Twitter CEO Elon Musk has set new policy for Twitter, saying, “New Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science.”  Many Twitter users praised the move. Mathematical physicist, economist, and the managing director of Thiel Capital, Eric Weinstein tweeted, “This. Changes. Everything. If true.”  Other scientific and conservative voices agreed with Weinstein. Among the detractors were New York Times contributor Wajahat Ali who tweeted, “Something a really dumb person would tweet.”  Journalist Ashton Pittman tweeted, “By ‘reasoned questioning,’ Elon Musk means batsh*t clown car conspiracy theorist drivel.”
