I knew I didn't like the acquision of Twitter by Elon Musk, taking it private. This so-called "champion of free speech" thinks the decision to ban Trump was bad:

Twitter's decision to ban the former US president was "morally wrong and flat-out stupid", Mr Musk told the Financial Times Future of the Car summit.

No it wasn't, it was a blessed relief.

While I have a Twitter account, I only use it for following people at certain times, which I did with Trump and Biden during the American election period. It was quite entertaining seeing him come out with those bizarre tweats, only for some of them to be reported as news items shortly afterwards. They were pretty tiresome too and unfortunately, they do a lot of damage, because so many people buy into his lies. This is why it was right and proper that he was eventually banned, and also from Facebook.

Trump is such a wheeler dealer and his own crappy social media startup, Truth Social, has done so badly, that I wouldn't be surprised if he had a hand in convincing Musk to buy Twitter. Note that this is only my supposition and not based on any hard evidence.

The only good thing is that Musk's takeover isn't yet complete, so we can only hope that something happens to stop it, but I'm not holding my breath.

I've had a 6th sense about Musk taking over Twitter and I don't think it's exactly all that it seems. If you look back at Musk's business relationships you may figure it out. I don't want to sound all "conspiracy theory" and all, but I'm just not "all in" on his intentions.

Trump, just needs to go play golf somewhere. He was very polarizing and American's never got a break in the news. Everyday, it was harsh news, nasty and mean news and people always back-stabbing each other, rather then coming together, then there were all of the protests and burning buildings down....sigh...

I believe Trumps Truth Social is already in failure territory. I won't join it, not interested. I don't want to be part of a website that everyone just ....hmmm...can't write that word probably, but you know what I mean.....lots of complainers, inflammatory conversations, that only insight people's rage even more. I much prefer, mellow, calm and fun stuff. I can take news sure, there are some important news items to discuss, but a website that is built on people ...umm....fussing all day....naw...they can have it. Where's a kitty or puppy picture?
