CEO Elon Musk is concerned about repercussions for Twitter if former President Donald Trump returns to the platform as part of his 2024 presidential campaign.  Musk tweeted, “Will be interesting to see how the Biden administration reacts to this. They may try to weaponize Federal agencies against Twitter.”  Boston Globe‘s Hiawatha Bray wrote, “In all, the ‘Twitter Files’ paint a picture of a wide-ranging federal effort to exert control over the editorial policies of a major media company. The feds might be doing the same at other social media companies, such as Facebook and YouTube. And since the U.S. government has the power to make things very unpleasant for companies that resist, the temptation to comply may prove irresistible.”
