Musk actually buys Twitter.

So, it looks like Elon has actually managed to pull it off, and has bought Twitter. This could result in a sea-change in some parts of western politics, if free speech is actually enforced.

There could be some serious fallout from this.

Well I for one would not be sad if Twitter crashes and burns.

So...Musk is very innovative and is about to own this colossal social media network...I'm curious to see what he does with it.

It'll be hard to make it worse than it is, and if he crashes and burns it...not a huge loss as far as I'm concerned. There's a lot that someone like him could do with the place.

Very interesting times ahead. Musk just took one of the left's favorite toys, and they're going to be really pissed off about it.

Seriously though, this is one of the primary propaganda tools utilized by the left. They're going to have an utter fucking meltdown.

It will either destroy the platform, which IMO is no bad thing, or Elon's ownership won't change anything ( a push), or Twitter will be less of a hellscape. I do not see how I lose here but I guess that sting in the tail can show up later.

After the shit they pulled....

This isn't even an assault on the left their just going to have to follow the same rules as everyone else.
I am pretty sure for them, to be held to the same standards is in itself is an attack. As seen elsewhere, to truly succeed they need to have special treatment or control over the commanding heights.
