Twitter’s new African American owner, Elon Musk, is in full agreeance with every conservative who claims Twitter is a left-wing platform with extreme ideological biases.
The examples are far too numerous to ignore what’s been happening on Twitter since Donald Trump successfully tweeted his way to the White House.
There’s since been a concerted effort by Twitter executives to closely monitor and censor the content posted by conservative or right-wing users. Not to mention, THEY BANNED THE SITTING PRESIDENT for telling the truth about the 2020 presidential election.
If that isn’t biased, then what is?
The Tesla CEO is currently wrapping up a $44 billion purchase of Twitter with plans to turn the company private once the sale goes through. The deal was finally accepted after Twitter’s board of directors tried to sabotage it before realizing they were in serious violation of fiduciary laws.
Since then, Elon Musk has dropped some fantastic lines related to Twitter’s failings, including the extreme left-wing bias present on the social media platform.
Monday was no different.
In response to a tweet about verified users being able to promote violence against the pro-life movement, Musk responded with, “Twitter obv has a strong left wing bias.”
Here you go @elonmusk, when Twitter employees invariably lie to you about enforcement policy, maybe they can explain why a verified account is allowed to incite terrorism without any care in the world about being banned. pic.twitter.com/rCpuf5e1Ry

He followed that up with a tweet clarifying Twitter’s stance on free speech as ownership is transferred.
Like I said, my preference is to hew close to the laws of countries in which Twitter operates. If the citizens want something banned, then pass a law to do so, otherwise it should be allowed.

Musk has repeatedly clarified his position on free speech and how that relates to the user experience on Twitter. He believes Twitter should follow free speech laws commensurate with the countries it operates. This means that in America at least, all speech that is of non-threatening nature will be allowed on the social media platform.
For the record, there are a ton of examples of Twitter being insanely biased. Most notably, people have been suspended and punished for stating biological facts (a woman is a person with a vagina). Not to mention the Hunter Biden bombshell by the New York Post that was widely scrubbed off social media in order to protect Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
Will Elon Musk be able to get the job done? With the weight of world governments on his back, no one can be sure. But he is probably our best shot if we ever want to see social media become fun again.
