“Here’s why [the buyout] is going to be interesting,” Rogan continued. “First of all, he believes that free speech is important and not just important — vital — for a functioning democracy.

“They ban accounts if the account says something they don’t agree with, if the account says something that violates what they believe, also this ability to shadow ban people has to be exposed,” Rogan argued.
