    Not sure why this matters if it was Elon Musk or Joe Blow....

    matter not the person doing the call out, all people are equal under the law...… or so its supposed to work.
    damages and restitution might be different but the charges and punishment the same.

    there's a tangible difference between Elon and Joe Blow when it comes to twitter, Elon has more people following him than most magazines have subscribers, and they(magazines) can't publish knowingly false information because of established law. Not sure how Tweets are different when you have the power to reach millions.

    The internet made it easier to blur the lines between news and tabloid journalism... but so has Fox News, with their prime time line up specifically of opinion-news "journalism".

    I don't think insulting people should be punishable by law.

    The main reason the jury went in favor of Elon wasn't because they didn't think what he said was defamation of Unsworth, they said because he didn't use Vernon Unsworth name then you can't say the tweets were directed at him or about him.

    It sound like total bullshit because it's very obvious who he was referring to with the tweet but that's the outcome they came to.
