Be aware that I never said Musk CREATED Tesla. He didn’t. He just made it a success, against long odds. If you really want to understand how amazing that was, look at the DeLorian.

Mr DeLorean never got a government handout. He financed the old fashioned way, with cocaine!
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Are you sure it was genius and not just remarkable timing and a limitless advertising budget? We all want electric cars. Only the rich could get Teslas. I still can't.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I get your angle but not even close to the same thing other than them both being cars and egos involved. But you are convinced Elon is visionary, I'm just going to have to disagree with one of my favorite authors on this one.
 
Wherein Steven King made the mistake of saying that Elon Musk did a good job with Tesla and is now forced to desperately backpedal and clarify in the face of the angry mob
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
What happened that Stephen King is being nice to Elon Musk now? Oh my God, has Pennywise come back?
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Tesla founders were on the brink of filing a bankruptcy. Without Elon, these 2 founders would have let Tesla go into a bankruptcy and we would not be driving Tesla today or another EV. GM, Ford, and other legacy ICE makers would not making an EV if Elon wasn’t successful.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Really. Books. Stick with books.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Well it helps when you get government subsidies
 
In reply to @StephenKing
This is a most simple plot. Sorry old mate but you've either been hacked or knackered.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Right. Ford made electric cars way. back when
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Fair point. Let's see how the next couple years go. It may continue to succeed, but a lot can go wrong for Tesla, not the least of which is the damage he has done to the brand, since announcing he was taking over Twitter. For many observers, it's gone from cool to fool.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
He stole it from the founders
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Unfortunately, we taxpayers gave Musk tons of money to start his business. 😡
 
DeLorian didn't get a half Billion dollar bailout from the Feds !
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Ah yes, the long odds of being completely dependent on government subsidies.
 
Got a new story for you to write, the title of it is out before the story is written. It's called "Shovels." It's based on the horrors of an author. Start digging. Oh my bad, I meant to say start writing.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Thanks for supporting Twitter and @elonmusk by staying on the platform and tweeting. 😁
 
In reply to @StephenKing
He reminds me of Henry Ford. Ford was also a bigot who nearly bankrupted his company.
 
never thought i"d be blocking stephen king but here we are.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Yup. Just because I think you're one of the better (best?) writers out there doesn't mean I would want you to fix my car, or do my taxes.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
The only reason Telsa is still around is because Elon sold carbon credits to the other car manufacturers so they could keep on making cars that pollute. Without that income Tesla would be bankrupt.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
The question is whether Tesla and SpaceX are successful thanks to Elon, or despite him.
 
Be aware that I never said uou created horror writing. You didn't. You just made a success from stealing others ideas. Golf clap ya fugly asshole
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Well said....what's sad as we are all humans, with families and kids and mouths to feed and in America ( most states allow you to fire people with "NO REASON" at all...all the years you spent training in college and gaining knowledge, all the time spent on the job
 
In reply to @StephenKing
if john deloren had access to capital, like Elon has, and the gov't subsidaries , he may not have needed to Cocaine to find Deloren..just a thought
 
In reply to @StephenKing
..and Hitler was great with Blondy the dog ?
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I think you should stop your comments while you are ahead!
 
I say this as a massive Pontiac fan... you're gonna rep John DeLorean? Really? The car company that made one shitty car that looked cool and went under cause the Creator got busted for Coke? That John DeLorean? I think you must be thinking of Lee Iacocca, buddy.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
As usual he just went into it (this time EVs) at the right time. He didn’t start the revolution. He just jumped on the wave first and rode it.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
you spelled Delorean wrong!
 
In reply to @StephenKing
The Tesla can't travel through time but.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
John Delorian was framed by the gov't because the big 3 at the time were scared what his car would do to their profits. Elon on the other hand stolen, lied, and bribed his way to where he is now, to me he is and will fall like SBF very soon. And I hope your Tesla does not burn up
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Without Tesla, EVs might have never reached the light of day. Tesla accelerated transition to sustainable energy, and forced incumbent car companies to transition to EV. It is only through Tesla that EV became cool. If Elon isn’t involved, I doubt it will be successful
 
In reply to @StephenKing
It's destined to be the Blackberry of electric vehicles.....
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Careful Steph or you’ll be Canceled by your peeps..!
 
In reply to @StephenKing
The new Delorian vs old! What made it famous was Back to the future pic.twitter.com/JZf6ipWCvN
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Exactly. Musk is a clown. He had backers and people who knew what they were doing. But he himself is a degenerate spoiled punk..
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Elon seems to be occupying a lot of space in your head. Why?
 
