WOWsers!  Elon Musk proves to be a man of his word.    This would take a lotta courage: he just finished paying 44 biiiiiillllllion dollars for an asset, and first thing he had to is admit they improperly suppressed a valid story.  44 billion is a lotta lettuce.  He said he would tell all, which I doubted.  But he did it:

I keep going back to the same question: Had I (or anyone here) bought Twitter, when it was losing 4 million bucks a day, knowing that something radical had to be done or the whole enterprise goes bust, what would we do?  Specifically what could we have done any differently from what Musk did and is doing?  For starters a whole bunch of people would need to be cut from the payroll, a lot of them, 4 million dollars worth a day.  How many is that?  About 10k employees?  Did they have that many to start with?
