After it was revealed that red-pilled tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has bought a staggering 9.2% in Twitter, the move has been hailed as a "game-changer" in the fight against censorship.

Tesla CEO Musk has been openly critical of Twitter's attacks against free speech.

He had been hinting at a bold move by recently calling for Twitter to make its algorithm open source.

He also held polls to ask users if they felt Twitter respected their First Amendment rights.

Many beleived he was planning to launch his own social media platform to rival Twitter.

However, it was revealed on Monday that Musk has bought enough shares in Twitter to become its largest shareholder, giving him four times as much of the company as its own founder Jack Dorsey.

Many have rushed to celebrate the news online, with Twitter share prices skyrocketing 25% on the news.

Olympic medalist Sharron Davies, a female swimmer-turned women’s rights activist who is outspoken about transgender athletes, posted that the news is a “Game changer.”

Conservative host Liz Wheeler created a “to-do list” for Musk.

“Buy all of it,” she wrote as Musk’s first task, adding:

  • "End shadowbanning. 
  • Open source curating of trends. 
  • Stop ‘misinformation’ warnings. 
  • Don’t ban science (gender & covid). 
  • Reinstate Alex Berenson, Dr. Robert Malone, Pres Trump & Babylon Bee
  • Commit to FREE SPEECH.” 

“If Musk helps restore [Twitter] to its free speech roots and moves it away from its left-wing censorship regime, it will be perhaps the most heroic and public-serving action I have seen a billionaire take in my lifetime,” wrote Claremont Institute senior fellow Jeremy Carl.

“Elon Musk and like-minded, free speech supporting billionaires buying a controlling stake in Twitter is the only plausible ‘market-based’ solution to censorship on the platform,” Will Chamberlain said.

“Elon Musk has just taken a 9.2% stake in Twitter. Watch them sweat!!!,” Rebel News’ Avi Yemini reacted.

Musk recently teased a shakeup at Twitter, or possible plans to build a new social media platform that promotes free speech.

Last month, the Tesla CEO asked his followers to vote in a poll about free speech and Twitter’s adherence to it, emphasizing that the “consequences of this poll will be important.”

“Free speech is essential to a functioning democracy. Do you believe Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle?” the 50-year-old asked.

“The consequences of this poll will be important. Please vote carefully.”

When the poll came back to show that more than 70% of the 2,000,000-plus who voted answered “No,” Musk teased creating a new platform of his own.

“Given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy. What should be done?” he asked.

“Is a new platform needed?”

The next day, the entrepreneur said he was giving “serious thought” to building a new platform with “an open source algorithm,” promoting free speech.

“Would you consider building a new social media platform, [Elon Musk]?” one Twitter user asked.

“One that would consist an open source algorithm, one where free speech and adhering to free speech is given top priority, one where propaganda is very minimal.

"I think that kind of a platform is needed.”

“Am giving serious thought to this,” Musk responded.
