A friend of the attendant detailed the incident in a signed declaration. Twitter users asked why the friend would come forward years later, which Musk responded to by saying the friend "is a far left activist/actress in LA with a major political axe to grind."

Figures Hollywood would be involved.

Hulu just started running a documentary on Elon Musk title Crash Course, which looks at the limits of Tesla's self driving technology.

Timing seems... interesting.

BuT hE dIdNt Respond. 
Way to miss the point by a mile.

Musk did respond, just not to the reporter. He did so on twitter before the story was published and he obviously chose a good strategy for the current polarized environment. Basically declaring that 'anything bad you might hear about me is democrat fAkE nEwS' fits an existing narrative that will help immunize him against scandals real or fake.
In the moral, catatonic stupor America finds itself in today it is only disagreement we seek, and the more virulent that disagreement, the better.

Musk/Gates spat heating up

Quote
Research exclusively shared with Breitbart News identifies hundreds of millions of dollars flowing from Bill Gates’ foundation to 11 of the 26 organizations that signed an open letter last month urging Twitter advertisers to boycott the company if Elon Musk restores free speech on the platform.

I guess it's full-auto assault dollars now.

That damned tyrannical Musk, wanting everyone to knuckle under to that free speech bullshit.  Dammit, if I want to be censored, that's my privilege and prerogative, and Musk can go fly a kite with that free speech nonsense.  Dammit, we have enough freedoms as it is, we don't need any more!  Eleventy Cadrillions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw a blurb on twitter today with some pundit talking about social media and how the added access to the internet meant we may need to, quote "recalibrate our thinking on human rights, including free speech".  She was not being ironic.

I guess they're taking the "The 2nd Amendment only includes muskets" road.

One thing/motivation we seem to forget in all this is that some people want to be ruled.

I'm not sure Musk, sharp as he is, realizes this.

Yeah, but that quote sounds like it came from the minutes of a certain country in the 1930's.  Nice language from people who picture themselves and benevolent tyrannical dictators.

Hmmmm

Quote
The alleged bug was brought to light Tuesday morning by Tesla superfan Steven Mark Ryan. “Hey @elonmusk, twitter is FKING you,” the sharp-eyed watchdog wrote. “Dear everyone, SCROLL down on @elonmusk’s tweets & replies and tell me….. DO THEY STOP LOADING????

Ryan even made a Patreon video detailing the alleged digital disappearing act, along with a Twitter poll, in which 80% of respondents claimed that Musk’s “tweets stop loading after a short scroll.”
Quote
Indeed, after perusing the car magnate’s Twitter, The Post confirmed at the time of writing that his feed does not display any replies that are older than 17 hours and the earlier tweets only showed up after adjusting the settings to display only public tweets.

Because she is about the same level of intelligence as Wiley.  AOC is the type of person that, if the power to go out and she smelled gas, she would strike a match to light her way out.  >:D  :facepalm:

Musk is again threatening to walk away from the Twitter purchase due to them not releasing realistic data on the percentage of bots on the platform.
