Elon Musk’s $44 billion takeovers of Twitter has prompted visceral reactions across the political spectrum.

Elon is pretty straightforward with his main intention behind buying one of the biggest platforms in human history. After the announcement, there were already several celebrities who oppose this takeover but what about the politicians? Naturally, there are an important number of leftist democrats who will always try to criticize billionaires and oligarchs.

Because twitter’s future under Musk will bring about the downward spiral liberals fear. Musk himself has repeatedly stated that the left has been hijacked by extremists.

Musk has already insinuated that Twitter has a “left-wing bias,” he said that most on Twitter are increasingly liberal.

And the Tesla CEO a self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist,” just ripped another blow to the left, this comes as Musk shocked the internet by announcing that his multi-billion deal to acquire Twitter was on hold.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Friday that the proposal to buy Twitter had been put “temporarily on hold” after the social media platform revealed that fraudulent or spam accounts accounted for fewer than 5% of its 226 million monetizable daily active users. Therefore, five percent of those users would amount to 11.45 million.

On Friday morning, Musk tweeted, Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users.”

The SpaceX founder later followed up by saying that he doesn’t plan to back out of the deal, although it looks like he might be trying to get a discount on his Twitter acquisition. On Saturday, he took to Twitter to joke about “owning the libs.”

Musk knows that his tweets have a tendency of riling people up, and that was probably his intention behind his latest tweets. “Whoever thought owning the libs would be cheap never tried to acquire a social media company!” he tweeted on Saturday.

He later followed it up with, “At least, that’s what the lib hivemind thinks haha.”
