Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, has reached an agreement with Twitter, after which he will become the sole owner of a micro-blogging website.
Prior to Elon Musk’s ownership, Twitter was governed by a board of directors, most of whom were Twitter’s major shareholders.
But now Elon Musk will be the sole owner of Twitter and his decisions will be based on the company’s decisions and policies, because Twitter will no longer operate as before but as a private company.
This begs the question: what will change after Twitter is bought by Elon Musk and will celebrities leave Twitter or will people such as Donald Trump return to Twitter?
While Elon Musk is the richest man in the world in 2022, he is also a controversial figure like former US President Donald Trump, who openly criticizes politicians, social leaders, and others, including transgender people.
He also spread misinformation about Corona several times during the Corona epidemic and is also known as a proud man.
After the purchase of Twitter by such a person, ordinary users around the world are worried about what will happen to Twitter now and what will change there?
The New York Times, the Washington Post, and the BBC quoted analysts as saying that the terms of the agreement reached between Twitter and Elon Musk were subject to significant changes.
Freedom of expression
According to the New York Times, the biggest change will be “freedom of expression”, which means there will no longer be a policy on Twitter to remove hateful posts or violent videos.
Elon Musk has been accused of restricting freedom of expression on Twitter for some time, and now that he has bought it, it is thought he will leave the platform open and everyone will have their say. He will be able to speak without any maintenance.
Concerns have been raised about what would happen if someone spoke out against one’s religion or belief in the name of ‘freedom of expression’. And what happens when someone shares hateful material against a weaker class, person, country or region?
It is thought that Elon Musk will also change Twitter’s algorithm, after which ordinary users will be able to know what kind of propaganda material went viral and who started it.
Many other changes will be made to the algorithm as well.
In addition, Elon Musk recently said that if he succeeds in buying Twitter, he will either deactivate the “boot account” or delete it.
Can Donald Trump return?
According to the BBC, after the purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk, it is thought that the account of former US President Donald Trump will be restored.
His account was permanently shut down by Twitter in 2020 for spreading false information.
However, Donald Trump has said that even if his account is restored now, he does not intend to return to Twitter, as he has recently launched his own social networking site called Truth Social.
Will celebrities leave Twitter?
According to the BBC, several prominent personalities had said before Elon Musk bought Twitter that if the richest man succeeds in buying Twitter, she will leave Twitter.
Pakistani-born British model Jamila Jamil has also announced that she will be leaving Twitter after becoming the owner of Elon Musk.
Will it make a difference to ordinary consumers?
After Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, the most troubled are ordinary users, who fear that Twitter may be shut down, but their concerns are unnecessary.
Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter will have no affect on ordinary users, but its policies may affect important personalities, countries, states, institutions, beliefs, religions, and societies.
