The longtime king of cable news ratings, Tucker Carlson, has announced he’ll be relaunching his show on Twitter just a couple of weeks after being abruptly fired by Fox News. Elon Musk has positioned Twitter as being a platform for content creators and free speech. Despite claims by journalists and media outlets that they’d be boycotting the platform, most have remained.
