Elon is going to become another Howard Hughes.

Hughes actually did some cool shit on his own before going nuts. Elon was just rich, you don’t see Elon racing his cars or flying his rockets. Hughes was a record setting pilot.

I've drawing the Howard Hughs compression also, I don't think Elon has the same same condition but they're both crazy as hell. It feels like every day this week there has been some new controversial / insane policy change at twitter that contradicts his stance on free speech. I mean claiming to be a frees peach absolutist and then publicly banning journalist is seriously insane.

I feel like it's very possible Elon's in the middle of an episode and we're all just getting to witness it publicly while he's hyper focused on making twitter on making twitter more profitable,

My other theory is he's completely sane and just using all this media coverage as free marketing to drive up the twitters web traffic. Time will tell but now I'm leaning towards Elon being a Howard Hughes crazy genius.

Elon isn't close to Hughes. Hughes had great thoughts and ideas, a genius perhaps. Musk is an idiot pretending to be something else.

I guess every generation has to have one. Elon is Gen-X's Howard Hughes.

While Howard Hughes came from wealth, he actually invented things and truly innovated. Elon is just a mega rich incel troll.

Howard Hughes was a pioneer, but most importantly, he wasn’t a box person in disguise.
