Elon Takes Control Of Twitter
Twitter Files Prequel Episode: What happens when the world’s richest man acquires the most popular social media network…should be fine, right? More from John Handem Piette. Shout-out to Luke Rudkowski who discovered and promoted this cleverly done and imaginative video.
Meanwhile, Musk is polling Twitter users on whether he should step down as CEO of the company, and promises he will abide by the wishes of the majority. So far, that majority wants him to step aside as CEO. As of late Sunday night, the voting was running about 54 to 46, with 54 percent saying he should step down and 46 percent wanting him to remain.
The Quartering, which has gained more than 100,000 new YouTube followers since devoting daily coverage to The Twitter Files, hopes Musk remains, but also believes Musk is fully prepared to step aside and might have been intending to do so anyway.
After all, he will remain owner so he can chose a CEO who follows the principles he has pushed forward — more fairness and more advocacy of free speech as opposed to the rank censorship that previously defined Twitter’s existence. Besides, Musk probably does not have the time to remain as CEO. He has a bundle of other companies he owns and must manage so they don’t go astray, notably Tesla, but also Space X, Neuralink and others.
And truth be told, he can use this poll to pinpoint more of the phony leftist bots that have been ruining Twitter for the last few years. Now that’s smart!
One aspect to bear in mind when pondering The Twitter Files. These instances of censorship and blacklisting represent only the tip of the iceberg.
The sad fact is that pretty much every Silicon Valley business has followed the same trajectory as Twitter. Under the thumb of the FBI and CIA, they have been working to stamp out and shut down conservatives, using all manner of shadowbanning and blatant censorship.
Here, Dan Bongino surveys shocking examples of this bias involving Paypal, GoFundMe, Shopify, YouTube, Google and Amazon. The list certainly doesn’t stop there, as companies like Apple and Meta (formerly Facebook) have demonstrated they are also under the thumb of the leftists.
The solution? We must continue to expose the imbalances within these outfits in an effort to force them to treat everyone more equitably. The best way to accomplish that? Form alternative, legitimate companies that espouse conservative views, embracing free speech, religious principles and old-fashioned family values.
