5. It is your choice. I don't like the way the guy treats his employees for starters.

I stopped watching Fox back during the 2008 Primary. When I had cable I even blocked it on my cable box. I tend to boycott businesses when their business practices offend me. Musk himself is offensive.
He has plans of turning twitter into a one stop online shop where we will all be buying and selling everything from content to product and will have a money sharing service like Venmo etc.
Will I trust a vindictive thin skinned narcissistic character with my personal and financial information ? No.
There are alternatives to twitter.

I'm in a holding pattern. I'll migrate if there is a viable alternative. Tomconroy Nov 2022 #1
