The extreme, left-wing socialists who work at Twitter freaked out after Elon Musk bought into the company. They panicked even more when the board invited him to join. But they become downright suicidal when he rejected their office and instead took over the company.
The days of Twitter using its power to censor, bully, and silence conservatives are rapidly coming to an end. In the time between now and Musk’s official takeover, we will be seeing changes coming to the embattled social network. And it seems they will be for the better.
Because two top liberals are already out.
Two of the top leaders at Twitter are no longer with the company as the social media platform begins to make changes ahead of Elon Musk’s expected arrival at the company as its new CEO after his $44 billion purchase of the company is finalized…
“The truth is that this isn’t how and when I imagined leaving Twitter, and this wasn’t my decision,” Beykpour said in a statement on Twitter. “Parag asked me to leave after letting me know that he wants to take the team in a different direction.”

Reports suggest the executives simply left. But Beykpour is letting the cat out of the bag, saying the current CEO asked him to leave. Parag claimed he wanted “to take the team in a different direction.” Which is code for, “the CEO is terrified Musk will dump him too, so he’s getting rid of the worst people first.”
Musk has an aggressive plan for expanding Twitter. He wants to hire many more people who can improve the technology behind the social platform. But it looks like a reported 1,000 employees will be ditched. I can promise you most of them will be its current censors.
The innovator seems to have big goals for the social network. Twitter once boasted roughly 300 million active users. Today, there are only about 217 million users, active or otherwise. Twitter went through a dying period, post-2016, where there seemed to be more bots using the site than actual humans. Even as Facebook exceeded 1 billion users, Twitter languished, largely thanks to it leadership’s lack of vision and ability.
That is all poised to change, once Musk takes over. He wants 600 million users by 2025 and an ambitious 931 million in six years. Can that be accomplished? Well, anything’s possible. But there is no way Twitter can hit those numbers without serious changes to its content policies. Unless Musk can make good on his vow to protect free speech, Twitter will remain dead.
