Joe Rogan believes Elon Musk offered to buy Twitter because he “cares” about free speech and worries about censorship, rather than being motivated solely by financial gain.
After Elon Musk invested $3 billion in Twitter and started pitching ideas to improve the platform, the enigmatic billionaire is reportedly considering buying the company outright. He also wanted to join the board, but that failed.
Joe Rogan was all for investing in the company, and during a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, he claimed Musk’s desire to buy it was motivated because he “worries” about freedom of speech.
“I think he cares. He does. Really,” Rogan said. “He’s concerned about censorship. He said freedom of speech is someone you don’t like to say something you don’t want to hear. He goes, they must have the right. That is important for democracy.”
Rogan believes most people “objectively agree” with Musk. However, he believes they are too “scared” to speak out because they “see how crowds on social media platforms can move in a very negative direction.”
“They’ve been running this campaign for the last few years to silence certain voices and stop aggressive people and stop people from being s*** to people. Some of it is good. But it’s like, where does it end, and how do you know where it ends? Not you. It’s funny there.”
Rogan believes that Musk’s decision to make an offer to buy Twitter was motivated by a desire to change that, rather than purely for financial gain. However, the board allegedly planned to prevent it from happening.
Even if that doesn’t happen, Musk remains the company’s largest shareholder today. Because of this, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal said Musk will continue to influence company decisions, just to a lesser extent.
