"Most of these 'top' accounts tweet rarely and post very little content," the Tesla boss wrote, captioning a list of the 10 profiles with the most followers -- a list which includes himself at number eight, with 81 million follower

He has a point.

Twitter should not be just a popularity contest like other platforms, content, regardless of quality is the point.

It sounds like he may also be opening the door to a certain prolific poster on Twitter who was banned..

Twitter as we know it is dead, he killed it and not soon enough.

Monday's headline.

" Twitter share price plummet, as nervous investors pull out"

Tuesday's headline:

"Elon Musk, "saves" Twitter form stock price collaps, buying up another 42% of the share giving him 51% controling shares"

He is really good at causing prices of things to go in an advantageous way for him.

Yes he is just driving down the shares so that he and his friends can buy more.

and yes as long as half the USA can be banned forever at anytime, yes Twitter is dying.

so yeah that is happening ar some point once the price is finished being driven down.

No, it should not. He's got the very successful Truth Social, which he posts on every single day since he's so proud of his creation. And terrorists should never be given a free platform to spread their hatred on.

If Twitter is dying, it's because it was a disease to begin with. Facebook would currently be where MySpace and Mixi are if it had not bought out most its competition and then killed the rest illegally. They were smart to sell off a big part to an eager fool like Musk, and Musk will pound the nails in the coffin far faster than they're going in otherwise.

Twitter is for twits.

I also agree that Twitter HQ should be turned into a homeless shelter.

Elon has the best ideas, doesn’t he?

More doesn’t mean better. Musk clearly doesn’t realize that. The guy just spews garbage from his mouth all day long.

Twitter has been dead to me for over a decade:

$ ping twitter.com

PING twitter.com (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.029 ms

I literally can't get there from here. Same for FB and the 400+ domains they own. Dead to me.

Musk might be rich but he's a dork.

Musk might be rich but he's a dork!

Unfortunately for the US, Musk is a smarter version of the criminal trump. We will see how many politicians he begins to openly purchase in the next few years.

Yep I’m in for 10,000 shares at the right price. Musk will turn this cesspool around by end of year.

If it looks and smells like it you probably don't have to taste it to know it's....

Censorship

Hypocrisy

Toxic atmosphere
