Elon Musk Is Feeling the Pain That Conservatives Have Experienced for a While as Twitter Advertisers Bail
Welcome to the party, pal.
Anyone who makes a living in conservative media knows how challenging it is to feed the family when corporate media, Big Tech, and cancel culture are all coming after us. Many of us have experienced what taking on the "woke" crowd really means to our bottom line. Now, Elon Musk is starting to feel our pain as advertisers begin dropping Twitter.
Twitter has had a massive drop in revenue, due to activist groups pressuring advertisers, even though nothing has changed with content moderation and we did everything we could to appease the activists. Extremely messed up! They’re trying to destroy free speech in America.
For the richest man in the world who is worth hundreds of billions, a few million in lost revenue isn't going to really hurt him in the pocketbook. But it does hurt his pride as a businessman and if Twitter really starts hemorrhaging, it will be deemed a bad move to have paid so much for the site.
It's not for lack of trying. Musk has reached out to leftist leaders and activists in recent days to comfort them in their time of grief. It hasn't worked. It only proved that he's willing to bend to the woke mob. NOBODY benefits when they bend to the woke mob, which Musk is now learning the hard way.
Conservatives on Twitter welcomed him to their ongoing party:
Moral of the story: Never bow to the woke mob. They won't accept you. They won't back off. They'll double-down until you're annihilated. Embrace free speech and let's have discourse instead of wokeness.
Yes. Musk has appeased the left repeatedly. The last straw for me was his obsequious kneeling before the terroristic ADL. I deleted my brand new Twitter account already. He may betray everything he purports to believe, but he won't have me to advertise to. Hopefully, real Conservstives will see through his facade and respond accordingly.
IMO life was more peaceful before all the social media, where people expose their thoughts and feelings to the world, who can then be uncouth and nasty to people they don’t even know and can’t look in the face.
No wonder we have become so hostile.
