Elon Musk’s “amnesty” plan to reinstate certain Twitter accounts that were banned under previous ownership has the media doing its thing. Axios even reported that it could put “lives at risk”:

Axios cited the Washington Post, which consulted an expert on the subject to explain why Musk’s moves at Twitter are “existentially dangerous”:

Between the lines: Alejandra Caraballo, clinical instructor at Harvard Law’s cyberlaw clinic, told the Washington Post that Musk’s planned action was “existentially dangerous” for marginalized communities.

“It’s like opening the gates of hell in terms of the havoc it will cause,” Caraballo said.

“People who engaged in direct targeted harassment can come back and engage in doxing, targeted harassment, vicious bullying, calls for violence, celebration of violence. I can’t even begin to state how dangerous this will be.”

Caraballo said Apple and Google should seriously consider “booting Twitter off the app store.”

Other media outlets have also quoted Caraballo to explain why Musk’s move at Twitter could create a dangerous atmosphere.

Meanwhile, Seth Dillon noticed something ironic about this particular online safety expert:

Every single time!

You can’t make this stuff up because unfortunately, you don’t have to.

And now the media’s quoting that person as an expert in rooting out rhetoric with potentially violent consequences? That sounds about right.

We’re shocked — shocked.

Apparently not.
