The great Musk meltdown

“There’s little doubt that Musk’s first tweet following the news of his successful bid has only enraged his detractors all the more. ‘I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter,’ he wrote, ‘because that is what free speech means.’ Musk is stubbornly refusing to dive into the squalid pit that his critics have dug for themselves, and from which they are frantically slinging mud that inevitably falls back on to their own heads. The moral high ground is far more satisfying. … For a long time, woke activists have been intoning the mantra that ‘Twitter is a private company and can do what it likes,’ safe in the knowledge that the ideological bent of Silicon Valley conveniently aligns with their own. Few of them are saying that following yesterday’s news.” (04/26/22)
