“Twiter’s chief censor” (intended misspelling) ....... try to keep hydrated @info and perhaps reflect on your personal hygiene with bum splatter like that you clearly have the shits .... again.

No mate. It’s not censorship and it’s not restricting free speech if you choose to not sell a car to someone. There’s a million criticisms of Tesla online and Teslas are still being sold to the public.

Censorship is restricting public access to information not denying a customer access to product because they talked smack about the product. The customer is still free to publicly denigrate Tesla.

restricted access to a product or service for having voiced an opinion is not censorship? Of course it is.

You could do better, they’re kinda, you know, low-brow.

I don't follow or go to any USA based media as such, it just came up in my FB feed as a sponsored post, i expect because I've been reading so many twitter/musk related stuff of late.

Out of interest, i had a look on bias media check to see how they compare to CNN.

They both receive the same factual reporting ranking MIXED

And CNN is ranked a few notches further left than New York post is ranked to the right.

For interest sake Fox news ranks a few notches further again to the right than CNN

Twitter is cool. You Elon fanboys should get on it. It's like you can talk directly to him.

Maybe he'll even be your friend for reals.

"Elon Musk wants to 'authenticate all real humans' on Twitter. Here's what that could mean"

Never been into Twitter but this could be problematic for you Constance.

You might only be able to get one of you half a dozen accounts with obscure handle's verified.

Hahaha.

Obscure handles...all just a google away! Shatner's Bassoon, Factotum, Dale Cooper.

Actually, my ode to Constance Hall and Bella Gibson is a tad obscure! Jeez, if I forget my password again...or get yet another phone and/or laptop...

Musk needs to have the entire Starlink fleet roughly inserted into his anus.

Ha! Yep!
He’d probably love it then force us to observe his sphincter landing on Mars !
