    I have to say I'm looking forward to watching Musk's whole house of cards collapse.

    I did not understand why Elon offered to buy Twitter but understand now what he wants to accomplish. As for those ‘bailing out,’ good riddance.

    From my work experience, no coder owns sh*t and Elon owns the domain name. Sometimes ‘wipe and load’ is the best approach … even if there is a long outage.

    I would join his Twitter team in a heartbeat. I would take my pay in Twitter stock but then I am independently well off.

    I don't understand why he bought Twitter either. There's no moat around what the company produces. On top of that, his big mouth is not helping.

    As far as going hardcore, I don't see why anyone would want to if they are not reaping the rewards that go with it. The reward is mainly going to Elon. As such, I don't see the point.

    I think he plans to replace Facebook, YouTube, and go into electronic banking/or online sales. The first two I agree with.

    I don't see the point of doing any of this. None of these projects have a defensible moat. What's to prevent these ex-Twitter employees from starting a Twitter clone?

    Well the golden boy has a tiger by the tail. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. At least this won't bankrupt him.

    It may. With all of Elon's antics, Tesla's stock is tanking and has reportedly cut his wealth by half. I can't say I'm upset. The guy's an arrogant jerk.

    The same thing that got them laid off: sloth.

    Musk emailed his employees a few years back, encouraging them to avoid a traditional “chain-of-command” communication model, as Inc.com reports. Instead, Musk wants his employees to be efficient with their communications, telling them that all correspondence should take the “shortest path necessary,” regardless of what level of the business the two or more parties are involved with.

    “Communication should travel via the shortest path necessary to get the job done, not through the chain of command,” Musk said in the 2018 email to employees. “Any manager who attempts to enforce chain of command communication will soon find themselves working elsewhere.”
    Personally, I agree with this because it deflates 'wanna be' who will sacrifice the organization for their kingdom of control. Their myopic view leads to a local victory even as it kills the company. I've seen it too often to not recognize the stench.

    Nice try, but I don't totally buy that over three thousand folks plus hundreds that just quit are lazy.

    Elon asked for examples of their code and excellence. Then a lot decided the severance package was a better deal.

    Working with Elon is not a 40 hour per week job. Since I usually worked 48 hour weeks, anything less was sloth.

    Thinking that Twitter is about the code is like thinking that the New York Times is about the newsprint. Elon's going to destroy the place, and most people I know on Twitter already have one foot out the door. And I am happier every day that I didn't buy a Tesla and help to subsidize this sociopath.

    I'm happy for you too. Tesla has such a backlog, we don't need another complainer.

    Elon has now essentially told rational, non-abusive Twitter users to go eff themselves.

    When the Cult of Elon finally crashes and burns -- which might still take a while -- look for me. I'll be the one pouring champagne.

    My opinion of Twitter remains consistent ... where is the value added engineering?
