While things seem to have calmed down a bit lately, Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter has been a never-ending string of judgment errors and internal scandals. Deactivating the copyright system, rehabilitating the highly controversial personalities on the platform, malicious and incompetent layoffs of thousands of employees, this is a scant anthology of the questionable decisions the billionaire has made since he came to power.
Suffice it to say that it’s easy to get lost in the middle of its folds, each more improbable than the next. The good news: a book will soon sum up the whole matter and possibly add some additional revelations. Writer Ben Mezrich has really made the news official on his Twitter account, without a bit of irony. Title ? “Breaking Twitter”.

Ben Mezrich is not on his first try. Indeed, he is also the author of “The Accidental Billionaires”, which greatly inspired David Fincher during the making of The Social Network film about the creation of Facebook. He also wrote a book about the GameStop incident. The book promises to be rich in revelation this time. “It will be a great adventure”promises to the author. “Elon Musk is one of the most complex characters of our time”it adds.
According to him, “Breaking Twitter” will not only tell the facts in detail. For him, the point is first and foremost to tell a story. “The cultural clash between the right and the left, but also about what freedom of expression means. » Meanwhile, its publisher is already expecting extraordinary success. Maybe to the point of making a movie. In any case, this is what the Ben Mezrich teaser looks like on his Twitter account.
