I follow a newsletter written by a guy who HATES Elon, and the way he excoriates him makes my life.
Here are some of my favourites:
"Musk has accidentally created a public hearing on his reputational and professional worth, where we now will see if he is a great CEO or a rich guy who kept winning until he didn’t. The public will now watch and judge him in real time as he makes the decisions that most CEOs get to make behind closed doors, in part because he can’t help but announce them personally. He cannot post less, because it will show a lack of attachment to the massive purchase he made, and if he posts more, he will be subject to the hyper-attention that made him famous."
"Musk bought a company with a product that’s somewhat difficult to describe for reasons he has had a great deal of trouble elucidating. He didn’t want Twitter, he wanted to prove he could buy it, and he wanted everybody to think it was cool, which they did not. He has spent $44 billion in an attempt to make people love him only to be left with a very expensive way to make people angry at him every single day for the rest of his life."
"Musk is trapped by his foolish decision-making. He has to make $1 billion a year to cover the interest on the debt that he incurred buying the website he didn’t want to buy. He should pause this entire verification discussion and crawl on his belly toward the advertisers and say “sir, what would you like me to do?” That is the only way he can avoid the tailspin that may or may not destroy Twitter as we know it."
