No matter what kind of week you’re having, it can’t be worse than what Elon Musk has managed to do to his US$44 billion investment in Twitter. Here’s the latest.
Elon has lost a bit of money.
Thanks to everything that’s happening with Twitter (at least partly), Tesla stock is down 55% this year. That’s helped wipe out US$100 billion Elon’s wealth. ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS.
Twitter and Apple are on a collision course
By charging for subscriptions, Twitter could end up violating Apple and Google’s app rules that could even see Twitter booted from their app stores. Gee, that wouldn’t hurt, would it?
So who, exactly, is paying for Twitter’s blue checkmarks?
Who has decided to fork out $7.99 a month for the privilege of having a checkmark? About 140,000 people apparently. Adult film starts make up a not-insignificant percentage of that number.
Elon’s polls are bogus
Here’s a list of all the celebrities who have quit Twitter
In less than a month, half of Twitter’s top 100 advertisers have bailed
HALF! If Musk has a plan, I have no idea what it is.
Maybe Twitter won’t crash and burn after all.
At least this guy thinks so. Losing 70% of the staff? No problem!
