    Back to Phil… kind of a slap in the face to everyone that followed him on Twitter. 

    When a grown man throws that kind of baby tantrum over nothing, it’s just sad to see. 

    Phil’s always been classy (well, except for his “can’t innovate anymore…” comment back in the day. Hopefully he regains some composure and gets back to respecting his followers like a grown up.

    ... I keep asking where the line is to be drawn between free speech, 'alternate' facts and demonstrable lies ...?

    Also is it important to keep in mind that any 'vote' from users depends on who shows up, in a widely noted surveillance based online environment ...?

    Does meaningful collective action benefit from respectful civil discourse and vigorous fact rather than belief based debate...?

    Right, also let's wish Tesla goes bankrupt so Americans could all finally enjoy globalization and by Chinese electric cars, same for SpaceX so that NASA could keep buying seats in Russian rockets. /s
    Why shouldn’t I buy a Chinese car? Everything else I buy is made there. It’s not like I should owe any sort of loyalty to American manufacturing.

    Be very careful there Phil. More than  Half of this country  and likely more than half of the Apple users agree with Musk and his views on Free speech .

    So political statements like this is not what shareholders want to see.

    Ironically you are advising him to be weary of expressing his own free speech.

    Maybe the future of social media is one social media engine used exclusively by conservatives, and a different one used exclusively by socialists. Companies with a political agenda will use only one of these two engines, and they won't even advertise on the engine that doesn't suit their own political agenda. Neutral companies may never be allowed to advertise on either platform because they will be banned by each platform if they advertise on the other platform.

    Basically, you have to pick your side before you can interact with anyone on the Internet. Ultimately, socialists will have their own nationwide VPN and conservatives will be forced to have their own too. This will finally bring peace to the Internet. At least nobody will argue about politics anymore because everyone will be on their own political VPN.
    So anyone who is not "conservative" is by your definition a socialist? Not the best way to encourage respectful and honest exchange of ideas. Have fun with the pillow guy.

    Phil doesn’t want to be on StormFront, he’s getting off  like Sheryl Sandberg jumping from the sinking ship called Meta……

    I’m wondering if Tim Cook will close his account. He his one of the very few I follow along with NASA, Elon Musk, Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company.

    Why is it that when conservatives choose to do something they have "always" been "forced" to do it because someone else did it first (or was about to do it first)?

    This will finally bring peace to the Internet. At least nobody will argue about politics anymore because everyone will be on their own political VPN.
    Hahahaha! Man, I can't even tell if you're being serious here or not.


    Ultimately, the things that unite us are stronger than the things that divide us. But so many of us want to have our own way about every little thing that we will declare our permanent opposition to the "oppressive" forces of "the other." Dissent is always present; luckily, so too is love.

    Well no, as long as he represents Apple and is beholden to shareholders, he has a duty to act in a manner that will not damage the shareholders

    if he resigns, he can ran around with his pants off protesting a Twitter no problem!

    While the execs and C-level personnel have a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders, I'm not sure an Apple "Fellow" does, senior or otherwise. 

    Regardless, a lot of companies and shareholders are learning that remaining on Twitter is a bit of a gamble these days:

    "Half of this country... agrees with Musk"? Either you live in a country different than mine, or you need to share what you're smoking with the rest of the group.

    I think you like imagine your coastal state as America. Or did you think Biden won 140 million to 15 million? And not 80 million to 74 million? (California and New York was responsible for most of the difference) And the US senate is not 50-50 or Republicans don’t have the house?

    and I say this as somebody who voted for Biden

    and I will say it’s likely way more than half agree with Musk when it comes to free speech, I do and many of my friends who vote Democrat do as well.

    lastly, Schiller part of the executive team so he is c-suite

    Pole was seen by 126mill individual accounts only 16mill votes and Elon himself said a big bot population in the votes. 
    So all claims of half are exaggerated at best.

    Bot votes were from 12am to 6am when the No votes went up from 42-47, so…

    so you don’t think at  the 52 percent that just  gave the Republicans the house agrees with Musk?

    and I am telling you I usually vote Democrat as independent and I also agree with Musk.

    so I guess some of you do think Biden won 140 million to 15 million lol….

    yes watching CNN and read New York Rimes all the time can seem like it’s 90 percent Democrat most of the time but it’s not like that

    How would it damage shareholders by not being on Twitter? How did they manage before Twitter? What if Twitter goes bankrupt and the site closes for good? Will Apple stock tank?

    You think half the country agrees with
    musk based on the fact that trump lost the last election!? You must be the same kind of person who declared themselves the “moral majority” in the ‘80’s (religious wackos with a million or two members)

    I don’t know how many people agree with musk but his take on free speech is convoluted and ignorant.
