Who are these people (from NBCUniversal) that look at current state of #Twitter and the type of filth that #Musk is increasingly elevating over there and say "yeah, I want to be part of that. I am excited to help build Twitter 2.0"?
I guess it makes sense since we have already seen shades of Linda #Yaccarino's bigotry.
Figures that Linda would bring other like-minded colleagues over.
The Numbers Are In: Elon Musk Has Been a Disaster for Twitter
After seven months of botched rollouts, sweeping layoffs, and little to no content moderation, the company is apparently worth a third of what Musk fronted.
This stunning decline can no doubt be traced to the big and erratic changes Musk has made to Twitter’s revenue plans, workforce, and core functions. His current growth strategy throwing out a slew of ideas waiting for something to stick
@Green_Footballs why are #bluesky users on corporate sponsored #SocialMedia? They all should be on #Mastodon!
#JackDorsey and #Musk are simply #Narcissistic #Billionaires that should best be ignored.
Any idea how to find out if #PeterThiel was at this huge global "#DefenseIndustry" conference?*
Is there something like @elonjet for #Thiel?
He is even (far( more dangerous than #Musk owning #Palantir and #AIP.
Wow - UK dodged a major bullet there:
Elon #Musk Chooses Between #France And #England
🏳️🌈 I had #Twitter set to private & haven't posted since #Musk took it over, but I held on to the cursed account in some weird hope that maybe it would could turn around.
I couldn't in good conscious keep an account on a site run by such a massive altright narcissistic manbaby promoting #transphobia, hate, & violence.
#PrideMonth is a great reason to cut the cord for good, y'all. It's done. Feels good.💕

"Elon Musk Calls to Imprison Therapists Helping Trans Kids"
https://newrepublic.com/post/173201/elon-musk-calls-imprison-therapists-helping-trans-kids #LGBTQ #discrimination #Musk #birdsite #transphobia
"The Twitter CEO suggested throwing the medical professionals in jail, shortly after vowing to lobby for the criminalization of gender-affirming care."
Musk has a daughter who is trans. I cannot imagine bullying my own child, nor by extension her community. No wonder she won’t speak with him! #TransRights #Musk
#Musk shows Capitalism‘s end. The Mega Wealthy now buy-n-sell politicians, are beyond the law and believe they're Just Better Humans. The only step left is to abandon #Capitalism (its purpose now served) and become the Feudal Lords they want to be. Making laws on capricious whims, taking what they want and leaving scraps as they deem fit, beyond question or refusal. Unless we change course, the world will become #Twitter and people like Thiel, Koch and Musk the new kings we must serve.
Who would have guessed that #Twitter 's reputation would rank #97 (out of 100). I thought it would be lower. Good show #Musk. https://www.axios.com/2023/05/23/corporate-brands-reputation-america

@hankg @GottaLaff @atrupar Their brains work OKish, it’s their souls that have rotted away. #Musk #BlueSky
Article fails to mention that Musk spends half the day posting nasty tweets on his social media site #Twitter! [=#troll]
“Elon #Musk Is All About the Nonstop Grind. And He Can’t Stop Talking About It” [=#narcissist]
“Elon Musk endures a lot. Just ask him” [=#martyr]
“In recent weeks, he has again expounded upon his long workdays and his infrequent vacations, all while mocking workers who prefer working from home as living in “la-la land” [=#asshole]
I suspect it is more about the reality that #Musk’s bird cage is not somewhere that people of diversity, and their allies, want to be or be seen to be.
These are the 7 most hated brands in America—Elon #Musk's Twitter is No. 4
“#Twitter, #Meta and #TikTok are three of the world’s biggest social media giants.
They’re also three of the brands with the worst reputations in the U.S., according to the recently released 2023 Axios Harris Poll 100 reputation rankings.”
@peterlhansen @J12t Whatever #Musk does, he needs to stay the hell away from #SafetyCritical systems or commenting on them.
Even when Musk was largely talking about #Tesla back-in-the-day, it was in large part to exaggerate the capabilities of #Autopilot which has negatively impacted roadway and public safety.
And we can see the recent public and environmental safety issues of Musk's decision to re-insert himself into #SpaceX.
Why is anyone doing business with the increasingly toxic #Musk? https://newrepublic.com/post/173201/elon-musk-calls-imprison-therapists-helping-trans-kids

