Elon Musk put himself in the crosshairs when he bought Twitter.
Plenty would be happy to see him taken down.
And Musk revealed the enemy he’s up against with three haunting words.
Elon Musk followed through with his plan to buy Twitter for $44 billion and take the company private.
He did so in order to rebuild a culture of free speech on the platform.
And Musk says he’s willing to stick to his guns even at “personal safety risk.”
Account tracking his private jet presents challenge for Musk
One of the first big tests of Musk’s regime is the issue of a Twitter account that tracks the location of his private jet.
Similar accounts have become popular for exposing the hypocrisy of so-called climate warriors.
Musk tweeted, “My commitment to free speech extends even to not banning the account following my plane, even though that is a direct personal safety risk.”
The account Musk referred to is called ElonJet, which shows where his plane is going and how much carbon is emitted on a particular jaunt.
ElonJet account creator Jack Sweeney wrote, “Thank you for backing your commitment to free speech. Overwhelmingly the followers of my account are supporters and admirers of your endeavors.”
Sweeney also shrugged off concerns that Musk would deep-six his account after taking over Twitter.
He wrote in a Newsweek op-ed, “I’m not worried now that Musk owns Twitter. If he banned ElonJet, the news would be all over it, so I don’t think he will do it.”
Sweeney is certainly correct.
The ElonJet account has amassed a hair under 500,000 followers.
People would notice if his account were nuked.
Sweeney also added he did not advocate for anyone following Musk and confronting him in any sort of physical or violent way.
There has been much wailing from the Left since Musk took over Twitter.
They can’t believe that their favorite propaganda platform is under the thumb of somebody that they do not entirely control.
For example, Musk wrote on Twitter that people should vote Republican in the Midterms.
The thought of Musk arbitrarily firing off tweets like that makes leftists furious.
Conversely, under the old regime, Twitter was actively suppressing stories and accounts that were detrimental to the establishment narrative.
The game has completely changed now that the federal government can’t easily strong-arm Twitter into sniping accounts that it does not like.
Hopefully, that will last and Musk won’t fall into the Deep State’s clutches.
