Free speech warrior Elon Musk allegedly threatened to sue Twitter staff over media leak

Elon Musk allegedly threatened Twitter staff who leak confidential company information to the press after he approvingly released internal messages from employees to some experts.

The new owner of the social media company – who has repeatedly backed free speech absolutism and claimed ‘transparency is the key to trust’ and ‘sunlight is the best disinfectant’ – ordered staff to sign a document acknowledging the warning, according to a report by Platform editor Zoe Schiffer.

“As evidenced by the many detailed leaks of confidential information on Twitter, a few people at our company continue to act in a manner contrary to the company’s interests and in violation of their [nondisclosure agreement]the post read, according to the report.

“It will only be said once: if you clearly and willfully violate the NDA you signed when you joined, you accept liability to the fullest extent of the law. [and] Twitter will immediately seek damages,” he continues.

The world’s richest person reportedly added that “breaking his word by sending detailed information to the media…will get the response he deserves.”

Hailed by conservatives as evidence of a conspiracy against them, ‘The Twitter Files’ contain selective emails and internal messages about how the company has tackled content moderation and accounts that violate terms of service. business use.

The posts lack crucial context while alleging that the company conspired to censor right-wing accounts for political gain. Instead, they revealed what the company has said publicly about its moderation policies for several years, while illustrating the same phenomenon they claim to denounce: weaponizing social media platforms for partisan purposes.

Their publication to a select group of writers, who have been disseminating selected findings in a series of Twitter threads over the past week, also appears to reflect Mr. Musk’s own stated policy goals of “free speech, no freedom of access”.

On Nov. 30, the company said in a statement that “none of our policies have changed,” but enforcement of its policy relies on “de-amplification of violating content: free speech, but not freedom of access”.

Mr Musk also faces his own lawsuit, after two women who lost their jobs at Twitter claimed the company was disproportionately targeting female employees after laying off hundreds of workers.

The lawsuit in US District Court in San Francisco said Twitter laid off 57% of its female workforce, compared to 47% of male employees.

He also alleges the disparity is more severe in engineering roles, where 63% of women lost their jobs compared to 48% of men.

The lawsuit accuses the company of violating federal and state laws against gender discrimination in the workplace.
