2 Definitely. We're not sure what moves Elon will make to try and fix the mess that is Twitter, and then of course we know the employees will drag their feet, misinterpret, and otherwise resist any effective change, and there will be an enormous amount of wailing and gnashing of teeth at how awful this is, how dare some rich person buy a media company and try and change it (cough, Bezos, cough, Carlos Slim), and how horrible it is that *those people* can actually say *those things* on the internet and not get blocked and banned.
I will be very interested to see if Elon just tries to fix policies so that they are actually neutral and implemented as such, or if he goes direct "unban that person, ban that person, don't ban any of those..."

3 Originally thought infographic might make a very strong case.

Then noticed 'midterm candidates'.  So, representatives and senators, and hence something that doesn't only track ideological preference.  Also tracks buying influence with likely winners, so that they don't use screw over your business.

So, you would somewhat get a party bias at times that tracks with where your employees are located. 

Twitter is in San Francisco, and it is unlikely that Pelosi's organization is lazy about shaking people down for protection.

Anyhow, Tesla is lower donating, but also a pretty high fraction Dem.  Raises the question about when the data is from, and what locations the employees were at.

I think Twitter is possibly somewhat subsumed by Pelosi's operation.  If so, you might only be able to address things quickly by building fresh organization from scratch elsewhere, and transfer elements of responsibility over, without moving people.  Barring that, these kids at twitter were really excited about what Biden and Pelosi could do for them, both of whom are old and infirm, and may die of natural causes before Musk could make significant changes at Twitter.
