Elon Musk buys Twitter for $44bn

I can't abide the bloke. I hope people abandon his platform and someone invents a much more successful one instead, making his 44 billion worth about as much as a 19 year old BMW 318i with the wheels missing.

The only reason he did it is to stop a teenager reporting all the flights his private jet takes.

Billionaires need to be taxed out of existence I'm afraid.

Not really ag related, but the tears of outrage from the progressives are quite delicious.
He's promised to make the Twitter algorithms open source, which is surely good considering most of the worlds journalists take their narrative from Twitter.

If Musk makes Twitter more representative and inclusive of real life, it can only be good, I might even rejoin.
