Earlier today NBC News reported that Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter has the “experts” very concerned. One of the “experts” in the NBC News story happens to be Elizabeth Warren, the noted objective social media algorithm specialist. NBC News’ might also consider journalist Aaron Rupar to be an “expert,” and he seems to think he’s spotted Musk being in violation of his contract:

Here’s one tweet that Rupar says Musk isn’t contractually allowed to say:

Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate

One more alleged violation:
Twitter lawyer Jim Baker, when general counsel of the FBI, personally arranged a meeting between the FBI and Michael Sussmann. In this meeting, Sussmann presented fabricated evidence in the Alfa bank matter. @elonmusk, this is who is inside Twitter.
He facilitated fraud. pic.twitter.com/myKOQov3cO

Sounds pretty bad …

First of all, are those “disparaging” tweets?
That's not a disparaging remark, Aaron.
That actually happened and it is inappropriate.

It’s been a rough couple of days for you, so I get this thin criticism is all you have to latch onto

Let’s get back to that “isn’t contractually allowed to do” part. Yeah, about that:
If you read the actual document, you would know that the limitation on disparaging tweets is only relevant to tweets "about the Merger."

Rupar tweeted something that isn’t accurate? No way!
Do…do you not understand the difference between Twitter and people who work for Twitter? https://t.co/Jcsy91JQyG

Or maybe he just hopes his followers don’t know or don’t care about the difference.
