Billionaire business tycoon Elon Musk tweeted Monday that Twitter clearly has a significant “left bias.”
“Twitter obviously has a strong left bias,” Musk tweeted.
Musk, who plans to buy Twitter, reiterated his goal is to allow free speech on the platform within the law.
“As I said, I prefer to abide by the laws of the countries where Twitter operates. If the citizens want something to be banned, pass a law about it, otherwise it should be allowed,” he noted.
Blaze Media CEO Tyler Cardon replied to Musk: remark“And for that you are vilified as a virulent racist/sexist/homophobe. let her squeal Stay the course.”
Many social media users have long criticized Twitter for being biased towards the right of the political spectrum.
Musk made the comment about Twitter’s left-leaning in response to Mike Cernovich, who had done so tweeted“Here you go @elonmusk, if Twitter staff invariably lies to you about the enforcement policy, maybe they can explain why a verified account is allowed to incite terrorism without caring about the world being banned.”
Cernovich included a screenshot of a tweet in which a person named Caroline Reilly expressed her approval of the news that the office of a pro-life group had been vandalized. Reilly’s tweet said: “More of this. May these people never know a moment of peace or security until they rot in the ground.”
Reilly’s Twitter account is no longer available – a message posted on the social media platform Remarks that “This account does not exist.”
Leftists have been in an uproar over a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion suggesting the Supreme Court is poised to overthrow the landmark Roe v. calf abortion verdict.
Last month, Musk tweeted that “for Twitter to earn public trust, it must be politically neutral, which effectively means angering the far right and the far left alike.” He also tweeted last month that “today’s Democratic Party has been hijacked by extremists.”
