The owner of “X”, the social network that used to be Twitter, Elon Musk, shared a post that said the media’s “attacks” on him for being antisemitic were supported by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

The post was by Mario Nawfal, who runs The Roundtable Show, a big Twitter Spaces show. Twitter Spaces lets people talk to each other live using audio.

Musk agreed with Nawfal’s post and said it was “accurate”

Nawfal said that “an independent research firm” found that almost all of the content on Twitter was “healthy”, but he did not say where he got this information from. He also said that Twitter made a big mistake when they counted how much hate speech there was on the site. He said it was much less than what Twitter said it was (0.003% vs 0.012%).

He also said that Twitter was doing very well and had more users, more time spent on the site, and more video views than ever before. But he did not give any evidence for this either.

He laughed when someone called the ADL a civil rights group.

X’s new policy X announced that they were going to do more to stop antisemitism on their site. They said they changed some of their rules about what people can say and do on X. They said they added some new words and phrases that are hurtful to Jewish people and they will not allow them on X.

They made this announcement on the same day that Elon Musk told the ADL to change their name and drop the “anti-”. It is not clear if these two things are related or which one happened first.
