    I saw some "news" report today about Twitter and Apple, It claimed Musk was talking to Apple about lending support to "control" Twitter. Probably wild rumors, but interesting.

    I said it before, and I 'll say it again the hammer of EU data protection authorities is going to come down on Twitter.

    Just yesterday Musk met with the EU’s digital chief, and was warned about several compliance issues. Then hours later he publishes a symbol and content  that is illegal in some EU countries. 

    Oh, and I'm sure the FTC is lining up as well.

    Stand back, and stand by.

    Elon musk just banned Kanye West from Twitter. I agree with the ban. But it seems to stop Kanye's free speech even if it is hatred and stupidity, 
    In this case Ye will thank him if he  gets the mental help he needs.

    I tend to agree, he’s bitten the fruit of the Farrakhan tree.

    You know what they say: free speech for me, but not for Ye.
    Don’t tread on Ye. Even Alex Jones is distancing himself.

    So many would just hint and use dog whistles stopping just short of the line, but this dipstick said the quiet part out loud, blew right past that line, and now they are all tethered to him and his views for history to judge.

    Yet he's so enthusiastically embraced by so many.

    What does one suppose he's said to be received so warmly?

    Who are these "so many"? I have heard of a couple people on both sides of the aisle but not very many. Like Dave said, he has always been crazy and Kim K probably put him over the edge.

    Did you see the interview where KanYe was wearing the black hood? Jones was visibly disturbed and unsure what to say or do when KanYe started praising Hilter.

    Thanks for the info Cad. I was wondering why he would do that.

    I don't know half the people that gets everybody worked up.  We should discuss cool people like Markovnikov

    Bimini, go have a drink. Smoke a bowl. Get some Lovin from your wife or whatever else it takes to just relax. The world will turn tomorrow.

    When y’all get like this I can tell you’re trying to run cover for something. Is it the whole lobster dinner let Maine eat cake fiasco or is it the blank and bewildered looks  in front of really large crowds?

    Are you saying you hope he doesn’t commit “Arkanside”?

    A tweet asked if checking last minute facts was code for “ help, she’s in the building “.

      I thought that was funny.

    Elon fans !!! Line right up for your brain implants now ... 


    https://www.dazeddigital.com/life-culture/article/57632/1/first-monkeys-now-you-elon-musk-neuralink-brain-chips-are-ready-for-human-trials

    Cast your mind back to February 2022, when Elon Musk’s Neuralink was accused of killing cute little monkeys by cutting out parts of their skull and inserting electrical equipment into their brains. Apparently, they experienced “extreme suffering” before they were eventually euthanised – but, on the plus side, they were able to play video games with their mind. Jealous? Well, good news: now you have a chance to experience the excruciating effects of the billionaire’s experimental implants too!

    Elon Musk’s monkey-killing brain chips are ready for human trials


    Elon Musk’s monkeys have seen things you people wouldn't believe... Tesla Roadsters careening through space... they watched pong balls glitter in the dark, propelled by nothing more than their thoughts. All those moments lost in time, like tears in rain...

    Well, then what were those others doing hanging out, and hiring to their staff, those other two guys at dinner, that the fellow didn't know, for months?

    Did those moving away from the fellow not know who they were either?

    This is all a lot like shrimp left in the trunk, it's going to be hard to get the smell out.


    Most of what you say could be described as that. 

    What’s your point?
    I wonder if Elon will live through the nite? How fun, some people are really oscillating tonight.
    This must be like Christmas morning to some, I wonder how many are joining just to see the big reveal.

    Waiting for a tweet with photo of all the attorneys around the white board laying out flow chart stack of defamation law, and the privacy compliance folks explaining Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
  • joelunchbucketjoelunchbucket Posts: 2,469 Captain
    No doubt there are some people calling their attorneys tonight, BT.

    DC is full of people who will be really pissed, if their dirty laundry gets aired on social media.

    Hopefully, Musk follows through with making the info public.

    Fox News already saying powerful people got to Elon and he’s not releasing the real story.
