Elon Musk Caves To NAACP

Tech giant and new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, is giving the NAACP what they want.

"Elon Musk has agreed to restore Twitter content moderation tools that had been blocked for some workers by the end of the week, according to leaders of leftist groups including the ADL and NAACP who met with Musk eager to expand censorship on the platform," reported Breitbart.

"Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk recently promised civil rights leaders that he will restore access to content moderation tools that some staff had been locked out of by the end of the week," Bloomberg reports.

Musk Caves To NAACP

"During a Zoom meeting with the heads of some of the country’s leading leftist organizations, including the NAACP, Color of Change, and the ADL, Musk committed to restoring access to the tools," reports Breitbart.

"Civil rights organizations raised worries about Musk’s plan to eliminate censorship on the platform and restore the accounts of users who had been expelled," according to Breitbart.

According to Bloomberg, "Twitter recently limited the number of people with access to the dashboard of tools that the Trust and Safety team utilizes to enforce policy actions."

"Following Musk’s recent announcement that Twitter would be unbanning a number of blacklisted users, he has since stated that they won’t be allowed to return to the platform for 'at least a few more weeks,' or in other words, until after the midterm elections have passed," reported Breitbart.

"ADL representative Yael Eisenstadt, Jessica Gonzalez, the head of digital rights group Free Press, and Rashad Robinson, the president of Color of Change, who were present at the meeting, said that Musk agreed with their concerns about speech on the platform and would work with them," reported Breitbart.

"Musk, the sole Twitter representative on the virtual call, said he would create speech policies to protect 'disadvantaged communities' and make the reasoning behind decisions to restore accounts of individuals who have been barred from the platform more transparent — without mentioning former President Donald Trump by name," reported Breitbart.
