    This twitter thread is incredible.
    Yes, sometimes scary, but I don't think it's FUD. It has a ring of truth to these software developer's ears.

    Read at the risk of your own sanity.
    If you just want to be happy with your Tesla ownership, skip it. :)

    For those of us who've been in a startup-level software-development situation, a lot of this sounds eerily familiar.

    It's not all bad though - he mentions a couple times about how safe the basic car is. :)

    Interesting reading. I know a guy that works at ford that tells stories exactly like this.

    Not to say things can’t be improved. They should definitely work to that end. But ford seems to still be in business and all their customers haven’t died despite the same kind of stories.

    Thanks for posting. I'm a developer myself so I enjoyed it and can relate. Or at least understand the mindset of guys like that (@MRinPDX - good description).

    But it does remind me of the time I quit chorizo forever after reading an ingredients label.
