Did Elon really decide to splash the booster because there were seagulls on the boat?

Almost certainly no. We all saw the booster continue to show flames/engine activity after entry burn shutoff on the broadcast. So most likely explanation is a malfunction. Also, birds tend to fly away when really loud, hot bright things approach them. And finally, finally, that droneship was in international waters, I believe.
