Buying Twitter is Just the First Step in Elon Musk’s Master Plan… You’re Going to Love It

Elon Musk Causes Media Uproar, Cuts Off Censorship Tools From Employees

Elon Musks limits who can censor or ban individuals or sites.

Elon Musk wasn’t kidding when he said that he would make changes on how Twitter operates. On day one, he immediately fired four of the top executives. Then yesterday, someone banned the Arizona GOP candidate for Secretary of State in Arizona, Mark Finchem for no apparent reason other than to help out the Democratic candidate. Within one hour, Musk had Finchem back up and operating on Twitter. He must have realized the censorship tools had to be limited.

The mainstream press is boiling mad after Musk limited the number of people with access to the censorship tools. After all, if a story gets a lot of coverage on Twitter, they will eventually have to report on the story themselves instead of burying it like they did Hunter Biden’s laptop. Censoring conservative candidates in the last week before an election is number three in the liberal social media playbook. Ap0parently, Musk does not intend to allow that to happen.

Bloomberg reports that Elon Musk’s Twitter has frozen some employees’ access to the tools used to censor conservative posts or conservative sites. Evidently, a large number of employees formerly had the ability to silence conservative voices, all with the blessing of the upper-tier managers. This was allegedly in order to clamp down on misinformation. Misinformation according to Democrats is anything that does not conform to their radical ideology.

Via Bloomberg:

Most people who work in Twitter’s Trust and Safety organization are currently unable to alter or penalize accounts that break rules around misleading information, offensive posts and hate speech, except for the most high-impact violations that would involve real-world harm, according to people familiar with the matter. Those posts were prioritized for manual enforcement, they said.

People who were on call to enforce Twitter’s policies during Brazil’s presidential election did get access to the internal tools on Sunday, but in a limited capacity, according to two of the people. The company is still utilizing automated enforcement technology, and third-party contractors, according to one person, though the highest-profile violations are typically reviewed by Twitter employees.

Rolling Stone reporter Charisma Madarang wrote:

“The drastic change in content moderation could potentially affect Twitter’s Trust and Safety team’s ability to both monitor and enforce moderation policies ahead of the U.S. midterm election on Nov. 8.”

Time also picked up the narrative in an article titled, “Twitter Limits Content Moderation Tools Ahead of Midterm Elections.”

From Breitbart News

The concern that the social media company, which jettisoned “trust & safety” arch-censor Vijaya Gadde as well as CEO Parag Agrawal in some of Musk’s first moves, may not be able to effectively interfere in the midterms was echoed by Rolling Stone. 

To the media, it is now an expectation rather than a matter of controversy that social media platforms will ramp up censorship and interference ahead of an election.

Yoel Roth, a leftist holdover at Twitter who once decried Donald Trump as a “racist tangerine” and complained about “ACTUAL NAZIS IN THE WHITE HOUSE,” but who for now has the support of Musk, attempted to calm the media’s fears.

“This is exactly what we (or any company) should be doing in the midst of a corporate transition to reduce opportunities for insider risk. We’re still enforcing our rules at scale,” tweeted Roth, who currently leads Twitter’s “safety & integrity” team.

    My investigation into a DHS program that instructed law enforcement to treat Christians as terrorists won me the 2014 CJN Journalist of the Year award.

    As Larry The Cable Guy says, “I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there”! Just like other businesses, if you don’t like what the owner wants done, then leave.

    I missed the spaying and neutering party. Were there participation trophies handed out? How long does a bruised ego take to mend? Is this a form of boowhaaing ? Ya just gotta luv it.

  3. Bob Russell says:

    The satanic left absolutely HATES any kind of fairness because they know they can’t win with a fair, level playing field!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Bret says:

    This is what’s need to be done for liberty’s sake. Hope these liberal tools lose their job soon.

    • Deborah says:

      The need to go because now you will just have a bunch of little snits trying to undermine any way they can. They will never adapt to life without getting even.

    In the early days of the Nazis, they discriminated against the Jews as they had so much wealth through hard work over generations. Then they went after the guns and ammunition taking them as a way of disarming the people. The took over every media form they could and thwarted all dissent. Sound identical to what the progressive communist (nazi) Democrats are trying to do. And this left wing liberal communist in charge of the Safety and Integrity (oxymoronic) is still employed by Twitter????? Time for him to go too. CCP has him in their money pocket!

    LOL

    Apparently I am among the “nobody’s” Musk doesn’t give a damn about. As of 2:54 pm on 11/1/2022 I am STILL banned for the following tweet sent to @megynkelly after she had made a joke out of some woke piece of trash being denied something or other:

    Hello,

    Thank you for your patience as we reviewed your appeal request for account, @SurlyPoet, regarding the following:

    avatar
    Surly Poet
    @SurlyPoet
    @megynkelly Get woke, go broke, become a joke, have a stroke, get cremated and go up in smoke.
    Violating our rules against abusive behavior

    Our support team has determined that a violation did take place, and therefore we will not overturn our decision.

    You will not be able to access Twitter through your account due to violations of the Twitter Rules, specifically our rules around:
    In order to restore account functionality, you can resolve the violations by logging into your account and completing the on-screen instructions.

    Thanks,
    Twitter

    So, it appears since I am a nobody to Musk his employees have the continued right to deny me my constitutional rights to freedom of speech guaranteed under the 1st Amendment. Big surprise. The little guy gets screwed by the richest man in the world.

    Give him a few days for Pete’;s sake. There are Millions censored. I think it will take him some time to get rid of the triggered snits

    • Doug Litchfield says:

      They may need help getting down from the highchair unless of course they glued themselves to it.

  9. Robert says:

    I hope Musk doesn’t fall into the same trap that Trump did, thinking he could win over the leftists buried in the organization and left to metastasize. Anybody who thinks their ideological goals are more important than the philosophy of a free (and sometimes offensive) exchange of ideas needs to be ruthlessly rooted out and sent packing.

    Rolling Stone was caught in the huge Hammergate lie that involved Paul Pelosi and an Illegal alien gay escort. Thot it was funny when corporate media reported the escort moved from Canada over 20 years ago. So if he voted as an illegal alien isn’t that a crime? Would like to seem MORE ATTENTION GIVEN TO THAT ANGLE OF THE STORY.

  11. Ral says:

    well we the people have been censored big time. We have seen the results of the election being checked that showed that we had a Coup. Any where in the world they have a coup the united States is the first to call them out as Terrorist. Any where but the United States because the Democrats are the Domestic Terrorist that now run the Federal Govenment and the people better change that on election day november 2022 or you may be living under China rule. Democrats are tight with China and paid for by China
