WSGW OnLine Poll: Elon Musk Buys Twitter (results)
(April 27 – May 4)
In a deal worth a reported $44 billion, Twitter will become a private company under the new ownership of Elon Musk.
Musk calls himself a free speech absolutist and has expressed concerns Twitter has strayed from its free speech roots. Musk sent a tweet saying, “I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means”.
Some supporters are ready to welcome changes to Twitter where Musk believes “matters vital to the future of humanity are debated”. Some against Musk suggest he could relax limitations which could open Twitter to an infestation of spams and scams, thereby rendering the platform almost impossible to use.
