Elon Musk responded to Project Veritas’ latest undercover Twitter exposé amid his bid to buy the tech platform.
Project Veritas on Monday released undercover video of a senior Twitter engineer lashing out at Elon Musk and admitting the tech giant doesn’t believe in free speech.
Twitter Senior Engineer, Siru Murugesan, said the following to an undercover PV journalist:
- “Twitter does not believe in free speech… Elon believes in free speech.”
- “Our jobs are at stake, he’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like we’re all like commie as fuck.”
- “We did all we could to like revolt against it. A lot of employees were revolting against it.”
Elon Musk saw Project Veritas’ undercover video of the Twitter engineer bragging about censoring conservatives and discussing the internal revolt against Musk.
“Is this legit?” Musk said in a tweet responding to the undercover video.
Is this legit?
