Billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk is back in the news again regarding his plans to expand into social media.
Musk, who is currently engaged in a court battle with Twitter after initially making an offer to purchase the platform for $44 billion, suggested on Wednesday that he is open to working with Rumble, an up-and-coming video platform competitor to YouTube, in which conservative talker and Fox News host Dan Bongino has a financial interest.
The exchange began after Russel Brand, a Hollywood celebrity who has taken up the cause of free speech, claimed that YouTube censored him for making a minor mistake — one he says the legacy corporate media made as well but did not suffer any consequences for doing so because Brand believes the platform is now part of the mainstream media.
“Good point,” Musk responded.
