Musk Makes Startling Promise to Help Cover Legal Bills

( – In his continuous quest to transform Twitter into something uniquely his own, including renaming the social media platform, Elon Musk is now promising to cover the legal costs of anyone “unfairly treated” by an employer over their Twitter activity.

The billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX who purchased Twitter last year posted on the platform Saturday that anyone who was “unfairly treated” by an employer for “posting or liking something on this platform,” the company (now known as X) will cover the “legal bill. Musk also specified that “no limit” would be put on the compensation.

When Musk purchased the social media platform in 2022, he did so with a stated mission of preserving and promoting free speech, which he called “the bedrock of a functioning democracy.” He described Twitter as “the digital town square” where people debate “matters vital to the future of humanity.”

Since his takeover, a lot of changes have been made, from firing a large portion of the staff to Twitter Blue, a paywall for many new features, not to mention changing the platform’s name and brand entirely.

A feud also erupted between Meto CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Musk after Zuckerberg released a new app called Threads that is text-based and designed similarly to Twitter, resulting in Musk challenging the Facebook founder to a fight and issuing cease-and-desist papers to Meta over Threads.

The saga between the two billionaires continues as well, with Musk stating on Sunday that the cage match fight between him and Zuckerberg “will be live-streamed on X” and proceeds would toward charities helping veterans. Zuckerberg replied to Musk’s post with another jab, asking if it would be smarter to “use a more reliable platform that can actually raise money for charity?” Zuckerberg claims he proposed a fight date of August 26 but has yet to hear back from Musk for confirmation.

Although he seemed serious about his offer to help, it’s still unclear how Musk will be able to afford an unlimited amount of legal fees for everyone facing backlash at their job for using Twitter.
