I still very much doubt that the kind of people beating off over "anti-woke" rhetoric are currently making up enough of a demographic of any EV out there to even come close to competing with the types mostly buying EVs these days.

Yeah that’s not the demo buying them. I think the rise in EVs is due to more options hitting the market from almost every auto maker, the marketing push for them (every company is running commercials now for their EV(s)) and mostly every company gets to offer x amount of tax credits/incentives to purchasers and themselves to sell EVs. Tesla has already exhausted theirs but the major auto makers still have their allotment to offer and take advantage of.

With Ford, VW, Hyundai. Nissan etc entering the market, I would not be surprised if Tesla's market share is below 50% now. I don't think they are selling less cars, just people are buying better alternatives to the crap Musk puts out there. The only thing left Tesla has over the competition is a better fast charging network

Their market share is already below 50%. It will continue to shrink unless they bring the quality up and the price point down. They are likely one the most overvalued company on the exchange.

Kias are everywhere. The point on the charging is the last step as that is very limiting still. Once others can charge anywhere, Teslas are just over-priced.

Looks like Musk is still posturing to get a lower price for Twitter. He has a Trumpian-like ability to get the press to do his bidding through "news stories" that are actually press releases.

He’s not buying twitter. It was all a reason to dump massive amount of his Tesla stock near all time highs. He’ll pay the couple billion dollar termination fee and blame the bots or some stupid reason all the while he cashed out something like $20B of Tesla stock.

I have this fantasy in my head where some altruistic guy with 300 billion dollars comes along and buys Twitter and then kills it for the good of humankind.

It could be some sort of placebo affect, but the only good thing Elon did (for me) was blasting out the one tweet about how you could switch your feed to "Latest" tweets. I tried it and my use plummeted. I'll still check, but poke around and then leave instead of being sucked into high "engagement" viral stuff.

If you read this article, he's done a pretty good job of hammering it, however. Might be a death spiral, if I was on twitters board I'd fight it too
