So far, Musk has shown a willingness to bow down to authoritarian censors. The latest is yet another example of that. Just as the Turkish election was about to take place, the government demanded that Twitter censor content critical of authoritarian strongman, gollum-lookalike, and world’s most thin skinned leader, Recep Erdogan. And Elon caved.

    Musk has learned that free speech absolutism doesn’t help him to grow richer.

      But he has perhaps learned how to dupe a certain portion of gullible people by promising free speech absolutism.

        Yeah, and he must maintain good relationships with politicians. Musk wants to transform Twitter into a AI company enabling him to offer more ‘services’ before elections as we have seen in Turkey.
