Elon Musk has officially become the owner of the social media giant Twitter. Freeing the bird, as he put it shortly after, the Tesla boss also detailed his intentions yesterday.

  • “The bird is freed,” tweeted Musk in a clear reference to Twitter’s logo after he assumed ownership of the company.
  • According to a Reuters report, citing sources familiar with the matter, he also fired the company’s CEO, Parag Agrawal, the Chief Financial Officer, Ned Segal, as well as the chief of legal affairs and policy Vijaya Gadde.
  • Interestingly enough, Vijaya Gadde was also the one who made the decision to permanently suspend Donald Trump.
  • Yesterday, Musk also shared an open letter to advertisers on the platform, outlining his intentions, and hinting at a potential subscription-based model.

Twitter obviously cannot become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences! In addition to adhering to the laws of the land, 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.
