So our little shitgibbon is trying to back out .
What happened. Investors pulled out leaving him holding a $44 billion can. People closed accounts and fled?
Whatever, I hope the cunt burns.
I thought for a minute you were talking about Edmund Muskie, former VP presidential candidate and Secretary of State under Jimmy Carter.
I guess nobody else remembers him, eh?
We will see. Read the fine print . He left himself some wiggle room to back out.
They can have each other. I wish I could say that was fine, but too many people take Twitter seriously, including the news media.
"As word spread of Elon Musk’s $44 billion deal to take over Twitter, prominent Republican lawmakers gained thousands of followers overnight, while some key Democrats lost thousands.
Nearly three-quarters – 72% – of the Republican accounts gained Twitter followers in the 24-hour span from Monday midmorning to Tuesday morning, according to a USA TODAY analysis of the Twitter followings of the official congressional accounts for 529 members of the House and Senate.
The biggest winners among GOP lawmakers were Jim Jordan, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Matt Gaetz, Kevin McCarthy, Marsha Blackburn and Lauren Boebert.
Almost all Democratic lawmakers – 268 of 270 accounts – lost followers. The biggest losers were Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters, as well as independent Bernie Sanders.
Gun control activist David Hogg and Star Wars actor Mark Hamill each tweeted they had lost several thousand followers, while the accounts of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Fox News Host Laura Ingraham gained followers.
Greene, whose personal account was permanently banned for repeatedly sharing misinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic, tweeted from her official Twitter account Monday: “Bring back President Trump. Bring back my personal account. Bring back Dr. Robert Malone. Bring back Alex Jones. Bring back Milo Yiannopoulos. Bring back the canceled nation. Bring back freedom of speech. Bring back America!”
Musk has bitten off more than he can chew.
@cath apparently Musk has backed off stating the 5% (stated) fake accounts needs to be verified. Seems there may be a bit more than just 5% fake accounts. And there is the small problem of Tesla stick tanking while a big chunk of his holdings already used as collateral for loans. LOL
I'm curious how it will unfold and how far Musk will go with the "free speech" bullshit. Every website that has tried completely uncensored, unregulated free speech has turned into a cesspool most people don't want to be around. I know Twitter and Facebook don't necessarily do enough as it is, but if it weren't for farmed out monitoring, we'd be seeing all sorts of child porn, suicides, etc. on them.
Musk wants to re-open Twitter to Trump and the crazies that supported the insurrection. That's fine. How many righties are gonna pay a fee to post on Truth Social when they can follow TFG for free on Twit?
I can't wait to see Devin Nunes in the unemployment office or back on the farm after the latest TFG scam fails spectacularly.
Probably just some loose change for ole Elon
@TotsNPears I still hope he had to give himself a pep talk in the bathroom mirror.
I'm very skeptical, but willing to wait and see what happens. If he puts TFG and other spreaders of misinformation back on, fuck him.
On the other hand, this will put all the other ring wing social networks out of business, causing TFG to lose money. So that's kind of funny.
