Elon Musk Tells NPR You Suck After Outlet Reports He Threatened to Reassign Twitter Account

Twitter CEO Elon Musk threatened to reassign the National Public Radio (NPR) Twitter account after it stopped tweeting, which the outlet reported on, prompting Musk to hit back with “You suck.”

Last month, Twitter slapped NPR with the label “state-affiliated media.”

But when some users pointed out the label contradicted Twitter’s terms of service, Elon Musk changed the label on the NPR Twitter account to “state-funded media.”

NPR then announced it would abandon its Twitter account in order to protest any labeling.

“NPR and our member stations are supported by millions of listeners who depend on us for the independent, fact-based journalism we provide,” wrote John Lansing, the CEO and president of NPR. “It is unacceptable for Twitter to label us this way. A vigorous, vibrant free press is essential to the health of our democracy.”

Appearing to acquiesce, Musk removed the labels altogether.

However, NPR has not tweeted on its account since April 4.

Earlier this week, Musk asked the outlet if he should reassign the account to another person or company.

“So is NPR going to start posting on Twitter again, or should we reassign @NPR to another company?” he wrote, according to NPR.

“Our policy is to recycle handles that are definitively dormant,” Musk wrote in a different email. “Same policy applies to all accounts. No special treatment for NPR.”

NPR asked Musk what company would take over their Twitter account.

Musk responded, saying, “National Pumpkin Radio.”

“NPR isn’t tagged as government-funded anymore, so what’s the beef?” he asked.

After NPR published the story, Musk emailed them a short message in the subject line.

“You suck,” he wrote.

NPR isn’t independent. It’s a politically weaponized mouthpiece of the far left, funded by the American taxpayers.

NPR is a cesspool to democrat party lies, slander, and psychotic false narratives.

Just another propaganda organization fueled by any the feds and toeing the dim mantra in exchange for their cash.
