Seth Dillon is still locked out of Twitter but his take on this is too hot for the platform anyway
With the Babylon Bee’s Seth Dillon still locked out of Twitter, and Elon Musk poised for a hostile takeover which could change that, this interview with Jesse Watters sure is spicy.
Last month, Twitter indefinitely suspended the Babylon Bee, a conservative satire page of which Seth Dillon is CEO. The Tweet which got them suspended was one referring to a transgender, male-to-female, within the Biden Administration as their “Man of the Year.” The Babylon Bee has refused to stand down, asserting that their free speech is truth, and not hate speech.
On April 14th, Elon Musk played his hand and made an offer to Twitter to take over the company for a massive $41.39 billion. If Musk takes over Twitter, it is expected that accounts such as the Babylon Bee’s and President Trump’s will be restored.
In an interview that day between Fox’s Jesse Waters and The Babylon Bee’s Seth Dillon, Seth reiterated the world’s expectations for Elon Musk if he takes over Twitter. He agreed that with a “free speech absolutist” taking over Twitter, the platform could see a complete turn around from their current policy of anti-speech.
The question: Would Twitter under Elon Musk have a chance of rebounding in the minds and eyes of people like Watters, who are off Twitter and loving it?
Seth Dillon answered that he does believe Twitter has that chance, and that many people threatening to leave the platform would rather gripe than actually leave and create their own platform, since they can’t take their followers with them.
Dillon also discusses Twitter’s rigging the game, requiring that all bow down before their ideology.

Putting it succinctly, Dillon said that “Twitter doesn’t have a problem with hate speech. They [Twitter] just hate speech.”
