Elon Musk has raged back at left-wing Twitter staff claiming they will sabotage the social network after his $44billion deal.

The billionaire blasted the ‘extreme antibody reaction’ from ‘those who fear free speech’ and said it ‘says it all’ as he launched his first public backlash against the woke workers.

He said if people wanted to censer free speech further they ‘will ask government to pass laws to that effect’ but added he will not go beyond the law because it would be ‘contrary to the will of the people’.

It came after some employees reacted with horror to the ideal of working for him, claiming the acquisition was ‘dangerous for democracy’.

Last night Twitter blocked its developers from making changes to the app to prevent it being sabotaged by left-wing staff.

Meanwhile commentators from particular outlets continued to warn of the supposed issues of Musk taking command, with hosts of The View among the latest to launch attacks on the entrepreneur.

Sunny Hostin made a bizarre claim about his plans being ‘about free speech of straight white men’, while Joy Behar took a guest to task for saying Donald Trump was ‘horrible but hilarious’ on Twitter.

Obscure left-leaning celebrities led the charge away from the platform overnight as they said they had to abandon it because his ‘free speech bid’ would end in ‘lawless hate, bigotry and misogyny’.

Rob Reiner, star of 1970s sitcom All In The Family, actress turned activist Mia Farrow, and actress Jameela Jamil were among those to moan about the future of the firm under its new owner.

But Musk silenced them on Tuesday afternoon, posting: ‘The extreme antibody reaction from those who fear free speech says it all.’

He continued: ‘By ”free speech”, I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law.

‘If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.’

He later added: ‘Per aspera ad astra!’ The Latin phrase roughly translates as: ‘Through difficulties to the stars!’
