Free Speech returns to Twitter as Musk takes over

Unless President Joe Biden intervenes Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter seems to be a done deal.

To demonstrate how close the deal is to being completed, Musk changed his profile name to ‘Chief Twit’ and released a video of him entering Twitter headquarters carrying a kitchen sink.

It is suspected that Musk will officially take over Twitter on Friday, Oct. 28, 2022.

In a letter posted today, Musk revealed that his decision to purchase Twitter was for the sake of Free Speech in America as over the years the platform has repeatedly censored conservative voices.

The Daily Wire provides more details of Musk’s letter:

“The reason I acquired Twitter is because it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence,” Musk wrote. “There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right wing and far left wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.”

He also lamented that “traditional media” has “fueled and catered” content to polarized extremes while sacrificing dialogue for the sake of making money.

Twitter employees are in panic mode

Meanwhile, the employees of the social media giant are in absolute panic mode over the purchase and have actually circulated a letter providing a list of demands of their new ‘free speech’ owner.

Ironically, one of their demands is while moderators have been censoring conservative voices on the platform, that Musk must not fire any Twitter staff because of their political beliefs.

While there are hints of massive layoffs at the social media giant, the same employees who impacted the company’s bottom line by banning high-profile users they did not like, are now demanding that no one be let go.
