Twitter Just Paid a Massive Price After Booting Trump

Recommended Posts

"Shares of Twitter were tumbling at the opening bell after it permanently kicked President Donald Trump and other conservatives off the social media platform.

There was a broad market selloff Monday to start the week, yet the 11 percent slide in shares of Twitter Inc. far outpaced those declines.

Twitter on Friday shut down @realDonaldTrump, claiming it did so because it feared that the president would use it for “further incitement of violence.”

Trump retorted that he’d be “building out our own platform in the near future. We will not be SILENCED!”"

I don't understand any of these companies making decisions that probably effect half of their customer base. If they looked at poll numbers they would see that half of the country is red and the other half is blue. Their customer base probably closely equals that.

Just the beginning.

Before it's over the top people over there will be in prison. 

Wholesale violation of many federal laws starting a few years ago.

Same for zuckerface. 

Also goobles and amazombie.

Will these companies become worth less or worthless?  Anybody remember myspace?  I didn't think so.

Jack Dorsey doesn't give a rat's ass. He has plenty of money and unless he gets Hunt brothers level of stupid he will continue to have lots of money. Twitter as a libtard echo chamber will still have Yahoo and other sites reporting Tweets as news.

It's a publicly traded company.  He has to answer to the people who own his stock.

If he totally destroys his company...he'll be fired.

Your right.  The problem as I see it, these monkeys just move on with their money and start another sensation that everyone flocks to till becomes a disaster.   As mentioned above, who remembers  "myspace" but I doubt the creator is hurting.

He sold it for almost half a billion.  So he probably walked away doing very well after paying off investors, any dept, etc.

It is, however, still around.

I understand that Parler now has a new server company.  The company that hosts GAB, EPIK has opened negotiation with them.  Seems the company is totally independent of the "GoogleAmazon" companies  

https://macdailynews.com/2021/01/12/parler-finds-a-new-home/

As twitter stocks take a dump look for Parler and GAB to continue their climb.  For those that do not know I understand that Gabs Dissenter browser does not remove comments that are legal but not to their political leanings...

If any major share holders have asked for him to be fired it has not made the news. Granted the MSM loves to ignore stories they don't like.

Twitter is chickens**t.

Don't believe me? Read this.

That was published in Forbes and deleted shortly after. Where have we heard that one before?

Like the author says, the media has given Twitter  "outsized influence". The numbers speak for themselves. Or as they say in Latin, "Moneyus ipsa loquitur".

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday evening that his company’s decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform set a “dangerous” precedent and said that it was ultimately a “failure” by the company to “promote healthy conversation.”

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: We Set A ‘Dangerous’ Precedent By Banning Trump | The Daily Wire

 

That financial hit made them care. No mention of the thousands upon thousands of other Trump supporting twitter accounts that they banned. 

 

F'em

Liberal philosophy is based on ignoring others and only seeing what you want to see and hear.  This justifies everything a liberal does, since they perceive no opposition.  Their solution is ignorance.

We have been told they are private businesses and our side respects private businesses. 

Leaving them to rot isn't an altogether meritless strategy, but it takes time.

More direct action should come from our government, but since they are a good chunk of funding for some of these companies I don't see that happening.

I guess the FBI is complaining that social media banning so many people is making it hard for them to track who is planning to protest the inaugeration.:uglylol:

Unfortunately a massive drop or jump in a publicly traded company’s stock price only affects the company if it was planning to sell additional stock or buy back some stock at the time of the massive change.
