Yeah, like actually having to WORK at least 8 hours a day...no wine on the rooftop, no goofy coffee...actually PRODUCING something.
I think you would be surprise at how many people actually do work these days. But that wine on the rooftop, goofy coffee, etc., is a shared trait to all F-offs regardless of political persuasion - at least from my personal observations.

In fact, Musk is on film indulging in his favorite "wacky tabacky". ;)

I have to wonder why he brought that sink with him.🤷‍♂️

Like I said, I think Musk is in for a rude awakening, although, I wish him the best of luck running the company if he really did cut it down to 15 employees.

If he did, I bet the rest of them will quit unless they are gluttons for punishment.

Mybad if I didn't make it clear. This was only for employees that were allowed to QC/remove flagged posts. I have no idea if some of those 150? were laid off. Making everyone pay $8+ a month will cut out the bots/trolls substantially. I've seen quite a few "influencers/celebrities/public personalities say they will stick with twitter after the change. Only time will tell. If he is strictly trying to turn it into a profit pumping machine too fast It will either work or more likely fail.

Well, I still have to say good luck to him. IMO, the steps he is taking will turn, not that it isn't already, twitter into a :poop: storm.

Musk and his lawyers know what they're doing, this suit will be tossed in court.
I think its questionable that Musk and/or his lawyers know what they are doing. Musk probably tells his lawyers what to do and they say "Yes, Sir!" But him telling them what to do does not imply domain specific knowledge.

I think he should've at least given a month long notice so there's plenty of time to "offboard," re-organize, and give people time to find a new job. Problem is that doing that may put it at risk of sabotage, violence, etc. It's a complicated situation.
If you check the numbers, Twitter was a disaster bleeding money endlessly. This was 100% necessary and overdue.

Kind of like "a threat to democracy". The true threat comes from those that espouse this lie.

"Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty."

Describing in the very next line just exactly what you are doing is irony.

But of course in objective reality there is clearly only one major party in the USA that is consistently pushing anti-democratic measures.

Well, he EARNED it, look at his success!
If you call, spraying bullsh!t around, finding bold new ways to line his pockets with other people's money, sponging off US government's money and technology, "earning", then you;re right.

With respect to Tesla, it lost money for years. Despite that, the stock radically increased in value. When he ran out of US funding and tax breaks, he built a factory in China.

With respect to his battery, "gigafactory", that's was, in part or in whole, funded by Panasonic.

With respect to Space X, he.quite frankly, fell heir to huge amounts of NASA technology. The primary reason for that is, NASA was forced to take NASA, of the US budget.

As far as his "breakthrough, land themselves, recoverable boosters", that's his engineering staff's "triumph", not his.

The joke here is,that could have always been done, save for the fact that to save fuel for landing, you have to sacrifice payload capacity. Oh, BTW, the computers on the moon landers, were barely comparable to an Atari 800. They're much, much, better now. Do you think they helped? Because Musk didn't "invent them" either

As for Twitter, that's a deal he ran his yap about, tried to wriggle his way out of by bashing the platform, on that very same platform, found out he couldn't, then "magnanimously" offered to go through with it.

You, and many others here seem to think he's, "playing with his own money". He's not. He had to do what everybody else does, and beg for money to finance the deal.

Which goes back to what he's really the "GOAT" at, and that's taking money out of other people's pockets, and putting it into his own. In this instance though, he found he couldn't bullsh!t his way out of it, without stepping in the big pile of crap that he himself laid.

If we go back to this lawsuit, I actually think he's right, assuming that the 60 day severance was actually dispersed. As to the semantic point that, "60 days severance is equivalent to 60 days notice", that is for the courts to finally decide.

Well, I have good news and bad news for people like the Kardashian sisters. With censorship (ostensibly) removed, people will be able to call them out for what they are, lard a**ed, completely self absorbed uber b!tches, preying on their witless groupies.

Your claim implies the rest of us don't care about "other humans". Our care has NOTHING to do with the faux principals of wokism. Most of us to the right prefer to judge others by the content of their character and not by a person's superficial looks.
If you're using the term "woke" at all you are against the LGBTQ+ community.

I'm glad that you took the time to elucidate the detail, Captain. Frankly, I'm getting rather tired of pointing out the obvious. It's like talking to a 🪨

Did you just wake up to that reality? I think that pretty much defines "woke". See, here's some news for you, a lot of us care about other humans and have for many years, decades in fact. All those people who claim they "care", really don't.
I'd say the difference is more that by bragging about caring about others (even if unintentional), one exposes that they also care for themselves very much. If they're bragging not for themselves but the ideology, then instead it's more of a religion.

That's what he wants you to believe. He's controlling his narrative in ways people do not even realize.
Dude the guy is a billionaire and knows what he is doing. He has been successful in all his companies and products.

And to make matters even more funny, most "woke" and left people who all want green energy drive his cars!!!! The Irony of the hate on this man from the left side is hilarious.
