BREAKING: Twitter And Elon Musk Actually Sues A Non-Profit That Tracks Hate Speech On Twitter

Yesterday, I posted a story on Twitter/Elon Musk threatening to sue a non-profit that tracks hate speech on the platform. At the time I said this:

What this is really about is that Elon has been called out in public for not only having hate speech on Twitter, but doing nothing to stop it. What Elon really needs to do is to change course on that. But he’s not going to do that as he’s fine with hate speech being on Twitter. And I suspect that he’s not actually going to sue as he has a track record of threatening to sue, but not actually doing so.

Well, it seems that Elon is actually suing this non-profit. From the Twitter blog:

Despite our continued progress, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) and its backers have been actively working to assert false and misleading claims encouraging advertisers to pause investment on the platform. X is a free public service funded largely by advertisers. Through the CCDH’s scare campaign and its ongoing pressure on brands to prevent the public’s access to free expression, the CCDH is actively working to prevent public dialogue.

Recently Brandwatch made X aware that the CCDH gained access to X’s data without Brandwatch’s authorization, and that the purported CCDH “research” cited in a Bloomberg article “contained metrics used out of context to make unsubstantiated assertions about X (formerly Twitter).” Additionally, the CCDH has recently scraped X’s platform, which is a violation of our terms of service.

That’s why X has filed a legal claim against the CCDH and its backers. X not only rejects all claims made by the CCDH, but, through our own investigation, we have identified several ways in which the CCDH is actively working to prevent free expression. 

This is a joke. Twitter is a cesspool of hate speech under Elon Musk. This isn’t even a question. It’s a fact. If there’s a legal defence fund for this organization, I’ll donate to it. Because Elon Musk needs to be slapped silly in the legal system and shown for what he really is.

  1. […] he never does. But I can see a scenario where he sues the ADL. The reason why I say that is that a non profit group that called him out for hate speech got sued by Elon. Thus he only seems to sue the groups that that have the audacity to hold him accountable for his […]
