The DOJ will find a way to blow this deal up. They CANNOT allow Musk to take over and expose all the shady shit that's going on under the hood.

it'll be limited by the requirement of verification, this is another step to the digital id thing

I sure wish uncle Elon could buy out the CDC and the FDA… Oh darn… I forgot… They’ve already been bought out. But it sure would be interesting to see who is pulling everyone’s strings behind the scenes…

Am I the only one that feels like we’re in a bad James Bond movie?! Something like Moonraker or such?? 🤦🏽‍♀️

The prospect of actual free speech in the avian public square... be still my unjabbed, non-myocarditic heart.

Free speech is terrifying to weak minded people with weak ideas.

If Musk pulls this off and actually lives up to his free speech comments, this will be a massive shock to the system. If he's really ambitious, he can then leverage twitter to support an entire ecosystem of free speech digital media with Substack, Rumble, etc.

I’m not convinced that this is all it’s billed to be. The “billionaire as savior” is one step away from a cult of personality.

I started worrying a little bit because every time I found someone interesting to pay attention to on Twitter, they shortly thereafter got banned. I already had a gift for blowing lightbulbs when I turned on the switch, so...

Anyway, though Elon's a villain in my books for, you know, that electric vehicle thingy and not leaving space alone, the imminent sobbing in Shrikeville's headquarters is gonna be the best entertainment in years. Really hoping he pulls it off.

cat, your writing is a fancy feast of the most felicitous feline phrases. NO NEED for opposable thumbs on your perfect paws.

I think after a decade plus of the right rolling over for the woke agenda, that the tide is shifting. More and more people are speaking up and saying "This is crazy!!". Never underestimate the R's to screw it up though.

Social media will still be a malignant cancer. But Twitter may be more benign of Elon takes the reins. I had considered rejoining if he wins the bid, but then my common sense took control. No.

I continue to be skeptical about Musk. I just saw a video that Tesla is working on “printing” mRNA vaccines … for all. It was a promotional video. And he suddenly changed his position on the cvd vx this year. It’s very suspicious. Further, the cruel experimentation done on primates and pigs for his neurallink has to make you think that there is no capacity for human feeling in this, which may be the goal - no human feeling … no feelings at all? From what I gather, it is one of the goals of transhumanism to eliminate those pesky unpredictable feelings, at least of the plebs.

I don’t care who owns it, as long as I can get my tickets for El Gato Strikes Back.

Show me a billionaire who doesn’t consider himself above the law…

And I’ll show you a mirage.
