Is Elon Musk Deliberately Torching Twitter?

If Twitter is about “accuracy” then it follows that the company will censor the content that appears on the site, selecting some content over others, effectively making it a PUBLISHER of information.

But previously he was a “free speech absolutist.” By definition the freer the speech the more risk that the speech will be inaccurate.

With his contradictory statements, Musk has already run this company into the ground.

I wonder if that is the point.

“The perverse upshot of the CompuServe and Stratton decisions was that ANY EFFORT BY AN ONLINE INFORMATION PROVIDER TO RESTRICT OR EDIT USER-SUBMITTED CONTENT ON ITS SITE FACED A MUCH HIGHER RISK OF LIABILITY if it failed to eliminate all defamatory material than if it simply didn’t try to control or edit the content of third parties at all.” (Emphasis added.)
