Damn. Looks like the leftist safe space might not be around much longer in its current form.

How are ISIS and pedos going to continue to operate?

Will Trudeau still be able to censor?

Lots of questions to be hashed out.

I have fully and completely hated Twitter since it launched, this does nothing to move the needle in the other direction.

It's hard to imagine twitter get worse, but I've been saying that for years now.

Well, if it turns into a broken down cesspool (more than it already is), I'm sure some tech bro will get in front of another micro-messaging social media platform to pump as the successor.

His desire to get rid of bots and ads is good.

His misunderstanding of the concept of free speech, and literally everything else about the man, is bad.

Can't wait for him to set "free speech" straight and ban all those damn leftist/socialist/communist posts that are so so false. Then re-enact Trumps profile and make it a safe haven for hate and misinformation free speech again.

This is totally gearing up for 2024. Things are going to get really nasty.

Believe it or not, Twitter was one of the only platforms to hold people accountable for saying heinous ####.

I would imagine it will start looking a lot more like Facebook.

Twitter teetering towards takeover transaction should have been the thread title you missed a massive opportunity.

While I donít disagree with your entire post, I highly doubt Musk is spending millions of dollars to buy Twitter so trump can get re-elected.

Seems a weird theory to conspire.

Musk doesn't represent humanity nor has its best interests at heart because he's hardly a human himself, so owning an influential social media giant cannot be good for humanity as a whole.

I didn't need to see Trump tweeting all in caps again for the rest of my existence, but here we are.. selling out to billionaire extraterrestials in human prosthetics who are also bringing brain chips to the market.

What could go wrong!

Guy supported the freedom convoy outright. I don't want his views anywhere near me. His 'war on bots' is pretty scary as he's sure to end up meddling
