Elon Musk Launches Hostile Takeover of Twitter

Truth Social is only for apple users right now and Trump apparently hasn't posted anything on that site, even though it's basically his. Maybe he'll be allowed back onto twitter and he will at least be able to reach out to voters during the next election cycle.

Yeah! Very interesting.....

It might be because at the very beginning the Board did and said things that could have cost them all personally. With that reality on the table, they may all have decided to save themselves rather than fight and lose and then lose their personal fortunes following court proceedings. Boards have to remember they're working for the shareholders...

Today, he said he has no intention of coming back to Twitter.
Pretty certain he’ll be back

Why would he just put in on Apple, can it run on other platforms at the same time or is that a problem, tech challenged here and fortunate I can run my laptop.

It's supposed to be availabe for android... but that launch date keeps not happening. Maybe technical issues or issues with google??? I can go to the website in windows but all I can access is the front page.

Ok so if it is available for android, is android only for a smart phone, I'm on a laptop it would be nice if they can reach most internet users. We will never have smart phones unless they force us, and if they do that they can pay for it too. (but I still not use it or very little).

I'm curious to see what will happen to Twitter now and if this will be a growing trend of fighting back this woke nonsense. I just pray we get more time to share the Gospel and raise our children freely before the rapture or the destruction of this country.

It's not available for android. The plan is that it will be... but the wait has been long. I need to drive through Canada in the pretty near future to pick up a trailer in Oregon that is being built for me. In order to be allowed in to Canada there is an app that I have to use to provide information and complete forms within a certain timeframe of my arrival at the border. What I'm saying is smart phones, or pocket computers are becoming more and more necessary in this world we live in today.

......."Truth Social (terrible name) exists because Twitter censored free speech," Musk followed up with an ensuing tweet.

Musk even offered a new name for Truth Social, tweeting: "Should be called Trumpet instead!"

Musk calls himself a free speech absolutist and has criticized Twitter's policies that moderate speech and are aimed at curtailing harassment.

"By 'free speech,' I simply mean that which matches the law," Musk tweeted Tuesday. "If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people."

.....Earlier this week, after Twitter accepted Musk's $44 billion offer, he laid out his interest in reinforcing free speech as his reason for purchasing the social media platform, or, as Musk calls Twitter, the world's "digital town square."

"Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated," Musk said. "I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans.

"Twitter has tremendous potential — I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it," Musk continued. "I hope that even my worst enemies remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means."

Elon Musk Claims He Will Vote Republican in Next Election​

Tesla CEO Elon Musk says he will be voting Republican in the next election, despite “overwhelmingly” voting for Democrats throughout his life.

Musk made his remark on Monday while speaking at a Miami tech conference, where the billionaire discussed his views on Twitter — after placing his deal to buy the platform “on hold” — and free speech, according to a report by Business Insider.

“The reality is that Twitter at this point, you know, has a very far left bias,” Musk said. “I would classify myself as a moderate, neither Republican nor Democrat.”

“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically — I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear,” the SpaceX CEO continued. “Now this election I will.”

Maybe Musk is maturing as a human being. A lot of youth like the idea of socialism, but hopefully we grow up at some point and understand the dangers of socialism in all of its forms...

What is the hold back on the purchase of Twitter?

Musk wants an audit of user accounts to determine what percentage are bots. It's a valid concern because if the number is multiple times higher than what Twitter has been claiming in its reports the company might not be able to survive the lawsuits that would spring up.
