Elon Musk asks “Who funds these organizations that want to control your access to information?”

Tuesday, Elon Musk responded to a report by CNN by Brian Fung titled “Brands should force Twitter to uphold content policies under Musk, advocacy groups say.”

Per the CNN report:

Some of the nation’s biggest brands including Coca-Cola (CCEP), Disney (DIS) and Kraft (KHC) are facing calls to boycott Twitter if the company’s soon-to-be owner, billionaire Elon Musk, rolls back content moderation policies limiting hate speech and election misinformation.

In a letter sent to brands Tuesday ahead of the 2022 NewFronts digital advertising conference, more than two dozen civil society groups said marketers should secure commitments from Twitter to retain its most critical policies, including on civic integrity and hateful conduct, and threaten to withdraw funding if Twitter does not comply.

“As top advertisers on Twitter (TWTR), your brand risks association with a platform amplifying hate, extremism, health misinformation, and conspiracy theorists,” the letter said, adding: “Your ad dollars can either fund Musk’s vanity project or hold him to account.”

Musk responded to the report by writing “Who funds these organizations that want to control your access to information? Let’s investigate”

He added in a follow-up tweet “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
