He's gonna censor Twitter even more in 3... 2... 1... https://mashable.com/article/elon-musk-twitter-reactions-takeover Elon Musk officially acquired Twitter today for $44 billion — then promptly fired several executives as soon as he stepped in the door. Between his relatively relaxed attitude toward content moderation and his assertions that up to 75 percent of Twitter's workforce will be cut, the reign of Musk is likely to bring numerous changes to the microblogging platform.

Meanwhile, those celebrating Musk's takeover are taking full advantage of his promises of less discerning moderation by tweeting a whole bunch of slurs. This helps explain the first two reactions.
