All aTwitter

My final tweet, from New Year’s Eve 2017. Didn’t cost me shit.

OK, pop quiz. if you had $44 billion lying around doing not very much you would:

  1. Feed the hungry.
  2. House the homeless.
  3. Buy Twitter.

I guess I get it, kinda, sorta. I mean, I like toys. I just bought a canister stove for my occasional camping adventures; MSR said they didn’t have the bits to modernize my Bronze Age RapidFire, then offered me 30 percent off on a new burner. So, ’ray for MSR and for me.

But Twitter? Maybe Elon has the bits to fix that hot mess, and maybe he doesn’t. He can certainly throw bales of cash at it until he tears a rotator cuff or finds some other shiny object to money-whip until boredom sets in once again.

Me, I don’t even want to use Twitter for free.

    I guess its something to go along with his Penis Rocket. After all, the rich don’t have to do thoughtful things with their money. Its just another toy in the toybox.

    Well, one thing is for certain. Given how shitty Twitter is, I doubt he would have the energy to make it worse. I got a “gratuitous violence” warning last week when I said the proper place for dictators like Putin was hanging upside down from a lightpost like his brother in crime Benito.

    Must be nice to have a $44 billion dollar hobby. I wonder how N + 1 works in that world

  3. Jeff Cozad Says:

    Oh yeah… I also wonder how this “new & improved & free speech” twitter is going to work in Europe with their Digital Services Act which will force platforms like Facebook, Google and Twitter to better police content or face steep fines.

    Mr. Musk is a $%!#head. A very, very uber rich and smart $%!#head, but still a $%!#head. I’ll hold on to my opinion until someone proves me wrong. And no – I won’t be buying a Tesla ever or taking a ride on his dick rocket.

    Twits on twitter twittering away their time tweeting. Worthless.

    Mmmmm….do you make your own green sauce? I’ve got some of mine in the freezer and your photo reminded me to get it out and start cookin!

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I do indeed, Herb old scout. My recipe is a lot like this one, from the Santa Fe School of Cooking. I use 2/3 cup each of hot and mild green chile.

      Now that I think of it, I haven’t made any of this lately. I need to get on the ball, is what.
