The Twitter Implosion
How do you make a small fortune in social media? Start out with a large one. - Elon Musk

The Banned Played On


The Twitter implosion is shaking social media.  

Elon Musk (the most intelligent person in history) laid off a bunch of Twitter employees and promised to abuse any employees who decided to stay.  Since Musk has instituted his new "hardcore" policy, all employees are required to work naked.  The Twitter building is locked and the only people who can unlock the building are gone.  Employee card keys have been disabled.  Poor Elon is locked inside with both of the Twitter employees who haven't quit (yet).

Elon "Free Speech" Musk used his free speech police to comb through the emails and messages of Twitter employees and he fired anyone who was critical of him.  Twitter users who criticized Musk were permanently suspended.  Apparently, to Elon Musk, using the "N-word" is free speech, butt anything negative about him is strictly prohibited.

Elon Musk, the Chief Twit, has a new plan to revive Twitter.  First, he will welcome Donald Trump back to Twitter.   White supremacist extremist groups, like the Republican Party, will be welcome to spread their lies and propaganda on Twitter.  Idiots like Fucker Carlson, Mike Lindell, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and Louie Gohmert will be encouraged to tweet their stupidity.

Musk will even invite members of fringe groups like QAnon, the KKK, Nazis, the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers and various White-wing "militias" to spew hate and conspiracy theories on Twitter.

Since Twitter lost its current advertisers, like General Motors, it will feature lots of My Pillow ads.   Musk will sell advertising to the NRA (and, of course, gun and ammunition manufacturers and retailers). 

Musk plans to have a plethora of political advertising.   Twitter is also experimenting with "classified ads".  This section will be for prostitution, pornography, guns, and almost anything else.

Yes.  

Twitter is hemorrhaging.  The life blood of every company is its employees. 

Inside Twitter as ‘mass exodus’ of staffers throws platform’s future into uncertainty

New York CNN Business  — 

Death is in the air on Twitter.

On the platform Thursday evening, where #RIPTwitter was the top trend worldwide, users wrote what they feared might be their last posts, offering apprehensive goodbyes and listing the other (more stable) social media platforms where they can still be found.

They were reacting to the dire news emanating from inside Twitter. Scores of remaining employees at the social media company on Thursday appeared to reject owner Elon Musk’s ultimatum to work “extremely hardcore,” throwing the communications platform into utter disarray and raising serious questions about how much longer it will survive.

Inside the company’s Slack, a mass resignation effectively occurred after Musk’s 5pm deadline for employees to arrive at a decision passed. Hundreds of staffers appear to have called it quits, accepting Musk’s offer to exit in exchange for three months of severance.

Elon Musk has fucked Twitter.

There are two in progress.

One asserts that Musk violated Federal laws by not giving 60 days notice in the first round of layoffs.

The second asserts that the termination of all remote work violated the

accommodation clause in the Americans with Disabilities Act(s).

The previous leadership team, all "fired for cause" without severance are

mulling their options. Some may opt to sue, but many had a windfall profit on 

Twitter stock they held when Musk took the company private.

Interesting...Paraq Agrawal may have $42 million coming to him from vested stock in Twitter, so severance is not probably an issue for him and his family.

Seriously, Musk does seem to be taking damaging steps.   Alienating advertisers and users is never a healthy move.   His employee strategy has potential merits (it sucks for the employees) if he can do the same with a reduced payroll,

Elon Musk Says Twitter Will Permanently Ban Users Who Impersonate Others - WSJ.

Twitter Bans Accounts Mocking 'Free Speech Absolutist' Elon Musk

Days after Elon Musk declared that “comedy is now legal on Twitter,” the platform banned several comedians for parody tweets in which they impersonated its new owner.

Among the suspended accounts were comic Kathy Griffin and internet personality Ethan Klein, who both had verified “blue check” accounts.

“Yes, I could have ended world hunger instead of buying Twitter,” wrote Klein to his 2.3 million followers, after changing his username to “Elon Musk” and his profile picture to a depiction of the billionaire. “But people don’t understand the importance of having a free and open forum. If somebody dies of starvation in Sudan, it won’t affect the world. But being able to say the N-word on Twitter is a right we all deserve.” Shortly after the tweet was posted, Klein’s account was suspended.

“Musk went on for months about how there should never be permanent suspension,” wrote Mike Masnick, the founder of tech news site TechDirt, in response to the bans. “And here we are one week in and he’s perma-banning people for making jokes at his expense.”

