Why are people against Musk buying twitter? Serious question - isn’t he unaffiliated to any political party and genuinely looking out for the greater good of society in all his initiatives/ companies?

His push for “freedom of speech” will open back up the floodgates of harassment on twitter that the platfrom already struggles to adequately control. Only the worst actors have been banned and they’ll soon be back.

If freedom of speech was really this big of a concern, why did the alternatives fail? Because ultimately, the trolls and bigots don’t want their own space. They want to take everybody else’s space and make it theirs.


Causing public panic is why yelling Fire or Bomb is not covered. People can start stampeding and somebody gets hurt or dies from being trampled

A general belief that tech enabled “freedom of amplified speech” favors the lowest common denominator in society - and heralds the return to the yellow press vs. some constitutional originalist panacea.

He wants to make the algorithm open source which is a really good thing for society




Thanks for the share, really interesting take.

My guess is that a lot of people find comfort and security in believing the mainstream media agendas. Twitter offers a safe haven for them through censorship and Elon risks taking that away from them.


Do you really think he’s just out there “looking out for the greater good”?



Gates isn’t even in the top 20 of private landowners in the US (in fact he owns less than half the acreage of #20) but people don’t care about that because there aren’t fun conspiracy theories about those landowners


All this and Elon still won’t pick OP


It’s a question. Settle down pal


I am against it because I don’t think any one person should own the “town square”


And I agree with you

Rich man bad, that's why


Yes. Eat the rich


It also builds his political clout. Twitter is a political platform, perfect to achieve his bold ideas in accelerated time frames


Bold ideas = less taxes on the wealthy. Not much more to it

Oh my god. I took some time off hoping it would recharge me.

I’m already feeling unmotivated and drained. I hate the BS that I’ve had to go through. I honestly do not get it when people say they join ZS “for the people”, or for “easier hours”.

Then when I bring up my experiences on FB I get absolutely gaslit “the hours aren’t as bad as other firms”...”The people are great”.

Logging off after 10 PM: what a great way to get back to work.

Anyone have early experience in both consulting and PM and willing to chat? I’ve been in consulting <1 year and tbh the work itself is pretty BS, basically just professionalized a lot of what I learned on my own in college and getting faster at ppt/excel.

I have some prior PM experience and am considering just jumping from consulting into PM at the entry level, but I'm wording if the work itself is that much more interesting. Have heard early PMs do pretty small/random things for a while...
