Turley Attacks Advertisers for Leaving Twitter

It has done everything it can to demolish Twitter from the moment Elon Musk took charge and has Democrats trying to impose the FTC on Musk in the hope of removing Twitter out of the app store, and pressing advertisers to cease advertising on the website.

In the report of NPR -it bases its report in part on Media Matters (so we do not need to ask that issue) approximately fifty of top-rated advertisers no longer advertise on the website.

The majority of the top 100 advertisers on Twitter have stopped advertising on the site. According to a report by Media Matters for America, the top 50 companies have paid nearly $2.5 billion in Twitter advertisements since 2020 plus more than $750 million in 2022.

Seven additional advertisers have reduced their ads to almost nothing according to the report, released on Tuesday. The firms are paying Twitter greater than $255 million as of the year 2020.

Chevrolet, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., Ford, Jeep, Kyndryl, Merck & Co., and Novartis AG all issued statements about the halting of Twitter advertisements or were confirmed and reported as doing the same. The other companies stopped advertising on Twitter for an “significant period of time following direct outreach, controversies, and warnings from media buyers.”

Volkswagen is now part of these businesses, which is bizarre, considering that the fact that they were originally founded by Nazis.

In the same way that George Washington law school professor Jonathan Turley observed, these firms were happy with the way Twitter has censored speeches in the past. They also blocked stories such as that of the Hunter Biden laptop. They did not pull out due to the abuse of children on the platform, something that Musk is now trying to eliminate. However, do they have an issue with freedom of speech?

Turley pointed out that the decisions of the companies were prompted by efforts by those on the left, including an association with Hillary Clinton.

The latest reports suggest the possibility that Clinton is unleashing her friends in the business world to force Musk to reinstate censorship policies or risk bankruptcy. The Clinton-connected “Accountable Tech” reveals the extent of the panic within Democratic circles about the possibility that free speech might be restored on just one Social Media Platform. The group has been open about the possibility that losing control of Twitter could mean the loss of control over the social media overall. For Clinton this could be an “all-hands on deck” call for the censorship of Twitter. She has also called on foreign governments to impose a stifle on the freedom of speech of Americans through Twitter.

We've been discussing how Clinton and others have asked foreign governments to adopt censorship laws in order to block Elon Musk from reinstated free speech rights on Twitter. It appears that after many years of using censorship through intermediaries in social media companies, Democratic leaders seem to have discovered the good old-fashioned state-sponsored theorizing.

Accountable Tech led an effort to write to the top Twitter advertisers in order to pressure Musk to agree to “non-negotiable” requirements for censorship.

Other liberal organizations, which include Media Matters and the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, joined the letter to advertisers.

It's a shame if a business caves in to pressure from leftists to pressure Musk for freedom of speech. It speaks volumes about any of the companies who are in agreement with this. In the future, they could be facing consequences if they lose customers due to it. They're completely free to remove their advertisements and we're totally free to not buy from them. This is why Musk tried to convince us to buy Twitter Blue verification to be unaffected by this pressure, meaning that the platform might be self-sustaining.
