(NEWSWEEK) –  SpaceX founder and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has labeled so-called Big Tech “the de facto arbiter of free speech,” after Facebook, Instagram and Twitter banned President Donald Trump from their platforms.

Commenting on a satirical article about Trump’s social media ban following the U.S. Capitol riots, Musk tweeted: “A lot of people are going to be super unhappy with West Coast high tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech.”

He also replied to a tweet posted by Tesla fan account @RationalEtienne reading: “West Coast high tech has to make the distinction between banning hate speech and banning speech it hates.”

Elon Musk responded: “This is an important distinction.”

Twitter said it decided to permanently suspend Donald Trump’s account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
