Elon Musk vs the Australian Government

When Elon Musk bought Twitter, he promised to make the social media platform a haven for free speech.

Tonight, that commitment will be challenged in court by the Australian Government, as the eSafety Commissioner has demanded footage of last week’s Sydney church stabbing to be removed from the platform.

On today’s podcast, we’ll explain the controversy and why the ‘free speech’ argument might not hold up in an Australian court.

Hosts: Lucy Tassell and Billi FitzSimons
