If you gave me this screenshot with the last four words blanked out, I definitely wouldn’t be able to guess them
Only on Twitter can we watch a man worth $200 billion negotiate with a man worth $500 million about saving $12 a month.
"Having tens of thousands of followers on YouTube or Instagram makes you an income. Having tens of thousands of followers on Twitter makes you a target."
If one in five current blue ticks paid $20 a month that would raise just under $15 million a year for Twitter…Twitter’s current revenues (mostly from ads) are $5 billion a year. Musk’s apparent plan would generate about 30 hours’ worth of annual revenue. https://t.co/RmuMirG2PL

Seems like a bad take to me but if the new president of Brazil wants to try to mediate that wouldn't be the worst idea in the world.
Lula on Ukraine: “Putin shouldn’t have invaded Ukraine. But it’s not just Putin who is guilty. The US and EU are also guilty. What was the reason for the Ukraine invasion? NATO? Then the US and EU should have said: 'Ukraine won’t join NATO.' That would have solved the problem" https://t.co/X2jmkzVu8Z

-Twitter's revenue is currently overwhelmingly ad money. -But appeasing advertisers means being less edgy than Elon would like (for instance, the CEO tweeting fun conspiracy theories is a no-no) -So he desperately wants to pivot revenue away from ads -Hence $20 blue check stuff
Covid rates have been uniformly good in the U.S., but there IS geographic variation. For example, I'm OK eating indoors in SF now (7 cases/100K/d). But I'm heading to NYC this Friday, and I won't (29 cases/100K/d). Why? The same encounter there is 4x riskier Covid-wise than here.
Republicans want you to believe that contraception is safe. They are lying to you.
On hot mic audio he didn't realize was being recorded, Brian Kemp signaled his willingness to bring up a contraception ban in Georgia https://t.co/Ow6KNByQ3I

One of the lessons of Trump is that American society doesn’t know how to process people announcing their nefarious plans out in the open for everyone to hear. https://t.co/AptWpPjrS5
