“Beyond Musk’s oft-repeated rants about free speech may lie shadier plans to recoup the $44bn he paid for the site.”

@shreddy_scientist I just read that is likely that he will get into GDPR problems. Currently the Irish rules apply. But in the future (due to the layoffs) it could happen that each European country can target Twitter directly. And especially you shouldn’t mess with the German authorities concerning data protection. It can really get very expensive for them (up to 4% of annual global turnover).

Will be a lot of fun.

Anyone here use Twitter? If not, only a problem for Musk and it’s employees.

I’m convinced he’s doing everything to burn it to the ground put it in bankruptcy as fast as possible.

Why do you think thats his end goal, a tax write off?

That, and to have more power to fundamentally alter it.

Maybe burn it to the ground and then relaunch after a complete rebuild around what he wants.

why not just make a separate platform then. he doesn’t get the legitamacy, established name or running infrastructure of twitter if he reboots it. best he’d get is the accounts, but if none of those are logged into again what are they good for?
