Okay, some of these are too good.

Quick 🧵 of the wackiest @elonmusk potentially buying Twitter takes vs. what those folks had to say when Twitter booted President Trump. ⤵️

From Twitter is a private company “to which the 1st Amendment doesn’t apply” to “this is what oligarchy looks like” in the twinkling of an eye.

Live by the tweets, die by the tweets, @mmpadellan.

We sure went quickly from Twitter can do “whatever it wants to” because “that is its freedom of expression” to living in “the last evening in a Berlin nightclub at the twilight of Weimar Germany,” @jeffjarvis.

My personal favorite: Schrodinger’s private corporation. When it does something @maxboot likes, it can’t be questioned.

But when it goes against Boot? Cue political outrage.

I…don’t really have anything to add to this from @David_Leavitt
