    The worlds most delicate and sensitive man has decided "cisgender", which is a simple neutral descriptor, is now a slur.

    The full-grown right wingers are not alright, y'all.
    What a bunch of cissies.

    Tranny-and trans adjacent slurs- was something I copped quite a bit before tossing twatter out, as that was never enough for me to have replies deleted through reporting. It'll be pretty funny if cissies gets more protection lmao.

    Pluhease TESLA... i needz 50 billionz. Famous for not wanting to spend on advertising, is now advertising... why Elon deserves his $50 billion.
    The only thing that could have made this better is if he added the opening bars of Gary Jules' cover of "Mad World" to the still shot, like that's literally the only way this clown car could get funnier.

    Totally convinced that he took out loans on the scale of that payout years ago when he was first awarded it and he is in very deeply leveraged shit if he doesn’t get it

    So we have an explanation why Elon got rid of the whole entire-ass Supercharger team.

    The division chief said he wouldn't do more layoffs.

    Looks like since then, he sobered up a bit and realized "Oh shit, I need a network of chargers for my electric cars to sell!" and has apparently rehired part of the team, but I really hope those folks are dusting off their resumes to move somewhere else, lest they be fired again next time Elon goes on a brainrot induced firing spree.

    It's an especially hilarious move to get rid of the Supercharger group, since GM and Mercedes decided to adopt Tesla's charging tech for their EVs and are reliant on them to keep building chargers.

    So that same thing he did at Twitter when he realized that his blind firings included a lot of important people who actually kept things running and he rushed to rehire them?

    I'm so glad the Pentagon has to ask him for permission for things in space. The fact that any companies proprietary charging solution was "accepted" and there isn't a universal standard (sup, USB Implementers Forum!) that's not solely controlled by a singular company is also very great and totally not a ticking time bomb under this fuckin drugged out lunatic.

    More bad news that I'm sure Musk knew about long ago. Teslas used to have a long waiting list, at least several months to get your own Tesla. Now Tesla is having to rent out parking lots of abandoned malls to store their excess vehicles that aren't selling. Wonder how the investors think this is gonna turn out as more and more we find out that Teslas are just expensive poorly made toys with lots of flaws.

    You know, if a woman were to act like Musk, pretty sure she'd be under a conservatorship already.

    So he posted this "gotcha" about twitch



    But as most replies rightfully say, it's the exact same on X, pretty much every post has someone posting "my nudes in the profile", before elom bought twitter this wasn't an issue.

    Lets see how long he keeps the tweet up.

    And replying to anything gets you a follower or two a day of accounts that are just Only Fans advertising
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.

    It also misses who watches.
    It's supply and demand.

    If, as those who rant about it calls them, "titty-streamers" didn't get enough views and shit. They wouldn't exist.

    And it's mostly men who watch!

    Yet they mad about women.

    Damn women and them abusing their sex appeal in a profitable way! It's all their fault! They are the reason I sin! *Insert angry gibberish here*

    What the fuck has been happening to Twitter lately?

    Like the porn bots have been bad enough, but now anytime I open my feed I have to block 50 to 60% of the recommended posts because they are either literal racists, some blue checkmark guy writing an essay about why women should marry at 14, some asshole simping for a third world dictator or whatnot.

    It's like the algorithm seems to completely disregard any kind of preference I have might have and just floods me with insane shit.

    The only reason I haven't nuked it yet is because I keep track of the situation in Ukraine through some of the people I follow. But the actual app is otherwise totally unusable.

    The entire moderation team got fired, all the shitty racists got unbanned, and most of the reasonable people have moved on to Bluesky or Threads or something else.

    I only use the 'Following' tab these days. 'For You' is an absolute dumpster fire to be avoided at all costs.

    I logged into Twitter for the first time since Musk bought it today. Only reason I did so was because I was entering a sweepstake that required a Twitter follow.

    Immediately after logging in, I see these things front and centre:

    1. A post from Elon Musk's account at the very top, showing Harambe and Doge. I don't follow Musk.
    2. A video showing a naked guy skydiving with his junk flapping in the wind and clearly visible.
    3. A topless pic from an Onlyfans operator.
    4. A bunch of people dancing, including women with very visible breasts.

    I didn't click anything to see this stuff, and my account follows almost nothing. The site has gone to the dogs. How ANY advertiser continues to spend there, I do not know.

    Shocking stuff.

    So Elon Musk has been asking for a compensation package that would give him more of Tesla's shares, thus more power over Tesla. This has long been in the works, and after Elon Musk sold Billions in Tesla stocks to pay for Twitter while both Twitter and Tesla are seemingly tanking in value, he is now demanding a compensation package as a reward for his crucial role in... Tesla.

    Elon Musk, after his stock selloff, owns about 13% of Tesla stocks. He's demanding a compensation package that would bring him up to 18%, and more recently Musk has confirmed that this is indeed a threat, and claims he won't bring things like AI and self driving cars if he doesn't own at least 25% of Tesla, which would mean giving him a compensation worth tens of billions.

    https://electrek.co/2024/05/20/elon-...o-ai-robotics/

    My opinion? I hope the other share holders kick Musk to the curve and start making decisions that benefit the company and not just Musk. But it seems a lot of Tesla shareholders are cucked Elon simps who want this to happen.

    Every single day the right wing culture war continues to convince me that it's all a big personality cult.

    He's on the board of directors or some such shit for Tesla, yes? Wouldn't threatening to cripple the company by withholding shit he probably doesn't actually have the rights to withhold basically be a complete violation of his fiduciary duties as a board member and a pretty open and shut case for booting him off the board, and possibly out of the company entirely?

    Like, I would think that all the people ACTUALLY RESPONSIBLE for developing that shit would be livid to find out that the Muskrat is using their life's work as a bargaining chip to line his own pockets this blatantly.

    Goes without saying that he won't be involved in creating any of those. In fact, I suspect they'd probably turn out better without him, given what we've seen about how Twitter operates now he's in charge.

    Sack him and get in someone competent who doesn't politically alienate the section of the population who actually buy's his company's cars.

    Weren't there supposed to be fleets of self-driving taxis on the road like 5 years ago? Not much of a threat when you never fulfill your promises in the first place.
