Nesrine Malik’s complaint about free speech

(Twitter) “It also remains the only social media platform where people with little clout or profile can challenge elites directly.”

But of course I don’t mean that it should be the sort of place where the common oiks can challenge the metropolitan elites. Good Gracious no, that would be an entire abuse of free speech, wouldn’t it?

  1. Evidently the lady feels she should be free to say what she wants without fear of contradiction.

    The interesting question is whether, as she claims, advertisers are abandoning the site. I suspect she’s wrong, but time will tell.

  2. “This means that Twitter is about to turn into a far more unpleasant and potentially dangerous experience.”

    Brilliant! The more places that Malik finds unpleasant and potentially dangerous, the better off we are.

    There was a piece on Politocs EU confidential about how the EU uses Twitter as a communications tool and how important it is to them. At the same time they are lamenting the sacking of staff and there’s nobody left in Brussels for the EU to threaten Twitter with regulatory emasculation (my interpretation).

    Great move by Elon. Perhaps he should send the EU an invoice for using his service?

  4. From the article:

    “Nowhere is their oversimplification of the issue more evident than on social media, where abuse and disinformation have created a new frontier of regulation…”

    New frontier of regulation? Now doesn’t that sound chilling. It is ironic that a couple of generations ago it was the left pushing for more free speech, but now they are the ones who call for restrictions.

  5. Wife was saying there’s been outrage on Twitter over the public feeling sorry for Matt Hancock on reality tv instead of joining in the media and other contestants sneering and bullying
