It’s sad and insane how much energy and lies and money ‘people’ are willing to expend to prevent Elon Musk from expanding free speech, democracy, and open commercial capitalism. It is a terrible state of affairs which every free American should oppose immediately and permanently. “People” who don’t believe in free speech, and therefore don’t want Musk to succeed, are pure E V I L
Musk is not trying to take over Twitter as a for profit business deal; it is specifically to change the world! If it fails for any reason, which is unlikely, he will either buy another social network or start one from scratch. Long.
The best part of this potential deal is that Musk wants free speech on Twitter to be broadcasted world over, circumventing Chinese and Russian censorship, and reaching their entire populations, by leveraging his satellite network!!!!

“He also said he would make Twitter transparent about its inner workings, open-sourcing the algorithm it uses to sort and amplify tweets so it’s no longer a “black box.””
“I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy.” -Musk
“Any changes to people’s tweets – if they’re emphasised or de-emphasised – that action should be made apparent, so anyone can see that that action has been taken so there’s no sort of behind-the-scenes manipulation, either algorithmically or manually.”
