Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, has so far failed miserably in his attempt to take over Twitter.
Employees who either survived a sizable round of layoffs or were asked to come back to work after being dismissed are scrambling to understand what’s going on while the entire organization is in disarray.
Musk is at the core of the chaos, allegedly coming up with fresh ideas on the spot, frequently without telling anyone of his intentions. Even though he had earlier declared that “comedy is now permitted” on the site, he recently instituted a new regulation barring users for “impersonating” others.
Yes, Musk must now establish the rules and choose how to carry them out. After all, he now serves as Twitter’s official judge, jury, and executioner.
But Chris Sacca, an early Twitter investor, argued in a critical Twitter thread that he is also “straight-up alone right now and winging things.”
Sacca said that the wealthy CEO’s standard operating procedure has been that he simply has no one to answer to.
In other words, Sacca contended, Musk surrounds himself with individuals who just concur with him, even when his ideas are flawed.
One of the major disadvantages of having money or power, he argued, is that you won’t have someone to challenge you, offer honest criticism, suggest solutions, or just tell you when you’re wrong. “Out-of-touch stuff results from a diminishing vision coupled with intellectual seclusion.”
Sacca continued, “I’ve known Elon for a very long time. Musk’s “success to date is not an accidҽnt,” the author continued, adding that “I’ve appreciated his thought and desire.”
However, recently, things have started to get worse.
The venture capitalist countered, “But I’ve recently observed individuals around him grow more sycophantic and opportunistic. Simply put, there are more positive financial and societal outcomes when you agree with him.
Musk, according to Sacca, is manifestly ignorant of Twitter’s difficulties, and the company’s “fundamental concerns just can’t be reduced to black and white.”
He asserted that “batteries and motors and rockets and tunnels and solar panels,” which have clearer solutions, have very little in common with them and that they are “gray AF.”
The issue is Musk, Sacca asserted “by himself. He is the life of the party and is well-liked by many people. But the harsh reality is that he is currently acting alone and on his own.”
And with anything as complicated as running Twitter, that might be an issue.
We all require support from those around us, Sacca tweeted. “to reject. calling bullshιt.”
The thread contrasts interestingly with a story shared this week by former Twitter programmer Steve Krenzel about how he was pressured to work on an immoral project for a client but spoke up to then-CEO Jack Dorsey, who ensured the project didn’t actually move forward.
Someone close to Elon will need to “speak some trᴜth to power and supplement his bold and ambitious impulses with sorely needed delicacy,” according to Sacca.
It’s simpler to say than to do. Dissent has long been suppressed by Musk.
It rҽmains to be seen if he will be able to turn things around and keep Twitter alive as advertisers leave in droves.
Musk, however, has picked the worst time to share crass and offҽnsivҽ memes making fun of competitors.
It’s a terrible state of affairs: Twitter’s walls are beginning to fall down, while the company’s leader keeps throwing grenades.
Elon Musk’s SpaceX Valued At $137B In Latest Funding Round
Bιllιonaire Elon Musk’s Internet satellite and rocket company SpaceX is raising $750 million in a new round of funding. The company is currently valued at $137 million.

The company is also developing Starship and Super Heavy launch vehicles at its Starbase facility in Boca Chica, Texas.

‘He’s not playing games!’ – Elon Musk exposes Adam Schiff’s collusion with Twitter
The following batch of Twitter Files were released by journalist Matt Taibbi on Tuesday.
The bombshell’s revelation that government organizations were collaborating closely with Twitter to censor and block their opposition was revealed further.
One discovery made by Taibbi revealed how Democratic Representative Adam Schiff attempted to get investigative journalist Paul Sperry’s Twitter account suspended using his power.
According to Taibbi, Twitter was accepting requests “from everywhere: from Treasury, the NSA, almost every state, the HHS, from the FBI and DHS, and more.”
They also got an amazing range of requests from officials asking them to prohibit people they didn’t like. Here, the office of Democrat and chair of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff requests that journalist Paul Sperry be blocked on Twitter, according to Taibbi.
He attached the following photo:
Musk then called out Schiff on Twitter: “Hey @RepAdamSchiff, what’s this?”
Sperry was later taken from the website, despite Schiff’s inability to get the investigative journalist quickly suspended.
Musk’s focus has been more focused on Schiff as he seeks to expose the dishonesty of Washington lawmakers.
Musk completely dismantled Schiff by making fun of his little brain in late December. In recent weeks, Schiff and other Democrat politicians have attacked Musk, but the billionaire has had none of it.
Elon Musk made the remark in response to a tweet from Schiff that said: “Elon Musk claims to be an absolute believer in free speech in order to rationalize ignoring bigotry and intolerance on Twitter. However, when they publish bad news, journalists face an arbitrary prohibition. It seems that the commitment to free expression is not that strong. But there is hypocrisy.
Regarding Schiff’s leadership of the House Intelligence Committee, Musk retorted, “Thankfully, you lose your chairmanship very shortly.” You have a little brain.
Musk also attacked Senator Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday after she attacked Tesla by writing to the Tesla board to inquire whether investors had been “harmed” by Musk’s purchase of Twitter.
According to the New York Times, Elizabeth Warren has written to Tesla’s board to inquire whether investors have been damaged by the billionaire tech mogul’s term as social network CEO.
Elizabeth Warren is the last person I would ever want near Tesla, Farzad Mesbahi responded to the tweet from Unusual Whales.
Musk then took aim at Warren in his direct response to Mesbahi’s tweet.
He wrote, “The United States has clearly suffered by having her as a senator lol.”
@CollinRugg is my Twitter handle.
With regard to corporate and labor regulations, Warren has threatened Musk with “serious legal problems” and has accused Musk of misusing his position of authority ever since he took control of Twitter.
Given that Warren belongs to America’s political elite class, the issue of power abuse is rather hilarious.
She said in the Sunday letter, “As you know, it is the legal duty of Tesla’s board to ensure that its C.E.O. is meeting all his legal obligations and performing as an effective leader.
Warren previously admitted to being quite upset about Musk’s purchase of Twitter to CBS late-night presenter Stephen Colbert in November.
Warren said that no billionaire should have so much authority over how Americans and others across the world are given the opportunity to interact. “I have a serious issue with him,”
“This agreement poses a threat to our democracy. Billionaires like Elon Musk operate under a different set of regulations from the rest of society and amass power for their personal benefit. Ironically, she wrote in a tweet, “We need a wealth tax and tough regulations to hold Big Tech accountable.
