UK Government and EU Bureaucrat Tell Elon Musk Free Speech Will Not Be Allowed on Twitter

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Elon Musk must keep Twitter “accountable” in terms of content material restriction, according to a spokesman for UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Musk, who describes himself as a “free speech absolutist,” has indicated that one of his aims is to increase the transparency of the platform he bought while also emphasising that “free expression is the backbone of a functional democracy.”

Although some have welcomed the upcoming Silicon Valley regime transition, British officials appear to be concerned that the takeover may obstruct their plans for further online censorship.

“No matter possession, all social media platforms should be accountable,” The Instances stories a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson as saying relating to the acquisition.

“That features defending customers from hurt on their websites,” the spokesman continued. “It’s too early to say what — if any — adjustments will likely be made to how Twitter operates.”

The United Kingdom already has severe censorship laws in place, forcing social media companies to remove anything that state authorities deem to be illegal as soon as it is handed to them for assessment.

The so-called Conservative Social gathering authorities have recently expanded its censorious goals to sort out what it considers to be “dangerous” content material on social media and is now preparing to introduce the so-called Online Harms Act, which will allow platforms to quickly require platforms to pre-emptively censor “authorised but dangerous” content material or face large fines.

Under the proposed legislation, social media companies might be subject to the country’s media regulator, Ofcom, which could prohibit companies like Twitter from allowing “dangerous” information, such as so-called “hate speech,” on their platforms.

It ought to be famous that, within the eyes of the federal government, “hate speech” is outlined as: “all types of expression which unfold, incite, promote or justify hatred based mostly on intolerance on the grounds of incapacity, ethnicity, social origin, gender, intercourse, gender reassignment, nationality, race, faith or perception, sexual orientation, colour, genetic options, language, political or some other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, delivery or age”.

Firms that fail to comply with British censorship after the passage of the Online Harms Bill would likely face fines of up to 10% of their global revenue, with executives facing consequences that include jail time if they refuse to placate Big Brother.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has also called for further regulation on social media sites in the name of preventing “prejudice.”

“Free speech can’t imply a free go for hatred,” the mayor wrote online after information of the acquisition emerged. “We should not overlook the impacts of online hate speech, which followers the flames of prejudice and results in appalling and tragic real-world violence.”

“Social media corporations should do extra, not much less, to guard their communities,” he additionally wrote.

While Britain has some of the most high-profile censoring regimes in the Western World, it is far not the only nation where lawmakers have been taking aim at the idea of unfettered social media discourse.

Thierry Breton, the European Union’s Tsar for the Internal Market, has asked that Musk follow all of the EU’s laws and regulations, including those governing the censoring of unpopular ideas.

“Elon, there are guidelines,” the Monetary Instances stories Breton is saying. “You’re welcome however these are our guidelines. It’s not your guidelines which are able to apply right here.”

“Anybody who desires to profit from this market must fulfil our guidelines,” the EU bigwig reportedly continued. “The board [of Twitter] must be sure that if it operates in Europe it must fulfil the obligations, together with moderation, open algorithms, freedom of speech, transparency in guidelines, obligations to adjust to our personal guidelines for hate speech, revenge porn [and] harassment.”

“If [Twitter] doesn’t adjust to our regulation, there are sanctions — 6 per cent of the income and, in the event that they proceed, banned from working in Europe,” the EU bureaucrat went on to threaten.

Elon Musk acquired Twitter for $44 billion on Monday, putting him in a position to become the world’s richest man. It is considered one of the most popular social media platforms utilised by world leaders, celebrities, and cultural trendsetters.

Well, so much for “you can do what you want on a private platform” that we’ve heard so frequently from the censorists as they defended censorship.

Not at all and I am more than prepared to sacrifice my life just to see the rest of the human (disg)race go down the pan!! But it infuriates me when I see this ‘false priest’ swanning around the place spreading his influence. Oh and the Draconians he so talks about were a reptilian race faced by Dr Who in the 1973 serial “frontier in space”. What chance has he got 1-2-1 with me when I give him the Mathematical reality, he’d get digested!! I acknowledge your fairness for posting these replies.

Why arch-racist Katie Hopkins loves Israel. https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20190622-why-arch-racist-katie-hopkins-loves-israel/
Israeli Jewish settlers carried out their shameful deed outside a court in the city of Lod, chanting “’Ali was burned, where is Ali? There is no Ali. Ali is burned. On the fire. Ali is on the grill!” referring to the 18-month old baby Ali Dawabsheh, who was burnt alive in 2015 by Jewish settlers hurling Molotov cocktails into a house in the West Bank town of Duma. Ali’s mother Riham and father Saad also died of their burns and were included in the chanting “Where is Ali? Where is Riham? Where is Saad? It’s too bad Ahmed didn’t burn as well.” Five year-old Ahmed, who alone survived the attack with severe burns, will have scars for the rest of his life.

They’re not doing a very good job censoring such content on that basis. Every time I see a clip from mainstream news, health officials or politicians speaking, it just makes me hate them more.

