Muskus Interruptus

The main business story today concerns Elon Musk's decision to put his pending Twitter purchase on hold.  He's claiming that he's doing so until he can be assured that fewer than 5% of Twitter users are bots, but I suspect that he was only trolling, and never really wanted to buy the social media company.  Here's a pundit opining that he's also trying to weasel out of the one billion dollar penalty he faces for backing out of the deal.

Musk has long shown that he has the emotional maturity of an eight-year old, and not a particularly well-adjusted one.  He received publicity for his announcement, and he believes he 'triggered' a lot of people.  He's not a genius by any stretch of the imagination, just a weird edgelord kid that never grew up.

I just noticed that the nice gay couple in our neighbourhood sold their Tesla, and I'm willing to bet it's because of Musk and his antics. Good luck selling your cars to the Magats, Elon. Detroit is rapidly converting to EV's and Telsa is about to have serious competition, aside from Consumer Reports putting them in the top 10 unreliable category.
