Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, has publicly & swiftly denied a request to have radio host Alex Jones return to the social media platform.
They're trying to take away our free speech, because they can't stand that we speak the truth about them and what they really are— Russia Truth (@Russia_Truth) November 18, 2022
On Friday, Musk fielded an open-ended question to his followers by asking “What should Twitter do next?”
“Bring back Alex Jones!!!!” Said a user named “@HardcoreNolley”
“No,” Musk replied almost immediately.

Musk’s apparent ultimatum against Jones comes shortly after a Friday statement about how he plans to conduct the reach of users based on their content.
“New Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach. Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter. You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of Internet.”

Also on Friday, Musk reinstated previously banned accounts like The Babylon Bee.
He has yet to make a decision on reinstating President Trump’s Twitter account.
Currently, critics are slamming Musk (who claims to be a “free speech absolutist”) for his inconsistent standards of who is and isn’t allowed on Twitter, with the recent return of Kathy Griffin being a glaring example:
🤨 @elonmusk "Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter." Not true! You reinstated #KathyGriffin who spreads HATE, but you won't reinstate #AlexJones who spreads TRUTH and saves lives! This is NOT free speech! Gaslighting! https://t.co/1wNM12LOGw— Samantha @SamsTwitch (@Samstwitch_Sam) November 18, 2022
