Elon Musk’s Previous Tweets Provide Clues Regarding Twitter’s New Owner

Elon Musk’s Previous Tweets Provide Clues: It’s just one of several tweets that reveal a little bit about the thoughts of Twitter’s new owner and main moderator. Past tweets from Musk, who can be playful, confrontational, and occasionally careless, demonstrate how he has used social media to promote his enterprises, hit back at detractors, and enhance his reputation as an outspoken billionaire.

Musk joined Twitter in 2009 and currently ranks third among all accounts with more than 112 million followers after former president Barack Obama and Canadian musician Justin Bieber. Before the $ 44 billion deal was completed last week, he had long entertained the idea of buying the platform.

Musk hasn’t provided any information about the adjustments he plans to make at Twitter, but he has already made numerous layoffs. However, he has stated that he wants to turn Twitter into a safe haven for free speech. He has stated that he disagrees with the platform’s choice to exclude former President Donald Trump for encouraging violence before the assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

When Musk first revealed his plans to acquire Twitter earlier this year, he wrote, “I hope that even my toughest opponents remain on Twitter, because that is what free expression means.

Musk uses his Twitter account to share business news and promote his companies as the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. He ruminates about trade and technology, but he has also published jokes about women’s breasts and once compared the prime minister of Canada to Hitler. Regularly commenting on world affairs, he tweeted in March 2020, “The coronavirus epidemic is ridiculous.”

He tweeted the same month that cases would soon cease to exist and that youngsters were mainly immune to the illness.

Musk has also commented on other significant news events via his Twitter account, with varying degrees of success.

Musk angered Ukrainian authorities this past fall when he floated a hypothetical peace agreement on Twitter. According to Musk’s proposal, Ukraine would be forced to abandon its intentions to join NATO and Russia would be allowed to maintain Crimea, which it annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

Musk also offered that residents of other territories that Russia had forcibly invaded vote on whether Russia or Ukraine should rule those territories; this was opposed by pro-Ukraine activists as rewarding Russia for its illegal assault.

According to Paul Barrett, a disinformation researcher and the deputy director of New York University‘s Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, “the danger here is that in the name of ‘free speech,’ Musk will turn back the clock and make Twitter into a more potent engine of hatred, divisiveness, and misinformation.”

Stern singled out Musk’s remarks regarding Ukraine as being especially troubling. He warned, “This is not going to be nice.”

Days after purchasing Twitter, Musk sparked yet another controversy when he shared a link to a piece that promoted an absurd conspiracy theory about the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband. Despite the fact that officials claimed the suspect confessed to targeting the speaker and did not know her husband, the report implied that Paul Pelosi and his attacker were in a relationship.

Later, Musk removed the tweet without giving a reason.

Musk has a history of using his Twitter account as a weapon to lash out at detractors or those he disagrees with, as when he called a diver in Thailand who was trying to save boys trapped in a cave a “pedo” (short for pedophile). The diver had earlier made fun of Musk’s plan to rescue the boys using a submarine. Musk later claimed he never intended “pedo” to be taken to mean “pedophile” after winning a defamation lawsuit brought by the diver.
