A reminder to the world and Elon Musk: We survived without twitter before, we can do it again
PBS has not tweeted from its main Twitter handle since April 8, following Elon Musk’s decision to label the outlet “government-funded news.” PBS joins NPR, another major editorially independent outlet that receives some government funding, in halting its Twitter activity in light of the new label. Twitter added a “government-funded” label to PBS’ main Twitter account last weekend, a spokesperson confirmed. “We did stop tweeting at that point as soon as we discovered it,” a PBS spokesperson confirmed. “We have no plans to resume tweeting.”
Now that PBS has stated they won’t tweet, Elon Musk and Marjorie Taylor Greene has called for a halt to all their Federal funding.
Which begs to call into question why Elon Musk’s companies have received billions in government subsidies over the last two decades?
Nazi Republican way for you.
Guess they won’t mind losing Federal funding in that case 🤷♂️— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 12, 2023
