Here is a statement released from Twitter and Elon Musk "Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated. I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it." (PR Newswire)
Since the purchase, 72% of Republicans in congress gained mass amounts of followers in 24 hours. (USA Today)
Jim Jordan: +160,650
Marjorie Taylor Green: +150,078
