Im not sure if Im really glad we no longer have duels, or really sad we no longer have duels. Pistols at Dawn for ownership of Twitter seems like the natural conclusion.

Musk cited possible “World War III” as reason to break Twitter deal, text shows | Ars Technica

Quote:
Two weeks after Elon Musk made a commitment to buy Twitter for $44 billion, he wrote in a May 8 text message to one of his Morgan Stanley bankers that he was thinking of exiting the merger agreement due to the possibility of World War III.

"Let's slow down just a few days. Putin's speech tomorrow is really important. It won't make sense to buy Twitter if we're heading into World War III," Musk wrote to Morgan Stanley's head of global technology investment banking, Michael Grimes. Twitter lawyer Bill Savitt read the text out in a court hearing yesterday, multiple news reports said.

Twitter deal back on, at the original price inflated by Elon just to hit a 420 meme, but its not his yet.

As with everything Musk, hes promising big but with no real idea of how to get there. If Musk has his way twitter will be *the* central social platform everyone uses, it will cost money to join, and/or tweet, while at the same time processing transactions and taking a small cut, like Paypal/wechat, while also allowing all speech that isnt illegal with little to no moderation.

For some reason white supremacists think the general population will pay for the ability to hear white supremacists angry rants.

This is absolutely going to break twitter as we know it.

If Trump and other white nationalists get reinstated, I'll leave Twitter. I can figure out some other way to have a parasocial relationship with the podcasters, journalists and scientists I follow. Maybe I'll actually talk or write to my friends again.

Returning to the OP in a tangential not about Elon Musk sense, I suppose any trending tags will do?

I only used Twitter to follow news, but just deactivated my account. I guess I'll have to learn to use fucking reddit or something now.

Reddit seems to go out of the way to be difficult to use. Potentially useful replies hidden under "more comments", half the screen taken up with unrelated threads. Does it need customising? Is there a dark art?
