(PresidentialHill.com)- As a result of advertisers leaving the firm in response to pressure from activist groups with a left-leaning plan, Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, has reported a “huge reduction” in sales.
Musk agreed with a political commentator who claimed that efforts to satisfy the left were fruitless, and he condemned the attempts to deprive Twitter of ad money as an assault on free expression.
Activist groups’ pressure on advertisers is to blame for Twitter’s sharp decline in revenue, although content filtering has remained the same, and the company has done everything it could to appease the activists, according to Musk.
“Extremely messed up! They’re trying to destroy free speech in America.”
Political analyst Ian Miles Cheong responded to Musk by saying he should give up trying to appease left-wing demonstrators.
Regardless of what you do, the activists will stop at nothing to harm Twitter, so it’s time to stop pandering to them, Cheong advised.
You’re correct, Musk said.
In later tweets, Musk reaffirmed Twitter’s “100% unaltered” commitment to content control.
Contrary to what you may see in the press, hate speech has occasionally declined this week “below” our historical standards added Musk.
The new owner of Twitter also lauded the radical leftist Yoel Roth, who has been appointed head of content moderation, for emphasizing that “key moderation capabilities remain in place” and that “80% of incoming content moderation flow” has not been impacted by recent layoffs.
Leftist activists, including those advocating for Twitter advertising boycotts, have used the danger of state-backed misinformation, which even liberal experts concede had a negligible impact on the 2016 elections, to defend the presence of Big Tech’s extensive censorship infrastructure.
There is no proof that foreign meddling has played a significant role in any recent American election. On the other hand, the FBI, which has evolved into a politically partisan arm of the anti-Trump deep state, used the fictitious threat of foreign interference to pressure tech platforms to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020, which had a discernible influence on the outcome of that election.
