I will try to say something positive about Elon Musk’s Twitter.
If he has done nothing else, Elon Musk has at least succeeded in tearing off the veil on how Big Tech censorship worked at Twitter and has brought those responsible for it into the sunlight.
1. Jonathan Greenblatt and the ADL are leading a coalition of progressive activist groups who are pressuring corporate advertisers to cut ties with Twitter to starve the platform of revenue. Financial blackmail is how they succeeded in imposing the censorship on Twitter in the first place.
2. As a “trusted flagger,” the ADL’s Center for Tech & Society has been directly censoring and banning Twitter accounts for years. It opened in late 2017.
3. Twitter was infested with activist employees like Yoel Roth who were committed to censorship and who are currently pressuring Apple and Google to deplatform Twitter from their app stores. Twitter engineers rigged the platform to deboost and suppress rightwing speech.
4. Finally, the Twitter rules were changed to empower armies of GoodWhite SJWs who have no lives and who volunteer as hall monitors and spend all their time tracking and reporting accounts to censor rightwing accounts and speech on the platform. A classic example of this is some loser named Reggie who lives in Nottingham, England who stalks my wife on the platform and reports her accounts.
