Commentary: Reagan Reed
The Texas Citizen Journal welcomes our new Twitter overlord, Elon Musk, and we look forward to the day when we can send tweets from an underground biosphere on Mars. I have long been a Musk fanboy, so this is a welcome development.
I applaud Musk’s statements in favor of free speech, and hope he is successful in this new endeavor. However, I honestly don’t expect too much to change. He is probably not going to do everything the right hopes or the left fears, and the jubilation of the former and the hysteria of the latter are both massively overblown.
Admitted, I am having a lot of fun watching woke leftist heads explode today as they storm off the platform, however, I will equally enjoy watching MAGA heads explode when Musk doesn’t do what they expect him too.
For example, I wouldn’t be surprised if Donald Trump’s account remains suspended. (On a related note, one of the most satisfying results of Musk’s acquisition of Twitter will be the complete implosion of the grift that is Truth Social.)
The most likely scenario is that Musk makes some minor changes, like adding an edit feature and increasing transparency. I truly do not understand the hysteria coming from certain quarters of the left. What’s the worst that’s going to happen? Musk will make what is already a godforsaken hell-site worse?
Either way, the Texas Citizen Journal will be along for the ride. You can follow along:
