Washington Post Launches Disgusting Attack on Twitter After Elon Musk Takes the Helm

The left has been engaging in wild histrionics after it became official that Elon Musk is now the owner of Twitter. Progressives have been scrambling to concoct a strategy in response to this development, which many believe will result in the end of the social media company’s biased censorship practices.


On Friday, the day after the deal became official, the Washington Post posted a thread on Twitter linking to a previous article informing readers on how they can change their privacy settings on the app. “Your tweets may be public, but you can still have more privacy on the social media service,” the first tweet explained.

Seems pretty innocuous, right? However, the next tweet reveals the activist media outlet’s true aim:

If you do only one thing, lock down ad settings.

Twitter is free because it makes its money on advertising and access to data about its hundreds of millions of users. There are a few quick settings you can change to limit some of this activity.

That’s right. The Washington Post is attacking Twitter by encouraging its 19.9 million followers to limit advertisements, which is the company’s primary source of revenue. The thread continued:

If you want to be extra cautious, deleting old tweets is great advice. (“Never tweet” is always an excellent option, as well.)

Twitter doesn’t have a built-in feature for deleting on a schedule, so you’ll need a third-party tool.


Not only is The Post trying to limit Twitter’s ad revenue, it even made a pathetic, but subtle, attempt to persuade its followers not to tweet. This will be one of many attacks the activist media will be launching against the platform now that Musk is at the helm. To them, Twitter is now the enemy.

Progressives can’t abide a social media site that allows conservative voices to be displayed without biased censorship. It will only be a matter of time before they escalate their offensive against Musk. In fact, it would not be surprising to see the government get involved in the effort against the company. If the GOP retakes Congress, it will make it more difficult to weaponize the state. But with Biden in control of the White House, we can expect to see action coming from the executive branch.
