Former Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal arrested for child porn

Parag Agrawal, the former CEO of Twitter, has been arrested for possession of child pornography after a tip off from Elon Musk.

The executive was arrested at his home in California by the FBI. His lawyer has stated to the Vancouver Times that he plans on pleading not guilty. He is expected to be released on bail.

The executive not only collected child abuse material off of Twitter and other social media platforms, he turned a blind eye to users that shared the same material on the social media platform.

Twitter was a haven for child porn until Elon Musk took over.

Child porn is banned speech because producing it is immoral and rightly criminalized. At the same time, the topic of child porn is legal and rightly should be legal to speak about. This illustrates a valuable distinction that can and should be made in free speech laws. I tend to think there is no topic that should be banned or made illegal. And neither should any individual’s speech receive a blanket ban or be made illegal. The ‘curators’ of free speech have failed miserably during covid, bringing death to millions as a direct consequence of their banning certain topics (early treatments, etc) and people (Dr Peter McCullough, etc). ‘The Science’ of AGW has very similar flaws and similarly will bring death and misery to millions if it continues to be widely protected from being questioned, even proved wrong. Just these two examples—covid and AGW—provide an argument strong enough remove all bans on topics and people. When Musk says he largely agrees to this but wants to ban the reach of some speech and some people, we can point back again to just these two topics. Banning precisely their reach has led to immense misery and death. ABN
