Elon Musk is having a normal one on Twitter -- banning journalists who reported on the "Elon Jets" account that posted information about the location of his private plane, prohibiting links to sites like Mastodon & Instagram, and issuing polls asking the public whether he should step down from Twitter. (As of writing, more than 8 million have voted -- and he's losing.) It's a perfect time to talk to internet policy expert Evan Greer about legislation pending in congress that might help ensure some degree of the consistency and transparency that Elon promised, but has not yet provided. We discuss Parler, PayPal, & app store tyranny; the hypocrisy of Alejandra Caraballo's condemnation of right wing violence after calling for SCOTUS members to be "accosted," post-Dobbs, and more.
