    Default Elon Musk releases the Twitter files


    Elon Musk Walks Into Twitter HQ With Sink


    By infostormer -October 26, 2022

    "It looks as if Elon Musk is finally going to take over Twitter. He posted a video of himself walking into Twitter’s HQ with a sink."




    Twitter employees are freaking out. They wrote a letter demanding that Musk respect their dignity.

    The Full Text of Open Letter





    "This type of poor attitude is exactly why Musk has been talking about firing up to 75 percent of the staff. Thousands of the people who work at Twitter likely have jobs focused around censoring and banning people for having thoughts they consider wrong.

    If they really wanted to keep their jobs, they would be showing Musk how they bring value to the company. They wouldn’t be making childish demands like this which proves that most of these people are dead weight.

    <snip>

    The first thing he should do is unban Ye."

    meanwhile, the financial world has worked itself into a tizzy!





    Musk Plans to Cut Twitter Workforce by 75%, Washington Post Says

    Bloomberg reports:

    "Elon Musk’s plans for Twitter Inc. involve slashing its staff by nearly 75% in a matter of months, according to documents obtained by the Washington Post.

    Musk, whose $44 billion purchase of the social network is set to close by Oct. 28, would reduce Twitter’s staff to just more than 2,000 people, compared with the 7,500 it currently employs, the Post reported, citing Musk’s comments to prospective investors. Musk had told investors he planned to shrink staff in his initial pitch to bankers for funding, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg in April.

    The billionaire, also chief executive officer of Tesla Inc., earlier this month said he would follow through with his agreement to take Twitter private, ending a months-long court battle over the deal. Even if Musk doesn’t end up owning Twitter, the company would need to trim its workforce to cut costs, according to the Post."

    source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...gton-post-says


    let it not be said that Musk doesn't know how to make an entrance

    and employees who would like to keep their jobs might want to revisit protocols on job security

    stock prices today were $53.35, a bit lower than his purchase cost of $54.20

    time will tell if his actions match his words

    millions will be watching as investors hold their breath

    enjoy the show!

    We should defend our way of life
    to an extent that any attempt on it is crushed,

    so that any adversary
    will never make such an attempt in the future.

    Elon likes China social media too much which makes me nervous.


    Elon "They have been working on an 'edit button' for a year. Well it's hard! It's a tricky situation."

    Interviewer "Edit is incredibly complex."

    Elon "Yes good one, indeed. I mean we don't even have, uh, a, an app that's as good as WeChat in China, and like in China you can live on WeChat, basically. It's like anyone who has been there, you live on WeChat , you do payments, you do everything; it's like... it's great. WeChat is kickass, and um, we don't have anything like WeChat outside of China. So I was like, my idea would be like how about if we just copy WeChat. Copy them!"

    Interviewer "1) buy Twitter 2) copy WeChat."

    Elon "Yeah, pretty much"

    Interviewer "3) Profit"

    Elon "*chuckles* yes"

    Add in that Elon wants Twitter to be full of unique humans. Not just 'humans', unique humans. It's not a good sign. (cross thread link)


    But it's not stopping me enjoying the legal disruption Elon's causing, popcorn in one hand and flipping Elon the bird with the other.

    I think you hit the nail on the head,Mathew!!!!No one is going get so much cooperation from this system without the system gaining from it. Why not get a guy who looks like he's for the people and when you compare him to gates or zuckerberg he seems extremely likable. If in reality he was in any way against this system and what is going on he wouldn't get the cooperation that he does. They need someone to lead the lemmings off the cliff. Or maybe the pied piper.. he is entertaining in the way he ruffles the feathers of the woke, I do admit that as well.And he really is likable, but so was Ted Bundy.

    this is where he updated his status:




    Elon Musk Just Changed His Status to "Chief Twit"
    While Carrying a Sink to Twitter HQ


    “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!”

    "Elon Musk has officially made his grand entrance to the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. It was on-brand for the billionaire with the announcement as Musk first took to Twitter to declare himself as “Chief Twit” where it was followed by a video of him walking through the lobby carrying a sink — the caption read, “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!”

