Fans Urge Elon Musk To Buy Out Twitter In ‘Free Speech’ Debate

After an extremely interesting month on social media, Elon Musk has decided that he dislikes the platform and believes that they should be more open to all forms of discussion. It’s after he opened up a Twitter poll asking his followers if they think Twitter adheres to a rigorous standard of allowing free speech. As a result, ‘Buy Twitter’ is now trending.

Musk stated the following in a series of tweets:

Free Speech is essential to a functioning democracy. Do you believe Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle?”

Given that Twitter serves as the de factor public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy. What should be done? Is a new platform needed?”

His tweets have led to several Musk fans stating that he should buy Twitter and reinstate their ‘right to free speech’. Here’s a few selected tweets regarding the subject!

“Put your hand up if you think Elon Musk should buy Twitter. And reinstate all banned accounts.”- Avi Yemini

Was just about to type this too. Elon please buy out Twitter and make it amazing!”Adel

Important to note: Twitter isn’t a democracy. You don’t vote on Twitter or have rights, and free speech is not an excuse to not face consequences. As a social media giant, they’re not governed by democratic ideals. Musk could purchase Twitter, sure. But if he did that he’d have to fundamentally change the service in order to make it fight his ideal.
