How will Twitter change after it was bought by Mask?


3 min read

Elon Musk made an offer to buy Twitter, which was accepted, and the billionaire promised to reduce the level of censorship on the platform. This has led to several questions, about how Mask’s approach will affect the popular micro-blogging platform.

Human rights organizations and groups have expressed concern that a lack of moderation and content management will lead to an increase in hate speech. In addition, many Twitter users are questioning whether previously suspended Twitter accounts will be reactivated. Currently, the most famous person who has been blocked on Twitter is Donald Trump, the former US president.

Musk has been very vocal in the past in his views and criticisms of Twitter’s policy of moderating content, stressing that the platform should be the main forum for free speech.

Will users leave Twitter?


Musk pointed out that he hopes that even his biggest critics will stay on the platform “because that is what freedom of speech means”. Still, some users have threatened to leave Twitter, while some have already done so.

British actress Jameela Jamil, who is best known for her role in the series “The Good Place”, pointed out that she expects the platform to “become a space with even more lawlessness, hatred, xenophobia, fanaticism, and misogyny”.

On the other hand, some users who have a large number of users on the platform point out that they plan to stay on Twitter. “What we know is that if all normal people leave, the situation here will get bad much faster,” Caroline Orr Bueno pointed out.

Will Trump return?

Donald Trump’s Twitter account was permanently terminated last year, after the riots in Washington. However, even if the ban on social networks was lifted, Trump pointed out that he did not plan to return to Twitter. Instead, it will use its Truth Social platform.

“I’m not going to Twitter, I’m going to stay on Truth Social. I hope Elon buys Twitter because he wants to improve it and he’s a good man, but I’m staying on Truth Social,” Trump explained.


A period of uncertainty follows

Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter who is still a board member, said he was happy that the platform would continue to serve for public discussion and conversations, despite not believing anyone should vouch for the owner or run Twitter.

“However, by solving the problem of Twitter being an independent company, Elon is the only solution I trust. I believe in his mission to expand the presence of consciousness,” Dorsey said.

Twitter director Parag Agrawal addressed the company’s employees, telling them that the company’s future is uncertain. “Once the purchase agreement is over, we don’t know in which direction the platform will develop,” Agrawal said.
