Elon musk Considers Building A New Social Media Platform

Share post:

Elon Musk has hinted at the possibility of having a new social media platform.

This was in response to a Twitter user’s question on whether he would consider building a social media platform.

The said social media platform will consist of an open-source algorithm and one that would prioritize free speech with minimal propaganda.

Elon Musk who is a prolific Twitter user pulled up a poll on free speech and its importance to democracy. He went on to ask Twitter users to vote if Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle. A total of 2,035,924 Twitter users took part in the poll and 70.4% picked “No” while 29.6% picked “Yes.”

Following the poll, Musk tweeted, “given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy. What should be done?”

Elon Musk then asked if a new platform is needed. However, many have criticized the call for new platforms that can help push the free speech agenda.
