Twitter, according to Elon Musk, could be crucial in the 2024 elections

This month, Twitter plans to release DM updates that include full encryption

Elon Musk, the company’s CEO, claims that the “new Twitter” aims to be fair and unbiased, eliminating favoritism towards any political ideologies.

CEO Elon Musk said that Twitter will probably play a “significant” part in upcoming presidential and other electoral campaigns, both locally and overseas, in an interview with Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.

During the two-part interview, which aired on April 17 and 18, Musk admitted there was uncertainty about the $44 billion acquisition of the social networking site last year.

According to Musk, the “new Twitter” wants to be neutral and unbiased, eliminating favoritism towards any particular political ideology.

He then questioned why Facebook, which was founded by Mark Zuckerberg, did not adhere to the same philosophy, bringing up the couple’s $419 million donation to organizations that encouraged Democratic voter turnout in the 2020 presidential election.

Some things are irreplaceable.
Elon Musk said in a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson that it is still unclear whether his $44 billion purchase of Twitter last year was a wise financial move.

Elon Musk disclosed that the company’s value has just dropped to less than half of the purchase price. Musk emphasized, though, that sustaining free expression and democracy was more significant than achieving financial success.

The degree of purported government agency access to Twitter, including individuals’ private direct messages, also shocked Musk during the discussion. Direct messages are not encrypted, and government agencies can access them, according to Musk. He didn’t go into detail about which departments and agencies were engaged.

In an interview with Fox News, Elon Musk expressed his opinion that Twitter will have a “significant” impact on the upcoming presidential election as well as other elections both domestically and internationally.

He also acknowledged that he is not sure whether the purchase of Twitter last year was a wise financial move, but insisted that protecting free speech came before money.

When he took over the network last year, Musk was astounded to discover that government agencies had complete access to everything on Twitter, including users’ private direct conversations.

Additionally, Musk said he is worried about the hazards that could be posed to society and humanity by advanced AI. He has led demands for AI labs to immediately halt training systems that are more potent than ChatGPT-4 for at least six months.
