Why politics? Anyone on either side running for public office?

if not for politics Titter would've been DOA
the discussion is about political perspective of freedom of speech, not tech

The reason I created it in politics is because everyone seems to be saying his reasoning for his purchase has to do with Twitter censorship.

I know he's not new, I have a hunch who he is.  That Q had nothing to do with this topic or conversation.

And FTR, my point of view is no different than his. Was just making a point how nowadays everything is politics. Even ice cream.

He would need to sell a huge amount of Tesla stock to do this, right?

Not necessarily. He can borrow against his other assets, ie. Tesla shares.

Can he borrow that much? This is like 1/6 of his net worth. Even if Tesla stock remains stable, hed have to sell shares regularly to pay the interest on that loan, and incur huge capital gains tax liabilities in the process.
