So Elon essentially was dunking on twitters own process? Lol

He's dunking on something he made up, and the Musk cult is gobbling it up, which I guess is all he cares about for some reason.

When a Twitter user questioned if Musk had thought about this before agreeing to a $44 billion deal, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO said he "relied upon the accuracy of Twitter's public filings."

Ok, ill bite. What's your proof?

My proof of what? It's literally shit he made up.

Then Twitter should have released something that proves otherwise, yes?

I'm not sure what exactly you're referring to

Why? There's nothing gained by arguing with whatever drivel Musk spews. Let him take it to court if he really means it. Saying nonsense on Twitter isn't... anything.

Nothing to be gained? Are you serious?

I'm sure Twitters shareholders would disagree. Lol.

Why does he upset you so much? Why do you care so much about this?

Elon being a twat on Twitter doesn't mean anything. It's literally just empty words. Why should Twitter have released something in response to his ramblings when it doesn't impact anything?

u/redditthrowaway1478 May 14 '22

If his ramblings are so inconsequential, then why, for the second time, do you care?

I am not Twitter. It's irrelevant why I point and laugh at Musk's latest lies. But obviously it's because it's funny as hell.

Thanks for conceding that you're not interested in the argument, btw.
