The Twitter Train Chugs Along

Elizabeth Lopatto, writing at the Verge in April:

Now, if Musk buys Twitter, I feel like we all have a vague idea of how this goes. First, a lot of Twitter employees quit because Musk’s companies are notoriously miserable places to work. Second, Musk tweets about a bunch of shit and then does some of it — which may or may not include reinstating Donald Trump on Twitter, getting rid of all the spam bots, and adding a fart button. Third: uh, maybe profit?

As of tonight, this train is right on schedule with slim chances of reaching its most optimistic destination.
