When Elon Musk purchased Twitter, he vowed to make it a free speech platform for the entire world.
But Musk may be having a change of heart.
And Elon Musk just put out a call for job applicants that left proponents of free speech scratching their heads.
Democrats and the left-wing media erupted into a frenzy when Elon Musk purchased Twitter and put an end to censorship on the popular social media platform.
Musk also released the Twitter Files, which revealed how former executives at the company colluded with government officials to censor speech that they did not like.
The Twitter Files showed how Big Tech worked with the FBI to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story and help Joe Biden win the Presidential election.
It also revealed how the federal government worked with Big Tech during the pandemic to censor anyone who opposed Fauci’s official COVID narrative.
But now many free-speech advocates are growing concerned that Musk is going back on his promise to keep the platform free of censorship.
X, formerly known as Twitter, is currently hiring two individuals to fill positions on its threat disruption team.
The company is seeking applicants who are “passionate about protecting users from global disinformation” and “helping people find credible information online.”
Qualified applicants need to also “have a deep understanding of geopolitical, disinformation, and cybersecurity trends.”
“Critics quickly flagged the jobs as ‘censorship positions,’ and social media users pointed out the accounts team leader Aaron Rodericks follows on rival platform BlueSky, which former State Department cyber official Mike Benz referred to as ‘every high-level spook & censorship industry heavyweight in the world,’” Breitbart reported. “The accounts Rodericks is following reportedly include leaders of anti-disinformation groups that worked closely with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).”
Many X users were quick to call out Elon Musk for going back on his word.
“This is how self-sabotaging Linda’s new crop of censorship shills are of their own company:
Aaron Rodericks, who is hiring the new censorship squad at X, promotes his account on Bluesky (the ‘Twitter-killer’ made by Dorsey after Musk took over!) in his own friggin bio,” Foundation for Freedom Online Executive Director Mike Benz wrote.

Only time will tell if Elon Musk goes back on his word and allows censorship ahead of the 2024 election.
