The lost alternative

Twitter, or how it is called now X, has all the characteristics of a company that should cease to exist. Catastrophic handover of the assets, chaotic decisions and controversy policy. But it is still operational. How come?

Everything we know about the business somehow is not applicable to this eccentric leader. Does it mean that if you have all the money in the world, you can do whatever you want to do?

Or does it mean that all the chaos was just another way to attract the attention and to earn free advertisement and attention from the audience?

Well Facebook tried to create alternative, but it seems like a colossal flop. Or maybe there is really no business idea and nothing that can make the business with microblogging appealing enough for big players to come and take it.

We live in an entrepreneur first business where competition and innovation are a key to success, yet some businesses are immune from an actual competition. And not having a solid alternative is a loss for the end user.

The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