2/2 The 1st #AI threat is the massive potential for job loss and the absolute denial by any government to deal with the fallout by creating #SocialSecurity structures such as Universal Basic Income to keep people going.
When people on the far left are joined by folks like #Bezos, #Gates and #Musk calling for #UBI to be implemented, it's obviously not an idealism issue, it's just that #politicians are terrified of even talking about it because it's hard to understand in #economics #science terms

You don’t use twitter, #twitter uses you.
I’m proud of my decision to delete my twitter account. As a creature of habit it wasn’t easy but I am a happier, healthier person for doing so.
Those who remain on the fascist site may not all be Nazi collaborators, but they also do not truly understand who or what they support yet by staying.
This #musk circus is far from over, there’s most likely a brutal third act to come.
"Everyone (myself included) who is still on Twitter has some hard questions to ask themselves.

@sebmeineck @anlomedad @netzpolitik_feed Die viel konkretere Gefahr für Menschen ist aus meiner Sicht Software mit neuronalen Netzen im Auto. Wie man bei #ChatPGT sehen kann, funktionieren neuronale Netze nicht zuverlässig. In ein Auto eingebaut gibt das eine Katastrophe.
Had this idea for a while now, however did not yet get to it. #Twitter's press team is finally allowed to state there true opinions about #Elon #Musk. 🤡
I asked them to rate his leadership skills and got a response. Seems they are not that good, I appreciate the honesty. 😉
If you also have questions about Twitter or Elon, maybe try firstname.lastname@example.org.
Normalerweise pappe ich bei #Elon #Musk und #Twitter eine Inhaltswarnung / "CW" dran.

Was viele schon gefühlt/vermutet haben: Twitter ist tot. Wer dort noch ein Konto hat, sollte wirklich nochmal in sich gehen und darüber nachdenken, ob es okay ist, auf solch einer Plattform vertreten zu sein. 🐦🚫

Following on from my earlier toot about how some people feel Elon Musk is the new Messiah, here's another piece showing that he's not the Messiah...
I am so tired. I don’t go to non-work events any more because my nerves are shot.
I don’t want to go to work events.
I am seriously considering a new life that doesn’t involve the Internet.
I feel like the last four years have stripped me of all my good bits and left a nougat of stress, fear, and anxiety.
I don’t want this as my existence. So please, be an ally. #trans #LGBTQ #Musk
@JoshuaHolland “Again, even if Musk was some universal free-speech maximalist, he wouldn’t have to personally promote videos that only happen to punch down against #transgender people…. Instead, it just coincidentally happens that the ‘free speech’ #Musk advocates for is often language that attacks already marginalized people, and seldom challenges corporate interests that harm all of us.” #FuckElonMusk
@JoshuaHolland “The episode comes after #Musk has been quick to heed requests from #Turkey and #India to suppress free speech; the common denominator being a complete lack of principle or standards and a pathetic #subservience to power interests on the far right. Musk, who often pretends to be a moderate, is neither, in his politics nor in his role as #Twitter CEO.”

