Elon Musk often grabs headlines with his Twitter posts, and rarely more so than on Tuesday, when he confirmed he’d bought a 9.2 percent stake in the social media company. He’s now the largest single shareholder and has earned a seat on the board. Mr Musk has not disclosed his agenda for the company, but for now we see this as a hopeful moment for political speech and debate at America’s increasingly censorship tech giants.
“I look forward to the cooperation [Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal] & Twitter Board to make significant improvements to Twitter over the coming months,” Mr. Musk tweeted Tuesday to his more than 80 million followers on the site. The co-founder of companies ranging from Tesla to SpaceX to the Boring Company has frequently expressed his disdain for Twitter’s brutal censorship, which the company uses to silence prominent voices (e.g. Donald Trump). bring and suppress views that disagree with the prevailing progressive consensus.
