"The Supreme Leader of Iran, who uses his Twitter account to call for the destruction of Israel, is still on Twitter.

But @realDonaldTrump is not."

Trump brought everything on himself.

He is 100% responsible for his own actions.



Are you now in agreement with what woke means and that Twitter cannot longer be a woke platform.


NO

You speak for you.

I'll speak for me.

It's so many inconsistencies in all this... Kyrie Irving has been suspended for 7 NBA games for a book he linked to that is sold on Amazon!

But there’s no such thing as unlimited freedom of speech, and it's not easy to determine who should be banned and who shouldn’t. But a criterion of inciting violence and viciously insulting groups and people is reasonable.

Musk is learning that it's easy to sit on the sideline criticizing others, but now that he has the responsibility, he’s finding it difficult.

He will lose sponsors to beat the ban if he goes full radical right. He has to find a middle course.

You need then to understand what woke means and that Twitter will no longer be a woke platform.

Also the company was losing Billions.. Billions....

Maybe they should up that 30 hours a week up just a tad? Put in a little mo effort?

Mo effort, Mo money

Yeah , the "woke" sponsors deserted .
Did that come as a surprise to YOU ?

Yeah it's all over the news. The guy is a toxic CEO. The employees have a choice to not work for Elon if they don't like his style of leadership or changes he's made. Looks like many have made that choice.

What else do you expect from a "woke" crowd ?

Seems to be a real left/right split on this issue. Left is incensed that Musk dares act like the owner.

Cheers

There's your first mistake Terry, You believe the news. Facepalm.

As a Twitter user, I keep looking to see if it's still working, as I keep hearing that all these people leaving the company will result in the platform's demise. Sadly for them, it is still working.

I assume Musk spent the last few months working to mitigate against the risk that his purchase of the platform would not go down too well. It's called risk management for the business-illiterate, and journalists.

Interviewer: “I see on your resume, you used to work for Twitter. Why did you leave”?

Applicant: “I didn’t want to work hard”.

LOL….

Good luck in life Twitter quitters.

Well I'm sure Musk has plenty of loyal employees. If you can put a rocket into orbit you can run a social media cliche.

Sometimes that could be harder given the human nature and the dynamics between the various employees and employers. The old Twitter was a champion of the woke ideology and a champion of censorship of free speech.

I don't expect much from a CEO that lies about his degrees and was in this country as an illegal alien either.

Are you sure about this?

There is something to this story but it seems to have originated from a tweet

www.google.com... qualification-article-95619420/amp

The tweet


Someone has to say it: Elon Musk has lied for 27 years about his credentials. He does not have a BS in Physics, or any technical field. Did not get into a PhD program. Dropped out in 1995 & was illegal. Later, investors quietly arranged a diploma - but not in science


The link doesn't seem to work for some reason but you can type timesnownews.com and search for the story.

Good for the employees.....

I know many of you hated twitter and I really didn't like them either but this whole censorship came from the very top, the average worker bee had very little to do with it. The ones who were in control have already left with their multi million dollar severance packages.

As the WFH and long hours, I'm happy they are quitting. Musk may have convinced people to go along with bad treatment because lets face it, working on going to Mars is almost the ultimate geek job. Mechanical engineering isn't as competitive as software.

Why would anyone stay when they could have a new job in a day along with three months pay?

Ummm... that's not reality.

The reality is that Musk pays well, be it Tesla or SpaceX. He does, in return, ask for a lot from his workers. He also knows how to find and keep imaginative and innovative employees: he assigns a task (typically one that sounds like science fiction), then provides whatever his people need to make it a reality. That's an engineer's dream.

He is also a media hound, harsh when he doesn't get what he wants, and quite often ignorant of reality. But he's not an engineer; Elon Musk is a businessman. He doesn't create anything except companies. His people do all the creating. That's why he so often shoves his foot in his mouth up to his elbow when discussing technicalities of the sciences involved.

Engineers are not just "geeks." They are normal people who are good at math and science, and who have this driving desire to make something new and unique. Sit in on an engineering class sometime, any engineering class, and you'll see all kinds of people, from blue-bloods to rednecks and everything in between.

Rocketry is not mechanical engineering. It is primarily aerospace engineering with some electrical engineering and material science thrown in. Also, Twitter employees are not all software engineers, or even software people. The majority are computer operators in one area or another. Think modern version of a secretary. There are some software engineers, certainly, but only a small minority. Twitter does not make anything except the Twitter website.

Software engineering is one of the most competitive areas of engineering that exists right now; you have that correct. What you do not have correct is that because software engineering and software technicians are in that extremely competitive industry, jobs are harder to come by, not easier. I have close relations who are in that field, and a good job is quite difficult and can take months to land. When one gets it, one is pretty much set financially; the pay is quite high. But it's not that easy to get a job as you seem to think. There are a lot of people competing for every job.

Mechanical and aerospace engineering is also competitive, but not to the extent software is. Electrical is fairly competitive, so a good electrical engineering position can take a few months even for an experienced engineer. A software engineer can easily spend a year trying to land a good job, especially without a lot of experience. There are just so many software engineers out there for every software engineering job.

I doubt any of the Twitter employees are grabbing another job the next day, unless they change careers to flipping hamburgers at McDonalds. That job is considered day labor here... show up, go to work, get paid, come home, and show up tomorrow if you want, assuming you're not fired. The pay just isn't all that great.

If you ever saw "Twitter", you'd be amazed at how simple the hardware/software is. The technical hardware/software might not be worth $1 million, lol.

Thirty years ago, "Twitter" would have filled a large room. Today...maybe a walk-in closet.

They also hate hiring people who have been with the same company over 10 years.
All employers want that mid to late 20s worker with 3-5 years experience - everyone else they take if they have to.
