Leftists around the world are having meltdowns after news broke this week that SpaceX, Tesla and Starlink founder and CEO Elon Musk managed to successfully purchase Twitter, the second-biggest social media platform in the U.S.
That’s because they know conservatives have been right all along: The platform has been shadow banning and reducing the reach of their posts and content when the Stalinists who run it weren’t suspending or completely banning others.
But it’s not just the platform’s leftist loser users who are having meltdowns: Twitter staffers are as well, and that includes, apparently, the company’s top lawyer, according to a report in Politico.
The outlet noted:
Shortly after billionaire Elon Musk bought the powerful social media platform, top Twitter lawyer Vijaya Gadde called a virtual meeting with the policy and legal teams she oversees to discuss what the new ownership could mean for them.
Gadde cried during the meeting as she expressed concerns about how the company could change, according to three people familiar with the meeting. She acknowledged that there are significant uncertainties about what the company will look like under Musk’s leadership.
A spokesman for the platform, Trenton Kennedy, confirmed the incident, saying that the attorney become upset and emotional when discussing the impact her team had on the platform and how proud of them she was (for banning and censoring conservatives). It should also be noted that Gadde played a lead role in banning then-President Donald Trump over the lie that he “incited insurrection” regarding the false flag attack on the U.S. Capitol Building in January 2021.
Politico, citing sources at the platform, went on to report that Gedde “spoke at length about how she is proud of the work her team has done and offered employees encouragement, urging them to keep striving to do good work at the company.”
A Twitter lawyer since 2011, Gadde is the principal executive who is in charge of managing Twitter’s ‘trust and safety’ issues along with her legal and public policy duties. Inside the company, she is viewed as the platform’s “moral authority” and is in charge of dealing with issues like ‘dangerous’ speech and ‘harassment’ — which, of course, has been meted out unevenly and almost always in favor of leftists to the detriment of conservatives.
“Gadde played a leading role in negotiating the deal between Twitter and Musk, according to one person familiar with the dynamics,” Politico reported.
First, Twitter employees and left-wing users freaked out when billionaire Musk became Twitter’s largest shareholder, buying up some 9.2 percent of available stock. Then, when he refused to take a board position because it would limit him to owning just 14 percent of the company stock and decided instead to make a full-on bid to buy the platform, the anxiety skyrocketed among staffers.
“I think everyone at Twitter, regardless of how they feel about the news, is feeling reflective and emotional,” one Twitter employee told Politico. “We’ve gone through a lot in the past two years and I think it’s generally instigated a lot of reflection. I think this was more of an acknowledgment of the uncertainty everyone is feeling right now.”
A lot — as in, the banning of conservatives and the censoring of very important election-related stories like burying reports by the New York Post on Hunter Brandon’s laptop and then locking the country’s oldest newspaper out of its Twitter account for weeks after the election.
The fact is, Elon Musk — whether his political leanings are right, left, or somewhere in the middle — wants to reimagine Twitter in the manner in which it was designed: To be the 21st century’s electronic town hall, where all ideas can be debated and all voices that are not threatening can be heard.
Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate

The fact that many within Twitter’s ranks, as well as the leftists using the platform, are angry and concerned about that tells you who they really are: Authoritarians.
