Elon Musk’s $44 million bid for Twitter, the social media powerhouse, has been accepted, and he says it will be a beacon for free speech.
A Roadblock Ahead
According to one tech expert, Tesla’s CEO knows virtually little about free speech and content regulation in the context of running one of the world’s top social media organizations.
A Closer Look At It
Mike Masnick, the founder of Techdirt, deconstructed a TED interview Elon Musk gave with Chris Anderson shortly after his Twitter proposal became public.
Masnick says that Musk’s basic vision of how free speech and social media should work is comparable to that of early social media specialists who discovered that their beliefs didn’t match reality.
Hoping this could bring things to light, Elon Musk might have to consider a few things before going all out on big decisions for the company.
