Elon Musk bought Twitter (now “X”) and promised free speech would soon be allowed back on the platform. We held out hope he would deliver. Our hopes were dashed.

Elon ‘talked the talk’ and claimed he was a ‘free speech absolutist, but we quickly realized he’s all talk. He did not ‘walk the walk’ and kowtowed to his advertisers and governments around the world.

Appointed X CEO by Musk, Linda Yaccarino now manages the day-to-day operations of X. She recently shed some light on the shadow banning operation at Twitter…er, X.

“If you’re going to post something that is lawful but it’s awful, you get labeled,” Yaccarino said. “You get de-amplified, which means it cannot be shared, and it is certainly demonetized.”

So much for freedom of speech on X.

We’re concerned that such censorship will worsen as the 2024 election approaches. Will they ban memes next? Musk refused to reinstate our original @grrrgraphics account (it had a large audience). Will they soon ban our new X account, @grrrgraphics2 ?  (Please follow us if you are on X)

Stay tooned.
