Other Twitter employees expressed excitement over the new ownership—especially for the free White Claws now available in every break room.

Related, Tulsi Gabbard on shadow banning. I disagree with around 50% of what she says. I want to hear what she has to say.

Musk reached out to us before he polled his followers about Twitter's commitment to free speech. He wanted to confirm that we had, in fact, been suspended. He even mused on that call that he might need to buy Twitter. Now he's the largest shareholder and has a seat on the board.

Substack is hiring!

If you’re a Twitter employee who’s considering resigning because you’re worried about Elon Musk pushing for less regulated speech… please do not come work here.

"My name is Jackson Mulholland& I'm one of many ppl here working at @Twittein charge of developing terms &conditions for users.  We're not stripping away 'free speech', we're protecting users from bullies, bigots, & spam.Irefuse to work with or for @elonmusk. I'm resigning."

Doublethink?

Anyhow, relevant to that mindset:

"Any book worth banning is a book worth reading."
--Asimov

And I keep thinking of the so-called Hays Code for movies and books that were "banned in Boston."

Apparently people in Twitter's hometown are all... atweet.... about Elon buying into Twitter, and they're not happy.

Twitter employees are also upset, and apparently resignations are up.

Well, at least Substack is hiring.

Only they're not hiring whiney Twitter people.

Like Trump Musk has found trolling the left is super easy and fun if you know what buttons to push and you don't give a rat's arse what they say about you .
I expect them to call for a boycott of Tesla which will probably backfire just like it did with CFA

I was going to suggest Natter but there's a natter.com anyway.  Don't know what they "do," though, just found them on a check search.

I don't get out much.
