It is no secret that Elon Musk has purchased Twitter and immediately started suggesting improvements to one of the world’s largest social media platforms.
One of the topics was getting rid of censorship and narratives that don’t suit certain people. This was immediately attacked by the ‘democracy-loving’ left as barbarous, dangerous, out of the question.
Interesting. I wonder if those funding these organizations are fully aware of what the organizations are doing. https://t.co/YzVZIvF68E

According to the UK’s Daily Mail, there is a new plan to sabotage Musk’s purchase by scaring away Twitter’s advertisers. A group of 26 activist organizations and NGOs signed a letter to companies who advertise on Twitter, warning them to reconsider if Elon Musk makes changes.
Musk is asking who funded the plan: the answer being an assortment of ‘dark money groups’ like George Soros’s Open Society Foundation; NGOs founded by former Clinton and Obama administration staffers; wealthy Democrat donors and their family foundations; labor unions; and the governments of European nations.
Elon responded back on Twitter with this: “Who funds these organizations that want to control your access to information? Let’s investigate … Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
“However I should be clear that the right will probably be a little unhappy too,” Musk continued. “My goal is to maximize area under the curve of total human happiness, which means the ~80% of people in the middle.”
Once Elon gains controlling interest, he seeks to improve Twitter by getting rid of “bot” accounts which are linked to shady interest groups and foreign services that often change narratives & spread misinformation and don’t belong to a single live person.
He also vowed to make it easier to verify real users by giving them the ‘blue checkmark’ to show they are valid.
What’s most important is that Musk has vowed to make the platform ‘great again’ by getting rid of the blatant censorship of any content that runs bad “official” narratives, such as the U.S. and Western government blanket denials during the COVID-19 pandemic that the virus escaped from, or even could have escaped from, a lab in Wuhan, China.
