Liberal author Shaun King appears to have left Twitter following his criticism that Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s purchase of the social media platform is “about white power.”

Users who go to King’s profile on the platform, @shaunking, now receive the message, “This account doesn’t exist. Try searching for an additional.”

The account disappeared hours after King lamented Musk’s purchase of the platform Monday.

“At its root, @ElonMusk wanting to buy Twitter just isn’t about left vs right,” King had posted on the platform. “It’s about white power.”

“The person was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist,” King argued. “He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to focus on/harass people. That is his definition of free speech.”

After the Twitter board accepted Musk’s offer to buy the corporate for $44 billion Monday, Musk posted an announcement on Twitter.

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the longer term of humanity are debated,” Musk said. “I also need to make Twitter higher than ever by enhancing the product with recent features, making the algorithms open source to extend trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans.”

“Twitter has tremendous potential – I stay up for working with the corporate and the community of users to unlock it,” Musk added.

 As for critics like King, Musk tweeted, “I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that’s what free speech means.”

“In principle, I don’t imagine anyone should own or run Twitter,” Dorsey wrote on Twitter. “It desires to be a public good at a protocol level, not an organization. Solving for the issue of it being an organization nonetheless, Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission to increase the sunshine of consciousness.”
