Twitter Locks Down Changes to Platform to Prevent Employee Sabotage After Musk Buyout

LUCAS NOLAN

Twitter has reportedly locked down changes to its platform through Friday following the acceptance of a $44 billion bid from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, preventing employees from easily making unauthorized changes or otherwise sabotaging the platform.
 
Bloomberg reports that Twitter has locked down its platform through Friday after accepting a bid of $44 billion by Tesla CEO Elon Musk to purchase the platform. The change will make it significantly harder for employees to make unauthorized changes, according to sources. This was likely done in an effort to prevent employees angered by Musk’s purchase from sabotaging the platform.
 
Sources say that Twitter will not allow product updates unless they’re absolutely business-critical. Product changes will also now require approval from a vice president. One source noted that the temporary ban was enacted in an effort to keep employees angered by the deal with Musk from “going rogue.”
 
Twitter has previously instituted code freezes ahead of key events such as the Super Bowl in an effort to ensure continuity across the platform and prevent unexpected bugs and mistakes.
 
Following Musk’s purchase of Twitter, several key conservatives have returned to the platform.
 
As Breitbart News reported today:
 
Fox News host Tucker Carlson was also suspended from the platform for endorsing the Babylon Bee’s tweet and another from Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kik in which he stated that Levine had lived “54 years of his life as a man.”
 
Carlson posted screenshots of both tweets, stating: “But wait. Both these tweets are true,” and appeared to be suspended as a result. Carlson has since returned to the platform, simply stating: “We’re back.”
 
Fox News host Mark Levin who voluntarily left Twitter also announced his return to the platform:

Yes... and the world is waking up to his common sense strategy...

Twitter has allowed anti-free speech, antisemitism, pro pedophilia, marxist/socialist/terrorist tweet in the past. How that will change will be made known once his final transformation policy has been finalized.

European rabbis urge Elon Musk to tackle Twitter antisemitism

Conference of European Rabbis congratulates Elon Musk on acquisition, urges him to make a 'quick win and clear break' from platform's past problems.

The Conference of European Rabbis (CER) has congratulated Elon Musk on his acquisition of the Twitter social media platform.
 
"We wish him every success in realizing the full potential of the platform," CER said. "In addition to accentuating Twitter’s many praiseworthy features, which democratize debate, this must include tackling the hate speech and extremism, including antisemitism, which has too often been a feature of the platform."
 
"A quick win and a clear break from the past would be the adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of antisemitism, used by governments and police forces around the word," CER continued.
 
"The adoption of the definition, alongside its rigorous enforcement, will go a long way to making Twitter all that it can be."
 
Earlier this week, Musk purchased Twitter for $44 billion. Upon learning that the deal was likely to be closed, Musk tweeted on his Twitter account, "I hope even my worst critics stay on Twitter, because that means freedom of speech."

From the previous article:

Lora Ries, a former Homeland Security deputy chief of staff and director of the Heritage Foundation’s Border Security and Immigration Center, called the board “an overtly political ploy” to try to chase opposing viewpoints from the political debate ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

“The left can no longer use COVID restrictions or now, seemingly Twitter, to mislabel and hide legitimate information American voters should have in casting their ballots. Instead, they are standing up this board to declare what the left believes is mis- or dis-information,” Ms. Ries said.

She also said policing disinformation “is not remotely the mission of the Department of Homeland Security

And who determines what is disinformation?

Twitter used to... oh wait... no that wasn't twitter... it was deep state... so now that Twitter can't be involved any more... they create another unnecessary government organization to determine what's disinformation and what isn't...

Like Hillary private Email server is disinformation.

Like Trump-Russia collusion is real.

Like Hunter laptop is Russian propaganda.

Like Jan 6th was an insurrection called by Trump.

Like the 2020 election was fair.

So they replace Twitter with a government agency. 

I don't see any difference. Why was it not necessary before Twitter was bought out?

To discredit and claim that things posted on Twitter are disinformation even though they're real.

The Department of Homeland Security has created a "disinformation" board designed to help Americans - and particularly minority voters - sort through bogus election claims.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS)

MISSION: 

The Department of Homeland Security will:

  1. Prevent terrorism and enhance security;
  2. Secure and manage our borders;
  3. Enforce and administer our immigration laws;
  4. Safeguard and secure cyberspace; and
  5. Strengthen national preparedness and resilience.

Department of Homeland Security | Performance.gov

Edited to add: Things NOT specifically granted to our government in the Constitution are strictly to be left up to the states...

Determining what is and what is not disinformation WAS NOT GRANTED in our Constitution... therefore, it MUST be left up to the States!!!

Bottom line: This new department is unconstitutional!!!!

FWIW

Because they owned all the platforms.  Now they must have a way to counter the new Twitter.
