On Thursday, 27 October, 2022, after completing his $44 billion purchasing deal, the world’s richest man, Elon Musk took his official Twitter account and wrote,
“The bird is freed.”
Later he shared a Tweet in which he explained the reason for buying the largest social networking platform.
“Our platform must be warm and welcoming to all, where you can choose your desired experience according to your preferences, just as you can choose, for example, to see movies or play video games ranging from all ages to mature.”
Elon 51, said that from now the users of Twitter needs to keep one thing in their mind that all the things they do will have consequences.
“Twitter obviously cannot become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences.”
He wrote in his open letter that according to him advertising is very important because it can help in showing the real worth of the product or service.
“For this to be true, it is essential to show Twitter users advertising that is as relevant as possible to their needs, as low relevancy ads are spam, but highly relevant ads are actually content!”

While sharing his motive behind acquiring the Twitter the business magnate wrote,
“There has been much speculation about why I bought Twitter and what I think about advertising. Most of it is wrong. The reason I acquired the company is because it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence.”
Musk also stated that he didn’t buy Twitter to make money from it, but he bought it because he wanted to ‘help humanity’ that he loves.
“And I do so with humility, recognizing that failure in pursuing this goal, despite our best efforts, is a very real possibility.”
When the 51-year-old billionaire took complete control on Twitter and then announced the news officially, now many people started worrying about that what changes he will make to the platform in future.

Large exodus happening on this platform. Not sure if I stay or not. Leaning toward staying, but if today is a sign of things to come, not sure what the point is. Freedom of speech is great. Hate speech intended to incite harm, (with no consequences) ain’t what I signed up for.
