It depends.

Given the bile currently dripping from leftists, I'd say Twitter making it to this time next year would be a first step along the way.

It quite evidently was a failed business model. Maybe it still will fail, but root and branch reform was needed and that is what will happen/happening.
Bile from leftists, drivel from rightist. What's the difference?

How else could you interpret it?
I'm sure it's nothing to do with the several thousand accounts they banned following the spike.

Much more likely that Musk (who tried to pull out of the twitter deal because there were too many bots on the site) has secretly "managed to eliminate much of the botting" and not mentioned it at all. He's well known for his modesty, so I'm sure he doesn't want the plaudits for solving a problem that no website has ever been able to do.

And ppl say I go wild with conspiracy theories!

If he had completely eliminated all (or most) of the botting we'd have certainly heard about it from the horses mouth.

What surprises me is that there wasn't blocking previously on accounts that were posting much quicker than a human could type. So I wonder yet again what those 7000 staff were doing previously.

Finally we get to the point, which is that he hasn't "managed to eliminate much of the botting", as you claimed. Jesus wept, that was a waste of time.
