Twitter: Elon Musk Could Threaten Free Speech On Twitter – CNN

Earlier today, The twitter owner Elon Musk, has taken to his verified twitter account to show CNN’s view of free speech on twitter today.

CNN has said That Musk could threaten free speech on twitter by literally allowing people to speak freely.

 

In his response, Musk wrote;”There is no excuse for my lack of coasters” he said.

“The amount of pro psy ops on Twitter is ridiculous! At least with new Verified they will pay $8 for the privilege haha.

“Just a note to encourage people of different political or other views to engage in civil debate on Twitter.”

“Worst case, the other side has a slightly better understanding of your views.

Recall that earlier Wednesday Last week, Musk started a poll, asking Twitter users whether accounts that had “not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam” should be let back on the social media platform. Indicating that a yes or No answer will solve the problem.

More than 3.1m Twitter users responded to Mr Musk’s poll, with 72.4% of them voting “Yes”.

On Nov. 19, Musk restored the twitter account of former President Donald Trump, nearly two years after it had been permanently banned following the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol.

The move came shortly after Twitter restored the accounts of several other controversial, previously banned or suspended users, including conservative Canadian podcaster Jordan Peterson, right-leaning satire website Babylon Bee, comedian Kathy Griffin and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Trump has previously said he would remain on his own platform, Truth Social, instead of rejoining Twitter, and has yet to tweet since his account came back online.

But a change in his approach could hold major political implications as Trump has said he will seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.

In Musk’s response to the poll result, He said,”The people have spoken. Amnesty begins next week,” Mr Musk, who has 118.7m followers on the platform, later tweeted.

He also used a Latin phrase which translates to “the voice of the people is the voice of God”.
