I'm not strongly anti-Musk. I am strongly anti-Twitter because I think it's trash, and if you're going to make yourself the sole face of trash then expect some negative feedback. Also, I guess I would say I am strongly anti-worshipping-Musk. Just like I am strongly anti-worshipping any celebrity or billionaire. And there is a difference.
I've stated before I saw no reason why he should buy Twitter and I would have preferred that he didn't because I want him to be focusing on his projects that are actually worthwhile. SpaceX is awesome. StarLink is cool but probably limited as I have had satellite internet before and it wasn't great. The effort will ultimately pay off if he keeps at it. Tesla can get better with greater ranges and battery capacity. There is so much more he could focus on than a **** platform like Twitter.
Instead, he's basically turned into a Twitter-obsessed idiot who clearly has no idea what he is doing in that realm and who is censoring "free speech" to an extent that exceeds what was happening before.
The idea that people thought he would "save" free speech is just comical to me. I guess that's the main motivator; to point out how foolish it is to think that anyone like Elon Musk actually cares about "free speech". He cares about his speech. It's a tale as old as time. People in power care about their interests and their interests only.
The problem with someone saying they are going to right a wrong is that their definition of right and wrong may not fit what everyone else considers right and wrong.
As for Twitter, I think it was great back when it first launched and it was manily used by people posting more-often-than-not read-worthy tweets.
What most people do not realize is that Twitter, like most social media, is basically a pyramid scheme. It may not be based on financial benefits, but the goal is to have enough famous/popular people at the top to keep the masses pouring in at the bottom thinking they are somehow on the same level as those above.
As for Tesla, competition has been catching up to them. Their innovation has slowed heavily and more and more companies are investing in the EV markets now.
I think SpaceX is a great company, but it remains to be seen how other competitors will match against them in the coming years.
StarLink was a great idea, but I predicted they would encounter the same exact problem mobile carriers have been facing for years which is localized saturation of bandwidth. I have heard a lot of people complaining that the bandwidth speeds drop to unusable levels during prime time and that's with only a small percentage of the internet user base actually using the service.
I do not hate Twitter, but I would not be sad if it declined in popularity. Most of the primary social media services are nothing more than over-crowded arenas where everyone is screaming hoping to get noticed. Eventually people are going to figure out the top 1% of each network is all that matters to most people.
