Elon Musk changes his Twitter bio, gives himself hilarious 4-word new title

If billionaire Elon Musk’s behind-the-scenes activity at Twitter has been anything like his level of engagement on the newly privatized social media platform, the entrepreneur has been busy addressing the rampant concerns regarding censorship and the elections that keep pouring in; so much so that he already dropped the title “Chief Twit” for something more apt.

Despite the seeming free-for-all of free speech on Twitter since Musk officially took charge, he has stated that new content policies have yet to be enacted. Along those lines, a wide array of public figures have tagged him in posts asking when specific, previously banned accounts would be reinstated such as The Babylon Bee, Project Veritas, Drs. Peter McCullough and Robert Malone, and former President Donald Trump.

To that end, Musk posted late Tuesday, “Twitter will not allow anyone who was de-platformed for violating Twitter rules back on platform until we have a clear process for doing so, which will take at least a few more weeks.”

He went on to specify, “Twitter’s content moderation council will include representatives with widely divergent views, which will certainly include the civil rights community and groups who face hate-fueled violence.”

The update was tacked on as a reply to Twitter’s head of safety and integrity Yoel Roth who had shared a report of six networks that had been suspended from the platform for allegedly attempting to influence the midterm election. Roth wrote, “We’re staying vigilant against attempts to manipulate conversations about the 2022 US midterms. Read on for independent analysis of our teams’ work.

The Nov. 1 report from the non-partisan Election Integrity Partnership (EIP) stated, “On October 26, 2022, Twitter released six datasets to the Twitter Moderation Research Consortium, consisting of six distinct inauthentic networks with technical links to China and Iran that had tweeted about the United States’ November 2022 midterm elections.”

The networks were listed as 10Votes, the Conservative #LeadFromWithin network, EvenPolitics, Florida Anti-Rubio Network, Follow Back Resistance and the Pro-China Network.

“The content put out by five of the six networks focused primarily on U.S. politics, and particularly the midterm elections slated for November 8, 2022,” the EIP said. “The sixth focused on a litany of geopolitical issues including the Russia-Ukraine war and America’s foreign policy on China, with some scattered commentary on the midterms.”

Messages from the networks ranged from promoting Democratic candidates in key races across the country to pro-Trump sentiments that raised concerns over the 2020 presidential election.

“We hope that this assessment of inauthentic activity on Twitter offers useful visibility into the tactics of incentivized foreign parties who wish to influence the American political discourse, particularly around elections,” EIP concluded and added, “Despite the comparatively small number of engagements that these networks achieved, operations such as these reinforce that foreign interference is ongoing, and that platform integrity teams working alongside researchers to find, assess, and disrupt these manipulative operations remains critical to stopping them while they are still small.”

As Musk engaged directly with users responding to a myriad of suggestions and issues, his bio was updated from “Chief Twit” to “Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator.” Following that, his profile picture was changed from his entrance into Twitter HQ carrying a sink to a child on the telephone.

Another key issue that Musk has been working to address has been the verification process and, after it appeared the plan was to initiate a $20 monthly charge to obtain a blue check, it seemed more likely that the current $4.99 for Twitter Blue’s subscription, offering premium features like an edit button, would be raised to $8 per month with an as yet undetermined list of advantages for subscribers.

In the interim, the billionaire did suggest that his continued engagement with individuals might be reliant on their paying the fee before he admitted that the idea was not his own, but derived from a Monty Python skit.

“To all complainers, please continue complaining, but it will cost $8,” Musk wrote, adding, “Totally stole idea of charging for insults & arguments from Monty Python [to be honest].”
