Musk To Release 'Twitter Files' On Free Speech SuppressionTwitter's owner and CEO Elon Musk

Elon Musk on Tuesday (29 November) said that the files on free speech suppression on Twitter will be soon published on the micro-blogging platform itself.

Twitter has been long criticised for what the platform's critics regard as unfair and obscure standards regarding which accounts are censored or suspended. 

"The public deserves to know what really happened…," Musk tweeted.

In a separate tweet after White House press secretary Katie Jean-Pierre said that the Biden administration is "keeping a close eye" on Twitter, Musk said that his "battle" for free speech is for the future of the civilisation.

"If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead," he said.

Musk had earlier in April defined what he meant by free speech.

“I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask the government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people," Musk had said.
