I haven't been investigated by the state of California for having insanely racist Tesla factories, nor have I tortured monkeys to death because I got high and thought "I can make a brain chip" and then convinced myself it was still true when I was sober.  

ICR: 2

Elon: 0

I can't take the rest of your list seriously if you're so fucking stupid you think Elon was there when PayPal was founded.  He wasn't, and this is incredibly well known.

Yeah, he did. Technically he started X.com which merged with Thiel's Confinity (they both did the same thing), and they thought Paypal sounded better than "X" so they used that name.

None of those things make a person stupid. It makes them evil.

There is a big difference.

If Elon is evil why the fuck are you defending him you fucking shithead?

I already told you - Im no Elon fan boy.

But I do believe in truth.

And the truth is that the dude is VERY smart. Evil but smart. An IQ above both yours and mine. PhD student. Creator of multiple billion dollar businesses. 

You let emotions rule you too much. Thinking he is a bad guy doesnt mean he's not smart.

If he were smart Twitter wouldn't be going bankrupt.  If he were smart he'd be capable of making a single funny joke sometime in his entire pathetic life.  If he were smart he'd know what he doesn't know and rely on other people who do to help him run the largest social media platform in the world.

Actually if you read what some analysts are saying, this is likely his plan all along. And if he pulls it off, its fucking brilliant.

He leveraged part of Twitter (something like $16B) to buy it.

He then de-lists it and takes it private (to avoid showing profit margins), takes it through bankruptcy, unloads a lot of debt, re-organizes, takes it back onto the stock exchange to raise billions upon billions more, and he suddenly has an asset that is worth WAY more with way LESS debt.

Whether he can pull it off remains to be seen, but its the likely strategy and its smart. Twitter was a mess even before he took it over. Thats why they had to accept his buyout.

You dont seem to know what smart means. You keep getting it confused with "evil", "autistic", "weird" and other things.

I wouldn't even guess Elon's line of thinking in all this. That being said I see him as a very smart guy, but sometimes even the smartest get it wrong. So I have a hard time seeing him having plotted this all out to crash  twitter  in some nafarious plot to than pick it back up and make even more.  I think he may have critically wounded twitter so badly, even bringing back Trump and his band of MAGA's won't help him this time.

And Lit I suspect if he tried to take it through bankruptcy he 's going to have to open the books and "show profit margins".

And I don't think 'they' had to accept anything, the stockholders said yes to the offer cuz it was a damn good deal for them. It became an even better deal as Musk's antics only served to drive the price of Twitters stock lower and lower. That being said, I'd like to know how much of his 'own money' he put up to buy Twitter. It certainly wasn't close to $45.b he paid.  He had lots of investors.

How the fuck would this work?  Nobody is going to want to advertise on this "new" Twitter after Elon's total incompetence at running it is so evident.  Nobody is going to want to work for him on the backend to ensure FTC compliance.  If he burns Twitter to the ground, there is no building it back up.

Thats why he is turning to a consumer based business. Charging people $8 per month. And some advertisers will of course still use it.

Thats absurd. People will work for money. Especially in a recession.

Privately. To the court. Not publically.

The board did, yes. They have a fiduciary duty to sell for above market price. Otherwise they could be literally charged as its a public company. They even thought about putting a poision pill into it. So they sent it to the stockholders.

They won't work for Twitter if they have to self-certify FTC compliance like they're being asked to now.  If there's a threat that individual employees are going to be thrown under the bus as personally legally culpable for that shit when the government comes after the company nobody in their right mind will take that job.

Nazi alert!!  You only hate him because he did not censor views with which you disagree.   Why are you such an authoritarian bigot?

Dude, You are so far out of your league it's not even worth engaging with you.

They’ll obviously roll back that policy.
