"the Elon" is an odd coincidence.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/may/14/wernher-von-braun-former-ss-officer-nazi-us-space-programme-nasa-apollo

Basically, the Nazi rocket scientist (Wernher von Braun) who architected Apollo 11 for the USA to take our astronauts to the moon had written a science fiction book in 1949 in German. It wasn't published then. In 2006 it was translated to English, and finally published.

Basically, a future USA finds signs of intelligent life on Mars, so they send an expedition to investigate. Martians, who live underground, welcome them and are very advanced. Their leadership is 10 men, and one super wise man at the head of them. The head guy of the martians is called "the Elon".

What are the odds? Maybe this isn't so unlikely depending on the meaning of the name "Elon", or some history of the name which I'm not familiar with.

twitter isn't worth billions. It's fucking MySpace 2.0 already banned in Russia, China to follow if not already banned there.

it's worthless.

Every Western social media has been banned in China for many years already. And Russia... who the fuck cares about that midget if a media market? Their whole population is what - 140 million? Substract these still shitting in a hole in the ground (1/3), pensioners with mere 20 bucks per month to rub together (another 1/4-1/3), hopeless alcoholics and FAS-suffereng retards and who the fuck would even bother doing media business there?

Whatever Twitter problems are, being not big in fucking Russia is the least of them. If it even registers on their radar at all.

'Twitter does not believe in free speech': Undercover Project Veritas recording reveals Twitter engineer saying platform censors the right but NOT the left, everyone who works there is 'commie as f**k' and they 'hate' Elon Musk
Project Veritas have published a secretly recorded conversation with a Twitter engineer admitting the company has a left-wing bias
Siru Murugesan, described by Project Veritas as a senior engineer at the company, said it was 'commie as f***'
He said many employees were angry and worried about Elon Musk's takeover of the company, and 'did all we could, to like revolt against it'
Murugesan said that Twitter had operated an extremely left-wing, lax culture where people could take any time off they wanted and not worry about profit
He told the undercover operative that there was 'bias' against conservatives, and said: 'Twitter does not believe in free speech'

Elon is saying that if you just view things in chronological order, a lot of Twitter's power to influence you goes away.

A 2021 study backed by the German government found that solving the huge issue by 2030 would actually cost around $330 billion, which is around $65 billion more than Forbes estimates Musk's net worth to be as of April 26.

But that didn't stop several other tweets calling out the businessman from going viral on his newly purchased social media site.

"Remember like two weeks ago when Elon was like 'tell me how to end world hunger and I'll do it' and then he bought twitter for $44 billion instead," one person wrote, while another tweeted, "Elon Musk to everyone: 'screw world hunger, I'm buying Twitter.'"

However, others had the businessman's back, with some pointing out that Musk can do whatever he likes with his own cash.

The buzz

Elon Musk — over Twitter, of course — said that his offer for the social-media service TWTR, -8.18% cannot move forward until the company provides more details on the proportion of spam accounts. CEO Parag Agrawal says he’s confident that spam accounts represent less than 5% of the user base, and the company said it was ‘committed to completing’ the $54.20-a-share deal in a proxy statement.

Separately, Musk may be selling shares in SpaceX to help fund the bid, the New York Post reported.

Looks like not ever. Musk is saying he won't buy if they don't reveal their bot numbers. See my comment in another thread, this was all show to get some more laws passed restricting free speech.

Elon Musk is NOT your friend.

Elon Musk Says Twitter Must Prove Bot Claims for $44 Billion Deal to Proceed.

Billionaire now says he won’t move forward otherwise - Musk stokes speculation he may walk away from a deal

Elon Musk declared he won’t proceed with his $44 billion takeover of Twitter Inc. unless the social media giant can prove bots make up fewer than 5% of its users, casting yet more uncertainty over the deal.

The billionaire tweeted “this deal cannot move forward” unless Twitter provides proof of its claims, reiterating his own view that the ratio is far higher.

Musk’s latest online pronouncement complicates an already chaotic takeover, potentially one of the largest acquisitions the internet industry has ever seen. He recently butted heads online with Twitter chief Parag Agrawal over the way the social media giant accounts for bots, stoking speculation Musk may try to lower the price or even walk away.

Twitter’s shares fell another 3.2% in pre-market trading in New York, after sliding more than 8% the previous day. The spread between Musk’s offer price of $54.20 and its last trading price is currently about 40%, suggesting investors think there is little chance the deal will get done without a discount -- if at all.

