Well, that was sudden.
Elon Musk grabbed global attention after abruptly becoming the largest shareholder in Twitter, which will naturally endow him with more voting power than numerous other shareholders, not to mention a heck of a lot more power than standard Twitter users.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the Tesla CEO purchased a 9.2 percent state in Twitter, stunning the world and frightening all the leftists who flee at the first sign of accountability.
On top of controlling a large stake in Twitter, Musk will also now sit on Twitter’s board, as announced by Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, naturally, on Twitter.
“I’m excited to share that we’re appointing [Elon Musk] to our board!” Agrawal tweeted.
“He’s both a passionate believer and intense critic of the service which is exactly what we need on @Twitter, and in the boardroom, to make us stronger in the long-term. Welcome Elon!”
Musk, now the largest shareholder in Twitter, has set off alarm bells amongst the militant left, including with CNN business writer Clare Duffy, who is apparently fearful that Elon Musk may, you know, dare to hold Twitter accountable in terms of free speech.
“Elon has criticized Twitter for not allowing free enough speech. And so I think the big question will be whether he’ll try to, you know, get Twitter to change its content moderation policies. He also suggested that maybe Twitter should make its algorithm open source so that people know how it works,” Duffy fretted.
Gee, imagine that. Having Twitter possibly respect the First Amendment?
Where in the world did such a radical idea come from?
Duffy also had to blast Musk for “talking a big game,” as if CNN is the bastion of integrity and accuracy.
“So I think those are some of the changes we could potentially see, but, you know, Elon always also talks a big game,” Duffy continued, before admitting, “he [also] knew what he was doing when he was sending out those tweets. And so, you know, it does suggest that he’s gonna try to shake things up at Twitter.”
Per CNN left wing correspondent Brian Stelter
“There’s interest in billionaires, there’s celebration of the Musk. There’s also fear, I think, sometimes or wariness of- okay, so here’s the richest man on the planet who just bought a big chunk of one of our most important communications tools,” Stelter declared.
Haha. The fear that individuals such as Stelter himself may face the same censorship that they’ve wantonly levied against conservatives.
Even more humorously, the CNN commentator appeared most terrified of Musk having power.
As if the media didn’t already have way too much power itself, oftentimes used for leftist causes.
And Hunter Biden coverups.
“He’s also one of the biggest owners of satellites in the world. So he’s incredibly powerful, incredibly, I don’t know, am I allowed to use the word strange when talking about Elon Musk?” Stetler continued, ranting and raving.
On his part, Musk did effectively nothing to assuage critics’ concerns; if anything, he seemed to revel in them, much to the glee of long silenced conservatives.
“Looking forward to working with Parag & Twitter board to make significant improvements to Twitter in coming months!” Musk proclaimed.
