Twitter Employees Express Their Unhappiness About Musk Being the Largest Shareholder – Opinion

As the western world celebrates Tesla CEO Elon Musk becoming the largest shareholder in the online “de-facto public square,” some of the employees at Twitter aren’t at all pleased about the development.

No wonder. It’s no wonder that Twitter has become a sort of ideological bubble, with a lot of hard-lefters living in a tepid pool. They seem to believe death threats to anyone who isn’t Marxist are okay. They’re especially okay if they disagree with the mainstream transgender narrative and will only react if a large enough person brings the issue to the public’s attention.

Andy Ngo went through and documented some of the reactions from Twitter employees as they learned about Musk’s controlling shares and they’re exactly what you’d think they are.

One “data scientist” on Twitter describing himself as a “Feminist Demisexual Genderqueer Trans Woman,” said he was “terrified” while a Senior Software Engineer said he worried about the “company culture” at Twitter.

More examples were posted at the Post Millennial, but these two examples are, in my opinion, a pretty solid indicator of where many of the employee’s heads are at.

While it’s unclear when or what Musk will do with his shares, what is clear is that Musk is doing this to make moves within the company to shake up its policies and bring more sanity to the platform.

These radical leftists, ideological identitarians, and other ideologists need to be concerned about company culture. The current culture is exclusionary, hateful and very bigoted. There is a clear bias toward the hard-left and anyone expressing ideas that run contrary to theirs will find themselves having a hard time with Twitter’s ban hammer. Many conservatives have been removed from Twitter, even though they never broke its rules. Donald Trump was included.

If Musk exerts any kind of real control over the company, it’s highly likely that banning, suspensions, and punishments will be scaled back tremendously. Interpretations of Twitter’s terms of service will likely no longer be accepted and the rules will be a lot more hard and fast, giving users a clear indication of what is and isn’t allowed on the platform instead of finding they crossed a line without understanding they were doing so later.

Also, free speech will be the platform’s primary virtue, which is something that it does not have at this point.

Many people may react differently to this, just like the ones in the tweets. The leftists may decide to walk out, as many have done lately. Or they might just leave, which is the best case scenario.

Whatever the case, there is a shift in the air and that will change things for the better. Twitter is in drastic need of change and if anyone can enact that change, it’s Musk.