Twitter banned me years ago.

I created an Avatar and stated, "I joined Twitter to troll Donald Trump."

I posted about 20 unique memes that I created to ridicule Trump (in about a week).

Then I was permanently "suspended".

They said I was suspected of being a "bot".

Elon Musk is banning anyone who impersonates him on Twitter

Racism is fine but Elon’s penis is off-limits, got   it

Ever since Musk began talking about buying Twitter, he’s been wittering on about reviewing the platform’s content moderation policy to make the platform less ‘censorious’. He’s vowed to make the site  bastion of “free speech”  and even quipped that  “comedy is now legal on Twitter” .  But now that the self-professed “free speech absolutist” is at the helm of the company, it seems that the opposite is true.

On Sunday night, he stated that any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying that they’re parody accounts  will be permanently suspended . “Previously, we issued a warning before suspension, but now that we are rolling out widespread verification, there will be no warning,” he tweeted. Suspiciously, he issued the warning after a torrent of users with blue ticks changed their Twitter display names to ‘Elon Musk’. [Emphasis mine.]

Elon Musk
New Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach. Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter. You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of Internet.
Kathie Griffin, Jorden Peterson & Babylon Bee have been reinstated. Trump decision has not yet been made.

The decision was made before Musk even bought Twitter.  

He said he wanted to reinstate Trump long ago.

Musk is just waiting for the timing to be right for maximum impact.

Musk knows that he will generate lots of new subscribers whenever he makes Trump's reinstatement announcement.

He needs some time to get the site ready for the upcoming traffic.

I understand your point, and now and then I have done the same in order to expose to the world the ignorance or malice of a commenter.  Usually I am very lenient of off-topic comments that are relatively harmless myself, but when it comes to comments that are not what this site should be proud of I will have them deleted for a reason that you are not considering.  My job on this site is to detect and delete spam and spammers, because I am notified of every new signup by new members and I review what they do.  What concerns me the most is that I see that at least 90% of those who sign up spend a short time viewing the site, post nothing, and never return, and I will put one of the causes of that to be that they are most likely turned off not only by the constant bickering, even war, between the members of different loyalties on this site but also by the ignorance or malice of some of the commenters.  We should not be enemies of each other, but somewhat like a family.  It is my desire, and I am sure Perrie's, that more who initially sign up become decent active participants, but sadly, I understand why they don't..

Bullshit. Get a clue. The only thing shaking are heads. Have you ever seen anyone screw up so badly in such a short time? People are leaving in droves. He's admitted in so many words he bit off more than he can chew. The only thing people care about is his hypocrisy. That's it. Twitter won't die. He'll hand over the reins to someone else.

I love watching all these "Social Media" Types harping about how Stupid Musk is for doing what he's doing at TWIT.

Is it an intelligent move when Musk manages to alienate his advertisers?  Apple (Twitter's largest source of advertising revenue) left Twitter.  So what has Elon ("the smartest man in the world") done to rectify the situation?  Well, naturally, Musk tweeted about the situation.

Musk has even called out Tim Cook personally to make sure Twitter loses the advertising revenue.

From October 2022:

Tesla’s one-day drop of nearly 8% Friday prompted Jim Bianco, a long-time market observer and president of the Chicago-based macro analytics firm Bianco Research, to tweet a chart of its deteriorating performance. Bianco noted that “this is arguably the most important stock” to watch as a warning that the worst could be yet to come because its wide base of fans continue to provide support, but that could change if disenchantment grows.

On Wednesday, Tesla reported third-quarter earnings with revenue of $21.45 billion that was below a consensus estimate of $21.98 billion, according FactSet. The company’s earnings per share of $1.05 topped the estimate of $1.00.

Tesla blamed the shortfall in revenue on higher costs associated with raw materials, logistics, and the strong dollar. Officials also said the company will miss its goal of boosting vehicle deliveries 50% by year-end 2022, citing production problems at new plants in Texas and Berlin. Analysts remain concerned the delivery delays, coupled with shorter wait times for Tesla vehicles, might reflect weakening demand as recession fears mount . [Emphasis mine.]

Musk acknowledged he was overpaying for Twitter but said the long-term potential of the social media platform outweighed justified the price.

Elon Musk's California Hyperloop test tunnel dismantled, to become parking spaces

Elon Musk's Hyperloop test tunnel has reportedly been dismantled. 
The futuristic project near the SpaceX office in Hawthorne, California, has been indefinitely shelved, according to Bloomberg. 

