Subj: Elon Musk buys Twitter

A good thing? A bad thing?

He's always been about 50/50 for me. Teslas seem to be good cars. Space X is doing some interesting things. The Boring Company doesn't seem to be doing much. Haven't heard a Starlink update in a while.

Is changing Twitter from one private owner to another going to help its case for free speech? Won't he still have to answer to a Board of Directors, and to some extent the employees and users? And to the FCC or FTC? Is there much that he can really change?

If he can affect changes, will he allow misinformation to spread without consequence? And if so, will it just become another 4Chan?
