After months of waffling, lawsuits, verbal mudslinging, and the near miss of a full-blown trial, Elon Musk, the all-father of Tesla and SpaceX, recently won the Twitter acquisition for a $44B deal and immediately fired all Twitter’s top executives, including former CEO of Twitter Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal.
Since Musk has always been against Twitter’s management and moderation policies, he proposed to alter moderation policies and restructure the platform. However, no action has yet been taken.
Musk, now in charge of Twitter, is concerned about trolls littering Twitter with speech and Nazi memes, raising fears that the social media could turn into a troll platform. Sources show the use of the N-word on Twitter spiked by nearly 500%.
According to The Washington Post’s research, one user said, “Elon now controls Twitter. Unleash the racial slurs.”
Another user said:
I can freely express how much I hate [racial slur] … now, thank you Elon.
After just a few hours under the new management, Twitter was swamped with racist posts, with others expecting the ban appeal of former U.S President Donald Trump’s account and, reportedly, the massive employee layoffs.
On Musk’s takeover, he mentioned that Twitter would be forming a council for content moderation with widely diverse viewpoints, and no major content decisions or account reinstatements would happen before forming a council.
Ultimately, the controversy surrounding Musk’s acquisition of Twitter has lowered workplace morale and resulted in a wave of recent staff departures. The rumors have raised questions about how significant layoffs affect Twitter’s day-to-day operations, especially its security and safety capabilities.
