Sometimes we don't need to see the authentic face of the Internet.

Ironically, he is the most unauthentic billionaire who bought Twitter because he thought he could use it to influence people's thoughts especially about him and make money in the process. That also applies to Elon Musk habitually banning all criticism of him on Twitter.

His Facebook page is ran by paid moderators that pretend to be sycophants of their god. He wants to create a Trump-like cult and following. This explains his need to have so many baby mamas hoping to create some genius to justify his own existence. If he kids all turn out average, then it will indicate that a lot of his success is just affluence, luck, and deception. His ego will not accept his average nature.

We are seeing in real-time that he cannot run his own company; there always needs to be actual competent people around making the decisions which mean he is not as intelligent as he and everyone thinks. We all know if his father did exploit Black Africans during Apartheid, then I doubt he would be in the position that he is in today. That wealth got him in the door. The rest depends on his ability to lie to people like making false promises and spreading conspiracies. That is only one several similarities with Trump along with narcissism and a fragile ego.

Perhaps, but he is also very smart, innovative and resourceful. He's achieved much.

I quite like the fellow. He's in new territory here on twitter, in a place he was almost forced to being in due to some rash impulses. He got a bit carried away with his wealth and cult-like status.

I wouldn't be surprised if he eventually makes a success of it. At the very least, he'll learn from it.

Or you could just ask the Muskman himself why he bought Twitter. This was cool.

Far from it, the man is a genius, Tesla, Space X, you don't become the richest man on the planet by being an idiot, the second thing is that Musk dismantled the Dems and Anti-American regulating speech police that tried and almost got away with it. Now that conservatives are not and cannot be kicked off of the largest social media platform for whatever nefarious reasons they feel they need to silence you on, is just the best thing that Musk bought the company and now everyone is treated equally and can say whatever they want and whenever they want. Pure Genius.

I agree. He also wants the best for humanity, and bought Twitter/ X for the purposes of fixing the corrosive effect on society; clearly not for money, as it was a failing business.
