    Elon Musk is now reportedly in charge of Twitter as the sale of the company has now been finalized and the company's top executives are no longer with the company.

    Musk fired CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and Vijaya Gadde, head of legal policy, trust, and safety, The Washington Post reported. The report said Musk also fired the company's general counsel, Sean Edgett.

    Business Insider reported that Musk's acquisition of the company was finalized Thursday evening as the company's stock was purchased for $54.20 per share in a deal worth $44 billion.

    The news comes as Musk visited the company's San Francisco headquarters this week, bringing a sink with him the first day.

    "Entering Twitter HQ - let that sink in!" Musk tweeted.

    Musk changed his Twitter bio to "Chief Twit" and changed his location to "Twitter HQ."

    Musk released a statement earlier in the day explaining why he wanted to buy Twitter.

    "I wanted to reach out personally to share my motivation in acquiring Twitter," Musk wrote. "There has been much speculation about why I bought Twitter and what I think about advertising. Most of it has been wrong."

    "The reason I acquired Twitter is because it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence," Musk continued. "There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right wing and far left wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society."

    "In the relentless pursuit of clicks, much of traditional media has fueled and catered to those polarized extremes, as they believe that is what brings in the money, but, in doing so, the opportunity for dialogue is lost," Musk continued. "That is why I bought Twitter. I didn't do it because it would be easy. I didn't do it to make more money. I did it to try to help humanity, whom I love. And I do so with humility, recognizing that failure in pursuing this goal, despite our best efforts, is a very real possibility."

    "That said, Twitter obviously cannot become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences!" Musk concluded. "In addition to

    adhering to the laws of the land, our platform must be warm and welcoming to all, where you can choose your desired experience according to your preferences, just as you can choose, for example, to see movies or play video games ranging from all ages to mature."

Where do you stand on the wanton censorship by Big Tech Platforms, while retaining their Section 230 carveout indemnifying them for Slander /Defamation lawsuits and Copyright infringements?
  Big Tech Platforms have the right to Censor all speech providing they voluntarily relinquish their Section 230 Carveout.
  Big Tech Platforms DO NOT have the right to Censor any speech, while retaining multiple indemnifications by virtue of the Section 230 Carveout.
  I know nothing of this 230 talk, but "I do love me some social media".

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
