Musk has given a glimpse of what kind of changes will be. Immediately after buying the shares, he asked his 80 million followers on Twitter if they wanted an edit button.

Many users have been demanding the edit button in Twitter for a long time. Its founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey said two years ago that Twitter might never have an edit button.

A few days ago, Musk also conducted a poll on Twitter in which he asked whether Twitter strictly adheres to the principle of freedom of expression. In response, 70 percent of the people said ‘no’. In another poll, he asked if Twitter’s algorithm should be open source, 83% answered yes. More than 10 lakh people took part in both the polls.

Then he wrote in a tweet that Twitter is like a ‘public town square’ which does not follow the principle of freedom of expression. Musk may have been a critic of Twitter, but he also uses it extensively. He has eight crore followers. No other company’s CEO has so many followers in the world.

On Friday, Musk informed the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), the regulator of the US stock market, about the purchase of Twitter’s shares. Experts agree that it would have been more difficult to create a new company and make it as popular as Twitter than Twitter. That’s why he decided to buy the shares of Twitter itself.

There is a rule in the US that if an investor buys 5% or more shares of a company, then he has to inform the SEC.

After Musk, some activist investors may also buy a stake in Twitter and pressurize the company to make changes.

Its founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey’s shareholding in Twitter is only 2.3%. He suddenly resigned in November last year. In his place, Indian-origin Parag Agarwal was made the CEO, who was earlier the Chief Technology Officer in the company.

Some people believe that this social media platform did not take enough steps to stop misinformation. Some people also oppose its imposition of censor on someone’s thoughts.
