The car is sleek, cool, and lets you virtue-signal at 60 mph. But the more Twitter’s new owner opens his mouth, the more embarrassing it is to drive one
Ever since Elon Musk took over Twitter, I’ve been reading about how droves of celebrities are fleeing the social media site. Whoopi Goldberg, Shonda Rhimes, Tea Leoni, Sara Bareilles, Toni Braxton, Gigi Hadid, Ken Olin — they’ve all announced (on Twitter, where else?) their intentions to shutter their accounts and leave.
I salute these celebs for decamping from the platform — I’m 100% in favor of the Twitter exodus. In just his first week as owner, Musk fired half his staff, retweeted a despicable conspiracy theory about Nancy Pelosi’s husband, invited a mentally ill rap singer back onto the site to spread antisemitic bile, kicked comedian Kathy Griffin off after she had the audacity to poke fun at him and decided to charge people $8 to have a little blue check mark next to their names.
