He’s been feeling bad. His big rocket done blowded up.
Twitter servers fell over. For a lot of people. Repeatedly.
I have been permanently suspended from twitter for either blocking too hard, or for making nazis feel unsafe. Either way is pretty funny to me. Ten years, goodbye!
I was the maintainer of the extension bluesBlocker, for the record.
In an unprompted Tuesday email, Musk wrote: “So is NPR going to start posting on Twitter again, or should we reassign @NPR to another company?”
Under Twitter’s terms of service, an account’s inactivity is based on logging in, not tweeting. Those rules state that an account must be logged into at least every 30 days, and that “prolonged inactivity” can result in it being permanently removed.
Musk did not answer when asked whether he planned to change the platform’s definition of inactivity and he declined to say what prompted his new questions about NPR’s lack of participation on Twitter.
In an email sent at 2:19 a.m. EST after the story was originally published, Musk wrote a message without any text in the body but with this subject line: “You suck.”
In the controversial tweets, Musk compared George Soros, a Jewish-born investor and philanthropist, to Marvel’s Jewish supervillain Magneto and claimed that Soros “hates humanity” and “wants to erode the very fabric of civilization.”
Musk disputed the characterization of these tweets as antisemitic, telling Faber, “I’m like a pro-semite, if anything.” He then made it clear that he didn’t want to talk further about Soros.
Clearly, he’s deranged; someone’s going to get hurt physically, I fear.
Of course Musk’s twitter would be focused on labeling NPR and BBC as “state media” but would give RT a pass.
Well, shit. I was hoping he would decide not to.
But at least he and Trump will be at each other’s throats for a while.
Yeah, who needs a third-party candidate to split the vote, lol?!
The “Don’t say gay” bill, the people he tricked onto that plane, the fight with Disney. All of these things, and more, are solely about raising his profile for a particular type of voter in preparation for this. I would be more surprised if he didn’t run. If he remains governor, he might have to deal with the consequences of one or more of these messes that he created.
That actually opens up an intriguing possibility. Imagine that DeSantis wins the R nomination. Do you think that Trump is just going to concede? I would bet that there’s a non-zero possibility that Trump continues running as an independent, thereby diluting the voting pool and almost guaranteeing a Democrat win.
Honestly, even if Trump somehow manages to get re-elected in 2024, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he just keeps campaigning for re-election afterwards. Neither logic nor legality has been a hindrance before now, so why would that change?
