The Woke PANIC: DEMAND Big Tech Reform After The Tables Get Turned On Them
The woke are in a complete panic and now that the tables have been turned on them they are demanding big tech reform.
It is amazing how fast the left flips the script and acts like petulant children when things don’t go their way.
Elon Musk has put in an offer to purchase Twitter and make it a private company in hopes of reforming the social media giant.
Elon Musk is offering to buy Twitter for $43 billion, saying the social media platform he has criticized for not living up to free speech principles needs to be transformed as a private company. https://t.co/v1Ys2PoQH4

Musk has offered to pay over $54 for each share of the company which is considered a fair offer. Well, that sent the entire left-wing world into a tailspin.
Twitter is too important to be owned and controlled by a single person. The opposite should be happening. Twitter should be decentralized as a protocol that powers an ecosystem of communication products and services.

Today on Twitter feels like the last evening in a Berlin nightclub at the twilight of Weimar Germany.

I am frightened by the impact on society and politics if Elon Musk acquires Twitter. He seems to believe that on social media anything goes. For democracy to survive, we need more content moderation, not less.

The gnashing of teeth is hilarious.
Below was a post from a senior Twitter employee who later deleted it because Elon may be his boss.
The post below sums up the chaos:
Lib: Don’t like twitter censoring free speech?
Lib: Twitter is a private company
Lib: So make your own Twitter
Elon: No. I’ll buy this one
Lib: YOU CANT DO THAT
Elon: Just did
Lib: PANIC *hyperventilates*
Elon: Twitter is now *my* private company

Who knows how the saga between Twitter and Elon plays out but what is interesting is the sudden demand from leftists for section 230 reform after Musk threatens to take their propaganda cash cow away.
What Elon Musk’s takeover attempt of twitter shows is that we need common carriage rules on public speech platforms of a certain size. The inability to port traditional libel laws to the internet because of Section 230 has induced this weird oligarchs for free speech frame.

If Elon does buy twitter – I hope y’all have the same energy to get rid of Section 230 of the CDA so Elon becomes personally responsible for the damage that he creates.
If we’re going to fuck it up – might as well go the distance.

There were also reports that the cast of Morning Joe on MSNBC was screaming for Big Tech reform at the thought of Elon buying Twitter.
Suddenly Morning Sloppy Joe wants Section 230 reform! 🤣🤣🤣

Should Musk actually purchase Twitter (or he drives it into the ground because they reject his offer) liberals should remember what they told conservatives.
“Twitter is a private company, if you don’t like it build your own.”
