Elon Musk‘s pursuit of Twitter is an act of “incredibly dangerous narcissism” according to President Michael D. Higgins.

The President made a wide-ranging address to a conference on climate change at DCU on Thursday.

He did not refer to Billionaire Musk by name, but made it apparent as he spoke about how “someone announces they are able to buy Twitter”.

A multi-billionaire would be now deciding what it’s appropriate for people to exchange in public discourse,” he said.

I think it can hardly be described as anything other than a manifestation of an incredibly dangerous narcissism.”

President Higgins hit out at excess consumption and the “myth of progress” built on ever-increasing economic growth that benefitted the few.

He said the response to the climate crisis must come from all sectors of society and he praised those working to give prominence to the issue.

One of the great benefits of Ireland coming through Covid was that we didn’t have intergenerational divisions,” he said.
