Because some of those people report "upsetting" posts to mods and accounts get suspended. And, politically speaking, it generally goes in only one direction.

Prior to 2016, Twitter was a more anarchic free-for-all.
That's an easy fix. The offended party should be blocked from reading anything further written by the poster of the upsetting material, including retweets, not block the poster.

You have no right not to be offended. It is impossible to stop people saying and doing things that someone will find offensive. There will always be someone. There are people out there who take offence by proxy, usually the activists and 'awareness raisers' - a.k.a. shit stirrers.

People who seek out people or material they find offensive, and then complain about it, only have themselves to blame.
All good points.

Not really how much of the internet or even society seems to operate.

Elon Musk's US Securities and Exchange Commission filing for Twitter includes billion dollar investments each from both Saudi Arabia and Qatar to support the $44B takeover. Now those are 2 bastions of free speech.

Makes you wonder why the richest man in the world would want investors in the first place.

Good point. $44B is still a lot even if you are the richest and he is clever enough not to risk $44B of his own money on one social media company, especially with Trumpy starting a competitor (just kidding!!!). Maybe he is the richest but not the cash-richest?

Musk isn't "buying" Twitter for $44bn, he's making a $44bn investment.

Twitter at the end of trading today has a market capitalization of $38.1B. Musk is putting forth $44B. And he is not buying control of the company? Please enlighten us.

Twitter's market cap is only that high because Musk is making this offer. Many other tech stocks are going south in a big hurry especially with the recent 0.5% hike in interest rates, but Twitter still hovers in defiance of gravity at around $50.

If Musk pulled out what would it go down to? $30? I bet Twitter's shareholders are very keen for him to close the deal.
