Elon Musk ‘needs these big changes’ in Twitter…, ‘After a long preparation’ now it’s his turn

Twitter was bought by Elon Musk for $54.20 per share and now he has become its owner. Now let’s see what changes can be expected at this “Digital Town Square” :-

Will there be less content moderation?

Elon Musk has called Twitter’s content moderation policy against freedom of expression. In a Twitter poll conducted in March, he asked users, “Freedom of expression is essential to democracy, do you think Twitter lives up to this principle?”

70 percent of the people who participated in this poll gave the answer in no. After this, Elon Musk asked the question whether a new platform is needed?

While conservatives are happy that Elon Musk will lose control, some human rights activists fear the promotion of hate speech.

Banned users will come back?

Political activists are hopeful that the users banned under Elon Musk’s regime will return, including Donald Trump, who was banned after the attack on the US Parliament in January last year. The former US President has no desire to come to Twitter, however. Trump told Fox News that he would rather focus on his platform, Truth Social.

But many Twitter users are asking whether changing the ownership of the 16-year-old company will bring back the suspended accounts? Twitter suspended several accounts

Will there be an edit button for tweets?

Elon Musk shared the idea of ​​the edit button in his Twitter poll on April 4. Do you want edit button? He asked in his post. Yes or No was misspelled, to imply that its use would allow users to correct typos and make other changes in their posts. More than four million votes were cast in this poll, with most supporting the idea.

Twitter has experimented with this function and is offering this option with its special “Blue” subscription. But Elon Musk wants to give it to all the users.

Will Twitter’s algorithms be open-sourced?

In a tweet on March 24, Elon Musk suggested that Twitter’s algorithms should be open source. This was also polled and 83% of the one million votes said yes to the idea.

Algorithms are used to determine which tweets to promote, and which to hide from users. Elon Musk wants to make it open sourced so that there is no change behind the scenes. He also suggested putting the code on GitHub so that people can see its shortcomings and suggest changes.

Will people leave Twitter?

Not everyone is happy with Elon Musk buying Twitter. Although Elon Musk has said that even his biggest critics should remain on Twitter, several users have threatened to leave Twitter. One of them is British actress Jameela Jamil. He says this deal will eventually make Twitter, beyond the law, a haven for hatred, bigotry and misogyny.”
