Elon Musk’s Twitter sh*tshow keeps getting sh*ttier

As hard as it is to believe, the Twitter situation under Elon Musk just keeps getting stupider. Let’s once again count the ways.

Let’s consider what the rest of the world thinks of Musk and Twitter.

Yeah, Twitter has issues in the US. But the rest of the world has thoughts, too. And they’re not good.

Most of the coverage we’ve seen has to do with Twitter’s new rep in America. But then there’s the rest of the world.

What’s beef Elon has with Tim Cook and Apple?

…of celebrities and politicians. I’m not surprised given that who’s left on staff to watch over this sort of thing.

COVID-19 misinformation is back…

…because there’s no one left to supervise things. But hey, “free speech,” right?

What’s it really like to work for Elon Musk?

This.
