is playing a long game. Twitter gives him sway and I think over the next couple of years there will be lots of foreign investment - whether directly in Twitter or involving Tesla and Space X.

Plus, as you said, Power Matters. Even more than money when you get to where Musk is at.

Ok I have no clue what you are even trying to say here. But we have a Twitter thread here because Twitter is in the news. Not really that hard to figure out.

I'm surprised anyone takes the time to read.  Just scroll by for your sanity except Uncle Rico because we need a rating.

Yep, roQQet, if there was one word any of us would use to best describe your Scoop posts, it would be "deep."

Actually it would be helpful if you simply used the English language.

This guy’s in charge? There is a tiny possibility there is more to the story than meets the eye. Or so he says.

Anyone else concerned that Musk is using simple twitter polls to determine if someone should be banned from the platform? I feel like this is a huge threat to democracy.

We don't care if he bans people ... as long as he only bans those we disagree with.

Simple Twitter polls are the absolute best way to determine corporate policy.

Apparently, receiving personal phone calls from Musk begging them to return was not enough to change the minds of the executives at former advertisers.

The FT was reporting he was berating them, which is really savvy.

Hmmm, letting racists, seditionists, etc. spread hate and harass people doesn't appear, at first glance, to be a winning business model. Plus, Parlor, Gab, et al have first mover advantage there.

People thing musk is dumb.
