Alex Skolnick Equates Elon Musk’s Twitter Takeover To The Titanic Disaster

Testament’s Alex Skolnick joined the debates about Elon Musk’s recent changes to Twitter rules. He criticized the billionaire’s run over the app and agreed with a user comparing Musk’s ‘takeover’ to Titanic’s fall down.

The CEO announced that with the new update, Twitter users would be able to read only a limited number of tweets each day. After this, someone shared a tweet comparing the website’s current state to the sinking of Titanic with the hashtag ‘R.I.P. Twitter.’

Answering this post, Skolnick wrote:

“Serious question: In the corporate world, is there an equivalent of the 25th Amendment? A framework that can be invoked by investors, shareholders, etc., when the commander of the ship has become more mad than Captain Ahab? Asking for many friends. R.I.P. Twitter.”

Upon that, another user defended Musk by sharing:

“Let’s see, Elon has built some of the biggest and most important companies in the world. He is not just a CEO but also the lead engineer. I doubt you have achieved a fraction of his success. Stay in your echo chamber if you want to feel safe.”

In response, the rocker added:

“More than one thing can be true. His past success, building of companies, etc., is undeniable. So is the fact that his Twitter reign is atrocious, the worst takeover of all time, financially & otherwise. They’re not mutually exclusive. Howard Hughes innovated too, then melted down.”

The Testament guitarist criticized Musk’s decisions about Twitter before. Talking about the CEO and his decision to let the users get blue checks for $8 a month, he wrote:

“He’s turned Twitter into a flaming wreck, not unlike his rocket yesterday. He’s causing respected, influential people to bail in droves. He’s elevated creeps. He’s had public meltdowns. Some may deny it, but that doesn’t change the facts.”
