How Congress Can Prevent Elon Musk from Turning Twitter Back Into an Unfettered Disinformation Machine.
But, even though the financial logic of the deal is straightforward, the implications of Musk taking control of Twitter are, from a broader perspective, potentially highly problematic, especially since he still hasn’t answered some pressing questions about his intentions for the site, including whether he plans to allow Donald Trump back onto it…
But none of Musk’s suggestions addressed the fundamental issue of which approach Twitter will now take toward content moderation. Will the company maintain the heavy investments in artificial intelligence and human monitors that it has made in recent years?Will it expand these monitoring efforts as demanded by the new European law? Or will it move in the other direction, dismantling them and allowing the return of former users it had suspended or banned, particularly Trump?

The Cat Empire
The last hegemony that went up against Elon is now under his complete control; conquered in days.
You sure you wanna do this Europe?
We’ve seen your books – he can afford you.
The Europeans believe that more and more regulation is their greatest weapon. The imminent arrival of the reality stick spearheaded by unforseen (by them) consequences of the gigantic implosion of their ridiculous energy policies.
It will cause untold misery to millions.
And that’s just the beginning. Elon Musk and free speech on Twitter will be the least of their problems.
Twitter was and still is an unfettered disinformation machine, Elon is letting back in the people who will push against that and let the marketplace for ideas determine the result. Then its up to us to determine what is true and what is not. Lefties are only disturbed by this because deep down they want to believe that Marxism is great for humanity but truly it’s a load of bollox that doesn’t stand up to criticism. Their solution is not to abandon poor ideas but to remove the criticism.
Musk has built his fortune on the back of Government Legislation and taxpayer subsidies with Tesla and Space X, including Sky-Link Satellite Internet System.
Maybe I’m too cynical but the closer the Trump Truth Social network gets to completion and roll-out on all platforms the more that government worries about “Disinformation”.
The weirdos, spivs and perverts of “The West” are actually using Orwell’s 1984 as their go to instruction manual.
If terminating the censorship by the left on Twitter is just a tactic, it’s a poor one. (and yes, that ran through my mind too, for exactly the same reasons). It’s poor because now the Truth platform has a buddy in pushing back on the censorship is needed to keep people ‘safe’ narrative, which was really the only figleaf used to get to where we are today in the co-opting of corporates to achieve the end of big statists. The irony being, that the last successful co-opting of corporates to achieve the end of big statists were the national socialists and the one before that was the british east india company.
Not quite, although this is a common lefty claim. He made his fortune building and selling PayPal along with Peter T. Chasing subsidies came much later. Agree it’s not so good however he doesn’t claim to be conservative and it’s naive to think it’s not become standard business practice for corporations to do this unfortunately.
I’m not disagreeing as such, though turning your share of PayPal sale into an estimated 260Billion is pretty impressive stuff, I’m merely reflecting that with his existing Government connections, let alone a satellite internet system, his opportunities for further subsidy have increased.
