Twitter has a new overlord: Elon Musk. After a few weeks of deliberation, the platform is now a private company owned by Musk, who bought it for $54.20 per share in a transaction valued at around $44 billion. Here’s how citizens of the Twitter kingdom reacted to the news.

One of my primary axioms in life is to never join a social media platform that begins with the word “Twit”. It speaks volumes for the target user community.
Yea, I don’t twit, myself.
If humanity survives the next few years, we may laugh at how Twitter, Faceborg, Intagram, et al. were all such laughable products of a wasteful, narcissistic, barbaric society and that they rightfully ended up in the dustbin of history!
RE end world hunger: That’s because no one was able to tell Musk how he could end world hunger. Elon Musk has tons of money. But world governments have spent many times what Musk has on programs that were supposed to end huner with little to show for it.
It’s interesting how many people think that ending censorship of opinions that conflict with left-wing orthodoxy is “destroying Twitter” or even “destroying democracy”. If your ideas are so weak that they cannot stand up against someone expressing a conflicting opinion, maybe you should get better ideas.
You don’t “end world hunger” by throwing money at government officials. If that were the formula, Russia would be out of Ukraine, Afghanistan would be a free country, and the US would be a happy, content utopia.
Musk is no savior of free speech. Here, we have yet another example of advancing technofeudalism. There is no more “left” or “right” in politics, only oligarchs buying themselves influence and all the rest of us who pay the final bill. If wokeness suits their aims, then they’re all for it. Tomorrow, fascist stormtroopers breaking down your door at 4am may suit them better.
Not familiar with The Twitter, Is it like the Audubon Society?
Never used twitter. Does this mean its done or getting bigger?
I use Twitter to insult Eon Musk until I get banned, but I won’t get banned so why insult Eon Musk or even use Twitter? I’ve decided to quit using my 3 Facebook accounts, my 3 Instagram accounts, my 2 Twitter accounts and looking at girls 50 years younger than me on Chaturbate. Now what?
