No Banned Twitter Accounts To Be Restored Before Review, Says Elon Musk

New Delhi: Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who closed the Twitter deal of USD 44 billion on Thursday night and acquired the micro-blogging platform said on Saturday that no changes have been made to Twitter’s content moderation policies yet. Responding to his own tweet where he informed about forming a content moderation council for Twitter with widely diverse viewpoints, Musk said, “To be super clear, we have not yet made any changes to Twitter’s content moderation policies.”

After Elon Musk took charge, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and finance chief Ned Segal have left the company’s San Francisco headquarters and will not be returning as Musk began the purge of executives after closing the expected deal.

The Tesla and Space X owner is expected to remain CEO of Twitter in the interim period but may eventually cede the role in the longer term, as per media reports. Musk ahead of his USD 44 billion Twitter acquisition deal had dismissed speculation about why he’d buy the micro-blogging platform and his thoughts on advertising.

“The reason I acquired Twitter is that it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence. There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right-wing and far left-wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society,” he said in a statement on Thursday.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Musk walked the halls of the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco, carrying the bowl of a sink that garnered massive views over the internet. Musk tweeted a video of himself carrying a kitchen sink and wrote, “let that sink in!”

Furthermore, Elon Musk also changed his Twitter profile to read “Chief Twit” shortly after he hinted at going forward with the Twitter acquisition deal.
