'FREE SPEECH IS ESSENTIAL': In Musk's First Meeting With Twitter Employees, Speech Takes Center Stage

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.17.22

During an all-hands call on Thursday, new Twitter sheriff Elon Musk spoke with Twitter employees who have been growing increasingly concerned about the Tesla billionaire’s plan for the platform. Musk made one thing very clear: free speech is essential.

According to RedState, “Project Veritas posted the highlights of the meeting where Musk is seen telling the Twitter employees that ‘it’s essential to have free speech’ and that people should be able to ‘communicate freely.’ He also wanted to ‘make sure we’re not…driving a narrative.’”

When it comes to legal but potentially harmful speech, Musk told Twitter employees, that people should be allowed to say what they want.

But that’s different from Twitter promoting that speech, Musk said, according to the source.

Users have the right to filter out content they don’t want to see, he added. Musk said the standard is much more than not offending people, it’s that they are entertained and informed.

Musk reiterated a sentiment he made online earlier that if 10% of the far left and far right are upset, Twitter is doing the right thing.

Addressing the topic of inclusion and diversity, Musk said the most inclusive thing to do would be to get all humans on Twitter.

He said he believes in strict meritocracy.
