The Twitter sh*tshow waddles on. Here’s the latest summary of Elon Musk’s travails

Elon Musk continues his quest to be the most famous person in the world for all the wrong reasons as he continues to burn Twitter to the ground. This makes me sad because (a) I like using Twitter; I find it very useful, (b) I use Twitter to promote stuff that I’m doing, so it’s an important part of my business, and (c) there are many intersections between Twitter and music, so I need to keep track of what’s going on because, well, it’s part of my job.

Will Elon step down as CEO?

Remember the weekend poll?

That’s a pretty convincing result. So what does Elon have to say? Well, itt doesn’t seem like he’s going to accept the results of his own poll, saying that only paid Twitter Blue subscribers will be able to vote in any policy-related pools in the future. Or maybe this poll was designed to fake out all the bots. (Yeah, I don’t buy that.)

However, Elon says that Twitter is draining him

He says that he’s losing his life savings and the whole ordeal is causing him a lot of pain. Dude, you started this.

Maybe Snoop Dogg can take over

Elon says that no one wants the top Twitter job, but that’s not entirely true. Snoop conducted his own poll, asking if he should be running Twitter. Over three million people responded and seemed to like the idea. He’s already got a business plan.

Is Elon over his head?

This post examines that. (SPOILER: He is.]

  • I have always said that stupidity should be painful, and here Musky is suffering from his stupidity. I have zero sympathy for him.
