Elon Musk Talks Twitter Changes but Leaves Room for Serious Concern – Opinion

Though you probably weren’t even aware because you have better things to focus on, multitudes of rich and famous people gathered in New York City on Monday evening for the annual Met Gala. The Met Gala is one of the most outrageous cultural spectacles. Those with too much money and ego make every effort to appear absurd and exude their arrogance.

Last year, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed up in a dress that read “Tax the Rich” while having her own team of servants. This was one of the most absurd and bizarre moments in political history.

Regardless, Elon Musk was at this year’s event, and he was asked about where he sees Twitter going after his purchase.

These seem to be reasonable goals. Twitter’s rules, which are highly subjective and selectively enforced, are not intended to be inclusive. Liberals can speak all manner of degrading things, and are rarely punished. But if you are a conservative who says a man can’t be a woman, that’s an automatic ban if you are popular enough to draw the attention of the censors.

Twitter’s biggest improvement could simply be to apply the rules equally. That seems to be what Musk wants to do, and it’s a good thing. This will allow Musk to fulfill his second wish, which is for the platform to be entertaining, informative, and humorous.

Still, there’s one thing he said that should cause serious concern. If you watch the video, he qualifies his comments by noting that he wants to do those things “assuming everything gets done.” That pretty clearly indicates that this thing isn’t actually finalized yet. While financing may not be possible, there is a possibility of the Twitter Board backing off. We know that on Musk’s end, he can back out for the cost of $1 billion. You’d think that applies the other way as well.

Hopefully, he’s just being overly cautious. If you aren’t on Twitter, you’ve missed out on a wild last few weeks. Many old accounts are back, there is more freedom and better overall site. It would be very disappointing to see everyone’s feet removed. This is not only because there might be fewer memes but also because social media has a crucial role in the political fights. Musk’s takeover of Twitter will be good news for conservative politics as well as the spread of information.

It’d be a big letdown to have come this far only to see the far-left return to its position of power. In the meantime, though, I’m going to remain optimistic. Musk always seems like a man with a plan, and I don’t think he’s looking to flush money down the toilet here. It is likely that the deal will go through.
