Demnächst auf #Twitter: #ElonMusk erzählt, von ihm beauftragte Auftragnehmer fanden heraus: nicht fünf, sondern 21 Prozent aller Twitter-Accounts sind Bot-gesteuert. Daher erhält er sein Angebot nicht aufrecht. Auf einen niedrigeren Preis einigt man sich nicht. Der Deal platzt.
Ob das ganze Manöver ein Theaterstück war, um Aktienkurse zu manipulieren, weiß ich nicht, halte ich aber durchaus für möglich. Genauso möglich ist, dass #Musk aufgrund des Kryptowährungs-Crashs schlicht nicht mehr so liquide ist wie vor zwei Monaten.
Sehr wahrscheinlich ist hingegen, dass Musk inzwischen realisiert hat, dass er mit Twitter gar nicht viel anfangen kann. Der Wert ist nicht die Plattform, die besteht nur aus Standard-Web-Tech, der Wert sind die Nutzer*innen und vor allem: die Journalist*innen, die hier mitlesen.

Record Numbers of Americans Dying of Overdoses. Instead of Justice, We Get Theater👨‍⚖️

"Whole thing is kabuki theater, It ought to be about money" said Ausness. "About who pays what & instead they want to make Sacklers listen to people complain about them"…
Guggenheim joined several other museums last week w/an announcement they are removing the Sackler nameplate from their arts center,

Once again victims are being offered busy work as though it were meaningful reform.

#ElonsProblems - So Elon Musk's #TwitterTakeover coincides with #Tesla stock losing 35% of its value in five weeks. I know it will bounce back, but I feel like there's a little #karma in all this. :) Image

Here is my weekly @townhallcom Column ✍️

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was Right: Roe v. Wade was always destined for the Scrap Heap🗑️… @benshapiro @AbbyJohnson @madelineorr #conservative #elonmusk #abortion #prochoice #roe #RoeVWade #RoeOverturned
May be hard for my friends on the left to hear this,

our whole lives we've been told how important Roe v Wade was in giving women the right to abortion via a right to privacy

But this was fiction, the only question for Roe v. Wade was when it would be overturned, not if.
whatever ur opinion on abortion,

Roe v Wade was objectively bad law built upon the weakest case constitutionally

As RBG predicted,
Roe was always eventually going to be overturned… #politics #RoeVWade @CathyYoung63 @MrAndyNgo @ConceptualJames @amber_athey

Elon musk didn't found tesla, he invested in it and fired the original founders and stole credit for the roadster. The company would only go into bankruptcy when the founders were already long gone. And he only saved it with the help of government subsidies. Elon was privileged.
#ElonMusk father owned an emerald mine and Elon would boast about their lavish lifestyle. His father gave him and brother 28k to start Zip2, mother gave them 10k every month to pay bills.Co-founder Greg Kouri, was erased from history by Musk. Greg was the one that hired engineers
Greg was the one that hired engineers to rewrite the entire code for the site, because Elon's was so bad. The man is a pathological liar.

Elon pays other people to design concepts of cars and rockets.

Update #Ukraine .
Die Waffenlieferungen an #Kiew werden weiter angekurbelt. Militärexperten und Medien bezeichnen sie mittlerweile als "beispiellos".
Dennoch warnen USA: "die Zeit ist nicht auf ukrainischer Seite".
#Biden beantragt weitere Rekordsummen.
Thread 👇
Die Waffenlieferungen an die #Ukraine nehmen rasant zu.
Ein Dutzend Länder schickt mittlerweile auch schwere Waffen an die ukr.Truppen.
In Deutschland wurde der entsprechende Beschluss gestern offiziell vom Bundestag verabschiedet.
Die Entscheidung fiel aber schon vorher.
Zur Erinnerung.
Schon Tage zuvor wurde bekannt, dass Deutschland Flugabwehrpanzer #Gepard in die #Ukraine schicken wird.
Die Industrie fordert zudem die Lieferung von insgesamt über 100 Kampfpanzern vom Typ Leopard 1 und 2.

Hi @elonmusk your meeting with mining oligarch Luhut and his colleagues has caused great concern. There is a risk of conflict of interest of his business empire in the nickel mining industry behind his position as an Indonesian government official.
#ElonMusk #MeetingWithOligarchs
The nickel industry in Indonesia has (until now) damaged people's lives and the environment.

