Yeah: you're a gullible idiot who believes this snake oil salesman cares about free speech.

Musk, Dorsey, Zuckerberg, Bezos, Theil, all these guys and their ilk should be taxed into oblivion, their wealth redistributed and, ideally, forced to beg on the street like dogs.
Get professional help.  Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Nope, just looking for more fairness and transparency.  Nobody said anything about a Messiah.  It's hilarious that this billionaire owning Twitter is THE END OF THE WORLD, but it's ok for other billionaires to own other media outlets.  Nobody says anything like what's being said about Musk buying Twitter.  Jeff Bezos can buy the Washington Post and nobody says bubkis about it.  You're all hypocrites.

Every dictator in history got the job because they convinced enough people they were a Messiah. Who said it's OK for other billionaires to own media outlets outright. Rupert Murdoch is a poster boy for what is wrong with that. I don't think billionaires owning big media outlets is a good thing but you seem to think it is. Bezos bad, Musk good. What could lead you to that conclusion other than Musk is telling you what you want to hear?

No, that's completely incorrect.  Like I've already said, your Messiah talk in nonsensical.  I certainly don't think he's some kind of Messiah.  Again, you're incorrect, nobody said much at all about billionaires owning media until Musk sought to buy Twitter.  Then all of a sudden it became an issue.  What was nice about the internet is that it gave everyday people a voice separate from the billionaire media owners.  Musk is looking to restore a bit of that balance by lessening censorship and making algorithms public.  I'm not sure why that bothers you so much.  That point of view is also nonsensical.

Anyways, on to real substance.  Iíve had enough of you hypocrite complainers.
People having to tweet not hiding behind a fake identity would definitely cut down on the abuse thatís currently rampant on Twitter.

This thread is dedicated to all things Elon Musk.  He's probably the most influential person in the world today.  He's a proponent of free speech, developer of electric vehicle technology, and a researcher and developer of space exploration.  All things that are significantly important to our society today.

If you rode his dick any harder you'd be his next ex-wife lmao.

Your self-awareness is on par with your reading comprehension skills which is to say non-existent.

Its not a bad idea.  Not sure how you confirm a real identity though.  Also it sounds kinda like FB.  The reason twitter is fun is because I can mouth off and nobody knows who i am, just like here.  I don't post political opinions on FB because even many of my friends and family are too weak and sensitive for my truth-bombs.

The left should hope his bid goes through and he does this to twitter because everyone but complete idiots will be afraid to say what they really think because anyone who does that today is cancelled because they aren't PC.  Political correctness can suck my big ****!ng d!ck.
I queef, therefore I am.

You make a good point.  Its much better for the Vanguard indexing fund company to hold the most twitter stock.  It means its basically owned by anybody with an RRSP or 401k.  Twitter might turn into another mouthpiece mainstream media outlet like all the rest with a clear political bias.  Now social media platforms are going to be known as leaning right or left too?  Its so dumb.

Also, twitter sucks.  I haven't posted on twitter in over a year.  It was fun but I got suspended for offending some snowflake and to unlock my suspension i had to give them my phone number so i told them to suck my pen!s.

All these losers who convinces Musk he's so smart are the real losers here.  Dude owns an EV company thats barely made any m0ney.  He is a smart dude, most engineers are, but he's not this amazing business man.  He seems like a bit of an arse.

 I just don't know what Kool Aid some people are drinking that makes them think Musk will be the saviour of free speech. He is noted for and treads a fine line between business and stock manipulation in the past. He is a smart guy but a manipulator and I don't understand why so many are putting blind trust in this guy. When it comes to dumb tweets, Elon is right up there himself.

I somewhat agree.  Social media is seen by some as almost a type of public utility, and should be treated as such.

It does better than that.  But the real value is in their research and development of battery technology.  Also, you seem to be downplaying what SpaceX has achieved.  But yes, Elon Musk is a bit eccentric at times, but most billionaires etc are.  So are professional athletes, movie stars etc.  It doesnít diminish what heís continuing to accomplish.  Heís also kept the internet up and running for Ukraine during the Russian invasion.

Itís not about Kool Aid.  But if he does what he says heís going to do, Twitter will be a much freer place.  I still donít know what you have against algorithms made public.  Isnít more transparency better?  But if you really want to get into a discussion of Kool Aid, look no further than the Trudeau cult.
