At this point, it seems as if we either wake up to one of Musk’s tweets or go to sleep with one.
By now, we would all have been flooded with news on everything that’s occurring on Twitter by now, and at this point, it feels as though we wake up to Musk’s tweets or go to sleep with one. A strange sense of déjà vu from the period in 2016 when Trump was in office and his tweets used to irritate us to a little degree. Comparable to a persistent case of heartburn that persisted for four years.
Musk created an excellent piece of work.
Tesla. I got into my Tesla and drove it to work. This is probably the only factor I’d consider when attributing his intellect to him. It is a pretty well-made automobile that has somewhere around 10 cameras installed in it. So, driving gives you new experiences and opportunities, like watching Netflix while you make a U-turn. It got rid of every unnecessary component of antiquated automotive manufacturing technology. It turns out that the automobile was created the way a computer engineer in the 2000s would have planned it, but with a premium of sixty thousand dollars tacked on. Musk was the first one there.
Now, why have I been so effusive in my admiration of Musk? In point of fact, I am not. If you look at it carefully, you’ll see what I mean.
That’s all there is to it: the individual created an automobile in the same way that a computer expert would have developed it, obtained government subsidies to construct his factories, and managed to make it all work. Huge applause. But that is where the responsibility ends.
There is not a single nice deed that I have seen him do in the genuine selflessness with which one expects wealthy people to act. The provision of star link by Elon Musk to Ukraine is analogous to the provision of vaccinations by Bill Gates to the nations of Africa. To have a grasp on the wider picture, you need to pay attention to the smallest details.
This essay will discuss the more comprehensive agenda.
Over the past year, I’ve been very interested in Elon Musk’s tweets, so I’ve tried to spend an unreasonable amount of time in my head trying to figure out what they mean. It will be quite clear to you if you look at the discussion on my Twitter account. This article discusses how significant a force Elon Musk is, and how that force is harmful to humanity as a whole.
According to my perspective, everything began with his tweets on $DOGE. If you are unaware, Dogecoin, often known as $DOGE, is a cryptocurrency that was created as part of a Ponzi scam to defraud regular investors. He made a lot of tweets about it, and he had a really aggressive attitude about it. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry who followed Musk and believed this bright maverick had the next get-rich-quick idea bought in DOGE, only to have it fall dramatically, causing the markets to move. To tell you the truth, I put a thousand dollars into it. If I spent that right now at Starbucks, I could have five of their pumpkin spice lattes. Who is to say that this is not an attempt to manipulate the market while doing so right under the nose of the SEC?
His early tweets on making Twitter private sparked a lot of conversation on developing a distributed open-source system. There were discussions on how Twitter is vital to democracy and how free speech may be in jeopardy as a result. And Bleh. He made a lot of hints, and many of them suggested that Twitter had taken a very far-left stance by banning right-wing people. He almost seemed to support the cause of those people.
On October 28, everything changed, and he was able to successfully consummate the sale and shift his attention to monetization.
“I had no intention of making a profit from it. I did it because I love mankind and wanted to do everything I could to assist them,” said Elon Musk.
During all of these years, there hasn’t been a single tweet that discusses how beneficial advertising may be or how social media could finance itself. Even Facebook got the boot when he joined the #DeleteFacebook movement at every available moment. He did this because he seemed to be outraged by Facebook’s abuses of user privacy, but then he went on to purchase Twitter and say anything he wanted there.
“Users may be informed while also being entertained by advertising when it is done well.” — Elon Musk
Elon Musk is the progenitor of hypocrisy if such a thing can have a name. I don’t even want to begin to discuss his newfound fascination with short-form films and monetizing “blue ticks” like that, which are both typical indicators of growth. That makes me wonder if he bought Twitter in order to add more variety to the firms he owns in his portfolio. The value of the market for autonomous driving is the same as one-fifth of the value of the advertising market. (If you include in short-form videos, people in their early twenties, and a few freebies, we are looking at a larger piece of the pie than Tesla, and you also get user data as a bonus.)
Twitter workers received an email that simply stated, “If you can get into your work email, you are employed.” This came as a response to the massacre that occurred, in which Twitter employees were let go. If you are unable to, you will be terminated.”
Someone has been quoted as saying, “I did not do anything in order to gain money.” I did it to attempt to serve mankind, whom I love.” His humanitarian quotient took a significant hit as a result of this action. He moved from saying “I adore mankind” to firing people in a manner that was both abrupt and disrespectful, which may have contributed to many people’s mental health problems. Unceremoniously losing a job would probably be on a list of the top ten things that could break a person, along with love and death, among other things. How do you plan to help people if you can’t even do the most basic thing that is expected of you?
The autocratic rulers of the past are made to appear like gentlemen in comparison to Elon Musk. It’s possible that he is, in fact, taking some history courses, and I’ll wager that some historical person or philosopher is the source of inspiration for his way of thinking.
This person is really knowledgeable in his field. Imagine what the world would become if the wealthiest guy in the world is unable to exercise empathy, compassion, and selflessness in his business dealings. He is the richest man in the world.
Throughout the course of history, a great many things have held power on this planet. Wars were won with money, raw power, political acumen, beauty, or religion; yet, the influence of a single individual alone won wars very rarely. One may make the case that the foundations of religion were laid by a collection of such solitary individuals. However, those guys did not have the necessary funds. The origin of religions and cults does not lie in financial gain. Now picture a guy who not only has the ability to sway the opinions of billions of people but also has an incredible amount of wealth. To what degree would he be able to affect the people of the world? He says he is a humanitarian, and I, for one, hope beyond all hope that he is. But if he isn’t, what kind of ripples will be caused as a result of his absence?
It’s possible that I come out as a skeptic who is also an ardent critic of Elon Musk. which is exactly what I am. But the fact of the matter is that all of his antics are having an effect on my life. The low morale he brought to the IT business is successfully changing the culture of an industry I like and value a lot. Wall Street is not comparable to Silicon Valley. Goldman Sachs is not the same as Twitter. Since I was on the other side of the table, I was able to better understand the culture of collaboration that the great founders of software companies have built.
Tech and the Bay Area region are not simply known for their free meals and on-campus hair salons; rather, they are known for leveling the playing field in terms of career opportunities. Because you provide something of value, you may expect to be valued in return. This equation has stayed the same for many generations and decades because bureaucratic organizations and executives who only care about themselves keep a tight grip on it. Just the fact that Elon Musk is upsetting the balance of the digital culture that most of us have grown to love is reason enough for us to make our voices heard.
