Just a few days ago, Musk walked into Twitter HQ carrying a sink! This was the entrance if there was one. Over 1.1 million likes and 40 million views make it his biggest tweet yet. The sink has hit Twitter.
As Musk’s first move, he fired the company’s top executives. Elon Musk took over Twitter and sacked the CEO, the CFO, and the head of legal policy, trust, and safety. Vijaya Gadde, head of legal policy, trust and safety, who made the decision to permanently suspend Trump, was fired by Musk.

Is what we think true? All those banned by Twitter’s overzealous censorship strategy will be reinstated.
Will we finally get to hear conservative voices like the real Donald Trump and Alex Jones? It’d be great to see that. Can we have an open town hall where people can share ideas without fear of self-censorship, without fear of bots reporting your tweet, and without fear that others won’t like what you say? The social media platform of choice may soon become free.
Musk has also recently said that: “A beautiful thing about Twitter is how it empowers citizen journalism – people are able to disseminate news without an establishment bias.”

In a letter, he said that he acquired Twitter because he felt it was essential for the future of our civilization to have a common digital square where beliefs can be debated openly and honestly. Otherwise, social media risks splintering into far left and far right echo chambers.
He also warned Twitter can’t become a “free-for-all hellscape” where anything can be said without consequences. In addition to adhering to the law, the platform should be friendly and welcoming.
I’m very hopeful, aren’t you? Time will tell, as always.
As Bloomberg and the Times of India reported this morning, Musk wants to do away with permanent life bans because he doesn’t believe in lifelong prohibitions.
According to them, Musk doesn’t believe in lifelong bans on users. Those booted off the platform may be able to return if they want. The former president has said in the past he wouldn’t return to Twitter. However, as this story unfolds, he might even change his mind since it’s one of the biggest platforms for him.
On the reactions so far this morning:
🚨 BREAKING: Elon Musk is going to take the CEO role at Twitter and he will be reversing lifetime bans on users.
This is VERY good news for #FreedomOfSpeech!https://t.co/KFjWadHL3b

This is huge.
Elon Musk has officially taken over Twitter.
The first thing he did was fire the CEO Parag Agrawal and the head of Trust and Safety responsible for censorship at Twitter.
Reports are at least one executive was ESCORTED out of the building.

Many people wonder whether they will get their old accounts back such as TruthTalk.UK’s very own Karen Hunt.

How about Dr Peter McCullough, Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Kat Lindley for starters? Who would you like to see again? How about Tommy Robinson that would really annoy some wont it?
