Twitter does not respect the principle of free speech
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc., recently stated on Twitter that he is seriously considering creating his own social media platform since Twitter does not adhere to the idea of free expression.
Failure to preserve the ideals of free expression significantly weakens democracy, given that Twitter functions as the de facto public square,” Musk stated.
Musk’s Tesla tweets remain subject to government investigation
Even if the court overturned Elon Musk’s 2018 deal with the SEC, the SEC informed a judge last week that his tweets regarding Tesla would remain a viable topic for a federal inquiry.
Max is asking the court to stop the SEC from overseeing his Twitter posts, claiming that the agreement is being used to violate his free speech rights, and to stop the securities regulator from subpoenaing papers relating to the verification of his tweets.
Following the SEC settlement, the business and Musk will disperse payments to investors who lost money buying Tesla shares after Musk tweeted that he was considering a public offering.
