On Tuesday, 26 April, world’s richest man, Musk bought a 100 per cent stake in Twitter for approx $44 billion and all of it in cash.
Twitter was evaluating Musk’s offer for the last few weeks. Earlier he had said Twitter has “extraordinary potential” and he wanted to unlock it all.
Earlier, Musk had openly criticised some of the policies of Twitter, saying that the content moderators on the platform are “too involved” and how free speech has been hampered on the micro-blogging site. It is expected that easing content moderators on Twitter is something that is on cards for the microblogging website.
After striking a deal to buy Twitter, Musk tweeted, “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.”
He further said that he also wants to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating spam bots and authenticating all humans.
