Liberals with verified Twitter accounts have flooded the social media platform to talk about the idea of billionaires buying up social media companies, leading their conservative critics to point out that many Democrats have been silent about similar billionaire purchases in the past.
“Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter is bad,” said former Democratic congressional candidate Nina Turner. Tweet this week. Billionaires owning the media is bad. Billionaires buying politicians is bad. We wonder why ‘the rich get richer while the poor get poorer’, right?
Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration Posted on Thursday.
Social media conservatives responded to the tweets by noting that Democrats supported Jeff Bezos’s Washington Post and were less critical of the fortunes of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz tweeted in response to Reich, “Translation: the left liked the old billionaire more than the new billionaire, because the former billionaire silenced everyone who disagreed with the left.”
“Stop attacking Bezos Zuckerberg and Dorsey, you know your guys,” CPAC President Matt Schlapp tweeted.

Musk completed his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter on Thursday, posting a letter to advertisers outlining his vision for the company.
“The reason I acquired Twitter is that it is important for the future of civilization to have a shared digital city plaza, where a wide range of beliefs can be discussed in a healthy way, without resorting to violence,” Post Musk on Twitter. “There is currently a huge risk that social media will split into the far right and far left echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.”
