Last week I made a bet that Elon wasn’t serious about buying Twitter. I lost, and I’m provisionally glad. Still not clear what he will do with his new toy. But: unlike all other billionaires, Elon is capable of occasionally doing the right thing. He protected his Tesla factory workers from muzzles and vaxes. Maybe this will be another rare good thing. Remains to be seen.
In any case, Greenwald has come up with the ULTIMATE riposte:
Corporate journalists deeply upset at the possibility of a mild return of free speech values to Twitter could always just build their own social media alternative that offers more censorship. Nothing is stopping them.
