Until then, the decision to bury Twitter brand and just use servers for the original purpose does not appear necessarily ruinous.

The problem is that Musk didnít buy twitter with his own money, but he borrowed a ton to buy twitter in a leveraged buyout.

As a result, twitter isnít just bleeding money like a typical unprofitable tech startup, itís now being sucked dry by high interest rates as well. And if Twitter fails to make those payments theyíll be forced to declare bankruptcy.

When people say Twitter might die, they arenít exaggerating. Musk has put the company on the road to ruin. Thereís a reason why people believe leveraged buyouts should be made illegal.

I wonder what the Saudis will do when they take over.

This does seem to tie into their recent expansions, such as buying up American Golf to whitewash any other issues they might have.
In fact, they might actually be able to blend it all together into something profitable.

...Musky still shouldn't go to the Middle East after this.

Saudis are more interested in sports washing right now. Evidently their current method is soccer: theyíve bought many, many, many players from big European teams, as well as enticing managers and coaches with fuck huge contracts too.

Ö evidently they think they can do it better than China did, as the Chinese did it about a decade ago and it didnít go so well for them.

Oh well, just means already inflated transfer fees and wages for soccer players in Europe get even worse.

A social media platform they "buy" with their residual credit from the trash bin of Bankruptcy Court should mesh well with that, no?

Maybe he should change his name to X.
You know how his son is called? I forgot the exact string, but it was something like X-<serial number>
