Critics Notice Something Weird About Vindman's Tweet. Musk Responds.

One of the main holdups for Elon Musk after his initial $44 billion deal to buy Twitter was the percentage of users who are bots. The billionaire claims the company grossly misled about the severity of the problem, while Twitter argued he was using the issue as a pretext to get out of the deal. Of course, both could be true, but to avoid a lengthy court battle, here we are now with Musk in full control of Twitter and the fake account issue still there. 

Take, for example, what happened this weekend, when Chinese bot accounts flooded the site to bury news about the massive anti-lockdown protests taking place. But that’s not the only spamming campaign that caught attention. 

Remember retired Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman? He made a name for himself as a witness in the first impeachment against former President Trump. He was one of the White House staffers who listened in on Trump’s call with his Ukrainian counterpart and issued a report about it, which set in motion the impeachment inquiry. 

But now, he, like most liberals, seems infuriated that Musk is at Twitter’s helm. 

“Kinda weird that @elonmusk gets to decide how like a half-billion people communicate. Way too much power for one erratic individual to wield, don’t you think?” he wrote. 

That message was then repeated over and over again by spam accounts, which Musk and others noticed. 

Needless to say, Vindman didn't take too kindly to those comments. 

 The typical leftist outrage ensued.
