smart money says he was having another "private at $420"
moment and replied to hillary clinton's tweet with something
he knew was utter trash because he thought it was a funny
troll. then, wait, shit, i'm a CEO, billions at stake here;
shit shit delete it

and hair plugs

azelia bank$ went on this instatwitter rant saying she was
over to work with grimes on music and they totally ignored
her because elon was freaking out and feeling bad about his
$420 tweet and she concludes "that's why you don't tweet on
LSD"

and reportedly he sent that tweet as his tesla was
autodriving him to the airport. that, who knows if it's
true, but i rather adore that image -- elon musk flying down
the highway in a self-driving car, tripping on acid, and
tweeting something that i'm sure was utterly hilarious to
him in that state

i dont worry about things like that,
it was owned by somebody before
and it will after.
it never was "free"
it is weird though that one person has that much money,
continuously generating more.
how long can he withstand buying himself a presidency?

the one thing about elon musk... there was some, like,
surprisingly teary interview he did with, rolling stone
maybe? and he said things like: "i'm terrified of being
alone" and "there's no worse thing than going to bed alone"
and describes how he was basically left alone in a house
growing up with a few maids whose only instructions were to
stop him from breaking things, he escaped into books, he
learned to hate being alone

then in some of his verbiage about acquiring twitter,
there's a bit like: "...humanity, whom i love" and,
actually, i believe this is genuine. musk is literally the
opposite of a psychopath: that, actually, other people are
everything to him.

but he is still a mere human, acquiring power on the level
of... he could probably declare war on russia by himself if
he were in the mood. he won't do something like that, but
all the throughput has obvious ego-distorting consequences,
even if the overall intent/character-alignment is, actually,
mercifully, the opposite of rupert murdoch. then he's a bit
too ayn rand libertarian and you can see how this begins to
get out of control and lead us to some technocratic future
where a few rich twats colonize the galaxy and everyone
interesting is left drowning on earth

scaling this down: it's cool to watch him fire twitter's
entire executive team. i mean, doesn't a part of you think:
can we do that for google next? but, hey, now what? the
answer is alright: he's calling in friends, family, to help
him storm in and analyze. network of trusted people. seems a
solid approach. but already: "we'll sell blue checks for
$20, but personally i think they're worth $2" -- again, just
super massive popcorn.gif, but, hey, now what?

Points: 19897 Status: Addict



ok, shit, i think i see his plan for twitter now

"blue checks for $20, they should be $2" -- what he wants is
to facebook-ize it, where it's Your Real Name and the fee is
trivial for the blue check so they can force everyone to get
one or be spam-filtered and... A) $2 per user over twitter
userbase willing to put up with it could indeed be profit B)
it will solve the bot problem he's been complaining about

that continuing on B) he's spoken of it being a town square,
and, yeah, he wants Your Real Name, trivial fee to keep
people from making random accounts

that what i was on twitter for was stuff like "shit my dad
says" and shit his dad says be like "it's not your backyard.
it's the dog's backyard. do you poop on the back yard? no.
if you poop on something, you own it." and now part of my
move-in routine is forever: poop in the place. now i own it

but separation of concerns, i don't think this sort of
silliness can co-exist with the all-verified town square
concept, because people can't create stupid anonymous
accounts to mock PHP bros or whatever. i guess all that shit
is supposed to go to tiktok and telegram and bleh.

i've held off on bothering but i now have a few sources of
burner numbers and if donald trump is going back to twitter,
perhaps i should too

$2 is not a trivial fee for the privilege of using a website
that's designed as a bad compulsion lol
i can't tell if he's deliberately planning to tank twitter
or if it's the normal kind of stupidity

that's exactly the point

twitter was -- is, still, on some levels -- a website
designed as a bad compulsion. but then jan 6 and it's become
a sort of town square, that i am willing to grant this.
then, though, like i said, separation of concerns -- it
cannot be both a town square and a bad compulsion,
shit-my-dad-says site. the $2 is not for the bad compulsion
privilege, because, if this goes how i suspect, that's
increasingly less what the platform will be for. instead the
$2 is a maintenance fee that is there mostly to prove you
are a single, real person. blue checks kind of like a
backstage pass now, he wants to turn it into the stamp on
your hand you get at the door. that, really, i am sad to see
twitter turn into some town hall, but it's where we've
landed and it may actually be a decent choice. but then
implementing this is a nightmare Sisyphean clusterfuck of
sub-choices and yeah, i do worry about how it'll pan out

thought you were a man of logic da fux is this all about?

