Musk’s Future Vision About Twitter
A vociferous Musk said he wanted to own Twitter since he thinks it’s not showcasing the optimum potential as a platform for free speeches and opinions.

I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots and authenticating all humans.”
The would-be CEO of Twitter has always described himself as a “free-speech absolutist.” He is looking forward to introducing a hands-off approach to content liberalization that would make Twitter a haven of “free speeches.” He quoted on Twitter, “I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means.“
Current CEO Parag Agarwal To Get $42 Million?
