Fixed that for you.

He's not a genius of any kind, and somehow has a thinner skin than even Tmurp. Shit, even the price was him being a terminally online edgelord, making sure he got the weed number in there for the epic lulz.

Carmack rates Elon. He does go on to say he worries he's stretched too thin.

Basically, sidbo, you're saying Elon's skill is building A-teams, selecting the best talent and giving them god-tier projects to work on. And then, you're putting Elon next to a literal rocket science engineer and saying "Elon is dumb because he isn't a rocket scientist!"

You're halfway to realising Elon's genius and brilliance, stop comparing him to car designers, rocket scientists, social media designers, mesh internet designers, payment platform designers,... uh tunnel diggers ...

I suppose you think Steve Jobs compares to Tony Fadell, Scott Forstall, Jony Ive?

I think he's another smart dude who has been driven insane by his monkeybrain getting addicted to social media.

He skirts the line between genius and eccentricity - which is fairly common with people with those mental resources (and deficits) available to them.

TBH compared to all the other billionaire "geniuses", at least Elon has a vision and imagination.
Not defending his crackpottery. But he's not all bad, except when he is.

Amazon becomes the first publicly-traded company to lose 1 treelion USD in value.

Amazing how all these companies that depend on digital advertising are getting reamed.

I get the feeling the rush of people eager to pay $8 to get in on the trolling action isn't going to be enough to shore up Twitter's finances.

Wait until Elon realises that account closures mean the trolls can reverse the $8 credit-card payments. Free entertainment.

So Eli Lilly's stock price took a fairly significant dive...

Unintended consequence could be though that a wider audience now know insulin was intended to be free/cheap, so stock price pressure could remain.

Some weird Musk fanboy will tell you that was part of his 7d chess plan all along of course.

Twitter resignations so far today:

- Head of Trust & Safety, Yoel Roth
- Sales Vice President Robin Wheeler
- Head of HR & talent, Kathleen Pacini
- Chief Information Officer Lea Kissner
- Chief Privacy Officer Damien Kieran
- Chief Compliance Officer Marianne Fogarty

Best line so far today:

“The Verge reached out to Musk for comment. Twitter no longer has a communications department.”

With no announcement - I guess there are no comms people any more - Twitter has cancelled $8 Twitter Blue checkmarks :
