It’s our first day on Elon Musk’s Twitter, and users are already plotting the platform’s demise. They say the quickest technique to make Musk regret (and lose money) on his $44 billion Twitter acquisition is to tank the app’s value. And the easiest method to do that? Follow the lead of 2013-era Tumblr users.
In 2013, Tumblr sold to Yahoo for better than $1 billion and misplaced value practically immediately. Users exacerbated Yahoo’s poor administration by making Tumblr even weirder and wilder. Yahoo by no means recouped on its purchase and supplied it off at a loss as a part of an even bigger acquisition maintain Verizon in 2017. Verizon couldn’t work out what to do with Tumblr each and reportedly supplied to the creator of WordPress for a teensy $3 million in 2019.
Now tweeters are conspiring to help Twitter endure a similar future by shitposting and furry-fying Musk. My solely question is… will trolling have any affect the least bit on meme lord Elon Musk? He is infinitely further well-versed in the wiles of the net than Yahoo has ever been.