Saw a post from someone who went from 90,000 down to 50. Coupled with this loss, they also realized the majority of their "interactions" on twitter have for years been with bots.
People don't tend to radicalize without an extreme stress(see Middle East), or lots of encouragement. If the government designs tons of bots to support extremist viewpoints, people become more likely to do things in public they wouldn't otherwise consider. Now these people are in the minority, but if government can martial a group of them to start going after us...

Followers can be bought through companies. They go for something like $1 to $2 per follower (precovid prices)

Twitter is idiotic.
410   AmericanKulak   2022 May 17, 1:01pm  

Elon Musk is revealing one of the Deep State's main mechanisms for changing society by manufacturing fake consent.

Like I said, the disappearance of comments in Western news sites - while other country's papers have rich comment sections - all at the same time, claiming budget - is a huge red flag. And often, the comments are selective - they're on for dumbassery like celeb gossip, but off for anything political or social, like Groomers in Schools.

They're claiming budget because nobody reads them any more.

OLD people still go to these sites. That's about it.

They are far less effective at manufacturing consent than they used to be, and they know it - that's why we have a Ministry of Propaganda now. It's not going to work, but it will get worse and more desperate before it gets better.

'I think it's just like the environment, like you're there and you become like this commie.' Murugesan said that right-wingers were openly censored.

'Ideologically, it does not make sense like, because we're actually censoring the right, and not the left,' he told the undercover reporter.

'So, everyone on the right wing will be like, 'bro, it's okay to stay, just gotta tolerate it.' 'The left will be like, no, I'm not gonna tolerate it. I need it censored or else I'm not gonna be on the platform.

'So, it does that on the right. It's true. There is bias. It is what it is today,' said Murugesan.

Musk himself has frequently complained about a left-wing bias on Twitter, noting that right-wing figures like Donald Trump and Steve Bannon are banned while extremists on the other side are allowed to remain.

That Calvin Klein ad was real? I thought it was a parody?

Clown world indeed!

And of course... Scott Pressler on the spot. Love that guy's enthusiasm and work ethic.

TSLA removed from the SP500 ESG index (environmental, social, and governance investing) by wokers. They say because tesla has had some claims of racial discrimination, and some car crashes, so they booted it.
https://www.reuters.com/business/sustainable-business/tesla-removed-sp-500-esg-index-autopilot-discrimination-concerns-2022-05-18/

1 month ago I think it was Exxon that banned divisive flags, including pride flags, from company flag poles, which made wokers reeeeee. But exxon, the evil oil giant, is still better than elon in their eyes, because NOTHING can compare to the damage that the Elonification of twitter will do to the left.



Elon is on such a roll. He's shining more light on leftist hypocrisy and propaganda than anyone else right now.

It means a lot. Because twitter has only one fucking job, it's to spread bot propaganda. It has no value if there are no eyeballs from target countries.
Plus it's not like there are actual users in America, other than faggots who work at Twitter and millions of fake accounts.
423   AmericanKulak   2022 May 19, 12:30am  

Again, the elimination of commentary from most Western News Sites around 2013-2015 was part of the Overall Strategy to force Westerners from countless decentralized news sites, whether their Local Paper/ABC Affiliate/"Missing Link" Media or the National Papers and Networks, and onto Social Media, where the Disinfo Strategy of first Bots then with added "Factcheck" by Globalist NGOs could create the illusion of a false majority/agreement.

Damn but Alex Jones was right, down to naming his show "InfoWars"
425   Ceffer   2022 May 19, 1:09am  

Well, the dynastic Rocket Nazi spawn-boy clearly has taken his finger out of the Globalist dyke (LoL, I made a funny) and caved to the white hats. He probably decided the Globalist delusion finally was toast and has calculated the winning team. He is being directed from the Trumpian military nationalist side now, I don't think he cooked this stuff up by hisself.

Oh I see this: - yeah, that's a propagandist. It's not a person, it's either subhuman or a computer program.

Anything with is known to be bullshit. Stop pushing bullshit.

Hm, Elon thinks Yale is the epicenter?

I can't really disagree after the whole "offensive holloween costumes" ban by yale, followed by "shrieking yale girl" and a gang of entitled snowflake yale bullies ganging up on someone being reasonable, defending free speech while commit the crime of being whyte. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6ZVEVufWFI
