Move over thoughtcrime. Followcrime is here. Earlier this week Motherboard tweeted, “Guess how many women Elon Musk follows on Twitter? Hint: same number of people currently on Mars”. Yes, people are actually complaining about who Elon follows on Twitter. If you’re a CEO in tech watch your back because you’re no longer responsible for what you say or think. Now it’s who you publicly follow. The Daily Show recently did a skit mocking the freedom in North Carolina for private businesses to discriminate against customers. I argue in favor of this right.
