The world's richest person in the world, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, is planning to take over the social media app of all social media apps–Twitter.


Currently, he is being sued by a Florida pension fund to prevent him from completing the $44 billion takeover of the social media company.
They said that under Delaware Law, Musk cannot complete the takeover until at least 2025.

But let's say we're there already. An unnamed Redditor asked:

"Elon Musk just bought Twitter. What happens next?"

People on social media could follow a trend.

Following A Trend

"People pretend to leave but don't actually leave."

– MrBananaStorm

The Other Platform

"Also: people declaring they're leaving for Instagram without realizing that's owned by Zucc."

– majima__goro

Owned

"next Elon buys Reddit."

– sanman

On To The Next

"Paperwork. Then checks cut to the stockholders to buy them out."

– User Deleted

The potential buyout might not cause any mayhem at all.

Life Goes On

"For me, nothing. Continue with my daily life without twitter, that sh*ts toxic."

– itsMondaybackwards

Ignorance Is Bliss

"Yea why are people so angry about this? I'm genuinely asking, I don't know anything about twitter and Elon Musk."

– doggrimoire

Pet-opia

"Cats and dogs living together."

– tewnewt

Some Things Never Change

"Nothing, Twitter stays the same hellhole lmao."

– ilovecatfish

No New Customer

"I'm not sure I care. Don't use it now, won't use it when he owns it."

– bh0

Some people are just bracing themselves.

Lies Resume

"The return of Donald Trump on twitter."

– laja7

Indication Of Damages Done

"Musk is wanting to boot the bots, which should undermine tons of election interference, but I fear they've already created a self-perpetuating monster. Twitter may be unable to distinguish between extremist and algorithm. Regardless of his success, it is a job that needs to be done."

– borg286

It's Conditional

"If he succeeds in removing 'unauthentic' content, it could be good for discourse. If he turns it into a misinformation free for all, I’m out."

– pallentx

No one knows for sure what's in store for us in a world of Musk ruling over the Twitterverse.

But let's focus on and help fast-track autonomous vehicles for safe public transportation before Twitter begins a potential crash-and-burn trajectory.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"
