Elon Musk
« on: Apr 17, 2022, 09:06:19 PM »
The toast of the world on his electric vehicles & his space venture.
Now he ruffles feathers. How dare he want a free speech platform? ??? The influence these platforms have is incredible.Twitter banned Trump AND yet, far, far worse are strolling around this planet, openly spreading their bile. For the many who think the banning of Trump was justified, there was also the matter of suspending some well known media outlets accounts.


Too much power & if they happen to favour/support  a certain political Party......they drag in the votes for that Party.
I知 not on Twitter but if Musk could buy it, I might have a look see......emphasis on the word IF.

How very Chinese of the EU.

https://news.sky.com/story/amp/elon-musk-warned-by-european-union-that-twitter-will-be-banned-unless-he-sticks-to-blocs-digital-rules-report-12758900

I get the feeling that Governments/EU, are worried that their own postings on Twitter will also get scrutinised for disinformation.

Typical EU bullying...

How could they ban it?

Not sure Judd but the proverbial would hit the fan that痴 for sure.
Just about every politician & media outlet use Twitter daily.


There no doubt whatsoever in my mind that Joe Biden wouldn稚 be President now but for suppressing of the Biden laptop by Twitter and FB.
Seems Musk is not the type of fella to be manipulated by politicians.

Not sure how they dun it,but the Biden laptop story coupled with the Biden link to Ukraine shooda bin a nuclear bomb that shooda brought down Creepy Joe. For this alone 10/10. I would have loved to seen aired the Biden film with Lawrence Fox in it: its seems to have disappeared.


I am uneducated on this Musk chap.


I am also uneducated in in this cyrptocurrency collapse,but that I saw some regular presenters faces out the West Indies way bigging up their investments in all things irregular: T Blair and Bill Clinton. Apologies for the wayward links. But today I see the planted face of David Milliband thinking o returning to the UK. Gawd help us. The family dynasties out there are truly horrific: the Lizards have come to town!


I see all things solidifying: honchos marrying honchos,media interests pumping invested interests. Its all as like a giant chess game with the pawns small fry and of no significance. Beware of your children folke: for more dosh and power and influence these evils will get you you into all sortsa mess: you pay,they take the profits if they can shift in. Darwins Laws have gone steroid!!

I follow Musks activities, a live and kicking genius IMO. I知 not on Twitter but I might be heading that way.
His stance on free speech has ruffled the feathers on many & yet, those complaining ie Owen Jones and the like are still on it 😂

Twitter to me is a direct line to challenge, applaud anyone who is on there.
A prime example was Diane Abbott. When Sasha Johnson (BLM activist) got shot early hours in the morning at a "garden party", Abbott was on it like a rash. She posted on Twitter that nobody should be shot for being an activist for BLM.........Turns out that shooting was drug related. She was lambasted for her comments (no apology from her).

Certainly in the US, Government(s) have suppressed articles & issues to suit their own cause. The norm is, we can see our MPs at their surgery BUT via Twitter you can got at them head on. No need for abuse, just straight talking ie Qs & answers.

I have never set foot on Twitter or Facebook. I used to like the old Site called "Multiply" but it was shut down. Couldn't be bothered starting again somewhere new.

There was uproar when Musk took over Twitter & then proceed to thin out the workforce there.
What followed then was other tech companies doing the same.
It continues.

I wonder if Nick Clegg will stand up for the workforce or is his job on the line as well. He works for Meta.

I wonder if the thinning out means that they have now collected most of the data on everyone that they need and they only need a skeleton staff to keep updates on you.
When Facebook(/meta/Micro$oft/Mark Zuckerberg/CIA/Mossad) demanded a real valid photo ID like a Passport because I openly and obviously wasn't using a real name to post, I decided that enough was enough and told them where to shove their soshul meeja.
Funny thing is that one can sign up with a different disposable alias and tel. at any time anyway.

Personally I think Musk is a complete Gallah. Look at his farcical Hyperloop then his underground travel way. He has the scientific knowledge of a cabbage.

Tesla shares were talked up to absurd levels by his BS, Twitter was his one chance to sell some of those shares after promising to be the last one to sell. He has capitalised on a small investment at the cost of other investors.

The man is a complete fraud, if he wasn't so wealthy he would be in gaol.

鄭 fraud, strange how just about every country wants his business.
As for underground travel, why not? There were probably doubters over the Channel Tunnel & the Tube before they came to fruition.
