Twitter Schadenfreude Is The Feel Good Story Of The Week

In case you don’t know what schadenfreude is, it’s the German, of course, word for taking joy out of the misery of others.

Now, if the others are nice or innocent people that makes you a jerk. However, if the others, as in this case, are Marxist Twitter employees who hate free speech, well, you are encouraged to laugh, and laugh, and laugh at them.

FNC: Twitter employees have reportedly struggled with the news that the company is on the verge of being acquired by Tesla CEO Elon Musk with some of them too ‘shocked’ to speak over the billionaire’s plans to promote freedom of speech.

Several Twitter employees expressed serious concerns and fear over Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the company including a prominent worry that Musk would undo censorship mechanisms they had worked to implement over the years, The Washington Post reported Monday.

In reaction to news of the sale, some employees shared tear-filled emojis and memes of emotional breakdowns. In some cases, employees were ‘too in shock to speak’ about the company’s future.” Ah, such total amusement.

“Totally understand that this is entertainment for some,” one Twitter employee tweeted. “But please understand that this is certainly not entertainment for me.” You got that right. And great entertainment it is!

“The news today is so crazy I literally forgot I have COVID,” another posted. Perfect. Throwing a Covid reference in. Can’t forget to look like a victim!

New York Timesman Talmon Joseph Smith said the mood inside Twitter HQ is “absolutely insane” with a source telling him, “I feel like im going to throw up..I rly don’t wanna work for a company that is owned by Elon Musk.” Then quit and let the grownups take over.

What do these Bolshevik brats object to? This: “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential — I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.” Yup, the concept of free speech and American freedom. That’s what these Twitter employees hate and always have. This time they lose and the laughs are truly satisfying.
