Andrew Tate on Twitter, targeting activist Greta Thunberg

Controversial internet personality Andrew Tate has resurfaced on Twitter, posting support for the site’s new owner Elon Musk, but his comeback has raised some eyebrows online.
In a video that appeared to mock the platform on Monday, former kickboxer Tate uploaded a transcript of climate activist Greta Thunberg’s famous speech to the United Nations with the caption, “Go to school.”
The video shows fast cars, private jets, and cigars smoking along with the UN Climate Action Summit speech given by Thunberg in 2019.
When Ms. Thunberg makes her emotional plea to action, the video shows Tate laughing in response to her comments about stolen dreams.
The Swedish activist came to prominence in 2018 when she organized school strikes and became the face of the youth movement for climate action.
Tate, 35, became a prominent online figure but was banned from Twitter in 2017 for violating terms of service after tweeting that rape victims “have some responsibility”.
In August this year, he was banned from YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and TikTok after violating the platforms’ hate speech policies.
Now he’s back on Twitter, with messages about being the “last superhero of masculinity,” declaring that he’s going to save everyone.
said National Director Alan Ball of the violence prevention group White Ribbon Australia feeding It’s amazing that Twitter has reversed the ban.
Of his concerns about the consequences of making similar comments, he said: “I am concerned about the message this sends particularly to Australian men and young men.”
Tate shared recent travel posts that he’s on his way to Twitter headquarters to tell new owner, Elon Musk, that he’s a “legend.”
While some of his fans welcome his return to Twitter, others question his return to the platform.
Tate has a history of controversial online posts and has faced criticism over its content.

“What we know at White Ribbon Australia is that young people are particularly interested in what he has to say,” said Mr Paul. feeding.

said Verity Trott, Lecturer in Digital Media Research at Monash University in Melbourne feeding An increasing number of men are becoming vulnerable to what she describes as misogynistic beliefs on the Internet.
“He’s trying to sell and convince users to play a trust game,” she said when commenting on Tate’s approach.

“What is concerning is the large number of followers and the reception Tate has received,” she said.

Ms Trott said it can be easier for men to express frustration with what she describes as hatred towards women and ethnic minorities “rather than acknowledging the complexity of the challenges we face collectively in society and at a time of political turmoil”.
“Tate’s online content and business strategy certainly isn’t new,” she said.
“We’ve seen similar logical models … for over a decade,” said Trott.
Tate writes on his official website that he shares cold hard truths and calls it the “Tate Speech” rather than hate speech.
Mr Ball encouraged Tate to consider banning social media and using his platform to promote kindness.
He commented that it was blocked “on every app known to man”.
Tate invites the public to connect with “men of ambition” to learn from them in order to enhance their networks and net worth.
Tate declared himself a self-made millionaire with the secrets of “modern wealth creation”.
