Twitter is toxic, I hope Elon and company gets rid of it in it's current form.

A Saudi prince who is among Twitter’s major shareholders scoffed at Musk’s offer last week in a tweet. Al Waleed bin Talal said he would reject the overtures because he didn’t believe $43 billion “comes close to the intrinsic value of Twitter, given its growth prospects.”

I would support Musk's Twitter bid just because it displeases the Saudis..

With their capital and medieval monarchy, and basic medievalism their influence should be excised from society.

I agree. Gut it and restructure it.

Whatever Musk does, feels to me like Twitter is anyway about to get its comeuppance thru a change of regime.

He also used an exclamation point to express surprise that one board member, Robert Zoellick, a former World Bank president, doesn’t appear to have ever posted anything from his profile on the social media site.

There are a lot of world financial oligarchs collecting dividends and salaries on corporate boards worldwide.

Money for nothing.

Sometimes Musk makes a point like this or pro-UBI statement but he is quite coy about it.

If Musk intends to liberalize speech on Twitter....then God bless him even if his motives aren't all pure. (I'm guessing that he senses a business opportunity by reopening the doors to conservative people.)

Dorsey and Co really embarrassed themselves and lost a lot of people over thier obvious wokeness and unfair censorship.
