The board of directors of Twitter has finally decided to sell the company to Elon Musk, the richest man in the world and CEO of Tesla, in an operation valued at 44,000 million dollars (about 41,000 million euros). On Twitter, the network of conversation, the personality of the new owner has provoked a huge debate and several global trends. There are those who believe that Musk will take the company to new goals, there are those who think that the only alternative is to flee Twitter forever and there are few who do not speak out. Musk has gotten away with it again. The tycoon made the offer public 11 days ago, after it was reported in early April that he had acquired a 9.2% stake in the company. After the sale, the company will cease to be listed on the Stock Exchange. Musk’s own pitch about Twitter is that he buys it to make it better, not for money or influence. The most concrete analysis of his purchase was made on April 14, in a TED talk, the same day your offer was made public. His thesis is that Twitter needs more clarity in the rules, more transparency in the algorithms and more freedom in speech. The details he offered, however, were scant.
His ultimate intention, always according to his words, is to save democracy: “It is very important that there is an inclusive scenario for freedom of expression,” he said. “Twitter has become a kind of de facto public square, so it’s really important that people believe and perceive that they can speak freely within the confines of the law,” he explained. This resource is indispensable both for “the functioning of democracy in the United States and in many other countries,” he added. In the video that accompanies this news, social network experts Carmela Ríos and Jordi Pérez Colomé analyze the tycoon’s reasons for taking over Twitter and the chances of success they see for his plans.
