Mr. Elon Musk,

Although your credentials are impressive, we unfortunately do not have an opening for you at this time because we already have a crazy, billionaire demagogue on staff.

The government itself was involved in suppressing / censoring news.  That is criminal.

Are we having fun yet ?  Seems that Elon has turned over thousands of internal documents to reporter Matt Taibbi.

I also heard comments by James Woods who has been repeatedly victimized by Twitter over the years and who has also successfully sued over issues regarding Twitter.  He has gone on the record stating that he intends to sue the DNC and adds the possibility of a class action lawsuit against the DNC, that if successful could effectively bankrupt the party and maybe even permanently cripple it or even better yet, kill it.  The DNC is everything it has accused everyone else of, including being completely a fascist organization as will soon be revealed.

Buckle up buttercups.

Okay, so first, if there is something actually criminal, is Matt Taibbi the correct channel?

Second, Woods suing the DNC.... where to start... (no I didn't read more than a couple of lines from the google search because of the sources)... Isn't Twitter private/ non government?  So what does that have to do with 1st amendment?  Aren't private companies free to do as they choose with their properties?  Twitter has recent banned Ye, after unbanning trump. which one of them get's to sue?  Likewise, the DNC (and RNC) are private organizations. 

Still, I've got my popcorn standing by. I'd love to see the DNC and/or the RNC dismantled, but I doubt James woods and Elon are the guys to do it.

Not really unless you meant "news stories." Real institutions (e.g., NYT) aren't quoting Twitter as their source - but do report on what's going on over there, which is fair.

Yet I'm glad, Elon Musk is bringing up free speech, and taking on corporate media censorship. The Twitter community is behind him on that in vast majorities. And the corporate media have been relying on Twitter for their so-called "news" all the time. Against all premonitions of Twitter going down by the media, users have grown substantially since he took over.

Now what?

Not sure what your're trying to get at, honestly. I said he raises some great points, and what I meant was in regards to free and open-source soft-, and hardware. These points are beyond anyone's liking or disliking of Elon Musk.
Anything else I didn't get?
