• Twitter employees are all a-twitter, talking about quitting

    Maybe illustrative of something maybe not expected. That it's not just the board of directors responsible for a malfunctioning (or just biased) organization, but, especially after years of use, the users and the workers. It might not be so easy to change and make it inclusive of those same people plus the people who had been excluded by them.
     
  • Democrat Howard Dean left Twitter

    Jameela Jamil (actress and feminist) left.

    NYT colomnist Charles Blow left.
     
  • Musk making some statements in favor of free speech that seem sort of antagonistic to liberals (woke etc)

    Is this the best plan to keep an inclusive, pluralistic platform?

  • Big follower number changes day after Musk bought Twitter

    Obama down 300k, Katy Perry down 200k. A Republican congresswoman and Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil went up 100k followers.

    They said this was caused by organic changes (left wingers leaving platform, right wingers joining).

     
  • Musk tweeted "Love me tender" with music notes

    People think he'll make a tender offer. He has to show he has sufficient funds, though. There are no competing offers, so analysts say if he has the money he'll own Twitter.

  • Musk bought like 10% of Twitter stock

    Stock rose 25%. It went down a bit in the following days, but is still up significantly.

    A few days earlier he engaged with the public on his Twitter, asking about if Twitter respects democracy and stuff and what should be done, and people wondered if he might buy a majority in Twitter for a few billion.

    A few days after buying his 10% in stoc, he offered to buy all of Twitter for like $40b or something. It wasn't accepted. News is discussing it.
