After the acquisition of Twitter, Elon Musk will find himself solving many thorny issues related to the platform. One of these, for example, concerns those observers labeled as “media affiliated with the Chinese state”. Apparently, given that Musk has repeatedly called himself an “absolutist of free speech”, now i Chinese media they ask for the platform to move for remove the labels. Otherwise, as reported by the Global Times tabloid, “it’s just another example of a double standard game.”
Twitter: Will Elon Musk Remove Chinese Media Labels?
Elon Musk is grappling with the first requests from Twitter users. In this case, in particular, it is the Chinese media, which kindly requested the removal of the labels on the platform. The question is quite delicate. Mostly because Jeff Bezos “perhaps wanted to thwart the acquisition, in part because Musk’s Tesla was successful in China while Amazon failed to make its way”. So we read in the tabloid “People’s Daily” about the acquisition of Twitter by Musk. And also of the sudden request from Chinese observers.

As reported by Shen Yi, Professor at Fudan University’s School of International Relations and Public Affairs, “criticizing China has become normal, so Bezos’ claims may seem persuasive.” For his part, Musk tried to balance the issues. In a recently posted tweet he said: “I hope that even my worst critics stay on Twitter, because that’s what free speech means.” In his way of him, therefore, he gave hope to Chinese observers. But we still don’t really know what it will do.
