Billionaire and Tesla owner Elon Musk made headlines Friday morning after he suddenly indicated he might not go through with the buyout of Twitter after all.
“Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users,” Musk tweeted.
About two hours later, Musk added, “Still committed to acquisition.”
DML News App and TeamDML.com founder Dennis Michael Lynch responded in a Facebook post. He wrote:
Elon Musk now claims the Twitter deal is on hold due to a debate over how many accounts on the network are fake. His tweet Friday followed an earlier tweet in which he publicly referred to Trump as a combative candidate. Musk started this escapade knowing Twitter is a cesspool filled with hate, spam and fake accounts. The company is filled with far left radicals who are trying to silence the Right. He knew he was buying a lemon. Now he’s backpedaling over a small batch of bots?
My take: Either he takes the network over as-is and fixes all of it, or he drops out immediately and goes back to his other ventures. The on / off routine is lame.
His recent knock on Trump is dumb. The support he has right now is from the Right, and from reasonable people who believe in free speech. So if his punch at Trump is an attempt to make all sides happy (free speech loved by the Right, anti Trump comments loved by the Left), he’s got a lot to learn about politics.
When you try to appease everyone all that happens is you end up pissing off both sides. Be smart Elon, less talk and more walk. Buy the damn thing, fix it, and then let it find its own way. And remember that Trump would be less divisive if he wasn’t falsely attacked, sued, and accused.
On Thursday, Musk had tweeted, “Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter.”
