Elon Musk put his $44 million Twitter on hold this morning. In the three hours since, Twitter stock has dropped almost 8%.
Is this a game of some kind? It sure seems like it.
Musk said he was trying to verify how many Twitter uses are real or fake. Well, that has been determined, and it’s less than 5%. He knows that.
But Musk is getting a lot of blowback about his idea to reinstate Donald Trump and others who incited the January 6th insurrection. He thinks everyone should speak their mind on Twitter no matter if it’s dangerous, cruel, or fake. Let the chips fall where they may!
He’s also apparently against paper straws. In his Twitter feed he’s talked in the last day about missing plastic straws. So this brings up the question of why he invented Tesla, the electric car. Wasn’t to help the environment by ridding us of gas-fueled cars? Plastic straws and bags, etc, much as we miss them, were destroying the planet.
It’s kind of amazing that Tesla is a functioning company, that his Spacex can get a rocket off the ground given all this chaotic behavior.
Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of usershttps://t.co/Y2t0QMuuyn
