LOSING THEIR TWIT: The Left Pushes Panic After Musk's Announcement, 'Abolish Billionaires'

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.14.22

After billionaire Elon Musk announced his bid to buy Twitter, members of the left lost their minds, sharing fears on the platform itself. Musk offered to buy the company for $54.40 per share —a more than $40 billion dollar cash offer.

And here comes the internet.

“I am frightened by the impact on society and politics if Elon Musk acquires Twitter. He seems to believe that on social media anything goes. For democracy to survive, we need more content moderation, not less,” liberal columnist Max Boot wrote, while venture capitalist Fred Wilson claimed Twitter was “too important to be owned and controlled by a single person.”

“Elon Musk is why to abolish billionaires. Asking them to chip in their fair share isn’t enough. Regulating them isn’t enough. When people are allowed to acquire this much concentrated influence, they will inevitably manspread economic power into every other form of power,” wrote MSNBC analyst Anand Giridharadas, adding later that “Every invader in history has promised to unlock the potential of what they were invading.”

Liberal professor Jeff Jarvis wrote, “Today on Twitter feels like the last evening in a Berlin nightclub at the twilight of Weimar Germany.”

The Twitter board will meet Thursday afternoon to discuss Musk’s offer.
