I think Musk has been the single most important individual in transforming electric vehicles from a niche product for dweebs into a mainstream commercially viable enterprise that will largely replace internal combustion vehicles within our lifetimes.  That's a very significant achievement regardless of whether you like his politics or his Twitter feed.

I donít disagree.

As for Twitter, I can only marvel at how quickly the line went from "It's a private business, they can do what they want, they have no obligation to you, go start your own platform if you don't like their terms of service!" to "This is the Marketplace Of Ideas, it's a vital platform for public discourse, it's too important to be controlled by a narcissistic oligarch!"


I canít believe people want Twitter to become more of a cesspool free-for-all racist platform more than it already is. 

The sooner the oligarchs with a political agenda buy up social media, the sooner people will realize that maybe social media isnít all it was made out to beÖ.  A lot of people (MH?) seem to think social media democratized the little people, when in reality, it helps spread false information, often by government actors like China and Russia, that has hurt western democracies.

*note:  the word c-r-a-c-k-e-d is banned on this platform.   LOL. WTF???
