Musk's lawyers have responded to Twitter's initial court filing. Here is one analysis, and this report is indicating the response is less than compelling:


As was noted in the Twitter complaint, Musk had texted board chair Bret Taylor and argued one of the key reasons he wanted to take Twitter private was that purging all the spam would make Twitter’s numbers look terrible, and thus was better done as a private company:

On April 9, 2022, the day Musk said he wanted to buy Twitter rather than join its board, he texted Taylor that “purging fake users” from the platform had to be done in the context of a private company because he believed it would “make the numbers look terrible.”
That shows that as he went into the process of buying Twitter, he already fundamentally believed that spam was a massive problem on the site, and that removing the spam accounts would make Twitter’s numbers look awful. That pretty clearly implies that he never believed Twitter’s publicly professed numbers regarding spam mDAU’s.

Lol "Do you know what probably would have actually maximized shareholder value and also been very satisfying? Telling Elon Musk to fuck off."
Yes.... But this is why Elon was offering to overpay for twitter so much. It put the board in a position where the burden of proof was on them to explain how they'd turn down that much money for the share holders. ...with the gift of hindsight, this offer was maybe always a lie so now the best thing for them to do is to go after that billion dollar breakup fee that they are entitled to.

It's like watching the Patriots play the Astros. I can't decide which one I want to lose more.

(Apologies to Houstonians and New Englanders -- I know those teams aren't your fault.)

:devilish:

Though realistically speaking the patriots would likely win since baseball doesn't have the armour. :D
Well, if it isn't armor, what the heck are baseball players always adjusting down there?

Groin Protectors.

You can see a video of what happens when someone is hit by a bullet while wearing a Nutshellz groin protector: Best Cup And Athletic Supporter.

You can buy Black cock and balls or White cock and balls on that website. Or, if you want, Green or Yellow. Here's a link to their black cock and balls: Nutshellz® Black Cock & Balls Black Surround/Adult/Level 1

They're posts on his own alternative service, Truth Social, a locked-off fork of the Mastodon social network which looks very similar to Twitter in many ways.

The funny part is, zero Mastodon instances I have ever visited "look like Twitter".

I mean, it's the same idea of "microblogging", but they all have this very distinct mastodon-y look.

They went out of their way to make it look like Twitter.
