Elon Musk Terms Twitter Suspension Of Major News Publication As 'incredibly Inappropriate'
“Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organisation for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate,” said Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday, April 26 lambasted microblogging platform Twitter for banning the news publication’s account that reported what he described as “a truthful story".
Musk stated that it was “incredibly inappropriate” for the social media platform to block the American based news site that published a story in 2020 about US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
“Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organisation for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate,” said Tesla CEO Elon Musk in a tweet.
Musk had responded to reporter Saagar Enjeti’s tweet, sharing a Politico article that cited how the social media company’s top lawyer “was in tears” when discussing Twitter’s new ownership.
Vijaya Gadde, the top censorship advocate at Twitter who famously gaslit the world on Joe Rogan’s podcast and censored the Hunter Biden laptop story, is very upset about the Elon Musk’s takeover,” Enjeti said.
The Republican National Committee accused Twitter of stifling the freedom of expression and cracking down on the news organisations.
Musk then responded saying that the platform had exploited power by blocking freedom of speech, citing a New York Post article that exposed thousands of emails detailing how the then-presidential candidate’s son used his political influence to strike offshore business dealings in China and Ukraine.