Control of America     “It is a marvel that the american people do not rise up and drive every JEW out of this country.”
“We Jews have put issue upon issue to the American people. Then we promote both sides of the issue as confusion reigns. With their eye’s fixed on the issues, they fail to see who is behind every scene. We Jews toy with the American public as a cat toys with a mouse.”
“It is an established rule to destroy all members of pre-existing government, their families and relatives, but never Jews. They destroy all members of the police, state police, army officers and their families but never Jews. You see, we know when a government begins to search for the Communists within its borders they are really attempting to uncover Jews in their area. We’er not fooled! The invisible rulers in the Communist countries have a world control over the propaganda and the governments in free countries.”“We control every media of expression including newspapers, magazines, radio and television. Even your music! We censor the songs released for publication long before they reach the publishers. Before long we will have complete control of your thinking.”“…few have the guts to speak out. We would all have better understanding between each other – jews and gentiles – if we spoke out more openly. Your people don’t have guts. We establish your thinking – we even place within you a ‘guilt complex’ making you afraid to criticize Jewry openly.“

This is just another example of worthless humans worshipping money. Nothing will change at twatter because the moron musk bought it. Why would it? Do you think the ‘revolution’ will begin with some twatter ‘discussion’. But then most of you think the world is a bed of roses don’t you? Sitting there in your house with your money.

Putin has once again hinted at nukes if you persist with your warmongering, and the chinese are warning of using missiles to shut down your power supply. Let’s hope one of these comes to pass, because that’s the only way out from under the filth that is britain today. I’d like to see you all trying to survive with no power, no car, no phone, no police to protect you and no food or water. Don’t forget to worship ‘progress’. You wouldn’t want to ‘live in the dark ages’.

The Elon worship is typical, I take him with caution. Extreme of either side love to grab onto a new god and use it to spite the other side.
I’ll wait to see how he uses data to monitor people in exchange for supposed freedom of speech.
Currently you can get banned/suspended if you post civil comment on rape and treatment of women by South Asian men (whether Muslim HIndu Christian), anything about South Asian greed and corruption.
You cannot post anything on crime of Arabs, their gun running in Haiti, their slavery and treatment of other races. Only certain topics are popular.
That is why things will continue to get worse.
People who cared about nothing but their own political side before are now begging for sympathy for their vaccine injury but still will not consider that there is more than one evil present.

The only useful discussion on twitter would be an open and frank discussion about how to fix whichever country you’re in. America is a huge place with lots of space but the uk isn’t. The problems are completely different. The biggest problems in the uk are the corruption and the immigration. If twitter won’t allow people to discuss those things it’s no better than all the other laughably-called social media. If it won’t allow everyone to discuss how to end the perversion it will be equally useless. But even if it does, how will the people be empowered to fix it? They won’t. The government will impose its will whatever the people want, and the government wants britain to be exactly the same as china in the end. They’re gods and you’re a voiceless lifelong slave. The most useful discussion twitter could allow would be one involving escapees from china describing the reality of the future of living in britain, and the government won’t allow that whatever musk wants. Britain, like america, canada, france, australia and new zealand, needs a revolution, and musk isn’t che guevara — he’s more like some ugly hollywood actor.

This is but a start to the NWO, the process whereby all individualism is expunged from humans (except the ‘elite’).
They will use the threats of fines and closure to persuade alternative sites, like this one, to reveal the names of their followers. People like us who make comments will be the first targeted, then anyone who regularly watches such ‘mis-information’.
The enforcers will be the resurgent Asov brigade from the Ukraine who will shoot us. Shot quite openly to compel compliance from the population.
Knowing this makes it easier to understand why the West is so keen for Ukraine to prevail.

Coincidence that Elon is promising freedom of speech in exchange for giving up anonymity? He wants to list and monitor everyone. Not that the current Twitter ownership is any better especially that crazy south Asian woman & her lunatic control issues (typical if you’ve ever worked with them & see how they treat their own kind).

Communists doung everything they can to silence the truth.

But why all the games? Why pretend the virus was natural? Why pretend the vaccine is healthy?

Why not just go full commie and tie everynody diwn and inject them with anything you want?

Why pretend the inflation and incoming famine is not manufactured by the Committee of 300?

Why are they lying about and why arent they just flipping the Transhumanism switch tomorrow?

They are working to a plan and it’s coming along just nicely from their point of view. You’ll be full on slaves in a few years and no longer human by 2030. The majority will be dead. It’s not like they’ve made a secret of it either. The general public — eyes wide shut. What’s more, just as frankenfauci and all the other ‘scientists’ get pleasure torturing innocent creatures to death in agony, your owners get great pleasure in seeing you squirm. Like the victims of frankenfauci, you have no way out.

It’s an American owned platform, a private company, how does the UK and EU have standing/jurisdiction? 1. America has a constitution that includes the first amendment. That is law. 2. We have international Human Rights Law that includes the Universal Declaration article 19 on Freedom of Speech. “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”
