I don't think that's an apt comparison. Tom never stiffed his vendors while holding immigrant workers hostage at work with their visa statuses, all after drastically overpaying (with other people's money) for a company that he forewent due diligence on.Into the next MySpace!?
Hurray! He's succeeding beyond all expectations! Go Musk!
Most people who have used Twitter will probably continue to use it, sure, but I don't think it makes sense to assume that they "could care less". Most of my friends who've stuck around have done so for content that is only available there, but they care quite a lot that their feeds are filling with ever more extreme right wing hate content. Most people actually don't use Twitter at all. I count myself among them.I think Twitter will be just fine. Sure, a small class of society absolutely hates Musk for political / cultural reasons, but most people could care less and just use Twitter (for better and for worse, but irrelevant of Musk).
Your first mistake was saying "I think" when it's pretty obvious you didn't.I think Twitter will be just fine. Sure, a small class of society absolutely hates Musk for political / cultural reasons, but most people could care less and just use Twitter (for better and for worse, but irrelevant of Musk).

You are confusing the product with the customers.
It's not just a vanity project to him, Twitter is vital to maintaining his ego. He'd probably give up his SpaceX & Tesla shares before he'd give up his Twitter account.For Musk, I think, it is a vanity project. So long as plenty of people jack off his ego, he's good.
The founders created a successful world-wide social network. It played a useful social role. Profits were small but appeared sustainable. Founders were satisfied with the situation, and had no interest in selling.The only takeaway here is that a bunch of Twitter founders and subsequent leaders never made good on their premise for what Twitter could and/or should be (that list includes Williams and Dorsey) and are now shitting on someone else continuing their fine tradition of allowing Twitter to implode due to egregious mismanagement and overall ineptitude.
I misread that as “incinerated” at first. I was disappointed when I noticed my mistake.How about both these billionaires get incarcerated for a couple decades and have their billions confiscated to you know, maybe improve peoples lives instead of devastating them for once.
Most people? The vast majority of people are not active on Twitter, even if you use Twitter's MDAU numbers that Musk claimed were full of bots. As noted in many threads, Twitter is way down on the list of popular social media by number of users. Inflating the importance and influence of the social media that you prefer is quite common, just ask any teenager.
These are the same guys who invent the bus and the train every 6 months.“If a hundred million people in the world share the most interesting idea or thought, and the computers could algorithmically give you the most interesting slice of that, that's a hell of a media service”
Did Twitter’s cofounder just come up with the idea of Twitter, but, like, again?
