    Musk Drops Hammer On Reporter Over Twitter Claim: ‘You Just Lied’

    Published on

    A journalist from the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, persisted that Twitter allows hate speech on its platform, to which the company’s CEO, Elon Musk, swiftly smacked him down.

    “We’ve spoken to people very recently who were involved in moderation and they just say there are not enough people to police this stuff, particularly around hate speech in the company,” BBC U.S. Tech reporter James Clayton said to Musk in an interview that was shown on Tuesday. “Is that something that you want to address?”

    “What hate speech are you talking about? I mean, you use Twitter,” Musk said. “Do you see a rise in hate speech? Just a personal anecdote … I don’t.”

    Musk asked the reporter to “describe a hateful thing” but the reporter did not have an example as he said, “You know, just content that will solicit a reaction, something that may include something is slightly racist, or slightly sexist – those kinds of things.”

    Fox News announced:

    Musk then asked, “So you think if something is slightly sexist it should be banned? Is that what you’re saying?” Clayton replied, “No, I’m not saying anything.”

    He stated that, at a minimum, his Twitter “feed” contains “slightly more” hate speech than before Musk acquired the platform.

    Pressing him on it, Musk asked, “Can you name one example?” A flustered Clayton admitted, “Honestly, I don’t – I don’t …” At this point, Musk became amused and asked, “You can’t name a single example?”

    “I’ll tell you why,” the reporter said, “because I don’t actually use that ‘For You’ feed anymore because I don’t particularly like it.”

    “You said you’ve seen more hateful content but you can’t name a single example, not even one?” Musk hit back.

    “I’m not sure I’ve used that feed for the last three or four weeks…” the Twitter CEO said. “Well then how did you see the hateful content?”

    “Because I’ve been using Twitter since you’ve taken it over for the last six months,” the reporter said.

    “Okay, so then you must have at some point seen the ‘For You’ hateful content and I’m asking for one,” Musk said.

    However, the reporter was unable to provide an example of any offensive content he has encountered.

    “Then I say sir, that you don’t know what you’re talking about,” Musks aid to which the reporter responded, “Really?”

    “Yes, because you can’t give me a single example of hateful content, not even one tweet, and yet you claimed that the hateful content was high. That’s false,” Musk said.

    “You just lied,” Musk said as the reporter continued to explain himself, “No, what I claimed was there are many organizations that say that kind of information is on the rise. Now whether it is on my feed or not …”

    “You literally said you experienced more hateful content and then couldn’t name a single example. That’s absurd!” the CEO said.

    Twitter Inc. has amalgamated with Elon Musk’s X corporation, and some believe the company is now “dead.”

    “A filing at Southern District of Florida shows that Twitter Inc has merged with X Corp and now Twitter no longer exists. X Corp’s parent company is X Holding Corps. The new phase of Twitter will be X Corp. Is this the start of the everything app?” Mario Nawfal said on Twitter.

    Musk tweeted the letter “X” on Monday, a further indication that the CEO intends to create a “everything app” as he did before he became the company’s owner.

    “Buying Twitter is an accelerant to creating X, the everything app,” he said in a tweet before he became the owner of the company.

    Business Insider reported: The Twitter chief developed an affinity for the letter back in the 1990s, founding the company “” which later became PayPal. Musk then repurchased the domain name in 2017, and now appears to be starting to put together his new scheme.CONTINUE READING…
