📣 Elon Musk’s ‘Free Speech’ Hellscape


Ever since billionaire Elon Musk took the reins of Twitter for a staggering $44 billion in October 2022, Twitter has transformed into a hub of chaos. It seems every week the platform makes headlines—whether its for the appointment of a new CEO, the launch of Twitter Blue, or the change in the meaning of a blue check mark.

This week, the focal point of Twitter discourse is free speech. Musk portrays himself as a staunch advocate of this fundamental right—but it seems he’s just looking for a place to spew controversial takes and borderline conspiracy theories, all the while paradoxically kneeling to the demands of the Turkish government to silence political dissidents. 

Brace yourself for a ride as turbulent as a SpaceX launch as we explore the current Twitter landscape… or should I say, hellscape.
