The twits on Twitter

Well, the deal is done! Elon Musk "owns" Twitter, and he seems quite comfortable with the old advice: "You break it, you've bought it!" Of course, he's an odd duck... He bought it, first. Now everyone else fears that he's going to break it!
To quote an old acquaintance: Oh noes!
The various reactions to the news don't surprise me, at least, those coming from the usual  suspects. Commentators Right and Left are aghast and bemused. (By "commentators" I mean "Thought Leaders" and "Influencers" and other inconsequential people of note...:)[1] As well they should be!
I don't know what -if any- brand of politics Elon adheres to; and I don't particularly care. He has stated openly that he'd like the Twitter site to be a public forum, an open space for the expression and examination of opinions... From my perspective, that would be a great improvement — if he can implement the changes needed to re-form its culture.

I know few of us here are part of the Twitterverse, but  -and actually because of that fact- I'd like to ask:

CapX has a good article — about the "nuts and bolts" of the deal... Highly recommended!

Twitter has completely passed me by. I see its posts only when embedded or linked to in net press.
