“The ultimate aim of Musk’s 73.5 million share purchase worth $2.9 billion, based on the closing price Friday, is not clear. Yet in recent weeks Musk, who has 80 million Twitter followers and posts there often, has questioned free speech on Twitter and whether the platform is undermining democracy.” Elon Musk just became Twitter’s largest shareholder. The second I saw this news, I became an ex-shareholder of Twitter. The problem with a society dependent on the kindness of billionaires is that some of them are complete a-holes. Musk, who is ferociously wrongheaded when it comes to free speech and sees himself as the victim of a system in which he is thriving more than just about any other human, just went full oligarch on Twitter. This is worrisome.
