What Would Elon’s Twitter Takeover Look Like?


It probably won’t surprise you that Twitter’s a bit of a mess right now. Last week, billionaire Elon Musk made a play to buy the whole company, stating that his goal was to turn it into a bastion for free speech absolutists. Regardless, Twitter is also in the process of undergoing some changes that are posed to shake up the platform, with or without Musk’s involvement.
