Greenwald: Corporate Journalists "Deeply Upset" By Reduced Censorship Could Just... Build Their Own Twitter.

Greg Roumeliotis


The deal could happen today.

Reports have suggested that Twitter will accept Elon Musk's $43 billion buyout offer later today.

According to Bloomberg, sources say that the social media company is in "the final stretch of negotiations" with Musk for a $43 billion sale. Twitter is apparently finalizing terms for the transaction, and that could be completed today should everything "go smoothly."

Could be kabuki by the board, pretending to accept the offer so they can bring up a problem at the 11th hour -- so they can show shareholders they seriously entertained the offer (so they don't get sued) while rejecting it.

These events follow Twitter putting together a "shareholders rights plan" in an effort to block Musk’s gargantuan offer.

lol, when he buys your shares you don't have them and so you have no rights. lol.

Boom i got your twitter

boom i got your censorship

boom i got your mind control

speaking of cartels...

Twitter will have records of all the collusion to have the same algorithms and the same speech control policies

boom i got your corporate records

The tears must flow:

@ButtonFranklin -3h

This is the end of normalcy in the US as we know it with election season approaching.

Corporate journalists deeply upset at the possibility of a mild return of free speech values to Twitter could always just build their own social media alternative that offers more censorship. Nothing is stopping them.

Wen @elonmusk owns Twitter, we will finally learn how sinister and politically motivated the shadow banning and algorithms were and how dangerous they were to our democracy.
