With a $44bn deal to buy Twitter, Tesla chief executive Elon Musk now has gained full control over the social network with a strong userbase of 200 million which he has criticized often for not living up to its potential as a platform for “free speech”.

 

 

In a statement he posted to Twitter, Musk stated that “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy” and that Twitter is a platform “where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated”.
