I'm not a Republican or a Democrat. I'm an American.

I'm not a Conservative or a Liberal. I'm an Individual.

I'm not on the Right or the Left. I am Free!

I hate to disappoint you, but the Great Pumpkin has said he won't be rejoining twitter - preferring "Truth" social over Twitter. Then again, that could just be more BS from the Great Pumpkin.

EDIT: FTFY
Don't kid yourself. Thanks to Elon the beautiful people are returning to Twitter.

Uh Huh. He's restoring free speech - as long as your free speech does not represent an opinion against him.
LOL! Your opinion is not supported by any merit what-so-ever. There's a difference between one of his employees arguing with him(which is a form of insubordination and fireable offense in ANY company) and normal user expressing their perspective.
BTW - that's not "free speech" its Musk approved speech.
Restoring a user who was banned because of cancel culture nonsense using a vote is bad how?
There is a difference - just in case someone needs to explain it to you.
Oh gee wiz, can you teach me, pretty please?

Nope. He's trying to support his business. Trump's followers were in the millions, imagine that traffic back on Twitter. I love how people are always played and blindsided by idealisms, while it's simply a question of money.
You seem to be reading into things a bit to hard. While I'm sure twitter won't mind the return of all those extra users, that was not the underlying motivation.

I assume everybody knows that and hence, this was my point, he will only make polls when it suits him.
Oh please. Musk made the poll to illustrate a point and to serve a specific purpose. It was not for self-agrandizing nor for ego-stroking.

And you would know because you're friends and he told you so. I can only agree freedom of speech is good for Twitter business and the woke agenda is not.

I take it you're looking for a social media platform that offers a safe place aka echo chamber.

The question is that Musk is showing everybody that he is going to make Twitter function the way he want no matter the cost, don't giving a f* about anyone. I won't be silly to believe that the others socials don't function like this, but at least they still pretend to care about anyone's value...

A "social network" should enable people with different views to have a place to talk. Obvious that's becoming an utopia that socials are fast leaving behind, but Musks acts that only is going faster away from this "let's unite people" ideal, it's also creating segregation and unsettling on Twitter... Musk is doing to Twitter what Trump did to USA.

Thinking about what you said... I believe Musk is the one creating the biggest echo chamber, one with 450 million voices that all agree with Musk way of viewing the world.

I don't want echoes, I want a place where I can lay my arguments and have a polite discussion with civilized people.

I read your post twice and am still trying to figure out what your point is. The best you can hope for is a social network that is open speech as much as possible within certain guidelines. Do you think pre Musk Twitter was better? What you describe is never going to happen so maybe social media is not for you.

I don't think pre-Musk Twitter was any better but also there's no evidence that there is will to make it any better coming from Musk, much to the contrary.

And I agree with you, you are right, social as it works today is not for me.

Come on Donnie! Democrats, most independents and many Republicans want the whole world to easily be able to hear your bullshit again!
Now I can have my daily TrumpTainment back! I missed covfefe!
No, he's cleaning house at twitter and restoring free speach the democratic way. Musk couldn't be more American with his actions. The real fools are those who fail to understand this very simple point.
Egotistical maniac removing whoever he dislikes and adding whoever he likes. Murrrrrrrrrica. Muh freedumbs.
Let's go fire employees via tweet in a few words. For fun!

For decades, the right always made fun of the left for one major thing. They said the left was too fractured. That they all had their own thoughts, and they stubbornly stuck with them and couldn't even unite for the sake of the party or for elections.

Then geniuses of the tRUMP party come along and start to say it's the left that resides in the
"echo chamber", despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.
Its the childishness known as "rubber and glue" the right has perfected.

Congrats Alaska, you have been well programmed.

"Show me on the doll where Musk touched you"
I would bet Musk touched him on the crotch. Probably in an airport.
I mean, he does claim to be republican after all.

Kind of like creepy pedo Joe Biden that likes to get touchy feely with anything young female in public. I mean really you can do better than that even for a democrat.

Which lie are you falling back on?

"Biden kissed young girl"?

Here. Let's cover it in one swoop, so you can go on lying. Being a trumper, I mean, of course.

"Social media users claim that Biden is a pedophile. There is zero evidence — no accusations, testimonies, arrests or investigations — that gives this claim any credibility.
Photos that supposedly support the claim are taken out of context or have been directly contradicted by the families involved."

The whole Country already knows that. Except the denier liars.

So let me help with your upcoming whine episodes.

I never saw him kissing little girls/young women only getting way to close and uncomfortable touching...I mean really creepy! Maybe that's the dementia?
