Incitement to violence will result in account suspension

The company, which Musk recently acquired, has long maintained a double-standard when it comes to enforcing its terms of service surrounding hate speech and political violence.
While the red-pilled Musk has sought to make the site more open to all valid political perspectives—reinstating the accounts of conservatives like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and former President Donald Trump, among others—he also has striven to address the actual violations of community standards by left-wing domestic terrorists and other legitimate criminals.
After blogger Paul Ramsey pointed out that Musk has begun to target pedophiles, thereby eliminating many Antifa accounts, Post Millennial editor Andy Ngo chimed in to alert the billionaire Tesla and Spacex founder about some of the other violations from its members.
Ngo—a victim of Antifa’s targeting of gay, Asian, conservative journalists—said an Antifa collective with the handle @crimethinc had used the platform to openly arrange violent riots and spread radical propaganda.
“They’ve claimed a number of attacks & give instructions on how to form cells, what riot gear to bring, etc.,” Ngo wrote.
.@crimethinc, an Antifa collective, makes riot guides, texts to radicalize people into criminal militancy, & propaganda that is shared via Twitter for people to distribute.

Other leftists have likewise been furious at Musk’s efforts to take away their special privileged status on Twitter.
“Elon Musk’s decision to let Trump back on the platform is incredibly upsetting,” one former senior data scientist told Fortune. “We all worked very hard to keep the platform safe for people to use.”
Among those trying to sabotage as part of an organized bot campaign was Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the deep-state Ukraine “expert” who eavesdropped on the Trump administration while working in the White House and colluded with congressional Democrats to state their first attempted impeachment.
Vidman, who relished in his own ability as an unelected bureaucrat to help tarnish the office of the presidency re-posted a partisan message spamming Musk with complaints that he wielded “way too much power.”

Musk then called out Vindman as a “puppet” who was doing the bidding of the shadowy, unknown playcallers on the Left who have routinely tried to undermine U.S. democracy from within.
Vindman is both puppet & puppeteer. Question is who pulls his strings … ?

Musk also revealed recently that Twitter was brimming with psy-ops accounts, the Epoch Times reported.
The amount of pro psy ops on Twitter is ridiculous! At least with new Verified they will pay $8 for the privilege haha.

His post did not specify whether those accounts related to foreign interference from geopolitical rivals like China, or whether they were U.S.-based accounts run in tandem with our own government.
However, he subsequently clarified that they were “mostly basic” accounts rather than professional level psychological warfare tactics.