Passend zum politischen Programm vom Faschisten #DeSantis, äußert sich jetzt sein enger Unterstützer #Musk, und gibt bekannt, dass er dafür eintreten wird, dass Healthcare Worker, die minderjährige #trans Personen behandeln, für lange Zeit ins Gefängnis geworfen werden sollen.
Schon heute kann man dafür in Florida im Gefängnis landen.
Musks Äußerung wie auch Plattform ist Teil einer faschistischen Strategie.
Another chaotic week in the books for #Twitter.
But I think this one is unique in some ways, on the surface.
I posted this to Reddit last night.
Here is what is going on in #Musk's head.
Do not be snowed by this fundamentally hateful guy. He is a serial liar amongst everything I noted below.
Do not be snowed by his collaborators either.
Interesting background to the resignation of #Twitter head of trust and safety Ella Irwin- #Musk recently allowed an anti #trans video after it has been flagged as #HateSpeech. He'd done a deal with the #FarRight media company that produced it- their CEO had complained. Musk is really determined to turn Twitter into a tool for #fascists
Offenbar hat #Musk nun das "Twitter-Blue"-Abo mit einem neuen Feature ausgestattet: Zahlende Abonnenten können Rassismus, Hass, Nazi-Verherrlichungen, Frauenverachtendes, sogar Mordaufrufe etc. veröffentlichen so viel sie wollen — und es wird einfach nicht gelöscht. Eine neue Studie fand heraus, dass bei Twitter-Blue-Accounts 99% der Hass-Inhalte trotz Meldungen online bleiben.
⚠️🇨🇳Musk wraps up very quick, oddly quiet China visit (Reuters News VIDEO) #Ukraine #NATO #Press #News #Invasion #Russia #Musk #ElonMusk ##Starlink #9yearsOfWarInUkraine #WantedDeadOrAlive #China
@mikkergp @carnage4life Not that you suggested it, but Ella Irwin gets no points in my book if she finally grew a spine and pushed back on an over-the-top, hate-filled and #transphobic video that Matt Walsh has been pushing: https://mastodon.social/@adamjcook/110471868003872674
Not after all the harm she caused others previously.
Frankly, I think Ella, #Musk and #Twitter are in a panic... twisting around policy on-the-fly in order to placate both Musk's hateful rhetoric and Twitter's advertisers.
@BruceMirken You can bet your Bottom Dollar that it will be someone who outwardly appears to care about "trust and safety" on Twitter, but is really just a front for #Musk.
I expect Musk will fill this position very quickly.
Shoot. I would not be surprised if he taps one of the faux-left #Krassenstein brothers - who have clearly been deployed by Musk recently in a pathetic attempt to mainstream Musk's hateful rhetoric.
@BruceMirken Let us never forget that it was Ella that was the instigator and primary ringleader for baselessly accusing Twitter's previous Head of Trust and Safety, Yoel Roth, of being sympathetic to pedophilia/child exploitation causes and content - #Musk's favorite accusation.
Yoel had to go into hiding for a while after that.
⚠️🇺🇸Pentagon, Musk's SpaceX close deal to provide Starlink to Ukraine (more) https://kyivindependent.com/pentagon-musks-spacex-close-deal-to-provide-starlink-to-ukraine/ #DontTrustMuskWithOurLives #Ukraine #NATO #Press #News #Invasion #Russia #Musk #ElonMusk #9yearsOfWarInUkraine #WantedDeadOrAlive #MuskBuyingUSElection
@carnage4life Past reporting has always characterized Ella Irwin as being pretty much lockstep with #Musk ideologically (as the new "incoming CEO" of #Twitter, Linda Yaccarino will also undoubtedly be).
In fact, Ella was the ringleader in launching the initial, unfounded attacks on Yoel Roth - causing Yoel to go into hiding for a while.
So, in fact, Musk's Twitter never had a VP of Trust and Safety anyways.
⚠️🇺🇸The Pentagon has signed a contract with Elon Musk's SpaceX to buy Starlink satellite communication terminals for Ukraine and services for their use by the Ukrainian military, Bloomberg reported. #Ukraine #NATO #Press #News #Musk #ElonMusk #Starlink #Invasion #Russia #9yearsOfWarInUkraine #WantedDeadOrAlive

