"But the former US president may not return to the platform, earlier saying: “I don’t see any reason for it”.

I bet he does.

It’ll just make his downfall all the more entertaining

Trump probably can’t come back because he’s trying to make Truth Social payoff.

By the way, I once read that the word “honestly” is almost always followed by a lie, so what does that say about Truth Social.

It’s anti-social?

Honestly I’ve never heard of this Truth Social, do you have a link that I can add to my spam?

’ Mr. Trump is obligated to make his posts available exclusively on Truth Social for six hours before sharing them on other sites, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. He can post to any site immediately if the messages pertain to political messaging, fund-raising, or get-out-the-vote initiatives. Truth Social did not return a request for comment. ’ - NYT

Re: Musk’s Trump poll and his incorrect use of the quote 'vox populi , vox dei ’ which he cites to mean ‘the people have spoke’.

The full quote is "Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, vox populi, vox dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit.”

it translates to:

“Do not listen to those who say the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the tumult of the crowd is always close to madness.”

(My thanks goes to the missus for digging into that. :slight_smile: )

The problem with twitter is the bots. I dont believe they are doing enough to remove bots and I think their mDAU figures are inflated.

  • Fires the team responsible for removing half a million bot accounts a day
  • Celebrates the increase in reported mDAU at a level of around half a million new users per day
  • Uses a method to determine if Trump should be allowed back that is highly influenced by bots.

Add to that list the move from verification to rando paying $8…

Should have said ‘extreme poverty’ which Musk’s ego trip could have eradicated 5 times over

I think most sane people would give up a Tesla or iPhone to eradicate extreme poverty

Send your resumes. The Woke need not apply?

Forgot to mention female applicants may enter a pool to be the next potential Elon Baby Momma.

Oh dear.

It’s going to be a $44 Billion mistake.

Or he will be left with a smaller Twitter - a worse Twitter that will be similar to Parler.

Tesla, Space X. Lovely. Well done. Keep going.

Twitter? Not so much.
