Elon Musk Offers Hints He Might Launch A ‘New Platform’ To Take To Twitter

Tesla billionaire and SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk made a strong hint on Friday that he might try to launch a new social media platform to compete with Twitter.

Musk seems to point out that his motivations for such a project are bias and censorship on top of the existing platform.

After suggesting that Twitter “fundamentally undermines democracy” by failing to protect freedom of expression, Musk conducted an informal poll on the platform, ironically, to ask : “Freedom of speech is essential to a functioning democracy. Do you believe that Twitter strictly adheres to this principle? ”

More than 2 million people responded to the poll with 70.4% saying that Twitter is not following the guidelines, The Daily Wire report.

“The consequences of this poll will be very important,” Musk continued. “Please vote carefully.”

Musk followed up on Saturday’s poll, noting: “Given that Twitter serves as a de facto public town square, failure to adhere to free speech principles essentially undermines the platform. democracy. What to do? ”

He asked: “Need a new platform?”

“Buy twitter,” political commentator Mike Cernovich tweeted in response. “If you are a leftist, make death threats against conservatives. or organize a riot, Twitter respects your right to free speech. Twitter also respects freedom of speech for media hoaxes like when every major outlet frames an innocent Covington high school student.”

Musk replied: “It doesn’t sound very balanced.”

On Thursday, Musk said Twitter’s algorithm should be open source, to which the vast majority of respondents agreed.

“I’m worried about the fact that bias in the ‘Twitter algorithm’ has a big impact on public discourse,” continued Musk. “How do we know what’s really going on?”
