Strange how "freedom of speech" suddenly depends on these new platforms. 20 years ago they didn't even exist, yet I don't remember people claiming we didn't have freedom of speech then.
Either way, I don't think these platforms (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc) should be allowed to exist, at least not in their current form. Things seemed to work better before they were allowed to drive public decay.
Is Elon Musk the solution? Very doubtful. He is not very specific on what he wants to do "better".
Free speech absolutist? Does that mean he will allow Islamic State and Russia to freely spread their propaganda on Twitter? I am sure that will be interesting...
