What to say? I thought the news about Twitter being sold to Elon Musk was a late April Fool’s joke. Its employees learned about it via the platform, not from the company. I’m following this news with the realistic approach of “I have no control in this matter.” This being said, I’ve had a Twitter account since 2008, I work in digital marketing, and this newsletter platform I’m writing on (Revue) is owned by Twitter. So… there’s that.
