Everyone needs to calm down and realize just because you don't like him (Elon) doesn't make him dumb, stupid, ignorant, and anything else. He is a businessman.
No, he's dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to running a business. He's not a good business man and never has been. He did not found Paypal and he did not found Tesla. Who signs a contract for 44 billion that says you MUST purchase the company and then cries about it when he has buyer's remorse like a week later? A good businessman would have read the contract in full before signing off on it, especially for something that's costing him nearly a quarter of his wealth. Advertisers are pulling out, users are leaving in droves for Mastodon and Tumblr, employees get fried ON Twitter for simply criticizing him, he fired critical IT and engineering employees, and Twitter Blue was a disaster. You can't even deny that last one. You clearly think you're a capitalist, so I'll ask you how you think something like that was a good thing when it caused Eli Lily to literally lose billions due to an account impersonating them?
Are you running multiple fortune 500 companies?
No, and neither is he. Send Elon to Mars for a year prior to him purging 75% of staff and Twitter would still continue to function. The workers run the company, he just consumes the profit and pretends he did something whenever he says he "has an idea"
He also has very smart people working for him. He doesn't design rockets, but his staff which is smart, does
Correct, I'm glad we agree he doesn't run these companies.
You can't be dumb and be a billionaire, it's impossible
Sure you can! Get lucky and inherit your wealth from your parents! You'll never have to worry about investments failing when you're a trust-fund baby or your parents own an emerald empire And speaking of lucky winnings-
understand 95% of people that win the lottery are flat broke in 9 years, no matter how much they won.
I'm not sure this is the win you think it is, but most people don't win billions from the lottery. If you gave someone a billion from lottery winnings after taxes, I can guarantee you they will not be flat broke in their lifetime and will have enough money leftover for their children to not have to work at all in their lifetimes. Based on the earlier portion of your post, I assume you understand how much money this is and thus why this is the case.
Twitter will not go away. This is just a bunch of people annoyed that twitter is changing.
Look, I'm a 10+ year software engineer with a specialization in cybersec. My masters is in computer engineering. I work on a VERY large system, and I know enterprise web software engineering in and out. The biggest hinderance to any company that writes this type of software is losing people with extensive production knowledge. These are your 5+ year employees who know the system in and out and know how to maintain it when issues come up - and they come up DAILY. You as a user don't know about them, because these guys are so experienced at maintaining Twitter that they fix the issues silently without the majority of the userbase ever experiencing a blip. You can bring in literally the world's top engineers to stand in for these people, and they still wouldn't be able to replace them. Twitter is now rumored to have around 800 employees, down from approx 8000. Do you REALLY think they're going to be able to hold this ship together? From the cybersec side, this is going to be a dumpster fire. I guarantee you black hats have been happily chugging away since Elon took over, more so than they were before, and its only a matter of time they actually breach without a good cybersec team in place to impede them. People are already reporting 2FA is broken. (seriously, change your twitter password ASAP if you're sharing it on other sites. You shouldn't be doing that anyway, but I know most people reading this are.) Twitter as a company will continue to exist (who am I kidding, he's gonna rename it and say he founded it ), but I am VERY skeptical the system as we know it will continue to function for long, or it will become so unusable that people will just leave the platform all together.
You goal is to be a successful artist, not be a political mouthpiece against someone who doesn't even know you exist.
Stop bootlicking him then. He doesn't know you exist.
