When it comes to Big Tech, there have been few shake ups as significant as Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter.
Leftists are losing their minds over this takeover, and many are worried that the days of restricted free speech (in the Left’s favor, of course) are coming to an end.
In fact, Whoopi Goldberg is so furious at Elon Musk she did something no one saw coming.
The Left is not reacting well to Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover
After a long, scandal-plagued buyout process, entrepreneur Elon Musk is now the owner of Twitter.
Elon Musk has made it clear that big changes are coming to Twitter, including a crackdown on fake accounts or “bots” as well as a more level playing field for both sides of the political aisle to have access to free speech.
Although these changes ought to be something everyone should support, the radical Left is in full-on meltdown mode.
One such member of the radical Left is washed-up actress and The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
While speaking to viewers on The View, Whoopi Goldberg claimed that “It has been a little over a week since Elon Musk took over Twitter, and the place is a mess.”
She then went on to say “He’s putting his $8 charge for blue check verification on hold. First, it was going to be $20, now it’s going to be $8. So. He also suspended Kathy Griffin for impersonating him on a parody account.”
For reference, Whoopi Goldberg is referring to Kathy Griffin changing her name on Twitter to Elon Musk, which led to her account being suspended by Twitter.
“I’m getting off,” she said on Monday’s show. “I just feel like it’s so messy, and I’m tired of having had certain types of attitudes blocked, and now they’re back. I’m going to get out, and if it settles down and I feel more comfortable, maybe I’ll come back.”
As you can see, Whoopi Goldberg and her extreme far-left fans who still watch The View are outraged by the changes Elon Musk is making to Twitter.
Why the Left cannot stand Elon Musk and his changes to Twitter
Like with any major buyout, the changes to Twitter are not going to happen overnight.
It will take some time before the major changes Elon Musk is proposing are put into action, and it will take even longer to assess the effects of these changes.
Musk’s changes ought to make Twitter a more equitable platform, that allows people from all political leanings and backgrounds to have a say.
Nothing infuriates the Left more than free speech, especially from people they deem to be “MAGA Republicans,” or whatever new ridiculous term they come up with this week.
The truth is, Whoopi Goldberg, and all of the other far-left celebrities who are leaving Twitter will not be missed and their departure speaks volumes about their loathing of the very concept of free speech.
Hopefully, even more radicals like Whoopi Goldberg will leave the platform in the near future.
As far as Elon Musk and Twitter are concerned, it is hard to say how his changes will impact the platform.
But given Musk’s successful entrepreneurial past, they will likely make the platform more profitable and enjoyable to use.
Whether or not they will have a long-term political or social impact has yet to be determined.