Through Hyperloop, Musk is seeking to revolutionize transportation by sending passengers packed into pods through an intercity system of giant, underground vacuum tubes. According to Musk's The Boring Company, the high-speed transit system would carry passengers in the pods at more than 600 mph.

Precision Construction Services was responsible for everything inside the prototype tube, including the light and aluminum track.

Precision's owner, Erik Wright, learned the tunnel's fate via text message a few months ago, Bloomberg reported.

Oft accused of inheriting dirty apartheid money from his millionaire South African parents

Since at least 2018, a rumor has been shared online about Tesla CEO and Twitter owner Elon Musk in regard to his father's purported past ownership of an "apartheid emerald mine" or "slave emerald mine." The gist of the claim was that Elon's father, Errol Musk, who reports say has been estranged from his son for some time, owned an emerald mine during apartheid in South Africa, and that it was seed money from his father's wealth from the mine that made it possible for him to become the American billionaire he is today.

Here's a summary of our findings: We located reporting from as far back as 2009 and 2014 that said when Elon Musk ("Elon" herefafter) was a child in South Africa in the 1980s, his father ("Errol" hereafter) at some point owned "a stake in an emerald mine" near Lake Tanganyika in Zambia , not South Africa. Beyond that, we were unable to find any evidence that showed money generated from his father's involvement in the mine helped Elon build his wealth in North America.

It seems that Musk's egotistic bravado in making such a stupid mistake only proves that he's by no means the great savvy businessman he thinks he is, and thinks everyone else see him as such as well.

The first thing one should learn when buying a thriving business, is not to piss off the ones that are the backbone of the business. 

I think Musk will find it hard to regain those whom he has so egotistically thumbed his nose at. None of the Technicians he has so stupidly fired, or those who have chosen to leave on their own due to the ridiculous rules Musk has set up, will not find it hard to get another job in their chosen profession. While on the other hand, Musk may find it hard to replace them given his heavy handed and insulting attitude toward his current employees. He may be hard pressed to even find any Janitors to keep those empty offices clean.

It will be interesting to see how long it will take to save his newly acquired business, or if it goes under.

What’s even worse is the piece of shit who is in charge now did this, while choosing a bitch who was locking up minorities for pot while getting high herself.

White House staffers asked to resign or work remotely after revealing past marijuana use

while choosing a bitch who was locking up minorities for pot while getting high herself.

Who are you talking about? The article you linked states that those that resigned or chose to work remotely voluntarily admitted marijuana use. 

From your article: 

Several White House staffers were asked to resign, were suspended or are working remotely after revealing past marijuana use during their background checks, sources familiar with the situation tell CNN. Five people are no longer employed at the White House, while additional staffers are working remotely. In many of the cases involving staffers who are no longer employed, additional security factors were in play, including for some hard drug use, the official said. 

Further from your article:

The White House underscored on Friday that it has eased some restrictions in its security clearance policy to be more lenient about employing individuals with a history of drug use.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki tweeted on Friday that the White House "worked with the security service to update the policies to ensure that past marijuana use wouldn't automatically disqualify staff from serving in the White House."

"As a result, more people will serve who would not have in the past with the same level of recent drug use," she added. "The bottom line is this: of the hundreds of people hired, only five people who had started working at the White House are no longer employed as a result of this policy."

It's ridiculous to assume "a bitch" was locking up minorities for pot. Each state has a cannabis law on their books. The police in each jurisdiction make arrests according to state law. Who's the bitch you reference that has so much sway that she alone locks up minorities for pot consumption while getting high herself.

The police can’t lock people up, prosecutors can and the stupid bitch is Harris, who has prosecutorial discretion and still locked minorities up for pot use while doing Willie Brown for personal gain.

That is Musk's MO...he goes into a project full speed, but, quickly gets bored with it, sluffs it off onto someone else and goes in hunt of another project. If it is run successfully he takes all the credit. However, if it does not work out well after he abandons what is left of it he then blames everyone else.

Supposedly China considers Tik Tok to be an enemy of young minds and

I guess when NV went down I opened a Twitter account because they keep emailing me about 3 new messages in some thread so once Elon started laying people off I figured out how to get a new password to log on so I could figure out how to close that account.

It isn't intuitive.  Eventually I queried the internet and the Twitter help feature.

When I eventually arrived at the "exit interview" there were only 3 choices in a pull down menu 

and only one worked.  That twitter wasn't available in my area...

