On Saturday, March 27, Elon Musk, the billionaire tweeted that Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc.’s TSLA.O, is “seriously considering” building a new social media platform.
Musk said in response to a question from a Twitter user that he would consider a social media platform consisting of open-source algorithms that would prioritize free speech and have minimal publicity.
Musk has recently been critical of Twitter, a social media platform, and its policies.
Musk says that Twitter is undermining democracy by not adhering to the principles of free speech.
At the same time, he posted a poll on Twitter asking users if they believe Twitter adheres to the principles of free speech, and more than 70 percent of them voted “no.”
If Musk decides to go ahead and create a new platform, he will join a growing number of technology companies. These companies, including Donald Trump’s Truth Social, Twitter rivals Gettr and Parler, and video site Rumble.
Gettr, Parler, Rumble and Truth Social have positioned themselves as advocates of free speech and hope to attract users who feel their views are suppressed on platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google’s YouTube.
