Seriously though. It's hard to believe this isn't an intentional nosedive into the asphalt looking at the behaviour.

The plane was already going down. Hes done a big line of coke off a hostess's ass and jumped in the cockpit to save the day but the controls have come off in his hand. Now he's running down the aisle clubbing everyone with the flight controls.

At least it's being made abundantly clear who Musk really is for those who didn't know how much of which side to believe previously (the idolisers vs the haters)

Have to say his behaviour is very Trumpian.

It's like he's having a breakdown in public and burning $44 billion of investors money while he does it. Is there some timeline in which Twitter declaring bankruptcy actually helps him and the people he's borrowed money from?

How the hell can the engineering staff of one of the world's busiest services be told to down-tools for four days?

Surely Mark Twain's comment has been updated for the digital age, when one tries to out Murdock Rupert.

"Never argue with a man who buys ink by the barrel."

Anyway, I keep thinking there is the old Ghostbusters "Shut down the containment grid" GIF meme waiting to be reborn pointing to microservices, 2FA and dickless here.

Final nail?

Musk reinstates Trump's suspended Twitter account following poll


Could this take down both Twitter and the GOP?

It seems at least a sub-set of the GOP is trying to move past Trump, while others still see him as their messiah. This might exacerbate these divisions.

It could be, kids are all IVF. He's one of these weirdo billionaires that thinks because he's rich his genes are superior and wants his spawn everywhere.

TBF, it would be handy having the "daddy owns an emerald mine" gene.

A theory I heard on the "Pivot" podcast: Elon borrowed a lot of money to finance the Twitter buyout. Twitter burning is bad for those banks. The worse Twitter goes, the worse that investment was. At some point Twitter will be so shit that those banks will consider selling that debt just to get it off their books. Elon could buy that debt and thus rather than owe money to some banks he would owe money to himself (more or less). According to this theory, Elon has a short-term motivation to tank Twitter like a sports team jockeying for future draft picks. The worse Twitter goes the better this debt-buyback deal is for Elon so long as he can a) front up the money to buy the debt from the banks, and b) instantly turn Twitter around and make it generate revenue once he's bought the debt.

That's the theory, anyway.

Ah, the old "If you owe a million dollars, it's bad for you. If you owe a billion dollars, it's bad for the bank."

scoop is doing a lot of heavy lifting there.

per elsewhere:

"Hunter isn't even going to make a peep about the fact that Matt Taibbi posted revenge porn of his giant, majestic hog in a "news story," at the behest of Elon Musk.

Don Jr., however, is coked out on Twitter posting about how a private company enforcing moderation during his dad's presidency is smoking gun evidence of election fraud or some shit."

Can someone hook me up with a translation? I get some of it, but I think some is lost on me as well.

This wasn't a cover up, it was someone requesting private stolen photos be taken down. Something Twitter did regularly.

Right, right. I didn't even read it as a cover up. It read like a large, complex organisation and politicians juggling values, priorities and perceptions. I.E. a Tuesday.

May I remind you of the story at the time in October of 2020

If these "more than 50 intelligence officials" had seen the information (in order to assess its veracity) and could see it was just "private stolen photos", why wouldn't they say "there is nothing to see here but dick pics" instead of going full "Russian disinformation"? For what reason would leaked data be spun as something other than either embarrassing at best, or compromising at worst?

Does their "Russian disinformation" disinformation not strike you as some sort of deceptive strategy, particularly 2 weeks out from an election, that people might generally refer to as a "cover up"?
