We have to do it: The Twitter sh*tshow, Wednesday edition

The mess Elon Musk created when he bought Twitter is a never-ending car crash that I can’t help gawking at. Here’s the latest. (It’s a short list today, but it’s still early.)

Elon says he’ll step down as CEO…

but not as owner. This follows the results of that poll he took on the subject. Almost 60% of respondents said that he should resign. He says he’ll go as soon as he finds a replacement. Who would want to deal with issues like this? He says he’ll stay on as an engineer. But he’s not very good at that, either.

People are canceling their orders for Teslas

More people are refusing to be seen driving a vehicle associated with Elon. And I’ll admit it: Every time I see a Model 3 glide past my house, I think of Elon. But after he said he’d resign as CEO, Tesla stock rebounded. Still, there will be layoffs at Tesla in 2023.

Ex-employees are suing Elon

Allegations involve everything from sex discrimination, breach of contract, and illegal termination (including people who were on medical or parental leave.)

What about that alleged “stalker incident?”

It was a member of his own security team. Only the best people…

Is Elon Musk taking volunteers to help?

When Limp Bizkit offers to help, you know things are weird.
