Step back / Bigger picture
Step back from cliff face of the "out-rage internet" and look at how various players are reacting to what is going on.
Elon Musk does tend to generate attention and controversy and I'm really not sure that I'd like to work for him. However, I'm not super worried about how he's handling twitter, but we'll we need time to see how it goes. *If* his intentions of having something more balanced, but with some censorship for bad stuff (genuine hate speech, CP, pile-ons, etc) are true, then I think the changes will ultimately be good for the everyone.
I'm not entirely surprised that they've reacted badly, because they've been caught asking for people to be censored. I expect that from my own government (UK) as they think over-censorship is good because they view us all as children.
This is far more serious for the U.S. from a stated-aims/cultural perspective, i.e. freedom of speech and all that. Although this seems to have primarily been Democrat (because of the political slant of twiter emplyees), the Repulicans did this as well. As such, both sides need public condemnation, even if they've skirted breaking U.S. law. Perhaps a new law is needed to make political censorship on "public space" platforms illegal. Something for discussion.
This is the worrying one. Most media have slammed Elon Musk with what can only be described as hit pieces. That's not to say that some points made aren't valid - some are very valid - but they also don't make any effort to try and present (steel man) Elon Musk's perspective. I'm not a conspiracy guy, but to me it's very, very plain that there is some consensus going on between media companies of how this is covered. Even to people who really dislike Elon Musk, that should be concerning. This is particularly true of the "Twitter Files", for which there seems to be a stunning silence from media companies about - even if it's just to rip it apart.
Those working at media companies need to make up their minds if they want to be journalists or activists - and I include the right side of the isle in that as well.
