    I hope he makes better Bots.  Maybe he can leverage his Tesla Auto-Pilot software.

    Since you aren't a Twitter user what do you find alarming?

    I'm not sure there's anything to be alarmed by, it's not like social media platforms have ever facilitated the genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, for example.

    I just read that in a Vice News article.  That was eye-opening.

    Yep.  This book is worth a read if you haven’t discovered it yet:

    Was not even aware of this book, just dropped an Audible credit on it.  Will listen soon.  Thank you.

    Because I know so many people whose only world awareness/new source are  things they see/read on twitter.

    Another sobering read on social media. I read it and did exactly what the title suggests. This is the book that inspired “The Social Network” movie. The author is a pioneer of Silicon Valley, The Godfather of VR and has worked with or been on the board at many of the influential social media/tech firms out there. He does not have social media. Available in audio as well.

    Are smoking and grilling forums considered social media?

    The difference between the BGE forum and Twitter is pretty easy to figure out.

    One is dominated by an egotistical, supposed "genius" with a god complex and one is run by Elon Musk. 
    As the leader of this cabal, I approve of this message.

    Maybe he plans to hire his multitude of children to run it? That has worked out SO well in the past.

    Musk comes across as a very insecure person despite his incredible achievements.  He can't just go about his many businesses but has to create dang near daily "look at me" publicity.  
    As has been said, publicity is better than no publicity but when is enough.  For him, there is no end-point.  FWIW-

    Seems like all the snowflakes are leaving Twitter….they can’t stand free speech and not being in control of the narrative.  Musk doesn’t really care about that crowd.  Don’t let the door hit you in the a$$. LOL
    Makes me think this forum may move in another direction in another 7 days, when the mid-term results are tallied!  Some of you Twitter followers may not like the new format!
    JIC won’t like it for sure, and hopefully he quits posting Twitter links in the off topic section.  If we wanted to read Twitter, we would have an account. Stupid to keep imbedding those Twitter links. Sheep fodder to say the least. 
    John will not like the direction Musk takes with Twitter going forward. It won’t remain a left wing liberal anti Trump socialist forum.

    "activist Jameela Jamil, activist Shaun King, comic book writer Erik Larsen, wrestler Mick Foley and others" .... Yup, leaving in droves.  Real big names.  Imagine being the "others" in that list of ballers!!

    Free speech is as much choosing to leave as it is staying and saying what you want.  Twitter has always had all sides, that’s not going to change.  The issue has never been left or right as you choose to see the world, it’s how civil or how toxic and abhorrent it is. I guess if you don’t read it yourself, you couldn’t be expected to apprehend that.

    Consider that when celebrities leave, it’s not them being snowflakes, it’s them saying I don’t want to associate with this platform and a fair number of my fans may make the same choice. Think of it as leadership.

    "It won’t remain a left wing liberal anti Trump socialist forum."

    That statement makes it clear that you know absolutely nothing about what Twitter is, how it works, who is on it, and what actually appears on it daily.