"it is weird though that one person has that much money,
continuously generating more.
how long can he withstand buying himself a presidency?"

this^

"acquiring power on the level
of... he could probably declare war on russia by himself if
he were in the mood. he won't do something like that, but

where a few rich twats colonize the galaxy and everyone
interesting is left drowning on earth"

and this^ is the concern for me here. you worry about the
chinks buying and controlling stuff but if elon musk does
the same thing its somehow for the better of humanity?

here's a relevant tiktok on billionaires

it has Gates as an example. they're both bad in their own
way. but Musk is also alt right-adjacent and just plain evil
(look how he smeared a rescue worker as pedo). and yeah, you
don't want him near anything concerning free speech

re: the blue tick 8 dollar thing
he's gone and pissed off the celebrity users, the whole
point of that site is that you can talk to celebrities on
it. for a 'genius' billionaire he aint that smart.

he's gone and pissed off the staff by sacking them rudely at
3am in the morning and wiping their hard drives. what's to
stop them making a new site called "lefty" where the
celebrities and luvvies get to feel special and the serfs
get to kiss the ass of the celebs?

you just know he's going to add dogecoin payments to the
site, maybe good to buy a little bit of dogecoin in case it
goes up in value, perhaps not. elon's a cryptobro magnet.

not saying he doesn't have good ideas up his sleeve,
probably will charge money and compete with youtube and
every other major site out there.

lefty, the site where elon doesnt fuck things up!

They way I look at it is the people who are complaining
about free speech have all these things like parler, truth
social, gab etc.. where they can say Nigger or whatever to
their hearts content, the truth is they just want to go on
twitter to argue with lefty liberal types cos they enjoy
pissing them off.

Free speech is great but so is freedom of action so he is
finding out that generally people who are a bit more
mentally mature just think its a load of old bollocks are
are leaving

very few celebrities set a good example,
like ali did, going to prison instead of war.

artists can let their work speak for them and give
interviews, write books; they have a huge platform.
they dont need twitter.
but i dont need a celeb to retweet some bs,
they may have not really gotten insight of.
its way to easy to retweet with a click of a button without
really knowing the facts about a topic. it is potentially
dangerous imo and on the other hand enables idiots to gather
attention.

I can almost guarantee elon is a piece of shit to be around.
i dont think you get to be the richest man in the world
without being a piece of shit. he claims to be on the
autistic spectrum too, which seems true enough from what
I've seen.

Pedo comment doesnt trigger me, I won't even pretend I care.
If that triggers you so hard to post about how evil he is
that you make a post on xlt, you're a beta male

What I do greatly enjoy are the tears from the people who
feel personally threatened by his de-censorship, and
de-wokeifying of a platform centered around discourse. He IS
doing that, from waht I can tell, and I'm 100% behind it.
You can pretend all you want that it's just about saying
nigger, that's an easy strawman to burn.

you can pretend that woke culture doesnt exist all you want

but right now I'm playing NEED FOR SPEED: PAYBACK (2017)

Every single boss is a woman. And by woman, I mean a woke
man in a female skin with an alpha attitude. This was a
decision by committee, in order to not "offend" the people
who live on twitter and wouldnt even play the game.

The one male they added was a marxist who, in his $150,000
custom car with corporate decals everywhere, told me he
races to "fight the bourgeoisie." After I kicked his faggot
ass, he told me to "stay woke."

NFS, as a series has the best arcade racing and some of the

Yeah PC stuff can be annoying, but I don't let it dominate
my mental attention, there is so much stuff out there that I
never have to interface with all this stuff, plus
fundamentally it doesn't matter Culture will change and
morph and there is nothing we can appreciably do to alter
how other people behave. I just get on with my own life and
leave it up to them,

I've seen on social media specifically in America its a
gigantic culture war and people get majorly pissed off about
it, and spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about
it, that's their prerogative I suppose, perhaps If was
younger I'd feel like my identity and interests were more
under attack, but now I'm 40 its all starting to see
pointless to get involved, I just read a book instead.

Now If it reached the point where I was about to imminently
be dragged off an chemically castrated and made to wear a
pinny, I might have something to say, but in the main I'm
really not arsed!
