Elon Musk says Trump had no involvement in decision to acquire Twitter



Elon Musk

Elon Musk set the record straight saying there is no truth to rumors that former President Donald Trump had no involvement with his Twitter purchase. “This is false. I’ve had no communication, directly or indirectly, with Trump, who has publicly stated that he will be exclusively on Truth Social” Musk tweeted.

Musk’s response comes after Devin Nunes said Trump had “encouraged” Musk to acquire Twitter. Nunes is the CEO of Trump Media and Technology Group.

In an appearance on Fox Business Network Nunes stated “President Trump, basically before Elon Musk bought it, actually said to go and buy it because the goal of our company is really to build a community where people are in a family-friendly, safe environment.”

“That’s why we encouraged Elon Musk to buy it, because someone has to take on these tech tyrants,” Nunes added. “Donald Trump wanted to make sure that the American people got their voice back and that the internet was open and that’s what we are doing.”

Last month on Fox News Trump said “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth…I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”

Also last month Musk tweeted a little jab at Truth Social, tweeting:

“Truth Social (terrible name) exists because Twitter censored free speech. Should be called Trumpet instead!”

    Just DNC media pushing a total lie and nonstory to go after Elon Musk since he believes in our core values of freedom of speech. They just can’t stand it.

    For much I liked Trump why would a notoriously successful businessman need the approval of a has-been failed former president? And I totally agree with the “little jab”… Musk is less funny than Trump but as scalpel sharp…

    Is that a double negative or am I reading it wrong? I’m no English major but it really seems like today’s journalists don’t write correctly.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP has set up his own platform.
    Why would he go anywhere else? He already has so many millions of followers….
    But it is a GREAT move for FREEDOM of Speech and thoughts on the part of Mr MUSK!

    “there is no truth to rumors that former President Donald Trump had no involvement with his Twitter purchase.”
    Bad editing. This actually says that DT had involvement with the purchase.

Fake, AI-generated photo of Pentagon explosion causes brief drop in US stocks



Screen Shot 2023 05 22 at 8.48.02 PM

A fake photo of a terrifying explosion at the Pentagon circulated the internet Monday, but not before causing panic in the stock market. “A purportedly AI-generated photo of a fake explosion at the Pentagon spread rapidly on social media on Monday – prompting mass confusion among users and a brief selloff in the US stock market” reports the New York Post.

As the photo was shared on social media platforms, US stocks took a dip; fortunately recovery occurred “quickly”. The Post reported that the photo showing billowing smoke “was shared by Russian state media outlet and other accounts alongside claims that an explosion has occurred at the complex. RT later deleted the image.”

The scare is the latest example of the global damages and repercussions that can occur due to artificial intelligence. The Post gives additional examples: “Previously, social media users were tricked by viral AI-generated images of Pope Francis wearing a Balenciaga puffer jacket and of former President Donald Trump clashing with the NYPD while being arrested.”
