Musk On Twitter: Conservative Unregulated Chats
Elon Musk's plan is to run Twitter off the top of his head | The Verge |
Mostly, though, employees told me that the conversation had reinforced the beliefs they had about Musk heading into the meeting. If I were to make a word cloud of employee responses, some bigger ones would be: incoherent; rambling; uninspiring.
Democrats are boring and should be banned.
Elon Musk Answers The Question, Why He Chose Twitter
Elon Musk had a thought provoking question about one of the hottest social media apps in the world, and even of the one he is purchasing.
"Is TikTok destroying civilization? Some people think so," he said in a tweet.
He went on to explain why he chose to purchase Twitter and not TikTok or another platform.
This week he had an "all hands" call with thousands of the company's employees and the call was leaked to Project Veritas.
"I think it's essential to have free speech," he said.
An advocate of more fake news and conspiracies.
Employees asked him what that meant for tweets about animal abuse, sexual content, and generally hateful or offensive messages.
"I think there's also, there's freedom of speech and freedom of reach, so I think people should be allowed to say...pretty outrageous things that are within the balance, the law, but, but then they don't, you know, get amplified."
His political views may be moderate, but this week he voted for a Republican for what he said was the first time.
"I voted for Mayra Flores - first time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022," he said.
The American Dream evolves to the American Election Scam.

The New National Congressional Map Is Biased Toward Republicans | FiveThirtyEight |
The case with the biggest potential repercussions is a federal lawsuit brought by Republicans in North Carolina that makes a radical argument: that only state legislatures, not state courts, have the power to draw new congressional districts. The Supreme Court will will decide in Moore v. Harper whether to take the case, and if they decide to embrace its argument to the fullest, every congressional map not enacted by a legislature could be invalidated. This would mean not only throwing out court-ordered maps in Connecticut, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, but potentially also commission-drawn maps in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey and Washington. In other words, the 2020s could see a historic amount of mid-decade redistricting.
