‘Elon flexes his muscles’: Amul pulls Tesla boss ‘offer to take over Twitter’

US billionaire Elon Musk’s move to buy microblogging site Twitter seems to have become the subject of Amul’s latest topical ad. On Saturday, the dairy product manufacturing company shared a sketch of Elon Musk holding a cage, in which he pointed to a blue bird, prompting Twitter to enter it. Sharing the cartoon on its social media platform, Amul added in the caption, “Billionaire launches hostile bid to take over Twitter.”

“Elon flexes his muscles,” read the world drama on the image.

Musk offered to buy the social media company for $43 billion. It should be noted that Musk uses Twitter a lot and some of his tweets have even influenced the fall or rise in the value of cryptocurrencies, a phenomenon known as the “Musk Effect”. Last year, the Tesla CEO tweeted about the meme-cryptocurrency Dogecoin quite a few times. On September 13, 2021, Musk posted a tweet featuring a photo of his new puppy: Floki. Immediately after the tweet was shared, Dogecoin recorded a +0.36% change in 24 hours, with an increase in price, at the same time that Musk posted the tweet at 3:50 AM (GMT +5:30).

However, Musk is also known to harass politicians such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who have raised their voices against neoliberal policies and demanded that the SpaceX founder pay more taxes.

In his recent offer to buy the microblogging site, Musk mentioned that if he were to own Twitter, he would end its current program of content monitoring and censoring. This is one of the problematic points according to those who oppose the move, given how Twitter is already trying to curb hate speech and propaganda used by celebrities, governments and trolls around the world. is fighting for.

The offer received a mixed response from Twitter users.

As one user tweeted his response, “Elon Musk wants free speech for all. Translation: Musk wants hate speech with no consequence. ,

American television personality Carol Roth tweeted, “If Elon Musk takes over I’m going to leave Twitter.

Musk’s recent move also became a topic of discussion on the American comedy show Saturday Night Live, where presenter Michael Che joked, “Elon Musk offered to buy Twitter so he could loosen its free speech rules, like this White people want to use the N word.”
