Meanwhile, in ‘Free Speech’ Twitter Utopia

Dan Moren, on our mutual friend Lex Friedman having his Twitter account suspended:

My pal @lexfri quit Twitter a few days ago. His account has now
been suspended — I can only imagine that’s a result of his
parting tweet, which contained some choice words about Elon Musk
and Donald Trump.

So I guess we see exactly how much Elon cares about free speech.

Friedman’s tweet that prompted the suspension, in its entirety:

My final tweet is: Fuck @elonmusk and fuck @realDonaldTrump.

That’s it. That’s the tweet. No additional drama or backstory. And as I type this, Friedman’s account remains suspended.

Meanwhile, Musk is running another yes/no Twitter poll:

Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts,
provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in
egregious spam?

You couldn’t make up this clown show if you tried.
