Elon Musk's Twitter plans could struggle in Asia

For all the furor about which way Elon Musk might tilt U.S. political discourse after getting the keys to Twitter Inc., his biggest challenges may emerge across the Pacific.

Asia, home to more than half the world’s population, is Twitter’s biggest growth opportunity and arguably a far thornier challenge.

If the Tesla Inc. and SpaceX billionaire makes good on promises to scrap censorship, he’ll encounter a plethora of perplexing regulations, wielded by sometimes authoritarian governments, pushed to the limits by a horde of first-time internet users.

If you don't like freedom of speech then block twitter China style or come up with something to compete.
Why should anyone bend backwards for these countries.
F** 'em.

EM has stated that he will comply with government laws and not let the woke mob do the censoring.