In reply to @StephenKing
He’s also single handedly ruining the night sky by launching tens of thousands of Starlink satellites into low orbit 😢
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I just want to say, in my experience Stephen King horror movies are not that scary, you could learn a-lot from the movie “Smile”. I know your more of a horror book writer but your movies should hit the scary mark better.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Something tells me you saw my Tweet! Okay time to talk about something WAAAY more important then. PLEASE don't let anyone make "The Talisman" wrong! I know this may seem subjective but give me a chance to make sense. Many book adaptations have been MESSED UP recently, they will..
 
In reply to @StephenKing
DeLorian never had government subsidies to keep it going...
 
In reply to @StephenKing
whats your opinion on musk being ceo of twitter? i want him to decline soon very soon
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Snarky snarky snarky little boy needs a vacation to go to Hawaii greener warmer drink some juice get some sun get some good rest smile or put a pen between your teeth it’ll make you smile and increase your endorphins. Yay.😁
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Mr.King I know for fact you are smarter then what you are tweeting I just know it, your testing me I feel , you can’t be on both sides so do everyone a favor and choose one of these options. 1.Stephen King Supports Elon Musk. 2. Stephen King Doesn’t support Elon Musk. Choose one
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
You know what was really amazing though? creating it...
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Stephen, maybe get a landscape crew to clean up those trees and bushes away from the house and get the house power washed so you can blend in with the rest of the neighborhood with their decent clean homes. Js.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
He created PayPal. Nikola Tesla, according to legend, created the electric car.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Child molestation, torture and human trafficking are unethical. There is no excuse.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Stop crying about the richest person in the world. He's a genius of our time. Let him.be. he does great things for humanity and seems to really care.. plus he's funny as hell on Twitter. Just cause he don't like his politics your a hater which is sickening
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Tesla has more fires than a Ford Pinto
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Then that's not "visionary" right? He's essentially Edison. That's not even remotely a compliment.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
You are in line with Munger
 
In reply to @StephenKing
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Apples and Oranges. The Delorean weighed a shit ton because it was stainless steel - not really viable considering the fuel crisis/limitation at the time, and John was NOT a good biz man. @stephenking
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Agree. The flaw is that success in one area does not means he will be successful in others. He seems to not have learned that.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
You are a real boot licker. Aren't you?
 
In reply to @StephenKing
By abusing government subsidiaries
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Delores was a success? Stick to writing horror stories, you troll
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I would rather have a huyndai or any other EV, then proRussia Elon Mask Tesla
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
The original Tesla Roadster was jointly developed by Lotus and is essentially a battery powered Elise that has little in common with any current Tesla. I think Musk has been at the forefront of bringing electrics into the mainstream. Not excusing his destructive nuttiness
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Congratulation for creating a word that actually doesn't exist.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
No one cares what your thoughts are on this.
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Hey guys please help me.I currently don't have any jobs and homeless.I tried my best to find job & I failed to do so. I'm trying to rise $150 so that I can migrate to new city and find a job to feed myself and my dog. Please donate $1 if possible 🙏 paypal.me/Sheshachala #help
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Twitter will be a success, against long odds. @elonmusk
 
You wrote Christine, FFS. Time for an update.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Wasn’t DeLorian arrested? The DeLorian also came in very bad economic times as well. This is what I remembered.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
and you never CREATED Shawshank Redemption, either… film of which was far better than the short story.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Is this still about the 8 dollars.. ?
 
In reply to @StephenKing
You’re right. Can I still yell (in type) that he’s still no visionary? Being wealthy enough to buy everyone isn’t vision. It’s just scattershot with a whole lot of bullets somebody handed to you the minute you were born.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Musk makes everything a success he touches...unlike you
 
In reply to @StephenKing
You could make that argument about every technology that was ahead of it's time. Musk didn't make Tesla a success. The dirty hippies buying those ugly ass 1st-gen Prius's did. Millennial tree huggers and people who were willing to "green" important before it was cool did.
 
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
DeLorean's downfall was moving cocaine in his cars. Musk's was buying something and running it into the ground, quicker than an auto-driving Tesla.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
That is the point, just as you said, he made it a success against long odds. Same with rockets, same with PayPal, same with Twitter. You are here, tweeting like a bird.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Do you want me to pay your $8 a month since you can't afford it? You seem like you're making a cry for help.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
And is a great focking story. Good ass.
