Since Elon Musk acquired Twitter in a tumultuous $44 billion deal completed last October, the social network has turned down very few requests for content restriction or censorship from countries like Turkey and India, which have recently passed laws limiting freedom of speech and the press.

Despite describing himself as a “free speech absolutist”, El Pais reports that since Elon bought Twitter the rate of the company agreeing to government requests to remove tweets has jumped from 50% to 83%.

His “free speech” bona fides were obviously never true, but the numbers are interesting.
