If I Don’t Have Something Nice To Say, Don’t Say Anything

I read this article from the WSJ and it pissed me off. Why would Musk do this? It serves no constructive purpose. It made me think of the above proverb. Maybe we should have a day when we all try to live by it. Like EVERYDAY!!
The article (truncated):
Elon Musk Criticizes Twitter Executive, Drawing Employee Backlash
Twitter’s prospective owner used the platform to mock the company’s top legal boss over the company’s alleged political bias
Elon Musk, whose takeover bid for Twitter Inc. was accepted two days ago, continued to use the site to criticize executives there, culminating in a meme Wednesday that mocked the top legal boss’s response to accusations of the company’s political bias. The tweets from Mr. Musk, who has an outsize presence on Twitter, with more than 80 million followers, prompted online attacks toward Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s longtime head of legal, policy and safety. Mr. Musk’s critique escalated despite an agreement as part of the takeover deal not to disparage the company or the people who work there.
On Wednesday, Mr. Musk tweeted an image of Ms. Gadde, overlaid with text that repeated allegations that Twitter has a left-wing political bias. Mr. Musk’s followers and others on Twitter soon retweeted his message more than 20,000 times, and some added racist and sexist messages directed at Ms. Gadde, including that she should be fired and should go back to India.
