Many have been fired for expressing political views on social media.

Elon Musk is pledging to fund legal costs for those fired for liking or posting on Twitter, or X as the platform is now known.

He is asking people to “please let us know” if this has happened and states that there will be no limit on the funding.

Since the eccentric billionaire took over Twitter last year, significant changes have been made to the platform, particularly in terms of freedom of expression. Musk has also shared how censorship on the platform worked in the past, revealing how posts were shadow-banned. He has also opened up accounts that have been blocked for obviously political reasons.

Musk now makes the point that they will also support anyone who is treated unfairly by their employer because they have liked or posted something. If this is the case, Elon Musk promises to finance the legal costs.

If you were unfairly treated by your employer due to posting or liking something on this platform, we will fund your legal bill. No limit. Please let us know“, he writes.

 

The comments have flowed strongly under Musk’s post, with many praising his initiative and announcing that they will be in touch.
