(LifeSiteNews) – Elon Musk has purchased Twitter after contentious negotiations, thereby transforming the tech giant into a private company.
Twitter announced the sale today, with Musk paying $54.20 per share, approximately $44 billion in total. The news comes after two weeks of back and forth between Twitter and Musk’s negotiation team.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reinstate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021.
After contentious negotiations, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has purchased Twitter, thereby transforming the tech giant into a private company.
A self-styled "free speech absolutist," Mr. Musk's entrepreneurial spirit may define his approach to governing Twitter, where, in the marketplace of ideas, the best ideas - not those aided by censorship - will naturally prevail among the competition.
Of course, there are limits to free speech. But, for too long, Big Tech giants (including, Twitter, Google, YouTube and Facebook) have subjected their conservative and Christian users to all forms of censorship, desperately trying to silence our voices.
So if, as it seems, Mr. Musk will level the playing field for conservatives and Christians and allow a true exchange of ideas to occur on his platform, then we look forward to our chance to re-engage on Twitter.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reactivate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021. They are:
These accounts have been blocked by the outgoing Twitter regime for more than a year for calling a ‘transgender woman’ (Assistant Secretary of Health, 'Rachel' Levine), a man, and for tweeting an article about the same person.
The article we tweeted makes mention of the troubling paradox of having a person who denies the basic science of the human anatomy be in an authoritative position in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), but does not cast aspersions or any other such “hate speech” against Levine, according to Twitter’s "rules."
It is our fervant hope that Mr. Musk intends to allow - rather than censor - our descriptions of reality as we know them to be true in regards to human sexuality, as well as in other areas of life.
Mr. Musk evidently understands how significant freedom of speech is to the functioning of a free society as he was quoted as saying that this deal is important for "the future of civlization."
LifeSiteNews believes that being able to spread the truth in charity is absolutely vital for the future of society, as the "truth shall make you free." (Jn 8:32)
And so, in order for us to charitably spread the truth far and wide, we now seek to re-engage on Twitter's public square.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition to Elon Musk, urging him to now reinstate LifeSiteNews' suspended Twitter accounts.

In an effort to thwart the purchase maneuver by Musk it was rumored that Twitter would employ a “poison pill” tactic. However, that tactic was abandoned.
Musk is the world’s wealthiest person according to Forbes, with an almost $279 billion fortune.
In the lead up to the Twitter purchase, Musk tweeted his ideas a number of times to his more than 80 million followers, about what he might do if he purchased the company.
He joked about defeating “the spam bots or die trying!”
If our twitter bid succeeds, we will defeat the spam bots or die trying!

He also posted various polls about what users might want, such as an “edit” option for tweets with mistakes.

News of Musk’s Twitter takeover has sparked leftist outrage at the fact that a “free speech absolutist” would have influence over what happens on the platform.
