Elon Musk Calls Out Twitter

Elon Musk

Elon Musk, one of America’s great inventors, scientists, and entrepreneurs, has called out Twitter, the social media giant, for its draconian censorship. “Given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy. Free speech is essential to a functioning democracy. What should be done?” (@elonmusk, Mar. 26, 2022). “Musk’s 79.1 million followers immediately called on him to either buy Twitter himself or build a new platform. Former CIA analyst and conservative radio host Buck Sexton tweeted, ‘Yes, Buy twitter or please build one. Save the country from these psycho Silicon Valley libs’” (“Elon Musk,” Fox Business, Mar. 26, 2022). Musk is founder of SpaceX and Tesla.
