Elon Musk hints he might launch his own social media platform

Posted by in category: Elon Musk

Tesla CEO Elon Musk polled Twitter on Saturday, asking whether a new social media platform should be created to challenge Twitter and sparking speculation that the billionaire might be the one to do so.

In a series of tweets on Friday, the Space X founder asked if the time has come for a new platform to replace Twitter, and whether users thought the company ‘adhered to free speech principles.’

He said that, because Twitter serves as ‘the de factor public town square,’ a failure to promote free speech on the app would undermine democracy.
