What an altruist and patriot Musk is. Doing his part to try to help the U.S. economy by reducing employment.

Good Christians help the homeless and those afflicted with addictions.

Jokes on Musk are fine and well, but if there is one group of people being downsized I don't feel much pity for its highly paid tech employees in Silicon Valley that work for a company that doesn't make money and have a delusional sense about what their role actually is and throw a tantrum when they don't like new management

He's got the victimhood down...and is still clueless about what free speech means.

Voting with your wallet is free speech.   See: Rakolta, Terry.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

If free speech is the priority, why is there moderation?

Yea.  I get that people don't like Musk for a variety of reasons, but constant attempts to paint him as a moron or naive or an idiot seem very dumb.  I don't think his intelligence means he's an automatic success at anything he does and I think some of his plans for Twitter have thus far seemed a bit misguided.  That being said, people seem to want to make him out to be a clueless whackjob or take anything he does at the most literal face value as a way to make themselves feel better about their dislike or fear of him.

No, you and Hards are correct, he is pandering more than clueless I suppose. Advertisers leaving in droves is a form of free speech, but his fan bois will never make that connection.

But, if he isn't clueless about what free speech is, he is still definitely playing the whiny victim.

Not saying he is a clueless whack job, but I do know a few people that met him/knew him and none characterized him as particularly smart. Where he excels is at networking, knowing smart people, and having a lot of money.

He also knows how the system works and can exploit it.

I'm no a business expert, but threatening to go "thermonuclear" on advertisers doesn't seem to be a sound strategy for winning them over.

I’ll admit this is going way worse than I expected from a PR perspective. The rubber meets the road when advertisers actually pull their spend and when functions wither due to personnel atrophy, but so far I look like a mope for predicting not much would change.

New management says Twitter is losing $4 million a day. Hence the needs for workforce reduction
