    Elon Musk Signals Hard Times Are Ahead With Subtle Change on Twitter

    Published on

    Elon Musk’s Twitter page now has a darker tone than when he first took over last week, when he made fun of himself as “Chief Twit.”

    With major employee layoffs and perceived changes at Twitter at the center of the controversy, Musk has moved his location to “Hell.”

    By reassuring his fans that content filtering is still a thing on the social media site, Musk has attempted to wage his own little war against false information.

    “Again, to be crystal clear, Twitter’s strong commitment to content moderation remains absolutely unchanged. In fact, we have actually seen hateful speech at times this week decline *below* our prior norms, contrary to what you may read in the press,” he tweeted on Friday.

    Musk also fought back against the resentment his layoffs had caused.

    “Regarding Twitter’s reduction in force, unfortunately there is no choice when the company is losing over $4M/day. Everyone exited was offered 3 months of severance, which is 50% more than legally required,” he wrote.

    According to The New York Times, Twitter let go of around 3,700 employees, or just under 50% of its pre-Musk staff.

    Workers are suing Musk on the grounds that his move contravenes a federal regulation requiring advance notice of mass layoffs.

    According to a story in The Washington Post, the layoffs and the content filtering concerns are related because political sensibilities have been severely ruffled by decisions made just before election day.

    A spokesperson of a significant political party reportedly informed The Post that the party is noticing faster Twitter response times when it wants to report false information. However, neither the source of information nor the entity making the assertion was identified in the report.

    “Law enforcement may lose precious minutes in identifying that person who we think is posing an actual threat,” said Katherine Keneally, a senior research manager at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, according to the report.

    President Joe Biden piled on with his dose of criticism Friday.

    “Elon Musk goes out and buys an outfit that sends and spews lies all across the world,” he said, according to Insider. “There are no editors anymore.” CONTINUE READING…
