Elon Musk, the owner of social media giant Twitter, stated on Wednesday that he fully expects to reduce his time at the company and find someone else to lead things, going on to add he hopes to complete an organizational restructuring this week.
The remarks were made while Musk was testifying before a court in Delaware, defending himself against claims that his $56 billion pay package at Tesla Inc. was based on an easy to achieve performance target and was approved by a compliant board of directors.
“There’s an initial burst of activity needed post-acquisition to reorganize the company,” Musk stated during his testimony “But then I expect to reduce my time at Twitter.”
“The billionaire’ s first two weeks as Twitter’s owner has been marked by rapid change and chaos. He quickly fired Twitter’s previous chief executive and other senior leaders and then laid off half of Twitter’s staff earlier this month,” Newsmax reported.
Let’s hope the person he picks to lead the company is someone who is rabid about free speech and will encourage free discourse on the app. Whoever it is, they need to have a steel backbone to not cave under the pressure of the woke mob that will no doubt be relentless in their assault, pushing for censorship of anyone who does not agree with their opinions.

Twitter, as Musk has noted, is now the digital town square, where folks are supposed to be free to go and share thoughts, beliefs, ideas, and opinions, allowing them to do battle on the philosophical battleground in hopes that the truth will reign victorious.
When leftists were in charge, they silenced the voices of anyone dared not to go along with progressive groupthink. This led to stagnation on the platform and stunted the forward progress of our society and culture.
Which is ironic. The left are known as “progressives” but their censorship actually causes things to go backwards.
