And he is attacking Apple.  I lose track.   Does this mean it is time to sell Apple?
Depends on who you ask. Some say Apple threatened to stop having twitter in the app store first.

People thing musk is dumb.

I don't think that's the case. I think he knows exactly what he's doing
Speaking only for myself, I don't think he is dumb.

I also don't think he has any idea of what he is doing.

Musk has rid himself of anyone who would dare criticize him or tell him no. He is a boy King who thinks his own farts are the sweetest of perfumes while being buoyed by a cadre of fanbois who exult in him being an ahole.

Corporate America is not amused at his anti-social antics.

Apple might have an argument that the content now being allowed on Twitter runs contrary to their own corporate policies and practices.

Can't imagine why.
Anyhow, picking a fight with the company that controls 55% of the smartphone market seems like not the best tactic for a social media company.

That might be true, but if you think that's the reason why Apple is saying that, I have a bridge to sell you. There are much worse apps that are on the app store.

This will not end well for either side. Musk has enough resources to have Apple lose quite a bit of market share in both the phone and app space.

Here's an interesting article:

Apple will be fine.  Twitter will be fine.  Musk is stirring the pot for attention and it’s working

Hah, reading this (and not twitter), I agree.  He's going with the "any news is good publicity" stunt and it's working (currently).  I know of an orange haired fellow that used this strategy.

Apple is definitely gonna be fine. Jury's out on Twitter, a poorly run company that went for too much money paid for by a guy who didn't even want it.

And Tim Apple would laugh out loud at any threat from Musk.

Twitter has had a child pornography problem since its inception.

Free Speech!

Maybe Musk should do a simple Twitter poll to determine what to do.

Jesus I didn't even see that part of this mess. Less than 10 people to track and combat all of the child exploitation that goes on Twitter? That's an impossible ask

i'm just glad that "they're" going to keep a close eye on twitter now; be damned if any misinformation gets out or even the denial of accurate information getting in.

@CNN
Twitter said it will no longer enforce its longstanding Covid misinformation policy, yet another sign of how Elon Musk plans to transform the social media company he bought a month ago

Imagine what an awful, soul crushing job that would be.

Had a buddy that worked child sex crimes for the DA's office.  The burnout was quick.

I should clarify. With regard to running Twitter, he's slowly figuring it out and doing it his way

With regards to his individual tweets/replies, he knows exactly what he's doing

Let’s not pretend to be surprised by these moves.

There IS a purpose to what he is doing.

My office occasionally gets cases like this. Fortunately not often given the population we work with. I've made it clear that I can never be assigned to a case like that. I don't know how people do that work but bless them for it.

Read a tell all article from a person who does that for Facebook and it sounded like possibly the worst experience ever. He talked about the straight up murders, rapes, child porn etc that he constantly has to delete.

On another note in Milwaukee public schools if any kid is caught having sex the principle and head of security need to watch it together, document what happened in detail and then delete the video. Also would be painfully soul crushing and hard to view the teens in the same light after some of that...

Is it just me, or do Musk's tweets sound more desperate and trump-ish every day?

His tweet "Apple has mostly stopped advertising on twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?" could have been written by the Orange Madman himself.

Of course, free speech includes choosing where you advertise.

Think I read that too.  Kind of article that makes you go grab a bottle of $5 vodka and chug it.
