Cartoon: Even freer speech

no image description available

Because of Elon Musk, Twitter has change into a take a look at case of what occurs whenever you put all of the worst issues about social media on one platform. In fact Facebook and Instagram have had their share of issues, however I simply can’t maintain from trying away when the world’s (previously) richest man destroys Twitter whereas concurrently touting himself as a free speech savior — all whereas ginning up the social media machine with right-wing racists, antisemites and conspiracy theorists.

The “Twitter Recordsdata” haven’t turned out to be stuffed with the earth-shattering revelations Musk promised. A tech firm wrestling with its content material moderation insurance policies is a lot extra boring than the promised authorities censorship that upended a democracy. In case you scratch the floor of the Hunter Biden “scandal,” at this level you don’t give you rather more than a tragic story of a vice chairman’s addicted son making an attempt to make some money.

What you do give you are some very fascinating relationships between Steve Bannon and a Chinese billionaire and Rudy Giuliani and a Russian agent. (Hey, I wasn’t going to convey up the Russia factor however Musk dug up all this previous information!)
