Disney, Apple, IBM, Comcast, Lionsgate all pulling their ads, leaving X in mass exodus. I am sure this will be great for X stock value. 😂🤡

He's not the only show in town. In fact, he's really a minor player with all the other social media options out there. Advertiser have a big pie to chose from and it's a buyers market. Companies that size spend money on advertising on dozens and dozens of different sources. X is just one of a long list they chose to run ads on. If they drop one or two those platforms, it's no big deal to them. However, It IS A BIG DEAL FOR X to lose that account.

Ok, so there is something specifically about X. We now know that X was targeted by Media Matters. According to Musk, MM set up an alternate account and then manipulated things to get big companies' ads to appear next to white supremacist material so they could get screenshots to use to get advertisers to drop X.

There's bad stuff on the major platforms, like Facebook and TikTok. I didn't understand before why all of sudden X was singled out.

How on earth can on "manipulate" ad placement? Regardless, I don't see what difference it makes where an ad is placed. If it's on a site, and a company advertisers on that site, then it appears that the company pays money to a white supremacist site. No way to spin it.
