JustA Dad wrote:

"I am all for Elon Musk buying Twitter. But I am 100% in agreement with Trevor, billionaires shouldn't be able to control everyone's lives so easy, or at all. But blame our politicians, they need to fix our broken system, and there is a lot to fix."

Leonaza7 commented:

"He that can and would buy Twitter for 44 BILLION (ego & power) should be paying his fair share of TAXES (toward our country’s health and future). I pay my fair share, so should he."

Teresa Amanfu added:

"Why does Elon musk buying Twitter scare me so much?"
