Robert Reich:

What ever happened to last year’s opinion?

LOL. You told people that if they didn’t like it, they should get their own Twitter, so they did. Schadenboner.

To that diminutive, bearded shithead: bitch, please. I’m no Musk fan boy, but he put his money where his mouth is, and literally bought his own Twitter. Just like all the leftist morons used as a taunt for so long.

Not only that, but in the process of so doing he has taken the company truly private such that it is no longer publicly traded. So that’s a double piss off to all the whiners and naysayers. Twitter no longer even has to demonstrate fiscal responsibility to shareholders as a privately held outfit, and therefore has no worry of activist investors or board members trying to muck up the works.

Having said all that, I do not see Elon Musk as a panacea. While he likes to claim that he’s a champion of free speech, he has openly professed other beliefs and desire to implement societal wide policies that I find morally and ethically troubling. And his complicity in pushing the EV scam just pisses me off.

So, I will reserve judgment on whether or not his takeover of Twitter is a good thing or not. Personally I think the best outcome would be for Twitter to fade away into complete irrelevance in the same way that Myspace did. I imagine it will remain a cesspool of dysfunction, even if some semblance of balance to the one-sided narrative that has prevailed there up to this point is actually allowed to take place.

We would all be much better off if the world woke up one day and decided all social media was stupid, petty, dyscivic bullshit and decided to abandon it en masse.

I don’t think so not my comrades.

If Elon has too much power, what then does Mr Reich think of George Soros?

Never mind, that’s different. I am sure.

Funny, it was all OK when Jack Dorsey owned most of Twitter…

Those people aren’t successful because they’re that much smarter, nor more ruthless, nor even because of intra-ethnic nepotism. It’s because they have selective memories and no shame.

BRD is right about Musk. He’s not Our Guy. I enjoy seeing him discomfit and enrage our enemies, but he’s still a guy with a few too many weird and bad ideas. But I’m glad he bought Twitter and is purging at least parts of it.
