    Damn, no horror movie director, no matter how imaginative, could create this macabre scenario...and it's reality.

    This is brilliant. He's smart. If he buys it, it becomes a free for all WWF space that I'd actually read for entertainment. If they refuse his offer, the infighting that decision creates among the top shareholders tears Twitter apart in a short span.

    Well done, Elon.

    so is twitter a buy?
    i think in the inevitable turmoil of a buyout it just could be
    seems to me that for every dollar investing another is selling off atm

    I'd imagine it's a volatile stock and I wouldn't mess with it since I know so little of the market.

    This Musk dude is a ball breaker, man. What he's doing is uncommonly gutsy and brazen.

    Any company that goes up as significantly as Twitter did from one guy investing in the company is a shit company. Regardless of who the one guy is.

    If Musk buys the company for $54.2/share, you get cashed out at $54.2/share. If Musk doesn't buy the company then proceeds to dump his stock, the stock goes in the toilet IMO.

    Cannot and will not tell anybody what to do, only stating I would not touch Twitter.

    i never go in more than 1k on anything for the most part so its moderate risk/reward
    this one is very different in that you're almost betting on the man and whether you believe he'll pull it off
    if the sale starts to go through the stock is going to go down like it always does on a buy out or at least it should
    that's where i'd likely toss down a few shekels

    I say that about everything Elon touches, but look at what Tesla has done.
    And SpaceX is valued over $100B without a single shred of a sustainable business model in anything they've ever done.

    I keep waiting for Adam Smith's invisible hand to make a fist...

    It is take over time.
    Consolidation.
    Hostile or otherwise.
    Of course you dont say hi with hostile intent.
    It all depends how they say hi back.
    Like the old indian said... its all about the how.
    Im all about that.

    If he buys the company invest in doge.
    The toy that he will make a living boy.
    He will use twitter to influence BTC and ETH negatively.
    And raise doge incredibly.

    That is what the numbers say.

    Did you ever see any of your nerdy students hauling around cards of a poke like game called magic the gathering?
    Ask them if they believe Musk operates in any way that is weird.

    In the past you needed a good pker face to excel in business.
    But now the game has changed and you need to be experienced in the colors of magic and the value of the numbers and how they all combine perfectly in sync with the rules... except then you also need to know how to stack keywords so that you can break every rule known to magic without falling into the traps of wizardry.
    Keywords stacking is how you beat nerds at their own game.
    And that is what im into.

    thing is he has them in checkmate as far as i can figure out
    if they don't sell it will piss off the shareholders and probably end in lawsuits
    plus if he can't do what he intends and sell off his shares the stock tanks in the near term
    good fun and not a moment too soon

    they trying to get saved by a big tech investor
    but these companies would get have monopoly issues if they get twitter
    tesla diversifies into so many different sectors that he cant get into anti trust trouble easily

    my initial thoughts of tesla was that he was going to become a supervillain one day
    slowly creeping up as your friend before you realized he was grooming you the whole time
    when he went into solar it cemented it for me
    because of its literal/scientific meaning AND its symbolic/prophetic understanding
    but putting it electromagnetically or simply how sparks fly the closer you come in contact with a hot foreign body... we are pulling the matter of the sun closer to us with every gigawatt
    you already used to zombies walking the streets, vampires hiding in the shadows, and every bridge turned into a trolls house
    wait till the sun mutates the morlocks and they have to take refuge underground hiding from the zombies, vampires, trolls and other real characters out there

    only nobody believes me when i say that we are attracting the physical solid matter of the sun through light rays which are heavy and slough off in our atmosphere as the pure light of the rays shines down but is followed by the radioactive fallout caused by the focusing of the photons being pulled into one terminal point (earth) like a laser

    but then nobody reads fairy tails anymore
    much less believes in the mirror mirror on the wall
    but then thats just the enemies favorite trick

    its gonna suck for many if the hero of full, pure, uncontrolled, unregulated laissez-faire capitalism turns out to be lex luthor like in the comics

    because then the people gonna want an angel of light to lead them
    and ubermen marks the beginning of the end of the world
    but luckily they gonna be plenty of rubermen rising from the dirt when that happens

    but anything he touches is gonna make you us dollars and as long as us dollars are still the thing then his ideas are a good place to put your us dollars
    because the civilized world surely still wants our clean us dollars instead of dirty russian war crime rubles.
    but that cancel dragon always makes a pass back to eat his own followers who flag its flames up never thinking theres gonna be a natural backdraft once the dragon stolen all the oxygen outta a a third of the world then called the third world making the people of the dragon martial martians sons of the nation of ares the god of war and enemies of earthlings who are of the dirt of the third rock from the sun and not the second or the fourth much less the first which makes your mercury rise and tells you which way is the deep end when you are under pressure

    and like you said, timing is everything

    The sea peoples who begin the bronze age are the same pirates that own all the ports and cities by the shores and are infiltrating the surburban valleys where the people of the land live raping and pillaging all the real estate in sight so they can continue to pillage once the attacks are civilized into orderly tax law or some other kind of regularly scheduled tribute.

    its not too hard to fix twitter i don't think
    in Jan of 21 they banned Trump and traded at $77 a share
    one year later they traded in the low $30s
    they shot themselves in the foot over liberal dogma
    its either free speech or it isn't

    did you hear the news
    lightbulbs last forever
    but they dont sell those anymore
    the big lighbulb company bought them out
    and hid the patent deep in catacombs filled with lawyers and snakes
    luckily thats also where they hide other things fantastic mr diablo
    like invisible women, powerful things, and even a human holding a torch
    so we can see when namor and his backward spelling sea peoples come to invade with promises of love
    but carrying guns behind the roses
