Elon Musk Confirms Twitter’s Corrupted Censorship Program that He Inherited Targeted Conservatives
By Joe Hoft

Twitter was a great tool for sharing news quickly but it was damaged greatly by the previous management running the platform who were far-left radicals.
 
These individuals, like former CEO Jack Dorsey, participated in far-left activities like the violent protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

Twitter’s management began censoring conservatives before the 2016 Election and went full-blast anti-conservative after President Trump won the election.

Although President Trump became arguably the greatest Twitter user in history, the company de-platformed him and numerous other conservatives by early 2021.  The President and most conservative platforms were eliminated from Twitter for good until Musk recently took over.

None what-so-ever.
But it is nice to have someone the MSM just can't argue with say so.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Since we now know that Twitter was in close contact with the White House and the FBI, it is interesting to imagine what kind of information Elon has on corruption of various government agencies and what he will do with it. Twitter was "in the loop" or possibly was the loop linking government to CNN/MSNBC and dozens of media outlets all taking orders from their controllers in D.C. Now Elon has access to all their marching orders, at least as much as the employees did not delete before they were locked out and fired. Now we know why Elon kicked everyone out and locked the doors.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

I CAN'T be the only one wondering if he is going to announce he will be a candidate for the office of President of the US when the next election season starts to warm up.

I have never been on Twitter, I long ago canceled my Facebook account, nor am I on TikTok or Truth Social

But watching the left freak out because Elon Musk is going to have a wider free speech platform speaks volumes about them
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

While he would not be the first African to be in the White House, he was born in Praetoria, South Africa, and would not be considered a natural born citizen. I bet he even has a real birth certificate (unlike that Kenyan).

Does Mr. Musk have an email address or other address at twitter (I've never used it)?

If so, I suggest you send him a brief personal note/email requesting it.
You might receive a surprise...

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/news/elon-musk-says-he-s-granting-amnesty-for-nearly-all-banned-twitter-accounts/ar-AA14then

Twitter owner Elon Musk on Thursday said he is granting “amnesty” for almost all banned accounts on the platform, a consequential policy change that follows a poll of the billionaire’s followers and comes just days after he reinstated former President Donald Trump's account after conducting a similar survey.

Musk’s unscientific poll attracted more than 3.1 million votes, with 72.4% in favor of widespread reinstatement.

On Saturday, Musk reinstated Trump minutes after a poll closed asking whether the former president's ban should be lifted, with 51.8% of more than 15 million votes cast in favor of allowing Trump back.

Twitter has unbanned numerous suspended accounts since Musk took over the platform last month—including profiles for rapper Kanye West, firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and the conservative satirical website the Babylon Bee—but hard-right activists are pushing for much broader reinstatements, including for accounts banned for hate speech or sharing misinformation.

I'm all for keeping things civil,but "hate speech" has been anything the Left doesn't agree with, lately.

and recall some of what MSN considered "misinformation":

Masks are useless.

Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin (with macrolide antibiotics and zinc) work.

The jabs don't.

The 2016 election was stolen.

etc.
