Users and Advertisers on Twitter must now brace up for sweeping changes on Twitter, as the new Chief of Twitter Elon Musk will pursue his dream for his new baby – he began by sacking top 4 executives and stated that the bird is free.
Will Twitter be the Twitter we all know? or will we see sea change. One has to wait. But the change has begun. Elon took over twitter announcing on his handle new chief Twitt and also stated sinking in. The $44 billion acquisition follows after over six months of going back and forth over the deal. So, what’s in store for Twitter users? What can we expect?
The first big move by Musk was to bring about change in leadership. He has removed chief executive Parag Agrawal, who went to court to hold the billionaire to the terms of a deal he tried to escape. Other exits include Vijaya Gadde, the head of legal, policy and trust; Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal, who joined Twitter in 2017; and Sean Edgett, who has been general counsel at Twitter since 2012. Edgett was reportedly escorted out of the building.
Elon Musk and Parag Agrawal had lot of disagreements, and the lawsuit made things even more evident as they expressed displeasure on social media extensively. “I don’t have confidence in management,”
Musk said in one early filing about the deal. “You are free to tweet ‘is twitter dying?’ or anything else about Twitter,” Parag Agrawal wrote, “but it’s my responsibility to tell you that it’s not helping me make Twitter better in the current context.”
“What did you get done this week?” Elon Musk took a public swipe at Parag and also was in two minds about the deal as he wrote, “I’m not joining the board this is a waste of time.”
Elon Musk begins his dream journey for Twitter
So, what’s Musk’s dream Twitter. When he entered Twitter office he wrote and shared to twitter users: Twitter because the future of civilisation must have a “common digital town square”. “There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right wing and far left wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society”.
“I didn’t do it because it would be easy. I didn’t do it to make more money. I did it to try to help humanity, whom I love,” Elon Musk stated.
Musk’s statements leading up to his purchase of the social-media company have led many to expect the billionaire will restore Trump’s account and reinstate other users who have been blocked for breaking rules on offensive or dangerous content.
