Elon Musk paid $44 billion to bring free speech back to Twitter.

He had to clean house at the company as soon as he took over.

And one Twitter censor shown the door by Musk just landed a surprising gig.

As soon as Musk took control of Twitter, he realized that online censorship was far worse than he thought.

The old regime at Twitter had worked closely with alphabet agencies and NGOs to suppress certain viewpoints on the platform.

Big Tech censorship

For example, Stanford Epidemiologist Dr. Jay Bhattacharya was put on a “do not trend” list for posting messages that disagreed with Anthony Fauci and the COVID regime.

One of the leaders of the old Twitter censorship complex was Yoel Roth, former head of the trust and safety team.

But after being fired by Musk, Roth landed the same trust and safety position for the online dating juggernaut Match Group, which owns and operates Match, Tinder, Hinge, The League, OKCupid, BLK, Archer, Azar, Chispa, and others.

While there are issues like spam accounts and spammers on dating sites, there is little in Roth’s track record that suggests he’s adept at tackling such a problem.

Twitter was rife with bogus accounts when Roth was head of trust and safety.

Users can also expect Roth’s “woke” politics to be infused into the entire suite of apps.

In his University of Pennsylvania PhD thesis, Roth wrote, “Even with the service’s extensive content management, Grindr may well be too lewd or too hook-up-oriented to be a safe and age-appropriate resource for teenagers; but the fact that people under 18 are on these services already indicates that we can’t readily dismiss these platforms out of hands as loci for queer youth culture. Rather than merely trying to absolve themselves of legal responsibility or, worse, trying to drive out teenagers entirely, service providers should instead focus on crafting safety strategies that can accommodate a wide variety of use cases for platforms like Grindr — including, possibly, their role in safely connecting queer young adults.”

In other words, Roth wants to find a space for underage people to use dating apps.

Underage users

During a recent interview with Wired, Roth was asked, “What about protecting underage users on these apps? I know the apps have age requirements, but as you know, people sneak on all forms of social media when they’re underage, and that’s another vulnerable population.”

Roth responded, “Across the board our apps are for adults. We have sort of a wide range of tactics and techniques that we’re using to try to keep underage folks off of our apps. But I think it’s worth considering these problems in a broader context of the ecosystem. We care a lot about identifying underage users and removing them from our products. But I think there’s an opportunity for app stores to play a part in this as well.”

It’s not entirely clear what the “broader context” would be.

Regardless, Roth’s transition from Twitter to Match Group shows that Big Tech is filled with “woke” leftists in positions of cultural influence.
