The best way to report on the evolving Twitter story is definitely in the mode of a foreign correspondent covering the breakdown of the USSR. In today's dispatch:

This is mostly a joke.
FYI - in case you're wondering, I've preemptively self-redacted myself for my own safety.
There has been a noticeable increase in stories claiming that government spies of all sorts have infiltrated their way through the tech industry. But what I want to know is ████████████and ████████ ?? Makes you think, doesn't it? mintpressnews.com/revealed-forme…

Reposting this Paul Tucker paper about the unintended fiscal costs of raising interest rates when Cbank balance sheets are QE expanded. It is essential reading. See my BSW wrap for a summary. ifs.org.uk/sites/default/…

@jack Not everything needs to have “bird” in the name! Too many bird groups fighting each internally other at Twitter. Angry Birds.

Has anyone considered that if "reparations" come with conditionality set by Western nations, they're not really "reparations" as much as another soft form of neo-colonialism, where we dictate to developing countries how they should organise themselves?
Actually hold that thought. Boris says we can't afford them after all. telegraph.co.uk/politics/2022/…
Climate reparations are coming. Though really we can trace it all back to the Victorians, so maybe King Charles could do the honourable thing and sell a few castles to fund the whole thing? digitaleditions.telegraph.co.uk/data/1149/read…
As seen with Archegos, imperfect information on overall positions leads to inadequate risk management. So a first step is for lenders to require greater transparency of hidden #leverage taken by their counterparties, says Sarah Breeden @bankofengland

Quality write-up at @theblindsp0t by @izakaminska; this FT-grade monetary and fiscal policy coverage with level-headed crypto🤯plus tech and geopolitical scoop must have taken a lot of time to put together; some views are off consensus too (i.e. not regurgitated sell-side notes)twitter.com/izakaminska/st…i

Twitter jobs look to have operated like govt and institutional jobs during communism. A lucrative gateway to making a bit on the side. If a black market for verification existed, the tick was entirely meaningless. Reducing its marginal value to $8 on a universal basis makes sense

I told cbankers gathered at the Santander Int’l Banking Conf on Thurs that authorities need to engage with the public on CBDC design and listen to their concerns. Not just project on them. If not @rustyrockets would rightly lead debate. Little did I know: youtu.be/vTOYJ4QCPnI

But of course trust in govt to do this is relative. In Nigeria the eNaira has failed to capture market share because trust in public institutions is low. Private sector competitors are seen as more reliable & trustworthy. To gain trust, western govts need to listen to the people
On the fringes of the conf it became clear the rationale for a CBDC is programmability and state control of retail payments. The cbanks/states think they are protecting consumers from private sector dominance. They see it as the provision of a public good - Democratic.
Here’s the referenced CBDC panel in which I allude to the Russell Brand factor. To be clear, I think it’s great he is leading a two-sided debate on this. It’s just a shame that nobody in authority feels inclined to do the same. youtu.be/K5HVHDI4wG0

This has always been clear. Anyone saying otherwise is a propagandist. Also over 95% of PV is made in China. There is no energy security in that! ft.com/content/760324…
There is no scenario where today’s renewable tech leads us to a situation where we can replace fossil fuel and not suffer a major loss of quality of life. None. We need gas as a transition fuel until we can bring nuclear back on line.
Must watch at 3.24.30 where @philippilk bursts Anne Diamond’s renewable bubble. Amazing how the public has been entirely misled on the efficacy of renewables. They all seem to think the tech is proven and available now, just a question or investment. youtu.be/HPniwLVztyQ
At that point it will be those who understand the value of that data who will be able to profiteer. If the public remains ignorant of that value it might be inclined to sell off data rights in exchange for short-term micro gain. The emergence of new data oligarchs is then likely
His commitment to bitcoin speaks of a man who was never happy about the centralizing Soviet style forces that took over Twitter. And it does make me wonder if the true shock therapy privatisation moment will be the public being given back the control of their own data.
Of course maybe - just maybe - this is where @jack’s bluesky project comes into the frame. Jack for the large part remains an enigma to me. I interpreted the Rasputin phase as a signal that he wasn’t ever really in control. A man with a gun to his head.
This is why all things considered it would be preferable I think if Elon’s plan did succeed. If not this is a Tower of Babel moment, and the new influencer oligarchs will be those who understand the value of verification.
I’ve likened Elon’s Twitter reform to Gorbachev’s perestroika. It is analogous in many ways. Perestroika failed, however, because economic allocation reflective of true supply and demand had been repressed for too long. The restructuring invited highly disruptive economic forces

@izakaminska It's time for the privatisation of the memes of production...

Either way, Twitter is on the precipice of experiencing its own “shock therapy” moment. Tho this time there won’t be a privatisation of the means of production as a much as privatisation content moderation.
There is a not insignificant chance that “Verification perestroika” sees the Twitter Soviet effectively dissolved by all the separatist components ejecting themselves from the Union & forging their own independent states. Or maybe that’s already happened & Elon is also Yeltsin?
I see the Elon reforms doing the same. Elon has basically taken control of a fragmenting Twitter USSR which through its oppressive defensive policies has already spawned separatist movements in the form of Gab, Parler, Truth etc.
