Alex Martinez, Twitter’s “Lead Client Partner,” was recently caught on camera expressing an anti-Autistic, ableist perspective. Elon Musk has Asperger’s syndrome, hence he is “special needs” and therefore cannot be taken seriously. Regardless of your feelings about Elon Musk, I’ve long believed that Twitter is a toxic environment where anti-autistic attitudes and harsh language, such as individuals saying you “You shouldn’t have been born” or “You should have been aborted,” are tolerated. It’s also been eye-opening to watch some extremely affluent organisations emerge from the shadows to speak out against the acquisition. There are no “poor” people on either side of this debate. 3/3 “You are misinformed if you do not read the newspaper.” If you do, you are mistaken.” Twain, Mark
Twitter executive calling Elon Musk mentally handicapped, “special” and saying he has “aspergers.”
This Twitter exec goes on to say that Twitter is “not here to give people free speech” @elonmusk is going to want to see this one too…pic.twitter.com/dQZamaLiC8

The thing with the Alex Martinez situation is that, yeah it does expose @Twitter but the shit talk was something he assumed was private. Most of us have said hell of a lot worse than some shit about Asperger’s in private so..
