I won’t write about the drama between Twitter and Musk. Though, an interesting interlude between the two parties. Twitter doesn’t want to sell itself, Musk doesn’t want to buy it – yet Twitter is taking a legal recourse to sell itself to an unwilling buyer.
Reaching a settlement requires Twitter to threaten convincingly that it’s prepared to close the deal, even if it means killing the company. Threats of webicide to public property are Musk’s only real source of leverage at this point. But since Twitter appears perfectly capable of knocking itself offline through its own ineptitude, there’s no real threat left at all.
Twitter serves no useful purpose. There are better avenues for “patient-support” if you have liberal credentials. Explore them. Not meta. It’s called as Telegram.
