Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is no stranger to controversy. In the past, he’s made headlines for his involvement in bizarre Twitter feuds, his eccentric behavior, and his various business antics. Now, it seems that Musk is stoking controversy on a new front, this time revealing sensitive internal deliberations at Twitter around Hunter Biden’s personal computer files in the fall of 2020.
Ahead of the midterm elections, Musk urged his followers to vote Republican. Last month, he reinstated former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account after taking an informal online poll. On Friday evening, just hours before the long-awaited disclosure of Hunter Biden’s emails was set to occur, Musk tweeted that he would be “live tweeting” the event.
Critics have accused Musk of using his massive social media platform to disseminate conservative propaganda and sow division. Some have even called for a boycott of Tesla products. But it seems clear that Musk is uninterested in currying favor with those on the left; instead, he appears to be steering Twitter in a more libertarian and conservative direction. Only time will tell how this new course will affect Twitter’s bottom line.
