SO NOW WHAT WILL TWITTER DO ABOUT DREADED, AWFUL AND VERY BAD HATE SPEECH?

Listen to Article

The poison pill didn’t work.  On 25 April, neo-libertarian futurist Elon Musk closed a 40-billion plus deal to take ownership of Twitter.

It has raised hopes that the platform might return to some semblance of permitting the sort of free speech rights that certainly should have a wide platform in a nation that birthed the Bill Of Rights.

Liberals decried the takeover, unsurprisingly.

I’m not currently on Twitter.  But if I was, and somebody asked me, “So what is Musk going to do about hate speech?”, I would probably reply:

“Good question. What is Musk going to do about your hatred for my speech?  What is he going to do about your hating it so much, that you would advocate canceling me, de-personing, etc., for speech you can’t otherwise rebut via open debate?”

    Musk certainly can do something good here, but the problem is no single man should have that much power.
