In response to one of the tweets, Musk said it’s time for Twitter to offer the option of long tweets.

My most immediate takeaway from this novella of a thread is that Twitter is *way* late for long tweets!

Several followers began responding to the poll, making their point by saying that Musk shouldn’t spend so much money buying Twitter, but the money should be spent on fighting world hunger or building of shelters for the homeless.

Why mister Elon you can spend money for poor people there are millions of poor and many homeless people do something to provide shelter for homeless and low income people

New. He should use the money for something useful like world hunger or homelessness or something else worthwhile
