Elon’s Utter Failure With Twitter May Have Been Prevented If He’d Simply Learn The Classics

creation-of-elon-muskWhat number of Twitters would an Elon F**ok if an Elon may F**ok up Twitter?

One, however because it seems, he’s doing it remarkably rapidly. Twitter is shedding integrity quicker than a wheeled polyhedron’s windows being shattered with a steel ball and I’m 100% right here for it.


That is unbelievable. I forgot to say they removed the “official” badge and needed to deliver it again this morning at like 2 am due to all of the dangerous parody accounts LMAO

You see, that is what occurs to narcissistic tech sorts. You’re taking your emerald mine wealth, you launder it within the public imaginary as being self-made, revenue off of Technofeudalism and make folks suppose its since you’re sensible and never since you’re abusing “too huge to fail” financial techniques, and then you definately purchase your vainness undertaking.

Folks use this success story as a motivation to funnel funding into STEM (as a result of what are you doing in the event you’re not modeling kids’s futures after no matter billionaires are doing) and, as a chance price in an arbitrarily zero-sum academic system, funding is taken from the humanities.

Which is simply too dangerous, as a result of that’s what Musk’s downside in the end comes all the way down to — aesthetics. From making a hive thoughts (Neuralink), conquering the celebrities (Space X), to controlling the digital commons (Twitter), Musk has displayed wild levels of Hubris. And, nobody in his circle will inform him when he’s doing issues incorrect — as a result of he promptly fires them:


And in the event you’re pondering “Hey! That’s what you get whenever you appropriate a boss publicly — it ought to have been completed in non-public!”:

It’s exhausting to disclaim the reality (though Elon soiled deleted the tweets) that Chief Twit fired a dude as a result of the notion that somebody knew greater than him in public was too heavy a cross to bear:

Nobody shall be there to guard him when Nemesis comes. And by Nemesis I imply his multi billion greenback funding going stomach up very shortly after he touched arms on it.


This is the reason we want the humanities, folks! The commons are at stake with out them!

Anybody price their salt in aesthetics may have seen this coming a mile away again when he posted that accursed Elden Ring construct. TWO MED SHIELDS ELON?!

I’ll be trustworthy with you — I can’t see how this doesn’t hop fence into Elon’s different endeavors. His failure is its personal metaphor. The one cause he doesn’t have to fret concerning the threat that the “one time he let a $44B ego buy tank a secure, lengthy operating tech large inside 3 weeks time” will find yourself on Twitter is as a result of Twitter is the $44B ego buy that he tanked. It isn’t a query of if this shit will go viral, the query is when (properly, it technically is as a result of he might tank the platform the place it could go most viral). When his broad daylight failure hits the fan, do you suppose folks will nonetheless think about their Tesla inventory? Area X? Hell, I wouldn’t be shocked if Dr. Robotnik immediately distances himself from any association with emeralds after a fuck up this royal.

The perfect factor about this? A man whose present shtick is stoking the “Anti-Socialist Reasonable” sycophants who’re too afraid to brazenly admit that they’re simply simping for the richest man on this planet, may very well have pulled off one of many greatest left wins for anti capitalism in latest historical past.

Thanks, Comrade.
