African-American tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has officially completed his Twitter Inc, and his first act of owner of the Big Tech social media platform was to fire CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Sagal.
Agrawal previously served as the site’s Chief Technical Officer, and was described as “obsessively” focusing on using the platform’s resources to censor “hate speech and “misinformation.”
Outlook India reported that “After taking over as CTO, Agrawal’s main focus was on using AI and ML to identify hate speech and bots that were used to spread misinformation through the microblogging site.”
Perhaps most notably, Musk also fired the site’s head of “trust and safety,” Vijaya Gadde, who made the decision to deplatform 45th president of the United States Donald Trump.
Gadde also participated in the censorship of a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop just days before the 2020 presidential election, a move that many critics say was calculated to help Democrat candidate Joe Biden.
Gadde appeared on an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast in 2019 to defend the banning of radio and TV host Alex Jones, and defended the left-wing political bias of the site’s “safety” policies.

He should have terminated the commie filth.

He should have reinstated President Trump and THEN fired the scum that banned him.

Until someone else learns how to land and reuse rockets, the deep state will just have to suck it up buttercup!

Now everyone should be reinstated.

God Bless Elon for this great first step.

Does this mean calling out the Jews will finally come into season on Twitter?

Sure, now more people will know you as a POS antisemitic moron who’s emotional development was halted in a toddler’s anal stage!
Better call Mom upstairs and ask when your chicken nuggets and tater tops will be ready.

Thank you, Elon, for restoring integrity to social media.

Twitter will become just another fetid pool of extreme fringe Right nutters. Advertisers and normal people will drop their accounts, and it will be nothing more than another outlet for the kook incels, for whom MAGA is just an excuse for their worthless lives.

Sounds like you really hate intolerant people.

NEVER HIRE NON-U.S. CITIZENS. NEVER HIRE FOREIGNERS.
East Indians are the worst. They are infiltrators trying to turn this country into another shit hole, like India.

There’s an African American that has enrichened his adopted country, used his ‘hand-up’ (not hand-out) to create thousands of jobs and propel mankind upwards.
Well done, Mr. Musk. I’m proud to share citizenship with you.

Some decent justice is brought to the censoring left!
I was beginning to wonder if I’d ever see the day. THANKS, ELON !!!
But this just scratches the surface………..
