Twitter commits to censorship, adopts poison bill to stop Elon Musk takeover and return of free speech on platform


In this April 16, 2022 article for Axios, Jacob Knutson and Sara Fischer offers a rundown of the issues surrounding Twitter’s adoption of The Rights Plan, more commonly known as the “poison pill”. According to the authors, the Board’s decision to adopt the strategy was clearly meant to deter Elon Musk from owning the social media platform.

The measure, enacted by Twitter’s board last April 15, 2022, allows existing shareholders to purchase additional shares at a discount, which effectively dilutes Elon Musk’s ownership stake.

Early this month, Musk disclosed a 9.2% stake in Twitter, earning him a board position, which he later refused. He subsequently offered to purchase the company for $54.20 per share, which he says, is one way of protecting free speech.[1]Musk explains his vision for Twitter, where it can be an “inclusive arena for free speech”, see https://fee.org/articles/did-elon-musk-just-save-free-speech/

Editor’s Note: While we cannot guarantee that Elon Musk is truly a free speech champion, the action of the Twitter board in the past week has been indicative of their commitment to censorship.

Why would Twitter take the poison pill, if the issue was purely financial?

For most of us who are monitoring this situation, it is clear: Musk’s “threat” to return free speech on Twitter is the only reason why these people are fighting back. Doesn’t this make you wonder what it is they are fighting for exactly?

To better understand just how financially “illogical” Twitter’s decision was, read:

The drama on Twitter has also unmasked the conspirators who are actively curtailing our rights to free expression. First, we are witnessing the well-oiled propaganda machine in full battle mode. Mainstream media companies have all released their own smear campaigns against Musk, and “in defense” of the Twitter Board’s illogical decision [this is the same way they have been defending and legitimizing governments’ illogical and unscientific COVID policies, see Another media insider reveals how network uses corrupt practices to promote COVID vaccines and fake news, How the media is pushing vaccine misinformation, Dr. Scott Atlas accuses media of spreading partial truths about the coronavirus, Mainstream media spinning news about Delta cases to sell vaccines to unvaccinated, Mainstream Media Creates Unethical Narrative Urging Doctors to Withhold Treatment for Unvaccinated, How Ivermectin’s success has been suppressed by mainstream media, Mass vaccination programs are failing, mainstream media attempt to misinform people, Mainstream media backpedals, says same insights Dr. Scott Atlas has been saying six months ago, Twitter blocks link to mainstream news article questioning COVID death statistics in UK].

Second, we are now seeing that the issue at Twitter does not just affect the company. If Musk was successful at acquiring the platform and restoring free speech, Big Tech companies can no longer defend their censorship policies. Is it any wonder then, if major tech companies (i.e. Facebook and Google) want to snatch this Twitter take over from Musk?

Fortunately, Google and Facebook cannot yet purchase the social media platform as they will be violating anti-trust laws.[2]https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/twitter-elon-musk-mark-cuban-tech-buyout-bid-offer-tesla-2022-4?op=1

But guess which company now has the biggest stake in Twitter? It’s Vanguard Group of course![3]https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/news/musk-no-longer-twitter-s-largest-shareholder-who-has-the-top-spot-with-an-over-10-stake-in-the-company/ar-AAWi4fU?cvid=cc94045bf62f4221b23537392f4a8b6d [To understand the significance of this, we encourage you to read the article BlackRock, Vanguard stands to profit enormously from vaccines, vaccine passports and watch the attached video entitled Who Owns The World?].

We also urge you to read this article from Nasdaq which says, “Twitter would be better off if Musk does not push absolute free speech”.[4]https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/twitter-stock%3A-elon-musks-arrival-what-comes-next Why are they so afraid of free speech?