    According to Fortune, Musk told co-investors that he plans on closing the $44 billion USD deal by Friday, and this gesture at Twitter is most likely his way of teasing that news. This move has also been met with some positive movement in Twitter’s stock, which is a recovery from the sharp drop the stock took late October when it was revealed that Musk would plan on laying off roughly 75% of the staff at Twitter once under his leadership."

    so he's got everyone in a tizzy

    audacious employees (most likely woke) who seem to think DEMANDS are a strategic move

    MUSK doesn't come across as the sort that is motivated by DEMANDS

    in fact, he put out the possibility of terminating employment for about 75% already

    to quote him directly:

    "let THAT sink in ..."

    enjoy

    BREAKING: Elon Musk Officially Owns Twitter –
    Immediately Fires CEO Parag Agrawal,
    CFO and Legal Head Vijaya Gadde

    Gateway Pundit:

    "Elon Musk and Twitter reached a deal on Thursday.

    Musk is the official owner of Twitter.

    Elon Musk purchased Twitter for $54.20 per share – or about $44 billion.

    “Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and finance chief Ned Segal have left the company’s San Francisco headquarters and will not be returning, sources said.” – According to CNBC.

    Vijaya Gadde was also fired on Thursday."




    Insider reported:

    "Elon Musk is now the owner of Twitter.

    Thursday evening, Twitter and Musk formally closed on the billionaire’s offer to take the company private by paying $54.20 per share, equal to about $44 billion, sources close to the deal told Insider. Musk made a U-turn on the offer in October, after spending months trying to pull out of the agreement. The same evening, Musk also ousted CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal the sources said.

    Musk has been at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters this week, meeting with workers and holding impromptu discussions with them in the cafe, Insider reported. An all-hands meeting is expected to take place on Friday.

    As a result of the new deal, Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk over the $44 billion purchase will come to an end after Twitter files for the case to be dismissed in the Delaware Court of Chancery, University of Michigan business law professor Erik Gordon said.'


    Recall, Vijaya Gadde, an immigrant from India who hates the First Amendment, was behind the censorship of conservatives and Trump supporters."








    Vijaya Gadde

    In her role she allowed the Ayatollah of Iran to promote hate speech on the platform but she took down the account of the leader of the free world, President Donald Trump.

    Good riddance.

    article source: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/202...-vijaya-gadde/

    i have to agree with Gateway Pundit ... good riddance

    i am, however, perplexed at the length of time and extreme tolerance of the planet

    to allow being censored and controlled in the blatant way that was done

    perhaps, a single occurrence .. but not continuously ... over the span of years ... ?

    when you see me make a continual effort to reconnect people with their power

    and continuously reference the fact that maintaining PERSONAL power

    is INTRICATELY tied to and CANNOT be separated from world events

    it is because it IS so

    the power is NOT theirs

    it is OURS




    ****

    repost from here:

    ALLOWANCE IS one of the PRIMARY reasons the parasites ARE in power today

    WE ALLOWED it

    WE
    tolerated it

    and WE are not only experiencing the consequences OF this ALLOWANCE and TOLERANCE

    we bear RESPONSIBILITY for that

    because we ARE response-ABLE

    BY "allowing" and "tolerating" not only are we ACQUIESCING?

    we are giving IMPLIED consent

    we don’t' get to complain about conditions WE ARE FOSTERING

    AND ENABLING


    if experiencing the effects of negative CHOICES were a certainty?

    how long do you think those type of choices would continue?

    Musk posts letter to advertisers

    members here, might recall ...

    WE were the first to launch the assault on Twitter a while back

    to plant the seed to bring the giant to its knees

    (here)

    our strategy?

    advertisers













    so ... immediately ... a concern of Musk's?

    is advertisers ...

    looks like (once again) Project Avalon members were not only right?

    but WAY ahead of the curve

    way to go team!

    cus if he doesn't come through?

    we can STILL implement this ...

    and then BOTH of them can be mutually concerned

    I forgive you, Mike, for that downer of a post. ~8O

    Makes sense, in a way, but why focus on a negative? 🧐

    I hope you let go emotions that make you sound tortured. 🤣

    what Mike stated is an ACCURATE depiction of reality

    there is what we would like

    and THEN, there is what is SO

    what in stating TRUTH is in need of YOUR forgiveness?




