Some of us are born beautiful, some of us are born rich, and some of us are born lucky enough to not give a half of a rat about social media or rich people. If you’d like to know what’s up with Twitter since Elon “not the antichrist” Musk bought it, we got all the juicy details for you.
He hasn’t done Mu(sk)ch. Haha get it? But really. Twitter is basically the exact same. He’s fired some key players, namely former CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, Chief Legal Officer Vijaya Gadde, and General Counsel Sean Edgett. All of them were reportedly terminate before the ink was dry on the deal.
The trustworthy ADL said that they found some 1200 antisemitic memes in the 24 hours after Musk took control, along with a 500% increase in instances of the no-no word (you can figure it out) in the same time period. So, it’s like the internet before it sucked? Twitter’s claimed that this was a trolling campaign, pointing out how more than 50,000 tweets were posted by just some 300 accounts. As an internet troll, I can confirm. Just Kidding. Maybe.
Musk is being criticized, rightfully, by anybody who is cool and not a total loser, for allowing anybody who wants the infamous blue “verified” checkmark to spend $8 a month on it. Previously you had to be a public figure with a following, but it’s unclear exactly how this was determined.
In a super-unpredictable twist of fate, this backfired on Elon Musk immensely, when internet trolls started using their newfound checkmarks of authenticity to impersonate brands. Many of these posts were boosted by Twitter’s algorithm; and in plain English,
They weren’t advertising the products in the called-for corporate voice, though, and in fact they were posting much worse stuff than ads for product.

Not enough to keep Twitter afloat, because lets be real, it takes a central bank to keep social media running. All social media platforms that the public’s heard of are all fully controlled, bought, sold, and built by the USGOV’s many intelligence and security organizations and agencies, this includes Twitter, Meta, Snap, I don’t care, you name it. Yelp? yep. Pornhub? Probably.
Basically, nothing is changing, but everything is going to somehow continue getting worse. And on that note, I shall leave you with a semi-related thought.
In 2022, it’s clear that not all is well in the world. It would appear that most people can only handle a set amount of mainstream media, global tyranny, debt-economy fun, supporting Ukraine, and chattel slavery. Who would have guessed? What we’re watching now occur, entropy, is like if G-d wrote the plot to reality by using mad-libs. We’re starting to see pretty weird shit happen; like Ye, (famous rapper and aspiring Austrian painter) publicly speaking on J-uh, um, hmmm.. Israeli.. control of the world. If that doesn’t get you pumped for the future hell we await, then get this: The richest man in the world bought the most worldview-influencing social media platform there is, even though it doesn’t make any money. Not even break-even money. It just runs! I doubt the state prints the cost! Mr. Musk purchased Twitter, get this, to among other things, re-prioritize free speech on the platform. That’s like trying to pick up a person of the night so you can bring them to a Sex-and-Love-Addicts-Anonymous meeting.
Maybe you see where I’m going with this. And if you do, congrats. You’re not plain dumb. and the only thing that taking a hooker to a SLAA meeting has in common with billionaires buying bloody twitter? They’re both plain dumb.
