Last Updated on:

Brian Rose, host of London Real, has become a viral sensation on X (formerly known as Twitter) with his advocacy for free speech, securing the top trending spot in the UK on March 26. His campaign, labelled #BeMoreElon, outshone the England and Wales football games, newly appointed Tory deputy chairman Jonathan Gullis MP, and even P Diddy in popularity.

With content showcasing Rose standing outside YouTube’s offices holding a sign that urges the platform to “Be More Elon”, his initiative has captured the global social media audience, highlighting his deplatformed yet popular YouTube channel, London Real, which had amassed over 2.4 million followers and 1 billion views without any explanation or chance for redress.

Rose’s modern campaigning strategy has resonated well, igniting conversations on the critical role of free speech within the digital landscape.

His stirring addresses and insightful productions have appealed to a wide demographic, from London locals worried about curtailment to global digital rights campaigners.

Central to Rose’s campaign is the advocacy for the inalienable right of freedom of speech, increasingly pivotal as online dialogue shapes societal views and political discourse. Amidst growing scrutiny of social media giants for their content regulation and censorship policies, Rose’s stance has struck a chord with those keen on maintaining their digital expression rights.

Discussing his campaign, Brian Rose said, “In a city as cosmopolitan and dynamic as London, it’s imperative that we protect the fundamental right to free expression for all citizens, both online and offline. I believe that social media companies have a responsibility to provide content creators with a platform that is free from editorial and political censorship… and that includes Google… It’s time to Be More Elon!”

The viral success of Rose’s initiative underlines the significant influence of digital forums in today’s political narratives and the pressing issues surrounding free speech and censorship.
