Elon Musk is buying Twitter. Do Vermont social media users care?
Elon Musk is buying Twitter. The billionaire entrepreneur says free speech is motivating his purchase. This hour, we talk with a CNN reporter about the Twitter sale and discuss the role social media plays in our lives today and if the sale matters to Vermont social media users.
Part of why the Twitter thing feels like such a big deal is because it directly embodies several unresolved societal dialogues: About the power of billionaires, how tech should be regulated, and what voluntary expectations should govern digital speech https://t.co/yoyr9JQDf7— Brian Fung (@b_fung) April 26, 2022
