The Social Revolution.
I’m sure this won’t be breaking news to you, but that Tony Stark-wannabe South African bloke is buying Twitter for a modest $44bn. And some people aren’t too happy about that. In fact, quite a few high-profile names have said that they plan to leave their platform should the deal go through. First there was… ah, sh*t, what was their name again? Then, erm, so-and-so expressed their concerns, swiftly followed by some serious words of lament from Thingymabobby Jackson. I’m sure Mr. Musk is terrified that a semi-recurring character from the third season of How I Met Your Mother is thinking about jumping ship. The vision behind the takeover is to make Twitter a “digital town square” that is “maximally trusted and broadly inclusive”, champions free speech, and debates “matters vital to the future of humanity”. He’s also adding an ‘edit’ button. Sounds absolutely awful, you can see why it’s so controversial. Saying that, I’ll be willing to eat these words if he does end up taking over the world.Read Original Story
