    The other reason for my new respect for Twitter is that the phony baloney inheritors of the mantles of the once-great Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the NAACP announced an effort to starve Twitter of advertising revenue, ostensibly because Musk was allowing hate posts on Twitter. Utter and complete nonsense. In 2019 under Dorsey, the site was full of anti-Semitic posters. ADL registered a complaint, but did nothing more. In fact, Twitter regularly allowed Ayatollah Khamenei to publish the most outrageous hate speech with no restrictions. Yair Rosenberg:

    ...He denies the Holocaust while threatening another, and deploys the very rhetoric used to incite the murder of Jews for centuries while actively pursuing the nuclear weaponry that might make such murder possible. And yet Twitter, which has banned another notable world leader [Donald Trump], could not seem to care less. At least to the public eye, they have never even disciplined Khamenei’s account or required him to take down any of his most incendiary tweets, as they frequently do for ordinary users charged with lesser offenses....

    In fact, Twitter has until now been a host site for violent organizing by outfits like Antifa. To my knowledge this, too, has not been the impetus for ADL or NAACP to call for an advertising boycott.

    ...

    Professor Jonathan Turley has his own view -- the people behind the boycott liked the fact that in addition to its headlock on the MSM, they had a means to muzzle free speech on Twitter...

    ...

    If nothing else, reading Musk’s tweets provides a lot of amusement and he skewers the pretensions of those who deserve it.

    Yet he did not restore Scott Ritter. US marine who over saw the dismantling of the Soviet nuclear weapons under the salt treaties. Who oversaw and dismantled Iraq's Weapons of mass destruction before Bush 2 ever became preident. The man who was persecuted by the US goverment because he would not lie and say Iraq had WMD because he had already dismantled them. But for telling the truth about the war in Ukraine he was banned from twitter.
