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...

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?

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.

I only watched the posted link so not the whole of the interview. The unnerving potion for me was Elon saying he could put a rocket anywhere and no one could stop him/them. It is obvious anyone with the command of a intercontinental ballistic missile is the target picker, but saying it out loud is another thing! But for some reason , it is less unnerving that is was him saying it ,lol.

I don't think I would have the same reaction if the penis rocket guy said it.

I have always been uneasy with Elon Musk's financial ties to Communist China.

He never endorsed communism to my knowledge, but that damn money tie bothered me.

 

Well, this just happened.

Xi came to the USA and met with a ton of corporate brass, especially the leaders of American crony corporations of the Predator Class persuasion: Apple, Disney, IBM, Comcast/NBCUniversal, Lions Gate, Warner Bros. Discovery, Paramount, even the European Commission (which is not American, but still...).

In a massive suck-up to communist China, the main crony corporations halted their advertising on X in a coordinated way.

Elon is responding with a massive lawsuit against Media Matters and others, which spearheaded the boycott, but it's clear, Crony Corporate America is licking the butt and dirty boots of Xi and his communist government. They are selling out America big-time.

 

Since all this was at the behest of Xi (I can't reasonably interpret it any other way), my money concerns about Elon are no longer concerns.

I don't see him ushering America towards submission to communist China anymore, not even inadvertently.

But for the rest of those sons-of-bitches, I see it. And I'm losing interest in their products. As the saying goes, why keep giving money to people who hate you?

Wow.

Elon just told advertisers who are trying to blackmail him on X, "Go fuck yourself." 

He said that while being interviewed--I think it was a New York Time interview of some sort.

What's more, Bob Iger from Disney was in the audience, and Elon waved after he repeated, "Go fuck yourself," then said, " Hi Bob." 

The look on the interviewer's face was very satisfying...

:) 

That was so good, let's see it again:

Man, talk about a feel-good moment...

Of all of the people in the world, Liz Crokin deserves every second of this bellylaugh.

When the whole world succumbed to peer pressure and let up on Pizzagate, she carried on the fight over the years. She did not give up.

And now the whole coverup of the Pizzagate mess has exploded and the pedophiles at Disney have a big honking spotlight on them.

See for yourself: fuckyourself.com

At the time of this posting, it goes here.

I suspect X is being sabotaged. Here are a couple of posts from another thread where I looked into it.

Episode 54.

John Daly and Kid Rock.

See here on X.

It looks like X is no longer embedding in OL.

I'll try to see what to do to fix this, but if this is a new policy by Elon, X will no longer be a go-to reference for me.

Smiley is still valid, though.

Just for the record, I believe the X embeds will be fixed before long. And this is not an issue with Elon's policies.

IPB disabled its Marketplace where I bought the embed plugin and I had to find a way to contact the developer. It took some doing, but I think I found him. And I had to register a key with him. Then I submitted support requests. Let's see if this resolves soon.

Michael

 

EDIT: I just received news from the developer. This is an issue on X's end. In fact, I started looking in different places and lots of people are reporting this problem.

Here is one on X itself from a few hours ago:

The text only:

@Support The twitter embed API endpoint has been down for hours now, just showing 404. This is critcal. Nobody (News sites, blogs, ...) can embed tweets in their websites anymore. Can you at least tell us if this is being worked on?

In my view, Elon has been pissing off powerful people, so this is probably sabotage.

More later as I know about it.

Stay tuned for updates.
