^^^ I think Courtney Love being "Perma Banned" is probably a good thing.

I hope this happened. An October surprise!

“Elon Musk is considering firing large numbers of Twitter employees on Saturday, according to a report - in order to stop them from receiving their November 1 stock grants. …”

And change our profile pictures to have an overlay of the Twitter logo for one week to bring awareness and show our solidarity.

Appears the top execs were fired "for cause", thus cancelling their golden parachutes packages as far as severance payments and unvested stock options.

My guess is that Musk can prove they lied about certain operation aspects relating to Twitter, including bots.

Not really. Musk is not a natural born U.S. citizen, so meets not the qualifications for the Presidency.

Good. Why should they profit from outright leftist censorship attacks during their time at twatter? If it comes to pass, I look forward to the inevitable meltdowns.

Parag Agrawal. Talk about a life of privilege. Parents were well off, very important if you're in India, and he married well. Yet he spews this anti-America shit.

Why do people who hate this country so much stay here when they had a previous home?
