Oh The Tears, Those Delicious Tears

With the news breaking yesterday that Twitter was being sold to Elon Musk, who promises to make the platform a free speech outlet again, the meltdown on social media was epic. Overnight Elon Musk replaced Vladimir Putin as the villain of the day.

It is glorious. There hasn’t been this much overwrought reeeeing on social media since the 2016 election and he hasn’t even done anything yet.

Let’s be clear. Elon Musk is not one of us, he is not /ourguy/. Mostly he seems like he is a bit crazy. What he is should be enough though, he is an agent of chaos in many ways like Trump: a goofy billionaire who has enough resources to do crazy crap like becoming President or buying a social media company for $44 billion. 
I don’t know if he will make the moderators allow free speech or not. I doubt you will be able to tweet “nigger” on Twitter even with Musk in charge. Maybe old suspended accounts will be reinstated, that would nice so I could have my original account with my real name back although I don’t know what I would do with the other half dozen old suspended accounts. At a minimum I expect to see the Babylon Bee reinstated and hopefully Project Veritas and others on the dissident right who have been suspended like Jared Taylor. 
It is a little win for /ourside/ not because Elon is /ourguy/ but because this makes the Left so angry and exposes once again how hypocritical they are. I will bask in the tears, sweet and salty tears, for a day or so but the real fight won’t be won on social media.

    Have never been on Twatter, myself. Considered it once, but figured I'm a bit too outspoken and would be banned eventually. It is nice to see that the communists feel threatened by an Africa American billionaire.

    I'm in favor of anything that diminishes the power of the left in censoring information not helpful to its cause. I never have had any social media account and I believe the internet was better when it was wide open. The move of substantial amounts of users to My space then Facebook then Twitter has diminished free speech and access not enhanced it.
    For today I will revel in the pain and fear of leftists that they no longer hold all of the keys.

    Those of us there at the time, when for many Usenet was the internet, used to laugh at the walled and gated communities like Compuserve and AOL as being havens for the weak and weakminded terrified of any sort of argument or confrontation. Ah, for the days when the alt.flamers used to rampage through the cat lover groups like Genghis Khan and his Digital Horde.

    And hear the lamentations of the whiny bitches.