    (thank you beautiful O Donna here)


    if your interpretation of that is that it is a downer?

    then i pray that you see it as MOTIVATION to TRANSFORM that

    i, too, see EXACTLY what Mike sees

    and AFTER seeing that?

    i speak ... to EVERYONE .. EVERY person who crosses my path do i try to give them something

    and i am both humbled and oh ... so very, very grateful

    when they find value in it

    intention is important, there is a difference in sharing information i know they dont have ..

    it is giving and that is usually appreciated


    it is IMPOSSIBLE to TRANSFORM

    what is not even acknowledged ..


    SEEING it ... is ALWAYS the first step my friend

    Elon Musk Walks Into Twitter HQ With Sink


    By infostormer -October 26, 2022

    "It looks as if Elon Musk is finally going to take over Twitter. He posted a video of himself walking into Twitter’s HQ with a sink."




    Twitter employees are freaking out. They wrote a letter demanding that Musk respect their dignity.

    The Full Text of Open Letter





    "This type of poor attitude is exactly why Musk has been talking about firing up to 75 percent of the staff. Thousands of the people who work at Twitter likely have jobs focused around censoring and banning people for having thoughts they consider wrong.

    If they really wanted to keep their jobs, they would be showing Musk how they bring value to the company. They wouldn’t be making childish demands like this which proves that most of these people are dead weight.

    <snip>

    The first thing he should do is unban Ye."


    source here: https://infostormer.com/elon-musk-wa...-hq-with-sink/


    meanwhile, the financial world has worked itself into a tizzy!





    Musk Plans to Cut Twitter Workforce by 75%, Washington Post Says

    Bloomberg reports:

    "Elon Musk’s plans for Twitter Inc. involve slashing its staff by nearly 75% in a matter of months, according to documents obtained by the Washington Post.

    Musk, whose $44 billion purchase of the social network is set to close by Oct. 28, would reduce Twitter’s staff to just more than 2,000 people, compared with the 7,500 it currently employs, the Post reported, citing Musk’s comments to prospective investors. Musk had told investors he planned to shrink staff in his initial pitch to bankers for funding, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg in April.

    The billionaire, also chief executive officer of Tesla Inc., earlier this month said he would follow through with his agreement to take Twitter private, ending a months-long court battle over the deal. Even if Musk doesn’t end up owning Twitter, the company would need to trim its workforce to cut costs, according to the Post."

    source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...gton-post-says


    let it not be said that Musk doesn't know how to make an entrance

    and employees who would like to keep their jobs might want to revisit protocols on job security

    stock prices today were $53.35, a bit lower than his purchase cost of $54.20

    time will tell if his actions match his words

    millions will be watching as investors hold their breath

    enjoy the show!

    I find the phenomena of many of the "woke" culture very interesting. That is the aspect that they can make demands that things be the way they think they should be or they are walking out.In the corporate world no one is irreplaceable, no one. That Musk is met with a number of employees fueled with righteous indignation is humorous. In all of my career at any position, no matter how well I was liked or how specific my training was that made me an asset that was of definite value to the place I worked never believed that I was irreplaceable.That I could stamp my feet and have a temper tantrum and everything will be modified to accommodate my desires about the way I want reality.

    I don't know if that is a good or bad or indifferent thing, but it is interesting. So many" woke" extremists seem to feel that having a hissy fit will alter reality to accommodate them rather than accepting the fact that things change and I might be the one who needs to decide if I am willing to accept the change or attempt to negotiate differences or move on to something else that matches my values. I'm afraid that this concept that everyone gets an award mentality promoted with children ( I have to admit that I participated in that until I began to see the outcome it had) has reaped this kind of behavior. "I get things my way or I'm walking out". The idea that reality needs to mold itself to my comfort level is guaranteed to create huge psychological challenges.

    I find this part of the whole thing fascinating. There may end up being a group of people that didn't realize how good they had it, and there will be any number of competent people waiting in the wings to take their position with gratitude whether they agree with everything Musk is or says or they don't. They recognize a job opportunity and meet it with gratitude rather than righteous indignation.

    I suppose having a job such as a "fact checker" does give one a sense of authority about the world. Getting to create a pretend world that pushes a certain belief system that accommodates very few must be very intoxicating to some and the won't let that go easily after all, they know it all.

    who, to me?

    EMBODY this
    Totally agree

    It's OK to point out things that can be perceived as negative. It sheds light on outstanding problems. Problems need acknowledgment otherwise how can solutions be worked on and implemented?

    In other words what Iota said
    "Without the human request, nothing will happen."

    "This must never be forgotten, that the human has the power to prevail."
