Tesla, SpaceX and now Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced in a tweet Friday that no major account reinstatements will occur until the convention of a “council” with different viewpoints. “Twitter will be forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints. No major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes,” Musk said.

Twitter users replied with a series of questions on banned accounts, reinstatement and other maters. “Will any avowed Libertarians be on the panel?” Libertarian Party of New Hampshire asked. “Currently Libertarians must be very careful about how we speak on every big tech platform or we risk being banned for our beliefs.”
“The council needs to have bi-partisan representation among people who all agree on certain principles,” citizen journalist Andy Ngo chimed in.
“To be super clear, we have not yet made any changes to Twitter’s content moderation policies.” Musk added on Friday night.
Rasmussen Reports shared a list of some of the people who have lost their Twitter accounts in the wake of fascistic technocratic censorship, a list which includes Emerald Robinson, Steve Bannon, Dr. Robert Malone, Mike Lindell, The Babylon Bee, Project Veritas, and many others.

“When will that council be formed and meet?” the Hodgetwins asked.
“Left wingers say ‘diverse’ and then fill it with people agree with them,” musician and podcaster, Anomaly pointed out. “I hope you mean it!”

Musk also recently pointed out the powerful tool that Twitter is in the realm of citizen journalism. “A beautiful thing about Twitter is how it empowers citizen journalism – people are able to disseminate news without an establishment bias,” Musk said.
It is unclear how much of an effect the change in upper brass at Twitter will have on the November 8th midterm elections, if any.