LMAO! It has long been my thought that Musk is not all that intelligent himself, he just surrounds himself with people who are, and who can make him look that smart.

INHO, what is happening with Twitter is showing just how lacking he really is. To try and bully those who are much smarter in the project he bought himself into, which had been a successful and profitable organization when he bought it, and see how quickly it has fallen since he took it over.

He is nothing more than a rich boy who makes babies with various women yet has no interest in being a Father to them. And he and goes around playing in this project then another, and when he gets bored with them he hires the experts to make them a success and claiming all success for himself.

However, his immediate bullying and threatening of a very successful staff has backfired on him, and his decision to bring Trump back very well may have even worse results. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

I think the more than one side thing was learned by me on my first day in law school.  The dean of the school gave us our first lesson, and in it he said that if we could not understand and argue our opponent's side of an issue as well if not better than our own we might just as well walk out that door right now and never come back.  

I sure miss Paul Harvey and his "The Rest of the Story" program - he told the "other side" very well.  I lost a friend on this site because I was not in lockstep with his attitude about something, but so be it.

You're right.

His mom was a US citizen but she didn't file the form required to make Cruz a citizen.  She brought Cruz to the US when he was four years old.

So Cruz was automatically a citizen because he was born in Canada.

Cruz was too stupid to realize he had dual citizenship (even though he was a Harvard educated lawyer).

Cruz finally renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2014.

Ted Cruz: Canadian No More

The senator has officially ditched his Canadian citizenship.

By Andrew Soergel  June 11, 2014

Calgary-born U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz received official notice Tuesday that he had successfully renounced his citizenship from Canada.

“Being a U.S. Senator representing Texas, it makes sense he should be only an American citizen,” spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said in an email to The Associated Press.

A letter addressed to Cruz, R-Texas, from the Canadian government said he had “formally renounced Canadian citizenship and pursuant to the Citizenship Act [ceased] to be a citizen” on May 14.

Cruz, 43, was born to an American mother and a Cuban father in Calgary, Alberta. The potential Republican presidential candidate automatically became a U.S. citizen at birth, but under Canadian citizenship laws, he also became a citizen of the Great White North, according to The Dallas Morning News .

Cruz reportedly was surprised to discover that he maintained dual citizenship when The Dallas Morning News broached the issue in August 2013.

“Because I was a U.S. citizen at birth, because I left Calgary when I was 4 and have lived my entire life since then in the U.S., and because I have never taken affirmative steps to claim Canadian citizenship, I assumed that was the end of the matter,” Cruz said in a statement at the time, according to CNN .

He should have renounced his Canadian citizenship the day he decided to enter politics

Cruz has lots of should haves. He should have stayed in Texas instead of fleeing to the Mexican warmth while Texans froze to death in some instances and were without water or electricity. He should have avoided fist bumping his equally disgusting colleagues regarding the military burn pit legislation.

However, in a stunning floor vote on Wednesday night, the Senate fell four votes shy of passing the legislation that had been at least two years in the making by Montana’s senior Sen. Jon Tester. Tester, chairman of the Senate Veterans Committee, and Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kansas, had worked together to find an acceptable bill that would garner enough support to clear the Senate’s 60-vote threshold, and June’s previous vote seemed to have demonstrated more than enough support.

Like many Republican chicken hawks (and their fearful leader,Trump), Cruz pretends to support the military while screwing the veterans.  Cruz, like Trump, avoided serving in the military.

This whole thing is comical.

You got that right Ender. When Musk was an immigrant, moved to California at 24 and took electric cars from a political statement to a status symbol, he was adarling on the left.

But now, because of some right wing provocative words, his climate-friendly actions are forgotten.  Some have gone so far as to vow never to buy a Tesla because of his politics.  The whole thing is indeed comical.

He is miserly when it comes to political contributions but he contributes equally.

We already discussed the rumors of his family's fortune being a benefit of apartheid which would

alienate many blacks and libs.

He might be a fan of the anti oil industry club but Tesla EV battery manufacturing and reclamation

is not a fan of most environmentalists who tend to be left leaners.

Ditto with Solar City's solar panels and roofing tiles.

The closest Musk came to be  political was briefly supporting Trump, joining a Presidential

Commission briefly before resigning over the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord.

My bride is recently retired from a Texas law firm that has no shortage of cases of labor contract

disputes involving Tesla, SpaceX and other Musk entities.  He is fiercely anti union. 

