    The best take I have seen on twitter - yet the most overlooked - is that because it is text based it has been dominated by people who are good writers. e.g journalists, pundits, activists, niche nerds etc

    The problem for Threads is Meta does not want to do news and instead is focussed on brands, celebs, influencers etc but most of that content is not text based. Few celebs are acting out on twitter main. It's all scripted content from their media teams.

    I do feel like the point of threads was more to try to damage Musk

    When I go to to bluesky I see the conversations i now remember from 10 years ago - but the scale is tiny. Like i can read my whole feed in about 3 mins

    I feel like all of the Musk dickriders should volunteer for this. Their hero is a peerless genius right? So what could possibly go wrong.

    People will pay for complete relief from paraplegia but will end up being chauffered very slowly in Teslas through tunnels.

    Now seeking human subjects. Bueller? Bueller?

    Earlier this month, Elon Musk claimed on X-formerly-Twitter that the monkeys who died during Neuralink trials were "terminal" cases "close to death already," making it clear that none of them perished as a result of the biotech company's brain implants.

    Documents viewed as part of a new investigation by Wired, however, as well as testimony from a former employee, contradict Musk's claims entirely — and the details are as upsetting as they are damning, adding to a mounting case against the safety of Neuralink's devices.

    Elon is MAGA. If he's talking, he's lying.

    The WSJ today noted that while Muskie railed against authoritarian U.S. policies for containing COVID, he didn't say boo about China's even-stricter policies. Because China has his Telsas over a barrel, should the country decide to disrupt his battery supply train.

    Something to think about the next time that Musk "tells it like it is."

    So in high drama (lol) Twitter CEO in Name only (CINO) Yaccarino shat the bed at CODE

    The Muskbois have lost their shit because Yoel Roth was also invited by Kara Swisher so now they claim CODE is finished as a conference. Elmo goons like Jason Calcanis are running around attacking Swisher who immediately posted the receipts of him crawling up her arse.

    Imagine how deeply pathetic you have to be.

    Musk has eliminated the team dedicated to stopping election disinformation.

    Musk ousts X team curbing election disinformation – POLITICO

    He is completely insanely redpilled.

    "Elon Musk, the owner of X (formerly Twitter) said overnight that a global team working on curbing disinformation during elections had been dismissed — a mere two days after being singled out by the EU's digital chief as the online platform with the most falsehoods.

    Responding to reports about cuts, the tech mogul said on X, "Oh you mean the 'Election Integrity' Team that was undermining election integrity? Yeah, they’re gone.""

    Allegedly because the head of the team liked a comment that called Musk a "dipshit". ;)

    I listened to the Yaccarino interview. Oh dear.

    way out of her depth and clearly also does not run the company.

    You realise discussing Yaccarinos made up numbers is pointless right?

    Mdau itself is largely worthless

    all the verifiable external data that exists shows twitter in the toilet
