Elon Musk, the Tesla Chief has announced his new dream today, he wish to create an alternative to twitter. The reason he is not happy with Twitter free speech principles. Musk says that he wishes to develop a social media application, and wants to bring a viable alternative to Twitter since the microblogging site is “failing to adhere to free speech principles”.
“Given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy,” Elon Musk noted in an official tweet that he posted over the weekend.
In line with the same, last week, Tesla and SpaceX also tweeted that “free speech is essential to a functioning democracy” and questioned users if Twitter “rigorously adheres to this principle”.
Elon Musk Wants to Launch a Social Media Platform where users can write anything they want
Elon Musk wants to launch a social media platform where users can write anything they want. This is in line with the former US President Donald Trump’s ideology behind launching his social platform — ‘Social Truth’, which was launched for iOS users last month. It is unavailable for Android users for now. Trump decided to launch his own social media platform after he was banned from Twitter, Facebook, and several other social apps.
People, however, do not want Musk to develop a new social platform, instead, buy Twitter. Commenting on the Tesla CEO’s tweet, several users said that he should consider buying the microblogging platform.
