Real life Tony Stark, Elon Musk, has purchased Twitter for $44 billion. He has been making changes for weeks amid a battle for free speech and has consistently stated that free speech has been a rare commodity in the history of civilization.

According to Business Insider:

The revelation about Baker’s firing comes as journalist Matt Taibbi, who writes the substack newsletter TK News, tweeted a supplemental note to his original “Twitter Files” thread, accusing Baker of allegedly vetting the information before it was passed along without informing Twitter’s new management.

Musk published the Twitter Files with help of reporter Matt Taibbi, which introduces us to details about information suppression regarding the Hunter Biden Laptop scandal.

Business Insider continues:

Baker’s firing comes a little more than one month since Musk took over as the new owner of Twitter. Upon taking control, Musk immediately fired Twitter’s upper management, including CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and general counsel Sean Edgett. 

Yahoo Finance adds:

The “Twitter Files,” which were tweeted by Taibbi on Friday with the approval of Musk, revealed some of the inner workings of Twitter’s content moderation practices, including the supposed suppression of a 2020 story about President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Musk is arguably the most influential person in the world, fighting for your free speech rights. His first move was giving the public information that has been kept secret, and James Barker had overstepped boundaries.

Taibbi has alluded to expose more “Twitter Files” information in collaboration with journalist Bari Weiss, a former op-ed writer for The New York Times. Taibbi added more context to the original story, tweeting his own Twitter thread called “Twitter Files Supplemental.”
