    People keep remembering the funny posts from Twitter they loved, but I think the highlight of twitter for me is the day the US killed Bin Laden and we found out because The Rock tweeted it out.

    This thread made me realize Twitter failing in certain ways can and will expose people to real harm: harassment, leaked private info, arrests, and more.

    This is why I deactivated my account last week. Will be interesting to see if the auto-deletion function even works in a month.

    It is probably just referencing a room that he's called all these meetings at, so everyone concerned would know. We don't have the context because we don't work there.

    It's along the lines of:
    "Hey, I'm going to the 6th floor, need anything?" --> "Hey, I'm going to the (place with the) snack machine, need anything?"

    God he's still obsessed with thinking that lines of code made = BESTEST ENGINEEENNEEERR EBER! It'd be hilarious if it wasn't so depressingly childish.

    At this point he might as well hire the engineers from Tiny Desk Corporation, he'd probably have better success.

    Lines of code that jut out from the other lines to form a fortified outpost for crossfire.

    ... It's really not any more nonsensical than any other meaning of the word.

    "Salient" probably rattles around Elon's head as one of those "words that I think make me sound smart" that he trots out when he runs his sound-hole.

    There's a chance this is a canary trap - Musk's trying to find whoever's still leaking to the press by sending out different details to different people and seeing which ones reach the media. You may ask "Oh come on, who'd be that petty, paranoid and pathetic at this stage?", to which the answer is "Elon Musk, and we know because he's done it before."
