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.
