Elon Musk explains what he meant by free speech for Twitter: ‘If people want…’

A day after advocating free speech on Twitter that Elon Musk has now bought following a $44 billion deal

He explained what he meant by 'free speech', as his earlier proclamation left Twitter users high and dry as they did not understand what Musk actually meant by free speech on Twitter.

In a clarification tweet, Elon Musk said by free speech, he meant that which matches the law.

"I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law, he said hinting that his earlier tweets on free speech led to 'extreme antibody reaction' from those who fear free speech.

"If people want less free speech, they will ask the governments to pass laws to that effect.

Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people," he said.
