SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: Billionaire Elon Musk, following the release of the Twitter Files describing the events that led to Twitter's alleged efforts to hide the article about Hunter Biden's laptop using strange regulations and laws, sees a clear threat that someone may try to take his life. Musk not only believes that something bad could happen to him, but the situation is so serious that he fears assassination.

In a two-hour discussion on Twitter Spaces over the weekend on Saturday, December 4, Musk said his assassination was "quite significant" in a way that "there will not be "any open-air car parades, let me put it that way," he claimed. "Frankly, the risk of something bad happening to me, or even literally being shot, is quite significant," the Twitter chief, Tesla, and SpaceX CEO said. "It's not that hard to kill somebody if you wanted to, so hopefully they don't, and that fate smiles upon the situation with me and it does not happen ... There's definitely some risk there," he said.

Musk's remarks followed the debut of the so-called Twitter Files, an unrestricted inside look into corporate interactions at Twitter over the last few years, including through some of the company's most contentious times, on Friday, December 3 evening. Musk gave reporters Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss complete access to the sensitive material, which in the end "might make sense to have...publicly available so that anyone can look at them." Before the thread was published, Musk announced in a tweet, "What really happened with the Hunter Biden story suppression by Twitter will be published on Twitter at 5.pm ET!"

"What you’re about to read is the first installment in a series, based upon thousands of internal documents obtained by sources at Twitter. The “Twitter Files” tell an incredible story from inside one of the world’s largest and most influential social media platforms. It is a Frankensteinian tale of a human-built mechanism grown out the control of its designer." Taibbi wrote while sharing a series of documents in a twitter thread."The Twitter Files, Part One: How and Why Twitter Blocked the Hunter Biden Laptop Story," he wrote as the thread went public snowballing into a major controversy with many suggesting investigation against previous employees.

Retriatimg the freedom of speech, Musk who calls himself a "free speech absolutist said," “[Where] our speech is not suppressed, and we can say what we want to say without fear of reprisals,” and said the idea of the Twitter Files exercise is to "come clean on everything that has happened in the past in order to build public trust for the future. 'I’m not controlling the narrative. It’s just obvious there’s been a lot of control of information, suppression of information, including things that affected elections, and that just all need to be … you just want to have the stuff out there,' he said as per the Daily Mail. "Frankly, Twitter was acting like an arm of the Democratic National Committee, it was absurd,' Musk said, "If Twitter is doing one team’s bidding before an election shutting down dissenting voices on a pivotal election, that is the definition of election interference."
