It's amazing the lack of foresight and thought that goes into these decisions with such huge ramifications.
even in this one, it’s clearly another brain blast handed down as company policy.
raw follow count seems like a bad way to choose. and who decides what counts as a “company and organization” for consideration in the first place? musk himself would hardly be a neutral arbiter
it’s just a plain ole bad idea . You can’t exempt the top 10,000… so 10,001 has to pay 12,000 a year? Good luck.
Are they even blocking at this point? Seems like they are getting tackled often
I can’t wait until Elon accidentally does something right and Whammy comes swooping down into the thread to remind us that he was right all along, only to disappear two hours later when Elon gets back to baseline.
Alright, we’re doing this!
24 hours later: Nevermind
How has he made anything in his life?
that’s the secret, he hasn’t. it’s his PR and brand on top of actual engineers’ work
He hasn’t. Up until recently, he only funded others to make things for him, and then pretended it was him. Once the myths were broken and people realized he doesn’t know shit, he could have rode off into the sunset, laughing all the way. Instead, he doubled down to show everyone he’s not an idiot and made it worse. And he’s letting it ride.
I meant make money. My mistake
Well, that ship has also sailed :)
I get people falling for Musk at first. He had great PR and it was hard to really know anything about him. But still riding with this dude is hilarious.
That shit happens to me all the time.
To name a few.
finally someone with the courage to say it
I would say Greenwald is the only one on that list Ive been bamboozled by but in my defense he is also the only one of them that actually accomplished something worthwile with his own work.
Griftopia was pretty fucking good, ironically.
It was really good but even then you could tell Taibbi liked the way his farts smelled.
What a poor way to try to build additional corporate engagement
Not to mention how often that changes in real time of who is in the top 10,000 and who falls out
If he had a less unique sounding name that didn’t sound futuristic he’d be nobody. Name him Bob Dole with the same decision making and he’s no one.
Looking forward to a bunch of troll accounts popping up once the checks get taken down by those not paying
If the government won’t give Musk money his goose is cooked
I’m willing to be the sacrifice
the book he wrote with Mark Ames is fucking gross. Bragging about raping drunk 15 year old Russian girls.
don't worry, the House Judiciary account cannot wait to pay him!
This is the biggest misstep - if you can’t figure out who’s real in Twitter anymore because they won’t pay for verification you’re going to lose attention as a platform pretty quickly
it’s so funny how he accuses everyone of having trump derangement syndrome or whatever when the don absolutely fried his brain more than anyone
Imagine having more money than you would ever need and feeing the need to bitch on social media
Okay the code says elon but that could mean anything
look we’re just very interested in tracking the engagement for a North Carolina-based liberal arts college
We’re going to release our code so you can see for yourself how fucking stupid we are.
He’s so dumb that it gives me hope.
I’m guessing the algorithm is way more complex than that, but they just threw that together real quick and put it on top when Elon had a tantrum.
He’s the fucking worst
Musk overestimated the demand for his product. There is supply but not demand. It’s simple economics shit is only worth what someone is willing to pay.
Imagine paying $23B of your own fortune just to be mocked by some of the most popular jocks in the world. Talk about being a huge fucking uncool nerd.
