Elon Musk confirms that Alex Jones will NOT be allowed back on Twitter

This isn’t so much an official response from Musk on the issue of bringing Alex Jones back as it is just a response, and one that he appears to mean.

Musk posed the question “what should Twitter do next” and someone responded that he should bring back Alex Jones:


To which Musk responded “no”:

So I guess that settles it. Alex Jones won’t be allowed back on Twitter.

Musk also put out his new policy on moderating content, which he calls ‘freedom of speech but not freedom of reach’:

He noted that this only applies to specific tweets and not the entire account:

I guess then the question becomes what exactly constitutes hate speech. Is it a user referring to someone else as their biological gender rather than their fake preferred gender? Is it someone saying that transgenderism is a mental illness? Is it someone saying they disagree with homosexuality? Because at the end of the day if their underlying policy on what constitutes hate speech doesn’t change, then some of his nutjob employees will be ‘max deboosting’ and ‘demonitizing’ a lot of tweets, and that still won’t be good.
