twitter still sucks ngl
i dont think him buying it will fix anything
In my opinion, Elon Musk purchasing Twitter is concerning. Musk claims that his goal with Twitter is to protect democracy, but it is also important to not make Twitter a platform where criminals and extremists that can incite violence are free to do so, as democracy is for the welfare of the people. In addition, his purchase furthers the power imbalance in America between the wealthy and the rest of the country. Elon Musk has so much money that he can dominate an industry by purchasing most of the major companies, reminiscent of monopolists! If one person owns companies that are being used by 95% of the population- can Musk's control over the U.S be compared to that of the president? If the wealthy have more power than the people, isn't democracy being threatened?
No opinion, never and will use Twitter anyways.
I think that him buying it can either turn into something bad or something good because since he owns it he can do whatever showing that he can completely change the platform. He can really make it bad because he says that it will be more explicit and more less protective.
i think he can do whatever he wants. if he has the money he might as well go for it. he obviously knows what hes doing and no matter his plans, it won't change twitter much so its not our place to judge.
he wasted his money
don't really care since I never use twitter anyways.
honestly i dont even use twitter so it really doesnt effect me, elon musk can do what he wants with it. i doubt he will change twitter much but if he does it probably isnt going to effect anything
twitter sucks, ngl. Elon basically wasted his money lmao, twitter is literally where so many people gather, which includes so many stupid people.
I don't really have an opinion on this topic. Though I think it's kinda concerning how people like Elon Musk can buy big companies that are very well known on social media. I think him buying Twitter and planning to improve it won't actually change much for the better.
I have twitter, but i never really use it. But I dont think Elon Musk buying it is going to help anything. Maybe it will just increase his wealth.
i dont use twitter so i dont really care what he does to the community. but i think it was a waste of money to buy a social media platform. the only things he may gain from that is his status and popularity that he already has enough of. he's owned and been successful in many businesses so he knows how to make this one a success too, so it may be good for twitter.
In my opinion, I think he’s trying to get power for the platform but I don’t think it will work because the younger generations like me don’t use Twitter and a lot of people hate Twitter. So it probably won’t work.
i never use twitter but i hear about
In my opinion I don't think Elon Musk would make the money back that he brought twitter with. I don't know how to feel about him buying twitter either.
I think Elon Musk buying Twitter won't really affect anything. He's said and done many things in the past that would start drama, but it didn't do a lot for his net worth. I have Twitter but I don't use it, so I don't really have an opinion.
Although I don't use Twitter, some thoughts I have is that it can be dangerous if Elon Musk bought Twitter. As said in the article, there shouldn't be any owners owning the public platform but instead should just be a platform where people share some influential world news. Elon Musk plans to increase more democracy by giving people more of a free speech on social media which instead will only spread false information and rumors more easily and faster. Whatever he does to Twitter, it's mostly for his own good and trying to gain more wealth.
I'm not too bothered about Elon Musk buying twitter because I don't use it so I'm not worried. Elon Musk can use his money to buy whatever, there is a reasoning behind it and an idea he has for it. However, if it somehow gets worse after, then I don't think its too major because there are also other platforms that people could use like Facebook.
I don't really have an opinion on Elon Musk buying Twitter because I have Twitter but I don't use it. Elon Musk probably won't make things better but instead increase his wealth.
elon musk buying twitter does not affect me because i dont really use twitter. this may affect people who do use twitter because he says twitter has potential. he has a goal and he thinks it would make twitter better so it might get better.
I think elon musk buying twitter could be a good thing, and I don't care that much because I don't use twitter and it's unlikely that he will change that much about twitter.
The reason about him buying twitter might be really petty but it is his money and its none of my business
In my opinion i dont think elon musk buying twitter will affect the platform a lot. I think elon buying twitter will just delete the bot accounts.
i don't use twitter so i don't really bothered by what he is doing but at this point he is only in it for the money he don't care about making twitter better
I don't use twitter so I don't really care about what's going to happen but I do think that not much is going to change about it.
