If you read what Musk says he wants to do with Twitter, he never said anything about taking down or turning off content filters.  All he said in his statement is about that is to make the filtering algorithm public.

Think on this please.

Those suggesting that Musk's ownership of Twitter is a bad thing are arguing in favor of keeping the filtering algorithm secret.  This is suggesting that secrecy in this context is a good thing and by extension, that unaccountable power is a good thing.

Alternative interpretations please?  Anyone here wish to argue that unaccountable power is a good thing?  Do elaborate please.
