David Schwartz has accused Musk of wishing to use the social media giant to give "better treatment to political speech that he favors." Besides, according to Schwartz, Musk may lack expertise in social media moderation and has never spoken to anyone in this field. Dogecoin co-founder Jackson Palmer has not supported the Tesla boss either, saying that he is the last person who should own Twitter.
