@#2 ... Perhaps now the liberals on this site will quit using Twitter as a news source. ...

While I do acknowledge that your alias may be doing backflips over this headline, I have to ask...

What is the sample that the poll used?

What is the margin of error in the poll?

Does your alias have answers to those questions?

If not... why not?

Twitter users, 134M saw the poll, only 15M cast a vote.

What is the margin of error in the poll?

No error, and the count was immediate, a true direct Democracy.

I voted against, I lost but I am not leaving twitter. Because I am not a snowflake.

And by all means, blow right past what Musk said when he took over twitter and the mass hypocrisy of this.

This is rich!

That's a pretty big piece of cheese Musk is dangling in front of the Rat King's wrinkled, orange nose. Wonder if he'll take the bait and, like an old junkie with a yen for that familiar spoon and dropper, drool all over himself as he jumps over his fast food dinner to start posting his gibberish once again.

OK, so less than 10%, and self-selected. Self-selected is important in polling. Real pollsters try to avoid that type of sampling.

www.oxfordreference.com

...A type of convenience sample comprising research participants or subjects who have volunteered to participate, often in response to an advertisement calling for people with certain characteristics to come forward....

"with certain characteristics..." hmmmmm

... No error, and the count was immediate, a true direct Democracy. ...

So, how does that self-selected sample represent all Twitter users?

... Your shtick is getting weak. ...

Yet I am not the alias that is posting questionable polling information.

I'm not sure what your comment means by "Twitter as fax" but beyond that...

I fully acknowledge that Twitter is now a private company wholly owned and governed by Mr Musk.

So he can do whatever he wants to do with his company.

Are we OK so far?

He won the poll because some of the brain dead far left joined all the brain dead far right in letting him back on the platform, albeit for different reasons.

Kinda like when he got elected Pres because some of the left though Hil was not good enough or was going to win anyway so they sat home or voted for people who couldn't win... and others who called themselves, laughingly enough, BBros, actually voted for him.

Who are the same people, btw, who started all this "rigged election" nonsense that Trump doubled down on.

Thanks, far leftism!

I disagree.

At this point in Twitter's life, I'd proffer that any survey conducted on the Twitter site is so biased as to be worthless.

But that result may be exactly what Mr Musk wants to see.

If anyone has a differing view of the sample for those Twitter votes I'm, as Alf might say, all ears.

It's been rebuilding his list of followers. I follow him from back when he was president just looked and yep still following him even though I didn't re-follow when he was reinstated. So acting like 86 million people signed on to follow him in a day is a bit disingenuous.

Corky, leftists are not liberals. You can blame leftists all you want but you might as well also blame Republicans for voting for Trump over Hillary. Liberals and Democrats believe in the current economic and "meritocratic" system. Leftists decidedly do not.

Different value systems and different voting patterns. Leftists do not belong to the Democratic party. They don't owe the Democratic party their vote any more than Republicans owe the Democratic party their vote.

So what is the issue that democrat leftist have with Musk owning Twitter?

may be the easiest question to answer in some time. This is why leftists despise Musk for owning twitter.

"The White House was fact-checked Tuesday after posting a misleading claim about the Biden administration's efforts to cut the deficit.

"The Biden-Harris Administration lowered the deficit with the single largest one-year reduction in American history," the White House tweeted Monday.

The post has since been deleted."

Dems no longer have twitter as one of their butt kissing media whores.

and without them the GD liars can't continue to lie, lie , lie and lie some more.

It was a 100% true statement, by the way.

www.politifact.com

Rated as Half-true because the reason why it was true was left out.

Federal deficit projections for 2022 range from $1.5 trillion to $1.7 trillion, broadly in line with what Yellen said.

However, declaring this a record sidesteps the highly unusual circumstances that made it possible " the expiration of spending measures to combat the pandemic.

It was absolutely nothing even CLOSE to the lies you and your side CONSTANTLY propagates.

So thanks foer proving what a right-wing piece of ---- platform Twitter's become under Musk! Good job!

Maybe it's because he declared a free speech policy, and since then has been banning people who mimic him, firing people who mock him, and keeping bans active on people who make him feel sad personally like alex jones, showing that his free speech policy is totally subjective and random.

Or maybe it might have something to do with musk saying he wants to unban people who used twitter to attempt a fascist coup. Democrat leftists tend to not want fascist coup plotters to have a megaphone. For some reason republicans do. Why is that?

Lets see some musk defender justify this:

Trump used twitter to attempt a fascist coup, got banned, and elon unbanned him in the name of "free speech."

Alex Jones used twitter to slander school shooting victims, got banned, and elon keeps him banned because elon is sad that his son died as a child.

So in elon's twitter, using twitter to harass people is banned if it make elon sad, but using it to end democracy is ok.
