    Default So I deleted twitter but ......

    I've been getting emails from twitter daily and here's the weird part, every one of them is some soft porn type of twitter link. It's like Elon is trying to lure lonely guys to make up for all the corporations jumping ship.

    Maybe Elon is trying to make twitter into the next pornhub

    Deleted Twitter? So see you had another (m)ass removed?

    I deleted it too, but Elon could care less about me. Maybe it’s your Tesla connection?

    I deleted it within minutes of hearing Musk had purchased it, not that that will make any difference to him.
    Stay calm, be brave....wait for the signs. Possibly precariously prevaricating.

    I just added it for the first time. Will be fun to see the fight with Apple up close. Not afraid of other points of view.

    I've never had twitter or facebook and I actually know the pretty young women that I get emails from.

    I never leted it so I didn't have to delete it.
    Spam is mysterious; for a couple of years, at work, I got a lot of emails in Cyrillic, which I could not read.

    Did you post photos of Renee on Twitter? It could be an algorithm recognizing your interest in bikini clad attractive women.

    What is your thinking regarding dropping Twitter but buying a Tesla? Musk is CEO of both companies. I am not trying to be snarky. I am interested in what you perceive as the difference between the two.

    Calendar sequence. Joe bought his Tesla a couple of years ago and Musk only got involved with Twitter a month ago, and before that the fact that Musk was such a poser and trmp-like moronic petulant child right wing prick wasn't so apparent. It took the current bozo-like handling of the social media platform for Musk's inepititude as a CEO to become so public and obvious. Apparently. Don't want to speak for Joe, but that's what it looks like. Apparently the other companies Musk owns, that made him even richer than he was from his South African emerald mine inheritance and the richest person in the world, were staffed with people who were there before he owned them, and who went to some regular lengths to insulate the actual functioning of the companies from his shenanigans, and became successful in spite of Musk and not because of his ownership or leadership, the success being due to the products he had nothing to do with developing or manufacturing or selling.

    Yea Elan was a douche at the time we bought our Tesla, but he wasn't even a glimmer in Twitters eye.
    Then there is the difference between buying a physical vehicle that is incorporated into your daily life, is fun to drive, solves our transportation and for me in California cheeper and easy to own, verses a never used social media app on my phone. It was a pretty easy decision.

    My only regret is that if I waited a year or two more ( we've had our Tesla now for a year ) I would have more choice in the EV market. I still think at this time given the price, range, and Tesla charging network still makes the most sense for us, but others are catching up quick.

    Well, maybe you can be an early adopter of Elon’s new phone :

    I designed it and had it made, I'm actually starting a company to market and sell them with different designs.
    Mine was a take off on an Aston Martin grill. Interestingly if you google image Tesla model 3 grill modification mine comes up and IMHOP is the best looking one

    My Tesla is on the left in case you get confused
