When the news broke that Elon Musk had purchased Twitter my first thought was, “what the fuck!” It really didn’t make any sense, and for me, still doesn’t. But then I started to think about his history and his, up to now, absolute entrepreneurial genius. Besides seeing more and more Teslas on the road, his leadership in battery technology, it may take longer than Elon wants, but his new battery packs will be safer, go farther, be cheaper, and be more environmentally friendly than anyone else’s, for at least the foreseeable future. Makes me wonder.

Now, should we talk about SpaceX, or shall we talk about connecting the world with Starlink. What I’m trying to say is, if you are a gambler and love him or hate him, it would be tough for me to bet against him.

Back to (who gives a shit) Twitter. Half the employees, gone, eight bucks a month to continue being an asshole, a whole bunch of people, who I could care less about, can spew anything they want, including Elon! Twitter has always been nothing more than a gossip sewer, conspiracy littered, pile of bullshit mongers, trying to lie their way to some kind of, what they believe will sell something, or scare us into believing we need to take over the government with our BB guns, oh ya, then there’s also the negative side.

Does anyone really believe that Elon Musk really cares about Twitter! I believe, after all the legal haggling, all he wants is for Twitter to just go away. To me, that’s the only thing that makes sense. But if he has a plan, he has already proven to me he’s smarter than I am.

If you’re a chess player then you can understand that there’s always someone smarter than you. There are people who are at least three moves ahead of you, sometimes even more. You can hate, envy, fear, or question Elon’s motives, but my advice would be sit back, relax, and don’t bet against a lion who emerged from the wilderness of South Africa!
