Last week, Tesla and SpaceX also tweeted that “free speech is essential to democracy” and questioned users whether Twitter “strictly adheres to this principle”. Musk wants to launch a social media platform where users can write whatever they want. It is similar to the ideology behind former US President Donald Trump launching his social platform- Social Truth. It was launched for iOS users last month. It has been made available for Android users for now. Trump decided to launch his own social media platform after being banned from Twitter, Facebook and several other social apps.
However, people do not want Musk to develop a new social platform. He wants them to buy Twitter. Commenting on the Tesla CEO’s tweet, several users have said that they should consider buying the microblogging platform.
One of the many users said, “I wish Elon Musk had already bought Twitter.”. Another said, “Hey @elonmusk would you please buy @twitter and return the original market of ideas to this site? We need you to make this happen.”
As Musk also mentioned in his reply, launching a social media platform is just a “serious idea” and that he probably will never launch his own social app or maybe he may.
