Do not lose heart over Elon musk tesla twitter the next Twitter



elon musk tesla twitter

Elon musk tesla twitter this weekend, that he was “giving serious consideration” to creating his own social media platform.

The billionaire serial entrepreneur and CEO of Tesla and Space X, tweeted that “Given Twitter serves as de facto the public square, failing to adhere free speech principles fundamentally undermines Democracy.” “What should we do?”

Elon musk tesla twitter: These tweets may have caused your blood pressure to spike

Let’s just take a deep breath. DogeSociaelX is unlikely to be available anytime soon.

Musk is known for tweeting bizarre memes, thoughts, and even information about Tesla. Then he pretends shock when U.S. regulators respond with more than a raised eyebrow. His track record when it comes to Musk actually implementing his bizarre Twitter ideas isn’t very good.

Musk isn’t the only one who fantasizes publicly about becoming Jack Dorsey

Musk was criticized by journalists for his 2018 decisions regarding Tesla’s management. He promised to launch a website called Pravda.

Pravda is the Russian word meaning “truth” and the name of a historical Russian communist newspaper. Musk wanted the website to allow people to rate journalists, editors, and media outlets based on their “core truth” or “credibility scores.”

However, it didn’t materialize. As journalists all know, Twitter is a great tool to alert you when people disagree with you.

Musk’s sudden deep and genuine concern about Twitter’s fairness “as the de facto town square” is just like his 2018 concerns about media accuracy/objectivity: a deeply hypocritical ploy to shore up his (and his followers) absurd persecution fantasy.

Elon musk tesla twitter: Twitter-borne plans have not always been able to take flight.

In 2018, a year that Musk was known for his outrageous antics, Musk also announced his “new intergalactic multimedia empire,” a comedy troupe called Thud. AfterElon musk tesla twitter  was selected to host SNL, I set out on a Sisyphean journalistic task. I reached out to all 13 employees of Thud, Musk’s forgotten foray in comedy media.

I was not allowed to speak to anyone. Thud was created by former editors from The Onion and became a joke on resumes (former Theranos employees could relate). These writers and designers were not interested in revisiting Thud, which the minimalist website calls “short-lived and aptly named”.

Musk initially funneled $2million into Thud. But he abruptly left the company, leaving its editors without a plan for monetizing the project.

Editor Cole Bolton stated that “Making the swift transition from a billionaire-backed company to an independent media company was… You know,” The Verge’s then editor Cole Bolton said.

Musk’s history of making outrageous statements online is no reason to panic

This social media empire is not even intergalactic. Even if a major name is behind a platform, it’s not guaranteed that it will succeed.

Donald Trump’s new app, Truth Social may seem like it’s on its way to becoming a major 4chan. However, weeks later, we are still 976,985th in the waitlist. Once you are admitted, it doesn’t seem like the party is too exciting (unless your passion is hot chicks golfing).

Musk wouldn’t be able to reach the same audience on his own social media platform even if he did. His 79.4m followers rank him among the top 10, surpassing only Justin Bieber and Barack Obama. Musk, unlike Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, uses his following to make Hitler jokes.

He also compares Twitter’s new CEO ParagAgrawal to Joseph Stalin. These offensive tweets, Musk complaining that he isn’t allowed to speak freely on Twitter, were not deleted by the platform. He deleted his Hitler meme and Agrawal’s dig is still up.

This is not a free speech issue. It’s Musk’s dislike for regulation. Musk’s 80 million followers are unlikely to migrate to his new platform. However, even if they do, the SEC could still hold Musk responsible for any insider information he may have shared.

Musk’s most powerful tool is Twitter. And, like Trump, Musk doesn’t seem to be able to gain anything from trying to start a company that the SEC wouldn’t monitor anyway.

However, this is not to suggest that we should ignore the danger posed by egomaniacal men who have enough wealth to make their fever dream a reality.

Musk is a better businessman than Trump. Musk’s Twitter outbursts can sometimes create heated, charged dialogue. We forget that, even though Musk tweets can move markets sometimes they just fall with an ebb.

CEO faces backlash for crying selfie after layoffs announcement on LinkedIn



CEO Crying Selfie Layoffs

CEO Crying Selfie Layoffs: A CEO of a US company is facing flak for the way he announced the firing of his employees on LinkedIn, with people deeming it reprehensible.

Braden Wallake, the CEO of HyperSocial, posted a photo of himself crying while trying to explain why few employees had to be laid off from his company.

“I’ve gone back and forth whether to post this or not. We just had to layoff a few of our employees. I’ve seen a lot of layoffs over the last few weeks on LinkedIn. Most of those are due to the economy, or whatever other reason. Ours? My fault,” Wallake wrote.

“I made a decision in February to stop selling our main services and focus on a new service. A higher priced service. It’s a great service, and something we will continue to offer, but it’s for the right kinds of companies,” he added.

“Now, I know my team will say that ‘we made that decision together’, but I lead us into it. And because of those failings, I had to do today, the toughest thing I’ve ever had to do.”

Wallake said despite the layoffs, the company has always been a people first business. “We’ve always been a people first business. And we always will be. Days like today, I wish I was a business owner that was only money driven and didn’t care about who he hurt along the way.”

“So, I just want people to see, that not every CEO out there is cold-hearted and doesn’t care when he/she have to lay people off. I’m sure there are hundreds and thousands of others like me. The ones you don’t see talked about. Because they didn’t lay off 50 or 500 or 5000 employees,” he said.

He further went on add that hoped his employees realised how much he loved them. “I know it isn’t professional to tell my employees that I love them. But from the bottom of my heart, I hope they know how much I do. Every single one. Every single story. Every single thing that makes them smile and every single thing that makes them cry. Their families. Their friends. Their hobbies,” he wrote.

CEO criticised for his crying selfie after firing employees

The post has gone viral and people have laid into Wallake for the crying selfie he posted.


“Don’t worry everyone. Not every CEO is cold hearted. Some are attention seeking narcissists. it’s fine. Stop worrying,” one user commented.

“Taking a selfie while crying. I applaud your ability to multitask under distress,” another user said.

“Three things that disturb me about this post – one, this strikes as “how hard this is for me, pity the poor CEO” when people have just lost their jobs. A bit insensitive. Two, the authors replies to peoples comments seem in a tone that suggests he’s not exactly heart broken. And three, if you’ve laid people off and you are taking to LinkedIn to post about it, maybe link them, sing their praises and skills and let other companies know they would be amazing people to hire. This post just comes off as attention seeking,” a third user added.
