For people from the future, here are the 2 events that led to the end of this era of history:
1. Obama making fun of Trump in a standup routine.
2. A teen posting where Elons plane was on Twitter and refusing to stop.

Everything that happens around 2025 was directly connected to these 2 events.0

$44 billion in cash. Think of all the good that could have been used on fighting homelessness and poverty, funding schools and hospitals, providing food for the masses, and making the world a much better place for humanity in general.

But no. Some rich dumb rear end in a top hat uses it to buy a social media platform because his fee fees got hurt. Eat the rich.

The stupidest things possible might happen, but also I could see musk spending 44 billion just to stop that kid from tracking his plane and nothing else changing.

No matter what though humanity is turbodoomed. :sun:

Someone else can probably explain in depth but I think it's barely any cash and largely based on leveraging Tesla stock(?)

tbh if you're some kid who pissed off one of if not the richest man in arguably all of history to buy one of the biggest social media companies ever primarily to spite you instead of just hiring hitmen for a 1/100th of the "cost" to wack you and buy off the witnesses with clean hands that's a pretty good tradeoff imo

He could still do all of that poo poo and then some, regardless. He’d just rather stick it to a kid who tracked his jet plane on Twitter :lmao:

I'm not gonna pretend to know the future and prognosticate on how Twitter will fare under Elon. I have no idea.

I do know, however, that moderating a public forum is fraught with difficulties. I'll be interested to see what happens if it's true that Elon is in favor of maximalist free speech. The reality of what happens when you really do pursue that on a large public forum will be... educational?

It’s most likely Funded by an SBL. Think HELOC but for your securities equity instead of your home.
