Why do I care about Truth Social?  I'm sure if they knew Musk was going to buy into Twitter they never would have launched it.  Who cares?  Regardless, Musk is now on the board of directors of Twitter, and look for him to increase his share over time.  You people can't stand free speech huh?  No more censoring stories detrimental to Democrats during elections times, like the way the Hunter Biden story was censored.

cause your boy is Trump... you're a Trumper - that's why you care about (yet another failed Trump business venture) TRUTH Social.

ya ya, Musk will shortly be on the Twitter board (now currently at 11... Musk will make it 12). By declaration, while on the board, Much can't own more than 14% of the Twitter shares. Your claims about twitter bias... that it censors Conservative positions/statements... is just the sour grapes of far-right nutters who have been rightly censored... and finally punted for their insanely misinforming, and/or hateful and/or racist statements/claims. Twitter certainly doesn't censor 'normal' Conservative people/positions - or perhaps you can showcase some of your claimed twitter bias against Conservatives - sure you can! We could have some fun here, hey!

Elon Musk is a thin-skinned weirdo who has used his wealth to shut down critics and is known for firing anyone who disagrees with him or points out the horrible safety record of his plants and "driverless" cars. The idea that this demented manchild cares about free speech is so absurd only the loser Musk fanboys would believe it.

Man, you were doing so well posting actual substance, until now.  This diatribe is about as useless as a screen door on a submarine.  It's funny that Elon Musk triggers you so badly.

There's already rumors that Musk will un-suspend The Babylon Bee's account.  They were suspended on Twitter for posting satire.

Musk is being lobbied to make 2 significant changes.

1.  End politically motivated algorithms.
2.  Users must register and tweet using their real names, to help end abuse.

Musk isn't a majority controlling shareholder... and so long as he stays on the board, will never be - so your fevered aspirations are moot! As for your nattering over politically motivated algorithms... which you've already identified as "censoring Conservatives"... try this on for size, hey: Twitter algorithms amplify conservative content more than that of the political left, researchers find

Quote
Twitter researchers analyzed millions of 2020 tweets by elected officials in seven countries — Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Britain and United States — as well as posts that linked to political content from news outlets. Researchers relied on outside experts to determine what was right- or left-leaning rather than deciding for themselves.

“Our results reveal a remarkably consistent trend: In 6 out of 7 countries studied, the mainstream political right enjoys higher algorithmic amplification than the mainstream political left,” the researchers wrote in a 27-page report.

Sorry but "thin-skinned weirdo" and "demented manchild" is hardly valid criticism.

Amplifying content doesn't address the imbalance of those who get suspended vs who doesn't.  Regardless, if you believe that these algorithms amplify conservative content, you should be in favour of eliminating them.  I think we have something we can agree on.

Musk leading EV tech revolution = darling of the left

Musk supporting free speech and truckers against mandatory vaccines = enemy of the left

He also recently donated $6 billion dollars to world hunger.  But supporting freedom of speech is a redline for leftists.

Nah we're not gullible marks who think a billionaire doing a tax avoidance scheme is something to praise. Dude could tweet that he cured cancer and you'd lap it up like a good stooge.

Pure speculation.  Regardless, what he's done for Ukraine, for EV research and development, EV battery research and development, and Space X research and development is immeasurable.
