THE Joe Biden stated on Friday that Elon Muskby buying Twitter, acquired a social networking platform, which spreads lies all over the world.
Twitter laid off half its workforce yesterdaybut argued that the cuts were smaller to the group responsible for preventing the spread of disinformation.
Biden said during a fundraiser: “And now what we’re all worried about: Elon Musk goes out and buys equipment that sends and spreads lies around the world… There are no editors in America anymore to check what’s being written. They do not exist. How can we expect children to be able to understand what is at stake?’
White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre earlier told reporters that Biden is adamant about the need to curb hate speech and misinformation.
“That belief extends to Twitter, it extends to Facebook and any other social media platform where users can spread misinformation.”the spokeswoman said.
Musk has promised to restore free speech while at the same time blocking it Twitter to turn into a “hellscape”. However, major advertising companies have been expressing concerns about his acquisition for months.
