The European Union and the United Nations have condemned it Elon Musk’s decision to suspend the work of dozens of journalists on Twitter. When Musk took over the company, he had vowed to run Twitter as a “freedom of speech.” Faced with a torrent of criticism, he turns around and announces that he will reinstate their arrival.
He had disqualified these journalists because they reported the expulsion of a 20-year-old student who had been tracking his movements on his private jet. He said it put him and his family at risk. But then, why are journalists who simply covered the news without giving details of the location of his plane banned?
Since he took over Twitter, he’s been working hard there according to the mood of his new boss. Its management of the social network since its $44 billion acquisition last October has been chaotic: series of resignations and dismissals and scrapping of rules around the platform’s content. Decisions that scared advertisers. To reduce Twitter’s operating costs, whose revenue is declining, the company no longer pays rent for its San Francisco headquarters and offices around the world.
