Elon Musk is accused of violating a non-disclosure agreement with Twitter by sharing secrets about what the company has been doing to users.

Musk says Twitter users are “being manipulated” and showed how to turn off Twitter’s algorithmic feed generator.

The world’s richest person says Twitter has two versions of their feed, which are called “Latest Tweets” and “Home.” Users can select either.

The company allegedly created the “Home” algorithm to manipulate users while the former shows tweets from followed accounts in chronological order. Musk told everyone to switch to “Latest Tweet” immediately. Take a look:

In another recent tweet, Musk took on NBC, Hunter Biden, Matt Lauer and Harvey Weinstein all at once.

MSNBC’s Medhi Hasan argued on-air that Republicans are “pro-neo-Nazi” and criticized Elon Musk for being “not-so-bright” by purchasing Twitter to allow for free speech. “We are living through an unspeakably dangerous moment,” Hasan said. “The pro-QAnon, pro-neo-Nazi faction of the Republican party is poised to expand dramatically come the midterms.

“We’re just two years away from Donald Trump very possible reseizing executive power. If that happens, we may look back on this .. as a pivotal moment, when a petulant & not-so-bright billionaire casually bought one of the most influential messaging machines & just handed it to the far-right,” Hasan said.

Musk didn’t let this one slip by without responding. He fired back, “NBC basically saying Republicans are Nazis.”

“Same org that covered up Hunter Biden laptop story, had Harvey Weinstein story early & killed it & built Matt Lauer his rape office. Lovely people,” Musk added. Take a look:

More on this story via Fox News:

Musk announced his intentions to purchase Twitter last month after criticizing the company’s lack of commitment to free speech. He says he will take the company private after the purchase.

The purchase was briefly thrown up in the air on Friday when Musk tweeted that the deal was “on hold” following a report that bot accounts comprised less than 5% of users on Twitter. Combating bots and spam was another major reason Musk cited for his purchase.

He later tweeted that he was still committed to the acquisition, however.

Musk confirmed last week that he would allow former President Donald Trump to return to Twitter once the purchase is complete. Trump has previously stated that he would not return to Twitter even if given the chance, however, preferring to stay on his “Truth Social” site.

“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump told Fox News on April 25. “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it, and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on TRUTH.”
