      Yes I did.

      I don’t know if he has any political affiliations, possibly a Libertarian.

      Might have to get a Twitter account and see what that place is about.

        • I'm not honestly sure why he wants it. Must suck to have so much money you can just buy massive companies because you feel like it (yes I know he is using others money)

            I am pretty sure he is the richest man on planet earth.

            And pretty much self made.

            I heard a story that some musical artist who he is a fan of was being restricted some how on Twitter (I really don’t know anything about Twitter) and it made him mad, so he decided to buy Twitter and “fix it” so the left wing mafia couldn’t dictate what was acceptable and what wasn’t.

            Probably “fake news”, lol

                But as members of TW, we both know a little about censorship, I think.

                And for the record, it wasn’t the censorship that bothered me, it was the way the mods and TW the cool kids operated by a different “code of conduct”.

                Thinking about Musk and Twitter, I am not sure he will succeed with his championing free speech, since everyone in a position of power has skeletons in the closet and want to keep them hidden.

                Everyone.

                  I think it's good to have rules but as you said those rules need to apply to everyone, you should not be able to break them just because you're in a position of so called power.

                Construction 3D printing firm Alquist 3D has announced plans to build 200 homes in the US state of Virginia.

                Having finished building the ‘first owner-occupied 3D printed home’ earlier this year, Alquist 3D has now revealed that it aims to carry out the largest construction project realized with the technology to-date, across-state in Pulaski and Roanoke.
