Half of Twitter's top 100 advertisers appear to no longer be advertising on the website.

Imagine if Elon keeps on with his hard work of driving Twitter to and through bankruptcy...and then Apple has a change of heart about social media, and it buys Twitter. Give Apple a year and I imagine the platform would be pretty secure and far more moderated.

I think you misunderstand Musk's motives for buying Twitter in the first place.

Everything Musk is doing right now, which appears to be driving the company into bankruptcy, is an illusion. The advertisers he's losing don't mean diddly to him. The GOP will pick up the slack when the primary gets in full swing.

A social platform the size of Twitter is the party of the third part in the GOP's attempt at a sedition-less coup. All nice and legal-like.

You don't think Musk entered this deal without expecting big rewards, do you?

Those rewards have a limited shelf life, and will expire when the bond holders don't get paid and then declare a default. They think they can sell TWTR for the balance of their bonds, and have probably already spoken to contacts at Microsoft, Google, Apple and Amazon, all of whom have the cash, the technology and the public presence to run the site in a respectable manner. Imagine Jeff Bezos in charge of TWTR: great technology and no Dotard ...

"Those rewards have a limited shelf life, "

I didn't say it wasn't a gamble. There are too many unresolved variables to be considered a safe bet. Only that the dots look like they're starting to get in a row.

One of those variables is Florida's "Resign to Run Law." Granted, that's not a deal killer, depending on the odds of course. Florida's newly elected state legislature seems to be in favor of changing the law so DeSantis can have a safe landing if he loses in the primary. It's still a little iffy because the "Resign to Run Law" only deals with municipal elections ~ not State to Federal.

That's probably one of those "variables" DeSantis has to clear up before he can safely announce.

Twitter is retaining posters. From what I've read they are adding more than subtracting. These companies that are "pausing" by pretending to be woke will be back if Twitter weathers this stupid storm and continues its trend of comment growth.

Twitter is actually adding advertisers.

The 5 media companies (is there even that many?) want all social media to go away. They like being the voice and to quote celebrities. They will do that until the end of time if they can.
