(Tyler Durden – Zero Hedge) How’s this for interesting timing?
Just days after Elon Musk – a self-described “free speech absolutist” – unveiled a 9.2% stake in Twitter and was rewarded with a seat on the company’s board, eliciting cheers from Republicans and conservatives who have long seen their speech suppressed on the platform, the NYT’s executive editor has reportedly ordered the paper’s army of reporters (many of whom are among the platform’s most closely followed journalists) to reduce the amount of time they spend tweeting.
The order from the NYT comes as Musk has promised to make ‘significant improvements’ to the platform. He had previously opined that the Twitter algorithm should be open source. Conservatives have also used the platform to lobby Musk to reinstate Trump’s twitter account.
Citing an internal memo, Business Insider reports that NYT Executive Editor Dean Baquet on Thursday ordered his staff to consider a Twitter “reset”, and that using the platform is now “purely optional” for its journalists.
