Twitter CEO made a new announcement about the way Twitter will handle posts about science, leading to strong responses from users.
Musk shared the tweet on Wednesday that noted the questioning of scientific views will be allowed.

"New Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science," Musk wrote.
Tom Fitton, whose account was recently restored on Twitter, commented that the change will be "bad news" for some on the left.
"Bad news for transgender extremism, covid totalitarians, and climate alarmists," he wrote.

NASA Earth Cartography and Data Visualization lead Joshua Stevens tweeted, "This is fair and reasonable. And if any scientist tells you otherwise, never let them wax poetic about curiosity and wonder ever again."
The noise concerning the new policy shift at Twitter continued to reinforce Musk's plans to make the company a free speech platform where various views can be discussed.
Those opposing the move are unsurprisingly those who are strongly liberal and have been against many of Musk's recent moves to limit censorship at Twitter.
The move is in addition to a recent change on Twitter that also noted that it would not be enforcing its previous COVID-19 misinformation policy.
Musk's changes are welcomed by freedom-loving Americans, but there continue to be some who cannot handle allowing multiple viewpoints for all.
