*Musk buys Twitter in the blink of an eye but the changes will thrill you*
- Criticism background
- Coming Changes
- Free Speech
- Content Moderation
- Removal of Spamboat
- Account Authentication
The world's richest guy has taken over the world's most influential social media company at the price of 44 billion dollars. "I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spambots, and authenticating all humans." These words by Elon Musk confirmed that Twitter is now becoming a privately held company which is going to be owned by him. This will bring a huge and dynamic change in the history of the most popular microblogging platform Twitter, which has 21.7 crores active users. As in the current scenario, Twitter is underperforming due to many reasons. Primarily since the month of October 2021, there has been a lot of criticism and debate coming into the news regarding privacy, blocking, freedom of speech, and many other issues like account deactivation, fake accounts, and spam on Twitter. The Twitter board has accepted the proposal of Elon Musk and reconfirmed that it is now going to be owned by him. This news has given a high rise in the share market of Twitter.
Now a big question arises…What and How will the change create revolution in the social mediums ?
Tesla wheels couldn’t wait to run twitter at the perfect pace.
The announcement made via Elon Musk’s tweet, answers the question very clearly that Free speech will be at the top of his bucket list. Basically, he is pointing towards the freedom of speech and expression that must be alive on the platform because a large group of the population now has their own opinions and want it to get publicized. He understands that Free Speech is the bedrock of a functioning Democracy. Twitter being the Digital Town Square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated needs to get the vitals to reach a perfect audience.
Elon Musk is also known for his free speech and now he is holding a social media platform which clearly makes sense that in the coming days Twitter will be all about transparency and more opinions to get a room.
Now, let’s talk about some major change is channelizing the platform and that will be Content Moderation. An edit option will be provided to the user for their post after publishing it and their content will get edited easily. This step brings a change in your content or tweet if you wish to do accordingly as real-time trends.
Coming to the next big change which is going to happen when Musk will be leading this is removal and restriction of the spambot. This will bring more efficiency and transparency to Twitter. Fake followers on different user profiles will not be existing anymore. This will decrease the list of followers which is present on your profile if they are not organic. The last but not the least change which you will see is the authentication of your profile with a blue tick. Now it's not impossible for a common man to get his or her profile verified on Twitter. Musk said that all real human users will be verified and this step will make Twitter a more genuine and communicative platform.
Talking about the genuinity on Twitter, Musk has plans for incorporating End - to - End Encryption on DMs of Twitter so that spying or hacking of the personal messages gets controlled.
Oh!!! We missed the MAJOR - Elon has turned himself on for gaining more public trust by providing a politically neutral platform.
If all goes well, we hope to get a platform where an individual's opinion will be celebrated, not favoritism. We wish the Musketeer all the luck to get Twitter a good Mask.
