    I’m pretty sure Elon can pay that btw.

    But that will involve more TSLA stock fire sales (as that’s literally what he did the last time he needed to pay Twitter’s bills, his “net worth” is mostly unrealized gains from his shares) and he will face more backlash for that from Tesla investors. His house of cards will collapse quicker the more he resorts to that as there’s a limit to how long Tesla investors can stay patient with him treating them as his personal ATM.

      While true, we are only talking about $2 to $3 Billion in losses a year.

      How long do you think it’d take before Elon truly felt that burn? Maybe 5+ years, right? Maybe longer.

      This is a man who conjured up $20+ Billion in cash last year to buy Twitter after all. He can take a few $2 or $3 Billion losses for a while.

      Now SpaceX is also losing money and Tesla also looks like it’s lost a ton of reputation. So that’s what’s gonna hurt Elon. But Twitter nonsense is unfortunately a rounding error in all of this.
