And he didn’t even need to up his bid!
Noooooo freedom is destroyed! How will my opinions be heard if I can't actively suppress those who do not conform to my reality!? Ahhhhhh!
Sorry libs, but this is the equivalent of the Berlin Wall coming DOWN, not going up. Long live #1A.
Watershed moment for the free exchange of ideas? One can hope.
I'll believe it when it's final. There are far too many powerful entities that DO NOT want what's going on at Twitter to become common knowledge.
DONE DEAL. Bubbye censorship. Condolences to....
The New York Times and its ilk
The alphabet networks
Etc. (We all know who they are.)
Welcome back to:
The Babylon Bee
Marjorie Taylor Greene
ALL OF THEM have a right to speak in the public square. Is what they say true? YOU decide--not some libtoon geeks at Twitter.
I can hear all the leftist demons screeching even through the silence.
More importantly I just made 12 dollars on my two shares of $TWTR! :-)
I'm drowning in salty tears! I was suspended for a Benjamin Franklin reference about criminals connected to the Russia Collusion Hoax. Was suspended (again) and sent appeal after appeal and taunted the Woke Church almost daily writing in the appeal, "Elon is Coming!"
You can't imagine the frothing and gnashing of teeth going on right now on Twitter. They are talking sadly about the end of censorship and all manner of buffoonery.
Just deleted the tweet last week as I knew this day was coming. It's truly epic.
This is such an American moment.
I want to celebrate, that is my initial reaction. However, I remain skeptical until I see Alex back on Twitter. True freedom of speech would see the return of Donald Trump.
Welcome back Alex!
I am still banned for stating plastic surgery and hormones doesn't make the gender one is born with a different gender. "They" called it "hate speach". THEY are the hateful ones and I hope THEY all get fired.
This is great! But, isn't most of Twitter's data supported by Google and AWS? So is anyone else worried AWS, Apple and Google will team up to de-platform Twitter just as they did to Parlor? Maybe the long game of those in power is to cash out in the sale and then collectively tank the app and relaunch something like Twatter that they would again control. Thus leaving Musk with a $44 billion nothing burger.
Now... will he put his money where his mouth is? I think he will. I think he will face massive forces against him, but this guy is nothing if not a survivor who decides what he wants and then gets it!
Wow, I bet the safe spaces at Twitter HQ are standing room only.
If he drops all bans and I think more importantly, shadow bans and other covert methods of suppressing one side of all issues, then a truly great thing will have happened.
When people learn what has been kept from them, there should be anger. And that anger has consequences. But the consequences grow in proportion to the degree that they have been deceived, as well as the degree of the consequences of what is hidden from them. The experimental mRNA gene therapy being the most obvious example in this context, but there is clearly a lot more.
So there may be a storm. But if there is, it needs to happen for a better world.
Let the discourse begin!!
Remove all Shadow Bans!
Am I the only one who feels like Empire Strikes Back has finally ended, and Return of the Jedi has started?
Watch out, he wants to "authenticate" users. Some sort of digital ID, maybe? Just speculating. I don't trust gazillionairs.....
Hooray! I hope we're not disappointed. It sounds like the greatest news.
Ecstatic… Now let’s do our part to improve Twitter. Free exchange of ideas great, but make them responsible, educational and let’s do our part to cut down on the petty bullshit and make this the best platform we can make it.
Twitter should allow all speech that is legal. There should be no censoring beyond that.
Apparently Andy Ngo is collecting the best of the meltdowns. A vindicating day for that man. Worth checking out.
I feel like a pressure valve has just been opened in America. Thank God.
I will join the minute you are back!
Yeah baby!! Love it! Almost makes me want to buy a Tesla to honor Elon! but not quite.
Today has a 11/8/2016 vibe to it, more specifically, the early hours of 11/9/2016.
Given the state of most of the media and the incredible leverage that Obama puppets (Zuck, Sergie, Jeff, etc) have over our society, it will be amazing if open conversations in the "town square" will speak out now. Imagine elections that are based on actual truth. What a concept.
this is amazing. I love it when the left gets hysterical. I can't wait to see them cry when someone tells them to "go jump in a lake" or "take a long walk on a short pier" and get suspended for encouraging suicide. for real
Now we will see about how much Musk is gonna deliver on his promises.
Taking bets for who will be first in the group of those banned that are let back on the site.............
So, readers here actually live in The Marvel Universe (TM)? Y'all believe in Super Heroes, happy endings outside of massage parlours and ready tissue wads? 🤔 Lemme hold this in the Light fer a sec... hmmm. Billionaire, who hangs with errrr, Billionaires, believes in the Great Reset inevitability, is nads deep in Tech/Deep State/Silcone Valley/Singularity issues. Buys "Town Square". Buys it with spare change. Peasants think it's to save THEM? What do HIS Difference Engines say, one wonders? I'm in Sydney Australia. Have I got a Bridge for sale or WHAT?!? 🤗
I hope what happens is honest, open, intelligent and civil debate about the ongoing issues of truly great importance to Americans. And I hope that sends very clear directives to our government leadership they can’t ignore.
I predict the Left ramps up its attack on capitalism. How can we allow a person to get so rich that he threatens our control of the narrative?
Omg. Hope is alive.
I can't wait for the 'triggered' memes. Glorious days ahead.
Watch the Establishment go nuclear on Musk. Tax investigation, mud slinging dirt digging articles in wapo etc. We could wager bets on what they come up with...
Restore All Suspended Accounts!
Welcome back. Hopefully you'll become a feature on TV
As our british friends would say....its squeeky bum time in the executive management offices . Of course all those stock options may ease their pain. New sheriff in town and the twitterverse aint having it. Ballzy move by EM. 1A forever....
Wow! Now he need to put a bid for the WH, and we'll be all good.
Joke aside, I suspect a lot of people working there, we'll have to go home. I think they will try to jeopardize the mission, which seems impossible - make speech free again.
Another note- Elon saves the world in an unexpected way...
ON THE DE-SWAMPING OF TWITTER
There is already an Internet Disinformation and Misinformation Prevention Act. It's called the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Illegal speech is defined by state law, not by private corporations. And there you have it.
I have been so depressed at the left media's strangehold on truth...This is a beacon of hope that the totalitarians may not win!
Wondering if the FCC is scrambling on possible was to throttle the bird?
Taking a wait and see attitude to what this ultimately means for freedom of speech. Not sure.
Upon hearing this news, I’m cautiously optimistic about the upcoming mid-term election not being stolen.
