Elon Shopping for Twitter Is not Essentially Celebration Over, However I might Like An Afterparty Invite

Posted on

creation-of-elon-muskWealthy individuals purchase crap and lawsuits occur — it’s recognized. What stays unknown is that this: what’s gonna occur to Authorized Twitter, or fairly, the place do the cool children go as soon as a billionaire buys the platform? Trigger based mostly on ol’ boy’s latest ideas on censorship and the individuals enthusiastic about this takeover, I’m anticipating wayyy extra slurring and hate speech on the fowl app as soon as that verify clears and he takes it personal.

Exhibit A:

Regardless of like, you understand…

And Exhibit B:

Gotta throw that good lil “either side + free love” in there so issues don’t come again to chew you.

To not point out the individuals supporting Musk’s “bringing freedom again” have had some unusual bedfellows.

This spin is after all coming from the man who gave the professor who has her personal archive of ATL articles as a result of she’s so ceaselessly racist air time.

When you consider {that a} bunch of the fandom is hoping that Musk reinstates Trumpet’s Twitter, it actually leaves me with one query:

I carry this up as a result of there is just one factor content material creators worry greater than the wildly fluctuating passions of their mob following — and that’s content material pointers. I personally surprise what’s going to occur when say, the following state decides to go an SB8 clone. Will @ATLblog get canceled for its far-alt-hyper-left bias for saying that it is a stare decisis difficulty (which it’s)? Dunk on the eighth Circuit and get shadow banned? Name me suspicious however I simply get the sensation that Elon’s takeover is gonna go extra “damaged window on the automotive showcase” than “profitable iteration of the Hyperloop.” And I’m not alone — the EU of all entities appears to share the same sentiment. And given the infographic he so politely supplied, he’s extra prone to see a necessity for radical leftist censorship than like… the little issues people on the appropriate are as much as lately.

I’d think about that it’s difficult sufficient for LawProfBlawg to put up rage-inducing puns as is with out having to fret about Elon’s whims. That stated, we already arrange ATLblog on Mastodon — see you Authorized Tweeters there, perhaps?
