As you already know by now, Elon Musk has purchased a 9.2 percent share of Twitter, making him the company’s largest shareholder. Musk teased “significant improvements to Twitter in coming months” and CEO Parag Agrawal pretended to be thrilled to have Musk on board.
Can Musk now be suspended now that he owns the largest share of the company? He presented a lot of cash, which apparently got him around his problematic Twitter history. Sam Stein of Politico and MSNBC notes that Musk tweeted a Hitler meme just two months ago.
Two months ago Elon Musk tweeted a meme showing a picture of Hitler with the words “Stop comparing me to Justin Trudeau.” Today, he joins the company’s board.

Awesome. Twitter should allow free speech, not just Sam Stein approved speech.

And 18 months ago, Twitter banned users from sharing a link to a true news story about Biden being compromised by his son’s corruption right before an election.
Having a board member that criticizes a leader who confiscates the bank accounts of protesters is a big improvement. https://t.co/7btT0FAXPc

The media’s more triggered by this than Twitter shutting down talk of a factual story that would have negatively affected a Democrat presidential candidate just ahead of an election. https://t.co/reziKfqZQA

We looked for the meme because it sounds awesome, but the closest we could find was this:
