Social media platforms, including Twitter, have made increasing efforts to moderate content. Elon Musk, the multi-billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has been a vocal public critic of Twitter’s content moderation efforts. This complaint was a driving force behind his decision to acquire the social media company this year. Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter has immense consequences all around the world.

Joining us today to discuss the global chaos following Elon Musk’s Twitter acquisition is Professor David Kaye, clinical professor of law at the University of California, Irvine, and the former United Nations Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression.
