There is no story more incendiary, for fun anyway, than Elon Musk’s acquisition of twitter. What started as Elon Musk joking about how he should run twitter, to him slowly acquiring more stock in the company until he was the primary holder, to him deciding he would buy it for a ridiculous amount of money, to twitter choosing to fight Musk from trying to acquire it, to Elon Musk deciding he no longer wanted to acquire it at the last minute, to Twitter suing Elon over no longer wanting to buy it, to Elon formally purchasing it was quite the story by itself. It was basically an HBO drama like Succession but in real life. Who would’ve thought that would be only the prologue to the horrifying story of Musk actually running the company?
It turns out that Elon Musk is not as idealized as everyone thought he was. His vision for the company has been nothing short of tyrannical. He began with huge layoffs, terrifying late night emails and some decisions that made almost no sense whatsoever. That included the blue check debacle which made it so much easier for people to fake being other people for a ridiculous fee.
Then there are the real motivations behind this buy. Did he purchase this place to create a future app that will be the end all be all for apps or was it just a massive ego attack?
So what is this whole Musk Twitter debacle anyway and why did he go for it? Only one way to find out!
