Tesla CEO Elon Musk has supplied to purchase one hundred pc of Twitter at a closing buy worth of $41 billion.
Twitter is unlikely to just accept Musk’s supply. Twitter shareholder Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has since objected to the thought. But ought to Musk discover a approach, the blue-checkmark brigade may simply strike.
As Louder with Crowder dot com pointed out, the reactions from the woke as we speak are damaged into three classes:
The left as we speak:
1) If Musk buys Twitter, I’m leaving!
2) Free speech can solely survive with extra censorship
3) Please daddy authorities block this sale and save us

Because Twitter isn’t a humorous place, we make it a precedence to level out when it’s. Like as we speak.
Here are a few of the funniest responses to the concept Musk might purchase Twitter and permit free speech on the platform:
I’m frightened by the impression on society and politics if Elon Musk acquires Twitter. He appears to imagine that on social media something goes. For democracy to outlive, we’d like extra content material moderation, not much less.
— Max Boot 🇺🇦 (@MaxBoot) April 14, 2022
Got that? We will want extra “content moderation” for “democracy” to outlive. At least Mr. Boot has the Ukraine flag in his Twitter deal with. That means he’s not pro-Putin.
To the trolls:
I made a decision directing my tweet solely to Twitter’s CEO was an oversimplification, so I deleted it.
I stand by the underlying sentiment: Elon Musk’s tried takeover of Twitter is a menace to the free world.
I care about freedom — and, additionally, factual precision. pic.twitter.com/RnriZ7D4pj

Bet nobody buys that man’s e book. Who gave him a examine?
So far, this is likely to be the perfect tweet. Someone verified was dumb sufficient to match Musk making an attempt to purchase Twitter to the darkish historical past of Germany.
Today on Twitter feels just like the final night in a Berlin nightclub on the twilight of Weimar Germany.

To reply your query about whether or not Jarvis is a professor or a journalist: he’s a professor at The City University of New York. Nutjob.
Over on CNN+, Brian Stelter is panicking:
“Ratteling Silicon Valley.” Brian Stelter is seemingly panicked by Elon Musk’s supply to purchase Twitter. “The board of Twitter is in a very public fight with the richest man in the world.” pic.twitter.com/HJuqMaLoIV

Perhaps his fewer than 10,000 viewers agreed?
The USA Singers, which says it “stands against Fascism” in its bio, desires Twitter to delete Musk’s account for daring to purchase it:
Twitter ought to inform Elon Musk to go fuck himself, then delete his account.
That’s the way you cope with an uncontrolled narcissistic bully.
— The USA Singers (@TheUSASingers) April 14, 2022
Even the man at all times on MSNBC begging for a task on the bench weighed in:
Elon Musk gonna fuck round and get @jack Dorsey an Image award.
— Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC) April 14, 2022
If Musk had been to, one way or the other, buy Twitter, the offended pro-censor crowd could have to start out their very own Twitter, because the conservatives did with Parler, Gettr and Gab.
Imagine a Twitter different that’s much more woke than Twitter. It might occur. One that calls for you present proof of vaccination and publish your gender pronouns earlier than you make an account.
Elon Musk is the largest menace to large tech censorship. In reality, he is likely to be the one menace who can defeat it.
If you see any extra nice tweets, ship them our approach.
Thank you, Elon.
