The Musk Files - He’s a Lazy Cripple

NBC News

Elon Musk took aim at a disabled Twitter employee Monday who tagged him in a tweet to ask if he’d been laid off.


A Twitter employee has appealed to Elon Musk on the platform to ask whether he had been sacked.

Sure, let’s pick on the guy in a wheel chair, Space Karen.

Stay classy, ass hole.


Twitter’s website is breaking in novel new ways — and while the company managed to recover from its latest outage within a couple hours, the story behind how it broke suggests there are likely to be similar problems in the near future.

I feel like Twitter will survive, but not because of Musk “magic.” It will continue because it will slowly lose users and the folks who remain will be able to apply more duct tape, bailing wire, and bubble gum to it to keep it going.

Rewrites are not really an option. You can swap out pieces — slowly — but that takes time. Declaring it needs a rewrite is a very lofty ideal. Best of luck with that.

Why not just pack it in and use Mastodon? 🐘

A Twitter engineer identified only as Sam told BBC News: “Wherever he goes in the office, there are at least two bodyguards—very bulky, tall, Hollywood movie bodyguards. Even when [he goes] to the restroom.” He said the constant use of bodyguards suggested that Musk, who has sacked a huge number of Twitter staff including coders, does not trust his remaining staff at Twitter HQ in San Francisco.

He should be paranoid of some angry geek handing him his ass one day.


Twitter insiders have told the BBC that the company is no longer able to protect users from trolling, state-co-ordinated disinformation and child sexual exploitation, following lay-offs and changes under owner Elon Musk.

Fascists gonna fascist.
