    Default Twitter will become the AM radio of social media.

    I’m not at all familiar with Twitter and how they handle advertising. I’ve been reading, however, that a lot of major corporate entities are dropping Twitter from their ad budgets.

    I am familiar with AM radio, having tuned in to local sports. After the games, the right wing talkers and christian squawkers take over. The ads seem to be for gold coin dealers, supplements, “male enhancement”, pillows, and roof gutter protectors.

    Musk is headed that way.

    Didn't Rush Limbaugh start all this crap on AM radio?

    I think Rush was the first one to turn angertainment into a moneymaker.

    Sounds like Twitter is seriously crippled as it’s workforce is gutted.

    I dunno if it's a gag or not, there's apparently a lot of twitter spoofing going on, but I just read that the guy who was in charge of the pass key ID card admin was one of the folks that got canned in one wave of the big purge. Then, shortly after being ousted, he got a msg from Musk saying that in his exuberance in canning people he had inadvertantly got shut out without his own pass key ID card and needed the guy to come back to let him back in. Apparently Musk shut all the actual office buildings down.

    If it were me, I'd reply to Musk that he could get back in by first sending me a check for a billion dollars, and when it cleared, I'd meet him at the door, and for another billion I wouldn't tell anyone what a real putz he is. Musk should try to merge with Disney because he's showing himself to be a real Mickey Mouse for business.

    Given the heavy handed way he has gone about re-imaging how to staff the place, and the recent report that after his latest ultimatum people started resigning in droves, coupled with the advertiser boycott ), it may be very well that he will find that he has bitten off a bit more than he can chew. Could Twitter go down? Not probable at this point, but beyond imagining? No.

    A $44 billion mistake would certainly dent his larger than life persona, not to mention badly damage his other companies since he would be so distracted.

    Yikes. You know how human traffickers take passports to keep people hostage? A corporate version of the same calculation.... So many probably want to quit but can't upend their lives for it.

    I deleted mine last night even tho I don’t think I’ve ever used it. That’ll bankrupt him for sure.

    I deleted mine as soon as the sale to Musk was announced.
    Stay calm, be brave....wait for the signs. Possibly precariously prevaricating.
