So, on Monday, Twitter announced that its board of directors agreed to Elon Musk’s offer to buy the social network for $44 billion. And accordingly, one of the most influential social networks is now in the hands of the richest man in the world. Of course, Elon is an active user himself, and on the same day he became the owner of the network, he tweeted that he hoped “even my worst critics remain on Twitter because that is what free speech means.”
Elon promised to make the platform a better place, protecting the freedom of speech of all users. However, people doubt if spending S44 billion to buy the site can make any change. Elon has been actively criticizing efforts to moderate speech on the service. Now that he has become its owner, we’re curious to see what he will do to improve the service. But for now, we’re more interested to see how people on Twitter react to this news. Let’s scroll down and check it out.
