    Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/Getty Images The American Civil Liberties Union put out a statement Tuesday in which the group applauded Elon Musk for saying he will reinstate former President Donald Trump‘s account if he successfully purchases Twitter. In a statement attributed to ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero, the organization said: You’d be hard-pressed to find a more steadfast opponent of Trump and his policies than the ACLU, but Elon Musk’s decision to re-platform President Trump is the right call. When a handful of individuals possess so much power over the most important forums for political speech, they should exercise that power with restraint. If Trump violates the platform rules again, Twitter should first employ lesser penalties like removing the offending post — rather than banning a political figure. Like it or not, President Trump is one of the most important political figures in this country, and the public has a strong interest in hearing his speech. Indeed, some of Trump’s most offensive tweets ended up being critical evidence in lawsuits filed against him and his administration. And we should know...
    Patrick Pleul/Getty Images Twitter ranged from lament to celebration in response to Elon Musk’s suggestion that, were he to complete the acquisition of Twitter, he would allow former President Donald Trump back onto the platform. “I think it was a morally bad decision to be clear and foolish in the extreme,” said Musk at the Financial Times’ Future of the Car event. “I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake. Because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice,” he added. “I guess the answer is I would reverse the perma-ban.” Trump was banned from the platform two days after the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol. At the time, Twitter explained that Trump was banned for inciting the violence of that day in the weeks preceding it. Still, the former president has said that even if he were allowed back on Twitter, he would not return and would instead remain on his own platform, TRUTH Social. Many on...
    Thousands of disgruntled Twitter users have been flocking to rival social network Mastodon in response to Elon Musk's takeover announcement. The platform, which is often seen as an alternative to Twitter, gained nearly 30,000 new users on the day the Tesla billionaire had his $44 billion (£34.5 billion) offer for the microblogging site accepted. It also led to a number of 'woke warriors', Left-wing organisations and Musk's business rivals threatening to quit Twitter, although the vast majority are yet to delete their accounts. The influx of new users caused a problem for Mastodon, with the domain becoming unresponsive on Tuesday.   Thousands of disgruntled Twitter users have been flocking to rival social network Mastodon in response to Elon Musk's takeover announcement WHAT IS MASTODON?  Mastodon is not a single website like Twitter but a network of users in independent communities that can set up their own guidelines. Although its appearance is similar to Twitter, the decentralised social network actually holds more similarities with Discord, in that users have to find specific Mastodon instances to join.   It was launched in 2017 for Twitter users sick...

Gavin Newsom's principal economic advisor Dee Dee Williams revealed during a press call with several news outlets when asked if the state had received any advanced notice of Musk's plans, Bloomberg reported after taking part in the call Tuesday afternoon.   'We later talked to the leadership in his offices in California, who did not know until he made that announcement,' Myers then confirmed.

    Tesla CEO Elon Musk is lowering the price of one of his company's vehicles to a number that will leave some laughing and others wincing. Musk lowered the price of a Tesla Model S sedan from above $70,000 to $69,420, he said Wednesday. "The gauntlet has been thrown down!" Musk wrote. "The prophecy will be fulfilled. Model S price changes to $69,420 tonight!" The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled.

    Tesla’s “Battery Day” event, held on September 22nd, 2020, was a showcase for Elon Musk to show off his company’s latest battery improvements. Tesla unveiled plans to develop a “million mile” battery that could last an electric car’s entire lifetime on the road. It also outlined plans to dramatically reduce the cost of its battery cells and packs to $100 per kilowatt-hour, at which point experts believe electric cars will become comparable in price to combustion engine vehicles. Tesla is already the industry leader when it comes to squeezing range out of lithium-ion batteries in electric cars, but its ability to continue to innovate on its battery technology helps explain why the company’s stock prices have soared in recent months.
