Martina Navratilova is one of the most active users on social media, especially Twitter. She is known to express her views lucidly on a range of topics which include- politics, LGBTQ+ issues, the environment, sports, and this list goes on.
The 66-year-old former professional tennis legend and business magnate Elon Musk shares a very cold relationship. She has criticized Mr. Musk many times on a range of issues, as she was evidently very unhappy when the Tesla boss bought Twitter. Speculations were high that Mr. Musk could ask Twitter to delete Martina Navratilova’s official Twitter handle as well as ban her from ever comeback on the social media giant’s platform.
However, nothing of such consequence took the fruit. For now, Martina Navratilova is speaking her mind and vocal in her criticism of Mr. Musk. In a new tweet, she came out fiercely against the Twitter boss. As per the popular personality herself, Elon Musk is trying to control the media and the political discussion using Twitter as a tool in his hands.
“I think Elon is destroying Twitter because there is just too much logical political discourse going on and where liberals can connect and get ideas etc. Owning the libs is what this is all about…” Martina Navratilova said.
She replied to Mr. Ellston Logan’s tweet.
“Elon Musk tanking Twitter is going to be something political scientists need to study in terms of letting stratospherically wealthy people co-opt and then destroy the public sphere. It’s alarming, actually. This should not be happening,” he had tweeted.
Former World No.1 seems to be agreeing with Mr. Logan’s views. It is to be seen what Mr. Musk has to say on the new criticism coming in from all quarters of the world on Twitter.
