“the bird is freed.”Elon Musk on Twitter as he officially takes over the social media platform Twitter.
Why It Matters: Musk, currently the wealthiest man in the world, now sits at the helm of the massive social media platform during a time when social media platforms have come under fire for editorial judgments and what's perceived by some as selective punitive actions. Will his leadership change Twitter's relevance and popularity? TBD.
Here's one of his first Tweets: "Twitter will be forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints. No major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before that council convenes."
