Vitalik Buterin’s Statement About Elon Musk’s Twitter Policy

Co-Founder of Ethereum Vitalic Buterine Spoke on Elon Musk’s latest wave of Twitter censorship. He said the site’s account bans in the past few days have put Twitter on the “path to authoritarianism”.

In response to a post praising Musk, Buterin said that Musk has implemented a strategy he calls “central planning as overcompliance” and has implemented policies that seem to have realigned around his views on very specific situations.

Buterin objected to such a justification when a user said that Musk only responded to system inputs by quickly banning such follower accounts.

Buterin said in response:

“Acting quickly and decisively in response to catalysts is the road to authoritarianism when it comes to banning things.”
