Elon Musk and Twitter

Recommended Posts

The latest Twitter Files drop.


I am way behind in formatting these Twitter Files according to the way I started doing. This is the 4th I have yet to do.

I lost interest for a while since the Twitter Files stopped being a thing. I think I, and everybody else, was waiting for the Fauci files to drop and got tired of waiting.

And hell, even Elon said out loud (to Tucker) that it's time to move on from them.

Anyway, I'll fix this. No promises on time, though. That formatting, even with the Autohotkey routine I coded, is niggly and a pain in the ass to do. 

But I'll get to it...




EDIT: On Threadreader:



@thackerpd: 1) Twitter Files #FauciPharmaFiles Last December, @elonmusk sent out his viral tweet about Fauci. Fauci went on Fox...

There goes Twitter.

Update: Elon Musk Introduces New CEO of Twitter.. and She’s Aligned with WEF

The good thing about people who look at reality first and at actions over words is that they can keep using Twitter for a bit until it starts to turn sour. They will recognize it when it happens.

(Just like I recognized that goddamn Patriot Act for the authoritarian anti-liberty power-grab it was way back when it came out and I was still in Brazil.)

After what social media recently did to the culture, I don't think words will be able to help Twitter hide toxic anti-free-speech behavior laced with the covert command to obey the Predator Class. 

We'll see.

Color me skeptical.

Robert Barnes, as a good legal mind, looks at the other side, too.

We'll just have to see how everything pans out.

Elon did with Twitter what I never expected him to do.

That doesn't mean he will do the same with this new CEO.

But it doesn't mean he won't, either...

Why do I keep thinking about slow-boiling frogs?

This is exactly what I mean.

Notice the long silence before Elon spoke that line.

He was weighing the consequences and chose freedom of speech.

We rarely get to see the moment a person weighs a cost that heavy and chooses freedom.

This one gave me goosebumps.

Mike Banz retweeted this today, so it appeared in my feed. But it is from July 1.

The gist I get is this.

By limiting the scraping, Elon put the power of AI to support censorship in a straightjacket. And the Deep State-sponsored censorship people are having a cow.

This is one of the hidden reasons there is such a loud media campaign against Elon.

People in the Deep State, or friendly to the Deep State, own most of the mainstream media. So they put their companies to howling.

But it looks like Elon is staying the course.


I still hate that woke-ass CEO he hired. Why? Because she is doing some damage to freedom of speech. But at least she is not doing--by far--the damage that was being done under the old Twitter.
