The Elon Musk and Twitter saga continues.

Six weeks ago, Elon Musk signed a deal to buy Twitter for $44 billion. He waived his right to due diligence at the time, but has recently raised newfound concerns about the number of bots on the platform. He demanded access to Twitter’s data, and shockingly, the company is planning to meet his demands.

Elon Musk does not yet own Twitter. He hasn’t paid even a penny for the platform, but now he’s set to gain access to the company’s firehose of data—comprising over 500 million tweets posted each day. This threatens the privacy and security of users worldwide, especially given Musk’s history of exploiting access to people’s personal data and online activities.

During his tenure as CEO, Tesla reportedly paid a public relations firm to surveil employees’ social media [[link removed]] as they sought to unionize. Tesla also rolled back privacy protections [[link removed]] last year, leaving customers with little option but to submit to the company’s collection of in-car video and voice recordings along with precise location data.

Don’t let Twitter sacrifice the privacy and wellbeing of its users, advertisers, and shareholders by giving Elon Musk access to the company’s data. Add your name to urge Twitter not to acquiesce to Musk’s demands. [[link removed]]

Twitter shouldn’t give Elon Musk access to this massive amount of personal data. We’re going to keep fighting to protect the privacy of millions. And we’re going to do everything we can to ultimately stop the deal of Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover for the broader threat it poses to users, society, and democracy.

Thanks for being with us,

We see the irony of asking you to take action on the same platforms we’re fighting to hold accountable, but they are… well… dominant. We have to reach people where they are in order to level the playing field -- and we’re ready to bring the fight right to their own platforms.
