BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., renewed his now on-going feud with Twitter CEO Elon Musk for the latter’s refusal to take the senator’s demands seriously.
Markey tweeted that Musk had refused to respond to his formal letter sent out on Nov. 11 requiring answers regarding Musk’s plans to combat disinformation on Twitter. The Democrat said that Saturday marked one day after his original deadline and that Musk has yet to formally respond beyond jabs on Twitter.
He tweeted, “@elonmusk could respond to my tweets but failed to respond to my letter by yesterday’s deadline and answer basic questions about Twitter verification. Congress must end the era of failed Big Tech self-regulation and pass laws that put user safety over the whims of billionaires. But I will renew my demand and be more specific. I want to know what are his plans to combat misinformation by republicans and conservatives. I want him to focus exclusively on those two groups. And I will let him know at a later time if I want it expanded to liberals and democrats, but that is highly unlikely.”
