Elon Musk Slams Australian Prime Minister over X's 'Censorship' of Alleged Terror Posts

Elon Musk criticized Australia's prime minister after a court ordered his social media company, X (formerly Twitter), to remove footage of an alleged terrorist attack in Sydney.
The court temporarily hid the posts due to their explicit violence, despite X already blocking them for Australian users.

Musk viewed this as censorship and a potential threat to free speech.

Elon Musk, the third-richest person in the world, expressed concern over Prime Minister Anthony Albanese of Australia's potential jurisdiction over the entire internet.

Musk bought Twitter in 2022 with a mission to protect free speech and posted a meme on the platform comparing X (free speech and truth) to other social media platforms representing censorship and propaganda.

He argued that if any country is allowed to censor content for all countries, it could lead to one country controlling the entire internet.

This stance sets up a new front in the ongoing debate between internet platforms and governments and nonprofits seeking more content oversight.

A U.S. judge dismissed a lawsuit by tech company X against the Center for Countering Digital Hate.

In Australia, X was fined A$610,500 for not cooperating with an investigation into anti-child abuse practices, and X is challenging this penalty in court.

In response to Elon Musk's criticism, Australian Prime Minister Albanese stated that the country would take action against Musk for his arrogant behavior and disregard for the law and decency.
