  1. Elon musk, putin, xi, palmer luckey and trump are going down, in the next 2 years everyone that has been oppressed by these rulers will have drone swarms. millions, and they will dogfight anything palmer luckey can build and win. jan 6th will never happen again.

  2. Without parag it shall be called not Twitter
    As without musk in tesla

  3. You <absolutely nailed these past few moves. Here’s some advice: Don’t trade the Indices. Trade individual issues in a balanced portfolio with a slight bias to either the long or the short side. Also – Be a trader not an investor. If the market is up 900 or down 900, It really doesn’t matter. Value and pricing are more than non-contextual floating abstractions. Know this: There are many stocks which historically have their lows in April and their highs in October and others that have their lows in October and their highs in April. To capitalize on these stock cycles, you should monitor many stocks over time and recognize when and where to establish positions. When you see two different stocks that have “opposite polarity”, it is easy to move from one into the other. That is to say, once the momentum of one stock has burned itself out, the other will be catching fire. This is well illustrated in the book I read called Stock Market Tradecraft. In an example it shows how when AAPL was being accumulated CSCO, MSFT, INTC and ORCL were being Dumped and shorted (Information Management Section). It's RIGGED. WAKE UP fortunes are being made at the moment. Freedom Day means you are free to use your own money to live your best life," Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all. "In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it." My desire to be financial stable and debt free allowed me to come in contact with Mrs Robin Moore, a pro crypto trader and trade signal provider that taught me how advised me to invest into crypto and trade with her trade signal which i did and since the expedition, i <have won trades of over 16 BTC with an elementary of 4.8BTC. She is obtainable to tutor and impart trade signals to those that are eager to grasp how to trade or copy trade with her trade signal.

  4. With this new development, I believe Twitter will have an impact on TSLA stocks. Tesla's future excites me. Should I purchase before or after the split? It's impossible to choose. I'll perform both tasks.

  5. Investors should avoid picking stocks unless they are actually willing to research the company. If you listen to these YouTube guys and chase big returns by investing in the latest hot stock, you're likely to overpay

  6. Perfect self-driving is too difficult to commercialize.

    However, non-stop high-speed driving is possible on a tunnel-type dedicated passageway with no obstacles.

    a dedicated passage through which many cars run fast… and a swift means of transportation using it.

    Nonstop over 100 km/h in the city center… is that really possible?

  7. It would be better that he gave money to the poor in Africa instead of wasting money on his ego. Nobody ever knew about this man before. I do believe that he works for someone and that the statistics about his money are one big lie. He seems like an idiot, demon, egocentric person and maniac. Media should be ashamed of promoting people like him.

  8. Cramer gives me cartoon vibez 😂🤣 like ed ed n eddie or something along those lines

  9. I read about a man in his 50s that started investing in stocks then retired in 2years with over $6million, that right there is my utmost goal and I'd really appreciate clues and tips on how to reach this goal within 5years

  10. Ltb B59分钟前

    Don't be fooled, Musk has a huge profit deal with the Chinese government, under the guise of free speech, will Twitter become a propaganda tool for Chinese government?

  11. These so called businesses that ‘plan to boycott’ Twitter, will soon find themselves cancelled/boycotted by their own stupidity. Fate loves irony!

  12. In 2020, anyone who posted almost anything about the Hunter laptop story was censored on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. There needs to be at least one social media platform where the truth is not censored.

  13. Oh, Twitter staff’s past actions are going to get auuuuuudited. Trust will come when the shady stuff we know has been going on gets exposed. “Sunlight is the best disinfectant”. It’s clear you lot are panicking, and you have to ask yourself “Why?”. It’s not because you are scared of ‘hate’ for minorities going up, as that’s your bread and butter.

  14. All liberals repeat after me …..Elons my daddy and I love free speech

  15. Not a fan of Elon, but it's hard to imagine him being worse than the team he's replacing.

  16. Makes sense. Show up for a few months tear the whole place apart, weed out all the hacks that work there. Then appoint a new ceo who will bring in new ppl and start all over. Go Elon!

  17. I put more confidence in Elon putting together a reliable team to run a company, then I do some cnbc buffoon criticizing him. one is a news hack, the other is the RICHEST MAN in the world.

  18. Damn investors will follow elon anywhere at this point.

    I can't blame them I really think Elon can make twitter just as successful as all his other companies.

  19. Elon Musk chose those specific investors for a reason. I'm behind Elon Musk in anything he does, I could care less about his money it's the way he thinks and his perspective on life that is so intriguing.

  20. Elon, I am hearing rumors that the sponsors are threatening to boycott Twitter because you bought it. We the people will stand with you sir. We will boycott any of them that try this BS.
