Elon Musk Buys Twitter: Here's What We Know So Far

The purchase of Twitter was made on Monday (25) by billionaire Elon Musk worth US$ 44 billion, which equates to about R$ 215 billion.

In this way, the social network will become a privately held company. However, official approval from shareholders as well as regulatory bodies is still required.

Despite this, since the billionaire's purchase was communicated, there has been no talk of anything else on the internet other than the new owner of Twitter.

However, the big question that remains at the moment is: what can change on Twitter from now on?

According to Business Insider, some changes may happen. See what they are!

Bot removal

According to Elon Musk, one of the changes he aims to promote on Twitter is the removal of spam bots, which are illegal accounts that apply scams. In fact, for him, this is the biggest problem of the social network.

In a TED magazine this April, Musk said the following: “One priority I would have is to eliminate the spam and scam bots, and the bot armies that are on the net. They make the social network much worse.”

Inclusion of the “edit” button

The billionaire has long been asking Twitter to include an “edit” button for tweets already posted on the social network, at least to correct spelling errors or wrongly added links.

So this is one of the expected changes too and Musk's more than 80 million followers on the social network support this decision, according to research he himself did last month.

Looser moderation of content and accounts

Musk has previously referred to Twitter as a kind of digital public forum. For this reason, he even criticized the platform's decision to ban the profile of Donald Trump, former US president.

Thus, according to the billionaire, in the name of freedom of expression, a more “loose” moderation of content and accounts will be carried out. In this way, a Twitter without many blocks or bans is now expected.

Transparency in the algorithm

Finally, transparency in the algorithm is another expected change from Elon Musk's purchase of Twitter.

Last month, he hinted that the most interesting thing would be to make the algorithm “open source”, that is, freely available so that it can be manipulated by anyone.