Professor of Economics at Yale says the burden is on *you* to prove future tellers are wrong, not on future tellers.
Also provides the graph below to support his claims.
I bet #Musk fully agrees with him (2016, "self driving cars a reality in 5 years", humans on Mars by '29). Also Hinton (2016, "all radiologists jobless in 5 years")

The value of #Twitter, under the leadership of cryptofascist #Musk, has recently fallen to 1/3 of what he paid for it. Its fall continues https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2023/05/twitter-value-keeps-falling-under-musk-now-worth-a-third-of-what-he-paid/
🤣#Twitter is now worth only $15 billion, nearly a third of the $44 billion that Elon #Musk paid for the platform in 2022, according to Fidelity.
If you diss #Musk on #Twitter you give him #power through website/app interactions to continue his quest for a right wing global takeover.
If you diss #Elon on #Mastodon there’s fuck all he gets from it except laughed at.
Don’t be a tool to your own demise.
"Led by Musk and the cadres of sycophants who were internally referred to as the “transition team,” Twitter’s new leadership deliberately, specifically, and repeatedly announced their intentions to breach contracts, violate laws, and otherwise ignore their legal obligations"
Ah. So *that’s* the line in the sand.
Not the nazis. Not the fascists. Not the transphobes. Not the rampant misinformation. Not the worker abuses. Not the toxicity.
Hey #liberals on #twitter, you see now how #Turkey had its dictator reinstalled thanks, in no small part, to #Musk censoring #Erdoğan’s competition? He can only continue to do this while his social network has power, and that power comes from its users. #LeaveTwitter, Turkey is today, tomorrow is #USA, and the #world.
Also it’s no surprise that Twitter might leave the #EU, since Musk sides with Putin, once the US falls to fascism expect a war with Europe.
‘France’s Digital Minister Jean-Noël Barrot waded into a growing tussle between the #EuropeanUnion and Elon #Musk’s #Twitter… the minister said that the US company would be banned from the #EU if it refused to follow the incoming #EuropeanDigitalServicesAct, which goes into effect throughout the EU at the end of August. “Disinformation is one of the gravest threats weighing on our democracies,” said Barrot...’ | POLITICO https://www.politico.eu/article/banned-france-digital-minister-jean-noel-barrot-threatens-twitter-block-follow-eu-rules/amp/
Presumably, the individual in the article activated #FSDBeta.
Yes, I understand what the full name of that product is called, but there is no need to expand it.
Do not assist #Tesla and #Musk in their lies.
Additionally, I would argue that it is an ethical responsibility to note that these vehicles are not capable of “driving themselves”, at the very least.
The #SystemsSafety community has spent **years** publishing open content on these matters.
Gotta pay attention.
For the millionth time… editors, the #media and #journalists… a #Tesla vehicle is, **at no time**, capable of “self-driving”.
There is no “self-driving mode”.
Publishing these terms and descriptions only serve to advance Tesla’s and #Musk’s lies and are an immense public safety hazard.
Elon Musk might shut off Twitter entirely in Europe.
He has pulled Twitter from the EU's anti-disinformation agreement which would have required large digital platforms like Twitter to monitor and demonetize disinformation and bots, offer warnings about political advertising and fact-check information.

#Musk #Twitter #Mastodon #News
Theory I debuted on this week's Esquiring Minds (@emp):
The idea for #DeSantis to announce on #Twitter was no older than Tucker Carlson's move to Twitter (5/10). By his own admission, #Musk was not consulted. That gave #Musk the idea to further cater to the #FoxNews cretins.
That gave devs *at most* 2 weeks to prepare for a Spaces the two dullards believed would have millions of listeners.
Who wants to put these two at the helm of anything?
A day after #DeSantis launched his US presidential campaign on #ElonMusk 's #Twitter, he signed a law in #Florida that "gives tremendous leeway to private spaceflight companies, specifically shielding them from lawsuits relating to 'injury to or death of a participant or crew resulting from spaceflight activities' "
#Musk's #SpaceX already reaping the benefits of their CEO pushing #GOP left and right.
