    Mr Free Speech is now blocking hundreds of anti government protest accounts in India, a country where he is trying to be allowed to build another giant Tesla factory.

    I feel sure he would have thought through the ramifications of owning Twitter and also building cars/being allowed access to markets in authoritarian/nationalist countries.

    Maybe he just thought that he could get away with being a tool for these kind of governments abroad and that at home he could bullshit and bluster about free speech while throwing out a load of culture war bullshit to mask the corrupt deals with foreign dictatorships. It works for the GOP and their upward redistribution after all.

    Which leads me to the latest load of bullshit. According to Musk he was going to release evidence of massive collusion between pre-Musk twitter and the Democratic party to throw the 2020 election to the Democrats. It turns out the massive collusion was the Democrats asking twitter to take down five separate posts of pictures of Hunter Biden's genitals. The DNC were given a contact at twitter to allow them to quickly have stuff they wanted taken down reviewed by the twitter moderation team. But so were the GOP:

    We don't know what the GOP asked to have taken down but I'm sure we'll find out, they're surely not going to be so one sided about this, I have faith in Elon. Although he does seem a little bit confused about the First Amendment:

    The First Amendment protects your speech being infringed by the government, not a political party campaign. Maybe he means that the Trump campaign were an extension of the then government and them asking to take down whatever it is twitter took down for them is a violation of the 1st A. But the headline here was Hunter Biden and how this was some kind of huge scandal. And there's also this from the guy charged with publishing this huge bombshell on twitter:

    So it does look like Elon is bullshitting away here. It'll be interesting to see what else come out.

    I'm sure you'll be able to explain where I've gone wrong. You won't just run away or post another video I won't watch. You'll be able to explain in your own words using facts and evidence. Because it's not that you got it wrong and fall for every single bit of right wing bullshit because you've got the critical thought capability of an apricot, is it.

    He's not really wrong though is he?...(he as in Sadam Hussein Avatar)

    Musk is starting to look pretty suspicious, he's firing up a load of chaff and smoke even though his bombshell contradicts what he's posting:S... I guess he hopes no one actually reads it or something

    It'd make more sense if he's wanting to influence other countries so he can get good deals for his factories otherwise he's pulled a massive boner(teeheehee) with not only buying twitter but the also the way he has run it....bizarre stuff, Kanye has been banned too!

    For the incredibly cheap price of a $1 billion "investment" into Hunter biden's fund, China was able to buy the silence of the United States on the oppression of its citizens who are simply seeking basic freedoms and liberties. Pretty incredible return on investment for the CCP.

    The World Cup has historically been a boon for Twitter, bringing in record traffic and an influx of advertising dollars.But this time, when the global soccer tournament started on Nov. 20, Twitter’s U.S. ad revenue was running at 80 percent below internal expectations for that week, three people with knowledge of the figures said.


    https://www.nytimes.com/2022/12/02/t...e=articleShare





    Ninety percent of their revenue comes from advertising and they're eighty percent down.





    Elon is committed to free speech so so they've got that going for them:



    I asked Elon if his commitment to free speech, which he says is crucial to the future of humanity, extends to Chinese & Iranian protestors (earlier he ducked a question about Twitter supporting them). Elon scolded me & the right-wing hosts jumped in & kicked me out. Free speech!

    I'm becoming convinced that top boxing stars always chirping and fighting on Twatter is the reason they're not fighting in the ring. Constant 24/7 exposure to anything is bad, it's like a substandard-satisfaction and substitution for fans who feel some odd connection. Notice how much less often fans debate/ argue who will win, how top styles collide, what top fighters game plan will give the upper hand...now, it's just followers beefing over why fighter A and fighter B are not fighting in the first place. Can you imagine Hearns and Hagler midnight tweeting about each other's family members . Running random on this it's been a day.

    this is what all the nonsense has been distracting you from
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    That is sick what Musk is trying to do.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
