He should just pump in some of that $56 billion

Maybe he could merge with Truth Social.

And yet, X is one of the most quoted sources on the Retort in comments by the left. I am sure they send a huge thank you for following all those people that tell you how to think on X.

True, but I have noticed a drop in interaction on Twitter.

Not sure if it's intentional.
Meaning, subscribers get more exposure, and replies

But I am seeing an even balance of left wing right wing content, which is refreshing from the OT.

#6 That is not what I said. I have not noticed any drop in posters here quoting others they follow and hang on every tweet on Twitter(X) as fact. This is true.

every tweet on Twitter(X) as fact. This is true.

A twitter quote is shared to show what someone posted, not to share any veracity. The point is "this person posted this", often to highlight someone employing misinformation. It's not "I believe this because I saw it on twitter"

I never knew what a wacko Musk was until he acquired Twitter. I actually respected him until then. Everything he posts is conspiracy-minded garbage, so naturally that's what has taken over the site.

He sounds like an ----- with an army of paid bootlickers in tow, reminding him what a helluva guy he is ... just in case he forgets. Which, being an untethered narcissist, he most definitely will not.

If he wants advertisers back on Xitter, he needs to get rid of the Nazis.

There are no other options.

This is true.


No it isn't.

Maybe over there on earth2. Good luck selling that nonsense here.

Over here on original earth we all know what Twitter has become since Elmo took over.

CBOB (#11) nailed it. And I have to agree with post #8. Twitter posts are used for various reasons but they are not the majority of links used as reference here.

Wasn't it Musk that said advertisers can go F... themselves? His only chance of getting advertisers back is to start with a public, full throated apology to the advertising community. The other factor in all of this is that Musk, like Trump, is suffering from the same condition: the more people know him, the less they like him.
