“New Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach.” -Elon Musk 11-18-22
Every now and then someone new comes around and claims to support free speech. I do my best to give you my analysis of the situation objectively. This is often difficult to do in my position as the CEO of Gab because so many people dismiss my insight as “envy” or “fear” when in reality I’m just doing what I always do and calling it how I see it. I don’t say this to be braggadocios, but as a matter of fact I am the foremost expert in the world when it comes to free speech online and so my opinion on these matters holds weight.
I’ve spent six years building the only platform on the internet that upholds First Amendment-protected political speech as the baseline for what is allowed to be posted. I’ve paid the price for this policy, getting banned from App Stores, banks, payment processors, hosting providers, and dozens of other services. No other platform can make this claim, certainly not Musk’s Twitter.
If you’ll remember I was correct about Parler and their use of AI to censor, I was correct about Rumble and their “hate speech” terms of service, and I was correct about Gettr using AI to censor as well. All of them claim to support free speech and all of them bent the knee to the Regime powers and censor “hate speech.” Twitter under Elon Musk is no different and my analysis about this situation will be right as well. Believe me now or thank me later. Take it or leave it.link
The example of how much better uncurated science has done during the pandemic than the curated kind proves that free speech does not lead to mayhem or even hurt feelings. It leads to better information. If real science had not been censored by government, social media, Twitter, and MSM, we would probably not even remember covid today. Real uncurated science found effective early treatments for covid within one year, thus precluding any need for a vaccine. Real uncurated science also identified the danger of Remdesivir, ventilators, and the experimental vaccines. The correct algorithm to use on Twitter is Twitter users being allowed to view what they want to. ABN
