Elon musk future predictions on twitter.
Twitter on Monday night confirmed that it is going to sell itself to Elon Musk in a deal worth $44 billion.
While it will take some time for the deal to close, Elon Musk is already talking about his plans for the social media site.
These plans are the reiteration of what we have heard from Musk, who also happens to be the world’s richest person, in the last 10-odd days since he made his offer to buy Twitter.
Once the deal competes, which is supposed to happen by the end of 2022, Twitter will cease to exist as a publicly listed company.
Instead, it will become a private company fully owned by Elon Musk. Only time will tell which way Twitter will go, but as far as Musk’s plan is concerned, he wants to turn it into a true town square where everyone can debate and say things without risking censorship or blocking.
At least that is what Musk says in his statement. Here is what he says, “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” said Mr. Musk.
“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.
Twitter has tremendous potential I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
Free speech on Twitter: This is the ultimate goal of Elon Musk. He believes that everyone should be able to say what they want to say on Twitter without running into censorship or block. Although, previously he did qualify that by free speech he meant everything that was legal.
Defeat for bots: It is well known that Twitter has millions of bot accounts. Musk believes that he can get rid of these bots by using advanced AI techniques to identify them. The challenge, however, would be to differentiate between real bots and Twitter users who act like bots.
Blue ticks for all: Apart from getting rid of bot, Musk also plans to authenticate ALL human users of Twitter.
Open-source algorithms: And finally, Musk is intending to focus on transparency. He believes that Twitter is an important part of life in our world and current times and it needs to be transparent in how it handles the content its users generate.
