    It appears it was Shotwell who made the call here, either way.

    Then we can probably agree that comments like this are hyperbolic and also outright incorrect - many of us have run (very successful) businesses, and done so in different ways. And you clearly won't fire them, period. I knew you were more reasonable than you were insinuating for effect.

    Sorry, I was going off of this: I didn't see those opinions or the stuff in the slack channel as being passive aggressive and making other employee's lives difficult. But I don't work at Twitter. Your comments about your work environment do make it sound very much like a top down dictatorship...

    I owned my own business and retired at 40 from it. We had a ton of fun and enjoyed loads of arguments about our differing opinions. My employees constantly pushed back on me because I was a workaholic maniac and expected similar from them. I'm glad they did because I'd have a lot of...

    There are certainly better ways to advocate for change than to circulate public letters and make strong headed demands. The only way something like this would have teeth is if you had a majority of the workforce sign on.

    Isn't it typically a part of high school curriculum? We had to read it when I went to high school in the 80s.

    It’s quoted above in @FlatSix911’s excerpt. He said ideally, though, which I think is an aspirational concept and probably not a realistic goal.

    I think Twitter has underperformed in its category, and I've been clear about that. That said, we were talking about subscription models, not selling ads. I personally don't see a strong path forward for that model on the current platform, and I don't think "exclusive content" is going to make a...

    Disney+ has actual production content. Are you suggesting Twitter would become a production company? Because no, I would not sign up for some “behind the scenes” content. There is plenty of non-production quality video out there for free and I can’t imagine paying for something like TikTok.

    I’m probably naive because I don’t really use it, but would enough people really pay to use Twitter, of all platforms? It seems like a wild idea to me, but I also hate almost any subscription service.

    To add to the above or simplify a bit - it only counts users who interact through a facility that can serve ads, meaning Twitter.com or the app (mostly). It's a metric intended to exclude all of the bots that are active on Twitter (which is why the number is below 5%) in order to express some...

    Do you mean you're hopeful that Twitter was misreporting or that his misunderstanding of mDAU is clarified to the point he decides to walk?

    I don't believe this is accurate, based on my knowledge of previous M&A lawsuits. If the Board acquiesces to a lower Musk et al deal, but didn't need to do so, they can be sued for fiduciary irresponsibility. The only case in which they would be without risk is if there is indeed some...

    I don't pretend to be intimate with the details, but I'll go out on a limb and guess that Twitter is going to have a legally defensible position with the "monetizable" adjective in the clause. They may have a hard time with that defense (I see Skadden is representing Elon et al), but it's my...

    Monetizable is a pretty strong word in the clause.

    It is probably in the slightly below break-even range, but I did it in order to lower my personal GHG emissions. And I can always add PV. There are some external benefits outside of cost.

    I'd argue his unlikeliness to change is much more about being on the spectrum than it is about being 50. As I mentioned upthread, the end-of-history illusion is just that.

    I founded and ran a finance company that was entirely work from home - we had no physical offices for the 12 years we were in business before we sold and I retired. It’s absolutely doable, but your points about team building are well taken.

    That's a question for the admins, and you're welcome to recommend it in Site Feedback. Moderators are just volunteers. If you think there's value in a politics only thread, we could theoretically unlock the train wreck that is the Politics Quarantine and let people have at it. My personal...

    I'd like to take the opportunity to reiterate and clarify two points in @ggr's note upthread when it was temporarily locked. Politics are prohibited at TMC. This thread is about Elon's Twitter deal, not Elon's tweets. I've been relatively loose about the first rule in this particular thread...

    FYI, I almost always move posts to either Politics - Quarantine Thread or Snippiness 2.0 for the reason you mention.

    I have a Mitsubishi 48k BTU unit outdoors with a SVZ air handler and a MLZ flush-mount ceiling cassette in my living/kitchen. I still have ports available to add a ceiling cassette in our master bedroom, but the kids haven't left home yet and if we're cooling/heating our bedroom, we're heating...

    I also ran my new heat pump in AC mode last night for the first time and had very similar power draw. Also, the new air handler is variable speed and it was a really nice change from my previous setup where I'd have ice cold air whistling through the vents and cycling regularly. We used to be...

    I’ve heard you say it. He’s not doing a good job of endearing all customers - at all. Twitter has been underrepresented in the social media valuation circle for a long time, for good reason. What better way to increase valuation than to take a political side as you purchase an asset!
  33. ohmman

    Elon & Twitter

    LOL. Nice effort but that’s not a sound purchase. He’s smarter than that. You don’t buy something for that price to start over. You just start it.

    The number is $54.20. Elon is looking for wiggle room because market dynamics have changed, but he is in a really poor legal situation. Because if he tries to renegotiate, it's already been established that a deal with Elon isn't worth anything. HE is the one who can be sued if he tries to...

    You can bash Elon all you want for decisions he's making. Just leave the politics out of it. If you look back through this thread, you'll see plenty of opinions that aren't supportive of the man, including those of my own. Also, I always recommend going through the Politics link to validate...

    Politics have always been forbidden at TMC and that rule has been part of the Terms since the site's inception. Generally speaking, political posts are moved to Politics - Quarantine Thread and are available for copy/pasting back anything that is apolitical into the non-quarantined threads...

    Maybe because the moderator is weed whacking and mowing a field while trying to moderate from their phone. I suggest checking out that politics quarantine thread and restating whether or not attacks from the left or right are being singled out. I think you’ll find representation of both there...

    Nobody here is changing anything about Elon, but 50 years old doesn't mean anything. Look up the End of History Illusion - we don't stop changing, really at any age. When people are asked how much they will change in the coming decade, they underestimate drastically. And we should all be pretty...

    I appreciate the efforts here but you’re referencing a single meta (inasmuch as I can tell) that has multiple studies that contradict it. Asperger’s (again, no longer a diagnosis), even if we take your single reference at face value, does not by any means “guarantee” a higher IQ than a...

    Elon & Twitter

    ASD correlates with a lower IQ than the neurotypical population. The retired (but colloquially relevant) term “Asperger’s” seems to exceed that but only coming close to the neurotypical population. There are outliers and the “special interest” aspect of the condition can make them look brilliant...

    And in my opinion, the briefer you have to be, the more likely you are to diverge from that human to human type conversation. Hence Twitter’s divisiveness problem.

    Elon & Twitter

    Once again, Twitter's number had caveats, and Elon is comparing against the broad membership and overlooking those caveats. I'm suspecting they can show that the filings are reasonably accurate with their constraints in place (active, daily, monetizable), and I'm guessing Elon knows this. So I...
