Over the past 24 hours a handful of people have been suspended for impersonating Elon Musk on Twitter including people such as Kathy Griffin and Ethan Klein and the people suspended are whining and complaining that “comedy is dead” or “this isn’t free speech” but if we look at the initial reason they started doing this it tells a different story.
When Elon Musk announced that he would be charging $8 for verification and anyone could get it people on the left started complaining that it would mean nobody would know who was real and who was fake and just pretending to be someone…So they started impersonating Elon Musk to prove this point…by him suspending them for it he proves the point that impersonation won’t be an issue on the new Twitter.
The thing I find most amusing is that this impersonation rule has always been a rule, even before Musk bought Twitter…it just was only enforced on people on the right before now…so what these people are really angry about is that they have to play by the same rules as the people they disagree with now…and in my opinion that’s more than fair.
Not to mention that they claim it was just comedy but in order to be comedy it would have to be funny and it really wasn’t…it was like watching a 3rd grader try to tell a joke…you had dozens and dozens of people telling the same “joke” and the joke wasn’t even funny the first time. I think the way Elon Musk handled this was perfect and fair and shows that Twitter won’t be this hell scape leftists claim it will be where you won’t know who’s real and who isn’t. You can still make parody and joke accounts you just have to make it clear that’s what the account is for…Elon Musk put these people’s worries to rest and yet they’re still complaining…like I’ve said before no matter what he does these leftists will never be happy…they are acting like Twitter is totally different now when no rules have even been changed yet…the only difference is the rules are being enforced equally across the board…the way it should have always been.
