Mr. Musk’s firings followed a tweet, posted on Sunday, in which he wrote that Twitter was “super slow in many countries” because of the way it handled data.“This is wrong,” Eric Frohnhoefer, a Twitter developer, responded. Mr. Musk invited Mr. Frohnhoefer to correct the mistake, and the two exchanged several messages.

Twitter Threatens Legal Action Against Nonprofit That Tracks Hate Speech



I sometimes go back to my Twitter account just to see what's up, but this was the last straw. I won't miss it.

It took a week...but the stuff I mentioned below has finally been completed (tweets are now posts).

It is just incredible that he took one of the great brands on the planet...and threw it away.  Tweeting was a globally known thing with platform reference and the activity all rolled into one...and he has changed that to be "posted on X"?  

Time will tell, but it seems more like he's trying to kill the platform than he is growing it.

It really feels like he's trying to destroy the company at this point. 

The bird has been replaced on the site, but in true Musk Twitter style, they haven't updated the favicon (the icon on the tabs of your browser).

It's what a rebranding would look like if it was managed by a 5th grader.

The site still has tweets.  Is he going to keep tweeting without the bird?  Even Trump has "truths".  Change it to "post" or "share" or something...but if it tweets like a bird...it's twitter.

Something must be up at Tesla, or Space X, or somewhere... because this level of foolish attention feels like a diversion it's so stupid.

Rebranding to X ?  WTF. 

Being overly attached to an idea can be fatal in business.  And Elon has been attached to his overarching concept of what X is or will be, for a long time.

There has to be a very good reason to abandon a brand and its existing recognition.  Elon has done a great deal already to salvage the damaged brand.  And now - abandon it?

Really dumb move, IMO.  Regardless of outcome, marketing and brand management courses in the future will likely add the rebranding of Twitter to X to the curriculum.

These are all terrible numbers, and due largely to the exploding complexity of the Nav/entertainment systems and attempted integration with cell phones.  (Probably why Lexus rates so high in "reliability" - they tend to lag the competition in features.  Our 2008 Lexus can't even connect to an iPod!)

Oh, and I found this article about how JD Powers does their rating, suggesting why Tesla rates so low:

I really want to go to electric, but we do a 5K mile road trip twice a year, and want to do a few more. half of that trip has very limited electric infrastructure right now.  I'm thinking I might just build an electric buggy for a demo/experiment. 


IF we purchase another car in our lifetimes it will likely be a hybrid, not an electric. Our current '16 Ford Focus doesn't do bad, tho - reliably over 40mpg on roadtrips.
