Yesterday we told you about Elon Musk commenting on how inappropriate it was for Twitter to suspend the New York Post for their article on Joe and Hunter back in 2020:

Well today, the Washington Post is defending Twitter and attacking Musk over this comment:

Here’s what they wrote:

Elon Musk on Tuesday used his powerful Twitter account to bolster right-wing users who sharply criticized two company executives, exposing them to the online masses who joined in the attacks.

It started with a tweet from political podcast host Saagar Enjeti, who was responding to a report by Politico that Twitter’s legal, policy and trust leader broke down in tears at a meeting with her staff this week.

“Vijaya Gadde, the top censorship advocate at Twitter who famously gaslit the world on Joe Rogan’s podcast and censored the Hunter Biden laptop story, is very upset about the @elonmusk takeover,” Enjeti tweeted.

Tesla CEO Musk, who acquired Twitter for $44 billion this week, replied, criticizing Gadde’s past actions. “Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate,” he wrote.

Musk’s tweet could potentially run afoul of the terms of his deal to acquire Twitter, which permit the SpaceX and Tesla founder to tweet about his acquisition “so long as such Tweets do not disparage the Company or any of its Representatives.”

During the 2020 presidential election, Twitter temporarily blocked a New York Post story on Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter that it said violated a policy against posting hacked materials. The company did not suspend the entire news organization but did prevent it from tweeting for a period of time.

Musk’s response Tuesday was the first time he targeted specific Twitter executives by using his nearly singular ability to call attention to topics that interest him. Supporters of Musk, a prolific and freewheeling tweeter with 86 million followers, tend to pile on with his viewpoints.

He has used the platform to criticize Twitter’s decisions in the past, particularly on topics related to free speech and the banning of accounts from individuals who violate Twitter rules. Gadde is the most senior executive responsible for those decisions.


First of all, Musk didn’t disparage Twitter or Gadde. He simply pointed out that it was incredibly inappropriate for Twitter to block the New York Post over their truthful article on Joe and Hunter. He didn’t belittle the company in any way while stating what is obviously the truth, and the Wapo suggestion that this could put his purchase in jeopardy is nothing but leftist garbage.

Secondly, Wapo is using technicalities to defend Gadde and Twitter. While the New York Post’s account wasn’t technically suspended and thus disabled, it WAS effectively suspended because it was put in read-only mode so that the New York Post could not tweet until they deleted the article on Joey and Hunter. They refused to deleted and thus couldn’t tweet for weeks until Twitter finally gave in and restored their access.

The Washington Post also claimed that Elon took “a swipe at Twitter’s popularity” when he pointed out that Truth Social was currently higher ranked than Twitter. Here’s the tweets by Musk:

Again, Musk is only stating the truth again. He’s not belittling Twitter, but simply pointing out how Twitter has damaged their own brand so much that other platforms like Truth Social are surging ahead. Censorship was the reason Musk bought the company, so I think he’s just being honest about what he’s bought and the work he has to do to right the ship.

Musk has really become public enemy number one now and the libs are taking potshots at him because he’s not going to let them get away with abusing Twitter for politics any longer.
