04.27.22. Elon Musk and the Battle for Twitter

Elon Musk

With Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, controversy ensues over issues of transparency and freedom of speech, and whether the platform can improve under Musk’s leadership.

This week, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19, which may be the least of her problems based on a new book that reportedly reveals tensions between she and other members of the Biden Administration, including the President. We also look at the current situation involving statements this week by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, which shed new light on the U.S. military’s role in the war in Ukraine. Elsewhere, controversy has erupted around Elon Musk’s sudden acquisition of Twitter… and many are concerned about what this means for the future of the company, and issues related to free speech and transparency. We look at all of these stories this week on Middle Theory.
