Editor’s Note: Between recording and publication, Twitter announced that Musk would not be joining the Twitter board of directors.
Hello, I’m Michael Watson and this is the InfluenceWatch Podcast. The debates over Big Tech and online censorship were thrown for a loop this week when Elon Musk, the multi-billionaire owner of SpaceX and Tesla, announced he had bought a substantial stake in Twitter.
