Elon Musk promises technical improvements and freer speech on Twitter

Billionaire Elon Musk caused a veritable earthquake earlier this month after it was reported that the $44 billion offer to buy Twitter had been accepted.

That controversy is unlikely to cool down, as Musk made clear in a series of tweets on Saturday that he’s going to bring about some major changes.

Specifically, Musk pledged to “be super focused on hardcore software engineering” and make other technical improvements.

“I strongly believe that all managers in a technical area must be technically excellent. Managers in software must write great software or it’s like being a cavalry captain who can’t ride a horse!” he added.

Musk linked to a Fortune magazine article which said that the employment website Glassdoor has seen a 263% in interest in employment at Twitter.

What’s more, Musk has also stressed that his takeover of Twitter will result in significant changes to how content is regulated on the platform.

Musk says he’s going on “the warpath”

That was something he discussed with the Associated Press last Monday during an interview at New York City’s annual Met Gala.

“Well, I mean, the goal that I have, should everything come to fruition with Twitter, is to have a service that is broadly — is as broadly inclusive as possible where ideally most of America is on it and talking!” the Tesla CEO explained.

“I think just generally, the — I’m looking for something that’s like I said as broadly inclusive as possible, that’s as trusted as possible as a system, and I hope we are successful in that regard,” he continued.

“I’ve also vowed this publicly that we have to get rid of the bots, trolls, scams, and everything,” Musk stated, saying that such problems are “obviously diminishing the user experience and we don’t want people to get tricked out of their money and that kind of thing.”

The business tycoon went on to stress that he would be aggressive in pursuing his goal and promised to go on “the warpath.”