There is a potential conflict of interest in Luhut's meeting with Elon. Is Luhut's position as a government representative or for his business empire?…
During the meeting, Luhut's nephew was also present as the Deputy Managing Director of PT TBS Energi Utama Pandu Sjahrir. Pandu was assigned to manage PT TBS which is affiliated with Luhut as a shareholder.

Sur la notion de vérité, ou plutôt sur la modération, restons modestes. Parce que le problème, c'est qu'il n'y a pas une vérité, mais une centaine de législations différentes qui ont chacune un avis parfois très différent là dessus. #ElonMusk #Twitter #Censure #Libertedexpression
Rien qu'en Europe, avec le tout nouveau Digital Services Act, chaque pays européen est désormais en mesure de dicter aux réseaux sociaux ses règles de modération. Certains contenus censurés en Irlande ne le seront pas en France, et inversement.
Au passage, pour ceux qui s'attendaient à une dictature de la censure européenne, c'est raté, vous avez la démonstration que l'UE peut créer un cadre où chaque nation reste souveraine sur la régulation de la liberté d'expression de ses citoyens. Pas besoin de Frexit.

Elon Musk has always been intimidated by the thought of workers unionizing. And it's known to all that he's been making anti-union moves to create pressure and fear among his employees.


In 2018 he had tweeted threatening the workers of losing their stock options if they get unionized. A California Court had found this to be a blatant violation of labour laws, and had ordered him to delete the tweet, alongside other remedial measures.
He had also illegaly fired Richard Ortiz, an employee for being a part of a campaign called "Fair Future at Tesla." This again, was found by the NLRB to be unlawful and Tesla was ordered to take Ortiz back with full benefits.

My 2c on #ElonMusk #TwitterTakeover: If Musk implements his announcements, it means that Twitter can pack up here in Europe.
With free speech absolutism, he underestimates the consequences for our democracy and will clash with obligations under the EU's #DigitalServicesAct.
#ElonMusk will soon be confronted with the #DigitalServicesAct: content moderation in the EU must meet high standards & respect all fundamental rights. The #DSA contains many strict rules for the biggest platforms - and Twitter will very likely fall in the VLOPs category.
The #DigitalServicesAct means that Twitter has to invest in human content moderators, it has to comply with due diligence obligations, such as risk assessments of its service & algorithms for society. If he doesn't comply: there will be heavy fines!

Now that Elon is acquiring Twitter, there're lots of things to think about Twitter and its existence with other social media platforms especially in Indian context.

A thread ⬇️
First: What's so special about Twitter? Today, it's a melting pot of discourse-be it cultural, national or political.

Narratives start here. Memes originate here. News & Info. whether real or part of hybrid warfare begins here. Public pressure & outcry finds its mojo on Twitter.
So, the power to influence and create chaos rests with Twitter more than other social media giants despite its lower base. All the big-wigs of Indian government and industry are right here.

If we look at other social media platforms, Instagram

@umairh Raises great points.

But Medium is NO substitute for the egalitarian public platform Twitter has provided!

Medium’s paywall—and its requirement that posts be long form and “professional-caliber”—preclude its being a good communication or political organizing tool for us peons.
@umairh Can just anyone post a 280-character comment or a 25-comment thread on Medium—for free?
Can everyone who wants to do so on a given day or in a given hour do so?
Can everyone who might want to read such things do so—for free?

If not “yes” to all three, then no dice.
@umairh And also, any platform that doesn’t provide free space—to an unlimited number of users every day—for promoting business startups or the work of aspiring creatives or crowdfunding appeals or mutual aid or advice…
is no substitute for the #Twitter we know and love.

Das Grundproblem ist, dass die Plattformen/Zeitungen Großkonzernen & Milliardären gehören. Plattformen, auf denen öffentl. Diskurs/Infoaustausch stattfindet sind in privatem Besitz mit wenig Regulation. Private Öffentlichkeit. Egal ob #ElonMusk, andere Medien, andere Milliardäre
Egal ob Social Media oder Zeitungen - ein paar wenige Menschen *besitzen* den Großteil der Kommunikationswege. Man muss nicht mal systematischen Missbrauch annehmen, um die problem. Folgen zu sehen: Solange Profit das Ziel ist ( Unternehmen eben) ist das wichtiger als Fakten.
Fake News sind in einem System, in dem die Plattformen Unternehmer/n sind, ein feature, kein bug. Trump hat enorm viel Traffic & PR für Twitter geschaffen. FB greift spät & selten in Reichweiten (großer) notorischer Fake-Schleudern ein. Traffic ist Geld. Fakes sind Traffic.
