Unsurprisingly, Fenix is now dead as Twitter have now (un)officially killed off third party apps.

I think that's pretty much all of them gone now.

Don't believe what I tweet says Elon.

This allegedly relates to the real reason he bought Twitter.

For years now it has been said that Musk has been using Twitter to manipulate stock prices by cliamining an interest in buying stocks he is actually selling, saying he is divesting from companies he never held any stock in and shorting them and indicating this or that company is due to get a big order that never materialises but benefiting from the increase in the stock price.

Were Elon Musk to do any of those things in traditional media it would be a slam dunk fraud case - no questions asked - the full Bernie Madoff scenario and off to a lifetime vacation at Club Fed.

He didn't do them in traditional media he did them on Twitter.

He also put up posts and then deleted them and then referred to deleted posts - basically a lot of what he did was very, very shady and Twitter were going to turn over thousands of records they kept to the SEC.

And now those records aren't available, the people who used to know where they were work elsewhere and Twitter has policies that will be very obstructive to any investigation of his alleged wrongdoing.

$200 Billion well spent keeping Elon out of prision?

Twitter chief executive Elon Musk rallied a team of roughly 80 engineers to reconfigure the platform’s algorithm so his tweets would be more widely viewed, tech news site Platformer has reported.

A disgruntled Musk called for an emergency effort after a tweet he sent during Sunday’s Super Bowl game failed to achieve as much engagement as a tweet from Joe Biden, interviews and internal documents reviewed by Platformer have revealed.

The effort was sparked when a tweet from the president, who has 37m followers, generated nearly 29m impressions while a similar tweet from Musk – who has 128m followers – generated little more than 9.1m impressions.

This is a part of a wider problem. Those still on Twitter have noted for some time that their feeds are being cluttered with whatever brain fart Elon Musk just had to such an extent that users have actively blocked him. Elon Musk has had the algorithim rewritten so that his Tweets bypass any filters that anyone has.

So if you don't want to know about anything but Disney Cartoons and My Little Pony now your account will tell you about Disney Cartoons, My Little Pony and Elon Musk's latest brain fart.

Here’s how Elon Musk became the first person ever to lose $200 billion
Elon Musk became the world’s richest person when his wealth reached $340 billion on November 4, 2021. He lost the title early this month to French fashion and cosmetics magnate Bernard Arnault.

Avoidably losing $200Bn is not the act of a rational person.


I heard this on the news today.

Elon Musk reclaims title as richest person in the world, says Bloomberg

Elon Musk is once again the richest person in the world, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, with a personal net worth of US$187 billion.
Much of Musk’s wealth is tied up in Tesla stock — which took a massive hit in 2022 but has since mostly recovered. It only took the tech CEO two months to reclaim his title.
Bloomberg reports that by the market’s close on Monday, a rally in Tesla stock had bumped Musk ahead of CEO Bernard Arnault, head of the French luxury conglomerate Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), whose net worth is listed as US$185 billion.

It seems Elon has verified an account that post racism and pornography as a genuine Disney account, with a Gold Check Mark no less.

Disney have not commented but I'm willing to bet everything I own that the House of Mouse is not happy.

DeSantis is finding out the first rule of America: don't mess with the Mouse, Musk will obviously not learn from it.

Do you ever find "Joey" Biden comedy gold?
If you don't, you're in the minority :mrgreen:

But seriously, you all like to laugh at Trump, Musk, DeSantis etc... but never about Biden's ridiculous gaffes, which are actually the most laughable, although sad.
Why is that?

Let me ask you Stooo, what would you do without Twitter?
You're so angry that Musk bought it, yet you can't stay away.
Would you be happy if Musk crashes Twitter and it disappears?
