Musk Parodies Paul Revere on Twitter in 1775

Musk Parodies Paul Revere on Twitter in 1775

If the American Revolution had happened in the age of Twitter, Paul Revere's entreaty "The British are coming! The British are coming!" would most likely have been washed out with an admonishment from the social media platform along the lines, "British taxes are beneficial for society."

This was billionaire Elon Musk's latest jab at Twitter, delivered Monday.

"Yeah, they're going way too far in squashing dissenting opinions," Musk said of the platform, the New York Post reports.

Following the January 6, 2020 attack on the U.S. Capitol, Twitter permanently banned former President Donald Trump. The platform also liberally places "fact check" labels on posts about conservative positions, the 2020 presidential election, the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines and other issues divisive in 2022.

"Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate," Musk tweeted, referring to Twitter banning the New York Post's story about Hunter Biden's laptop on the eve of the 2020 presidential election.

The laptop contained incriminating evidence on how Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, traded on his political connections and access to his father to obtain six-figure positions and board directorships.

Musk's $44 billion acquisition of Twitter is still awaiting a vote by the shareholders. The board approved Musk's offer of $54.20 per share on June 21.
