Watching a 4chan troll evaporate $44 billion has never been more entertaining
There are two components to Musk’s catastrophic behavior regarding his acquisition of Twitter. The first is intentional. Elmo is a pro-Putin 4chan troll and his ultimate goal is owning libs and creating anarchy. So he loves all the hand-wringing and chaos.
However, he also has $44 billion at stake, and a lot of it isn’t his. That’s a lot of money, even for Elmo, so it stands to reason he would try to not burn it all in a bonfire right from the beginning. And yet… that’s precisely what he’s done.
Twitter has two main sources of revenue — advertisers and Twitter Blue.
Elmo managed to kill both in a single day. After a comical “town hall” that was supposed to reassure advertisers, half of Twitter’s executive team quit, including the head of “Trust and Safety” Yoel Roth — who was assigned to lie about how safe and friendly Twitter is now. 🤭
Then this morning, the much advertised “$8” blue check system was shut down.
Maybe temporarily, but that’s the point… who fucking knows? 🤷♂️
Elmo is manifestly unqualified for any position of authority. He has no empathy, no shame and feels no responsibility to anyone but himself. He’s a carnival barker, a charlatan, and a clown whose way was paved by Peter Thiel, Dana Rohrabacher and Vladimir Putin.
This morning Elmo is just straight up talking like Q:
That’s not to mention the blatant and numerous appeals to neo-Nazis, including posting a picture of a Nazi soldier, spreading white nationalist 4chan memes, and his constant interaction and validation of neo-Nazis like Cernovich, Posobiec, Ian Miles-Cheong and countless others.
You see, Elmo wants you to believe this is all part of his big, big plan to make Twitter more exciting! LOL.
Musk is a bright, antisocial, 12-year child on the autism spectrum with hundreds of billions of dollars, a 4chan habit, and no adult supervision beyond Putin.
Good times. Everyone get a Mastodon account and follow me please. :) @firstname.lastname@example.org
Elmo won’t like it. 😬😅
