Elon Muskiedoodle

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Same.

Haven't checked it out yet. You can't look at it without downloading the app.

:x It's like streaming football. Seems dumb for a service that's relying on ads.

Good point. Advertisers and others do like mined data.

Behind the staggering success of MrBeast

Somewhat interesting, but this stood out to me:
... After he quit school, his mother was so disappointed that she kicked him out of the house, he says.

But his decision paid off.

Seven years later, Donaldson, better known online as MrBeast, has 167 million YouTube subscribers – more than any other individual creator on the platform.

He has 85 million followers on TikTok and 39 million more on Instagram. And he just became the first person to reach 1 million followers on Meta’s new social app Threads, hitting the milestone before CEO Mark Zuckerberg. (He celebrated his achievement with a familiar gesture: by giving a Tesla to a random fan.)

At 25, he oversees a fast-growing empire that may be worth more than $1 billion....
:lol: Is the Tesla a dig at Elon, Zuck or both?

:lol: Ann-Margret is perfect, not just the song choice, but also her shrill and desperate agitation.
Twitter users are joking that they’re embarrassed by Elon Musk’s new ‘X’ logo, saying it looks like it belongs on a porn site

...Musk began his rebranding of the app on Monday when the platform’s iconic blue bird was replaced by a large “X” sign. He also said that tweets will now be referred to as “x’s.” ...
Virtual SpaceX?

X Marks The End


Bye bye, birdie.

Twitter, the text-based social media platform that played an outsized role on society by serving as a digital town square, was killed by its unhinged owner Elon Musk on Sunday. It was 17 years old.

A zombie Twitter, known only as X, reluctantly endures. A warped and disfigured platform, X marches on like a White Walker, an ugly shell of its former self under the command of a loathsome leader....

X is a platform where journalists are banned and smeared while the most repellant and dishonest voices are elevated....

So far, however, there is little hope Musk will be able to successfully steer the ship out of iceberg-ridden waters. He is, after all, the captain who led the ship into them — all while manically laughing alongside his inner circle while standing at the wheel.

Cool gif. I can't find where it's from.
Is it an actual funeral or Hollywood?
Is it the US or Africa?
Is it sincere or parody?

That's pretty cool that it did.

Yeah, my questions were mostly rhetorical. Given my reverse image search failure it may remain a mystery.

There really is something wrong with Elon besides his Aspergers.

Twitter under fire for reinstating account that posted child sex abuse

Supposedly Deon Estus funeral. May still not be real though. Here's the rest of it.
