Elon Musk Warns of ‘Information War’: ‘They Will Say Anything to Shift Support Away from Me’

Elon Musk has warned that his recent acquisition of Twitter has triggered an “information war” with opponents of free speech.

The anti-woke tech mogul made a surprise appearance on the red carpet at the Met Gala Monday night.

Musk appeared in high spirits and told one reporter he only went because his mother wanted to go.

When he was asked about his recent Twitter purchase, Musk described his plans for the future of the social media platform.

He promised to stamp out censorship and make the platform better and a more inclusive user experience.

“Well, I mean, the goal that I have, should everything come to fruition with Twitter, is to have a service that is broadly, is as broadly inclusive as possible where ideally most of America is on it and talking,” Musk said.

He continued: “I think just generally, I’m looking for something that’s like I said as broadly inclusive as possible, that’s as trusted as possible as a system, and I hope we are successful in that regard.

“I’ve also vowed this publicly that we have to get rid of the bots, trolls, scams, and everything.

“That’s obviously diminishing the user experience and we don’t want people to get tricked out of their money and that kind of thing.

“I’m on the warpath.

“If somebody is operating a bot and troll army then I’m definitely their enemy!”

A Twitter user who identified as a friend to Musk said:

“Supporting Elon Musk, a friend, is not worshiping him.

“I reach out in private and choose not to confront my friends harshly in public.

“I would expect others who care about me to not make a display of me in public either but inform me respectfully in private.”

Musk responded with a swipe at his critics:

“They will say anything to shift support away from me.

“Think of it as information war, not normal dialogue.”
