The Dems are lining up with the EU dictators trying to suppress speech. It still won't surprise me if Twitter files for bankruptcy. I think the EU and some in Congress are determined to destroy Musk

And onone hand you can’t half blame many of them if they are worth their salt if they don’t like the looks of where the company is headed. Nothing worse than working somewhere you hate your workplace and job. Many of them are probably pretty talented marketers and programmers and will head to another tech sector giant and grab a new gig more to their liking.

I’m not disagreeing that the owner of the company should have the power to dictate most of what goes on, but part of being a valuable employee is being able to leverage that to your advantage ad an employee. Lots of people have had to make a lot of changes to their lives being told they WOULD be working from home for the foreseeable future and planned accordingly in many fronts. Sometimes totally cleaning house works out GREAT, sometimes it doesn’t.

I think both sides are being both reasonable and childish at moments. I used to have the utmost respect for Musk and still have a fair amount, but it has definitely degraded a bit. Happy trapping! ScottW

Twitter running fine with 90% less employees,,,,,,

Snowflake’s melting world wide,,,,,,


IMHO the trump poll isn’t great for “free speech”

But as Elon had said, it’s the most effective way too weed out the “bots/fake accounts”

Its interesting too see what the guy that brought us reusable rockets/driverless cars/cheap internet/electric cars will be able too do with social media

This part makes no sense. If you really believe in free speech, why should 10 million twitter users determine who gets to speak, and who doesn't? Maybe ban the 5 million who oppose free speech.

5% of 10 milion isn't 5 million.....

I hope Musk has the strength to continue in his endeavor with Twitter as he did with SpaceX and never give up.
I agree though, the powers that be are determined to destroy him. If we've learned anything from the Trump fiasco; it is that no matter how much money one has if they don't back and say/do the PC thing, then their head will be on the chopping block.

And when you're facing that there really isn't but one option. Full steam ahead because if you surrender now then they can destroy you at their leisure. Either defeat them them now or make them show their full colors.

5% of 10 milion isn't 5 million.....


I said Trump being back was leading by 5%. 47% (48% now) voted AGAINST Trump being reinstated. 47% of 10 mil is close to 5mil.

It's now got almost 15 million votes, Trump back on = 51.8% Trump banned 48.2% so the gap is closing but the poll ends in half an hour.

I hear he changed the name from Twitter to Quitter.

There are two sides to every coin and the left only wants you to see their side. Doable when leftists ran twitter. Not so much now.

Twitter is hot right now, and every Trump utterance from Truth gets retweeted on twitter.

It will get better every day.

Musk got 15 million interactions in one post. That alone has to be a record. No, twitter is not going under unless the G men shut it down. In fact I would buy stock if I was into trading.

Orange man rad says he aint coming back though. He should with that kind of following, if nothing more than to show up Bidins Sorry amount of twitter followers.

The problem isn't the number of users it's the movement to eliminate advertising on Twitter. Without advertising twitter will go belly up and will also hammer the stock price of Tesla.. Musk is on shaky ground no matter how smart he is.

As far as buying twitter stock..............you can't because there is none. It's a private company now, not public
