If it stayed the same, then why did he buy it?

It’s not like the news paper business is exactly the most profitable ndustry since basically the dot com boom.

Sure, they have a website where they now charge subscription fees, but it’s no Amazon.

It looks like there's early indications that tens of thousands of accounts are unfollowing MOR celebrities and even more tens of thousands of accounts newly following far-right celebrities in the last day. It looks like an exodus from twitter while the Nazis march in.

Okay. Just to mention that you have options: lots are going to http://Counter.Social to avoid Musk / Twitter Parlor.

SCOOP:
Some Twitter users noticed massive follower drop-offs yesterday.
Twitter just confirmed to @NBCNews that this activity was organic, not automated.
In short: The same day Elon Musk bought Twitter, a lot of people deactivated their accounts.

After all is said and done, Twitter will be the same as it always has been. A place for people to come and complain about other people, the only difference is that both sides will be heard complaining.

WARNING: The use of the term 'Nazis' to characterize people with different opinions than you is "controversial speech." And indeed this entire thread is in jeopardy of being shut down due to political speech. This is my last warning. Stay far away from expressing any political viewpoints. (And I won't be surprised if another moderator thinks that a warning is not sufficient in this instance and takes immediate further action.)
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

It's really annoying when you can't quote news articles about their subject matter because they bot-stopped the same word in the comment sections.