His respect for his employees and leadership contracts (Paraq Agrawal) is now on full display

After decades of Toyota rust issues, particularly the front fenders behind the wheels and the bottoms of the doors?
Lexus advertising was rolling a ball bearing along the perfect roof lines or
perfect gap between the hood and fenders; believe me, those of us who
worked for hours to make a freshly delivered American car have all four doors
open and close effortlessly or alligning the deck lids or hoods stood there
mouths agape at the factory delivered quality of Lexus bodies.  But underneath
the hood they were just Toyotas.

Toyota is the only automaker that claims that burning through a quart of oil every 1,2oo miles was "normal".

Eventually we got a recall notice IF the car was under a certain age and mileage.

We weren't.  Neither were the 800,000 other Camry owners...

My bride loves that car but in this day and age no one should be adding a quart of oil once a month.

The Obama administration loaned Tesla half a billion dollars through the Energy Dept.

One year after Obama took office, Tesla got a $465 million federal loan to design electric vehicles and build them at a manufacturing plant in Fremont, Calif. The company went public shortly thereafter, repaid the loan early , mainstreamed the electric vehicle, and now employs about 20,000 people in the Bay Area alone.

That was during to worst financial collapse since the great depression. 

The automobile bailout was much bigger.  Those loans were also repaid early and saved an estimated two million jobs.

Thanks.  I got the Sonata Eco with the the penalty dollars I got from VW for their cheating. It's a 1.6-liter turbo-four/seven-speed dual-clutch.  I had a similar transmission in the Jetta and this Eco had high torque like the diesel had.

I bought off of Carvana when that was still relatively new.  It was a good experience, but I recently discovered that even though it had a good CarFax report, it had actually been in an unreported accident and I now have a paint problem.  Not Carvana's problem but I doubt that I will ever buy used again.

''Lies Social''

Trump returning to Twitter would effectively fuck his own oxyMORONIC platform.

"Truth Social" (which is not owned by Trump) is already bleeding money despite his presence there.

Trump probably won't leave until the site gets stockholder support for it's IPO.

CEO behind Trump’s Truth Social IPO begs small investors for support: source

November 17, 2022 3:34pm

The boss of the company looking to take Donald Trump’s Truth Social app public has personally been canvassing small retail investors in a desperate bid to keep the deal alive , The Post has learned.

Patrick Orlando, CEO of Digital World Acquisition Corp. , has been picking up the phone and calling investors with as few as 20 shares each to urge them to vote for the deal, according to sources close to the situation.

Orlando — who has been forced to reschedule the vote six times — now believes he has the votes to consummate the merger, these people add. Orlando reportedly has scheduled a live interview with the IPO Edge media service for Nov. 22 — the day of the shareholder vote

Orlando previously put $3 million into the deal in September to keep DWAC from liquidating after failing to get a vote approving the extension. If he doesn’t win the Nov. 22 vote, Orlando could deposit another $3 million by Dec. 8 to keep DWAC operating another three months as it waits for SEC approval to buy Truth Social.

If the deal is approved by shareholders and the SEC finally clears it, it will infuse the money-losing social network with $1.25 billion in cash. Voting for the deal is also in shareholders’ interest: DWAC’s shares are trading above $20 and they would receive just $10 each if the deal is liquidated.

It’s in Trump’s interest, too: Faced with a Twitter ban and increasing disinterest from TV networks, Truth Social may be his best platform as he mounts a 2024 presidential bid.

Nevertheless, Trump has  backed away from promoting Truth Social’s merger . Late last year, the Securities and Exchange Commission launched a probe into whether DWAC’s founders had advance knowledge  of its target company before listing its shares in September 2021 — a violation of securities laws. Insiders believe Trump, already under investigation over the Jan. 6 riots, wants to avoid yet another fight with the feds.

That presents a tough climb for DWAC, which needs 65% of shareholders to approve extending the merger deadline.

A spokesperson for DWAC did not respond to a request for comment.

“DWAC is unlike any other SPAC out there,” Matthew Tuttle, chief executive of Tuttle Capital Management, told The Post. “Other SPACs typically have investors who know the deal inside out whereas DWAC has a majority of investors with just 50 or 100 shares.”

SPACs are shell companies that raise money in the public markets and then use that money to merge with a private company and take it public. If the SPAC can’t consummate a deal, it must return all the funds to investors.

As the clock is ticking toward the liquidation date, the likelihood of getting the deal done decreases. Trump has also previously considered merging Truth Social with other conservative “free speech” platforms like Rumble and Parler.
