Would Elon Musk use his power as the richest man in the world to elevate Twitter above competitors like Facebook, YouTube, and WhatsApp?
Billionaire Elon Musk has said there will be no changes to Twitter’s content moderation policies for now after completing his $44bn (£38.1bn) takeover of the platform.
“To be super clear, we have not yet made any changes to Twitter’s content moderation policies,” he tweeted.
Twitter rules will alter over time, according to Elon Musk, who also stressed that they are still the same for the time being. A link to the Twitter community rules was given in Musk’s tweet. The new owner of Twitter has already discussed the creation of a new moderation committee with a range of perspectives, which will ultimately determine how content is moderated on the platform.
Despite reinstating other significant people on the platform including former President Donald Trump, the fact still remains that if the concept of “paid subscription” is in place people will keep running away from the platform.
The CEO of Tesla also said he would reevaluate Twitter’s policy on lifetime bans, which could have an effect on civic dialogue and the political climate. Additionally, he expressed his willingness to clean up the platform of bots.
