The biggest example of FU money in history - Twitter

First, I have to believe Elon has a plan…..remember when he and Tesla were doomed?

That said, maybe he’s tired of the nonsense and has the ability (FU money) to watch it all burn.

Either way, what we are witnessing is a good thing.

I’d think he has a plan, but yes it’s been pretty entertaining

It’s not burning. There was an immense amount of fat there and they are pissed about getting a pink slip.

Elon vs AOC is like a grown man playing against kids in pop warner football.

I wish he had FU money for Facebook. It and Twitter need to both be burned to the ground.

everything Elon has touch has gone up in flames(literally)....

....at first. And then he pushes the company past those failures into wild successes.

Teslas couldn't stop catching on fire at first. Then they figured out how to make them work.

Space-X couldn't stop crashing rockets. Then they figured out how to make them work.

I have full faith that he and his crew will figure it out with Twitter. But I fully expect Twitter to be vastly different on every single level than the Twitter we knew. It would probably do better for him to relaunch it entirely under a new name.

He didn’t put up the entire 44B. He has bank financing and VC money backing him. There’s no way he just lets it burn.

Sounds like he's lifted the curtain on the entire tech industry and they're realizing that their stock inflation schemes are over

You can support him or not, but this guy has a vision

He’s not that rich by accident

A guy who can launch rockets better than NASA can certainly figure out what to do with Twitter.

There are losers out there that said Elon just bought Tesla and kicked out the founders and he did nothing. They also say he started a rocket company and hired smart people to build those rockets and he doesn’t deserve credit.
Can’t wait for Twitter to be a wild success with 10% the workforce and these same idiots say it’s all thanks to the previous CEO.

Honestly, I get that. There’s no way this is a simple grudge match (a tad of it is). Not at the 44B level.

He’s said as much in interviews, indicating he believes it can be much more - similar to the Chinese analog app. Part of what I enjoy about Musk is his ability to disrupt a market, but part of why I am skeptical is because I don’t necessarily share some of the ideals. He’s been more than net positive for the world though, so I am in the wait-and-see camp.

This is how I know Elon's twitter purchase will succeed.

That's the hilarious part about all the people on the left here saying he is destroying twitters value by the hour.

No. Twitters value was hyperinflated by lying about its traffic and users. It was all bull shite

This really is the key. There's been a LOT of fluff and fat added at Twitter for its employees while the company has continued to burn deep into annual deficits. Turning it around was never going to be easy nor pretty; if anyone can do it though, it's Elon.