I believe Elon Musk owning twitter will have a negative effect on twitter, allowing people to be more uncensored with what they say and cause the already enormous gap between wealthy and everybody else larger. While this may increase Musk's popularity and fame, I don't really understand the point of spending 44 billion dollars on a social media website that was starting to be taken over by other social media websites, so I believe this was a negative effect towards everyone except for the previous owners of twitter,
I think that Elon Musk buying twitter will do absolutely nothing in fixing the app or making it better. In fact, I think it might become worse
I don't use twitter so I don't really care about what he does with the platform but I believe he won't make it any better. He may even make it worse but I don't think it is my place to judge.
I think Elon Musk wasted his money on twitter. Twitter is dead and theres so much bad post already. Elon is rich and probably trying to get more money out of twitter.
I really don't care i'm not rich and i am not Elon musk and i don't use twitter so it doesn't matter to me whatever happens happens i guess
I dont use twitter so i dont care what he does with it but most likely nothing is gonna change in terms of popularity
I don't have a big opinion on this because I do not use or care for twitter but I don't think he will make big changes to this platform.
I'm not really sure what to think. I have no idea what musk wants to do with the platform, and him saying he wants to encourage free speech on it seems like something that's easier said than done without going too far, and it's a statement that can easily be ignored. It sort of seems like an empty promise. However, taking Twitter off of Wall Street is a bit sad, since average people won't be able to profit off of the company's success anymore. Overall, I don't really have an opinion about this purchase, and will continue to not have one until Musk actually doesn something.
I don't like Twitter because I believe it's a toxic platform. However, I'm indifferent towards Elon Musk buying it because I don't think there will be any vast changes. There are bigger issues occurring in our world right now to be contemplating on what a multi-billionaire does with his money.
I don't use Twitter but I think that Elon Musk purchasing Twitter won't change anything about it.
i don't really care happens to twitter mainly because i don't use it often but as long as elon musk is making the platform better then i don't see a problem with it.
I believe Elon Musk's decision on purchasing Twitter is extremely similar to the monopolists controlling society during the Gilded Age. Except, this time it seems that one individual is starting to become an 'almighty' monopolist. Elon Musk states his intentions on being for the sake of democracy, however, an individual like him having as much power and influence as he currently has and may gain in the future contradicts his ideas of the fundamental components of democracy. He seems a bit power hungry and I feel that if this continues, life during the Gilded Age may return.
I don't really care about what happens to twitter, because it doesn't effect me in any way. If Elon Musk wants it, let him have it. He's spending his own money, and if it doesn't go well, its his loss.
i dont use twitter so this doesnt really affect me much and it might affect twitter with new policies or something along those lines
I think Elon Musk buying twitter wasn't really necessary because he was already getting a load of money from buying the stocks. However, it doesn't really matter to me anyways, especially because I don't use twitter. I guess he could do it whatever he wants because he is a millionaire and he just seeks for more wealth.
I dont use twitter or really like the platform, but I dont understand the point of buying it since there's barely anything to gain off twitter unless Elon Musk is gonna add new features to the platform.
I don't have much thought about it since I don't use twitter. I don't think it's a bad thing as Elon Musk said he wants to make twitter better. However, I think he wouldn't make much change.
I dont like the platform twitter so i dont know why Elon Musk even buy twitter but i feel like he wasted his money but overall I dont care
I never use Twitter, so I don't have an opinion.
Buying Twitter was a waste of money in my opinion and it could've been spent on something more important or the problems that the world is facing. Other than that, I don't really care about Twitter all that much since i don't use it. As long as nothing bad happens to Twitter, I'm fine with it.
ngl i think he wasted his money because he will barely gain anything from buying it.
I think elon musk buying twitter won’t really make a difference.the purchase of twitter i think wasn’t throughout by him since he is only going to make small changes to it like adding a edit button.i honestly think that he wasted his money on twitter.although i don’t care what he does,i don’t want him to make huge changes to twitter since i use it almost everyday.but i think no one could have an opinion on this since it’s his money that was wasted.
Twitter in my opinion is just a place where you can say horrid things without getting arrested. But with Elon Musk trying to purchase it doesn't affect me at all. Elon Musk (In my opinion) is most likely doing this just to increase his wealth.
Elon Musk Buying Twitter does not personally affect me, Nor does it /should affect anyone. In all honesty Twitter may be getting a improvement other than the fact now a rich man owns a huge part of social media.
I don't use Twitter and don't have much feelings about it. It just something you know and are like, "Oh, that's cool i guess," and that's it
Elon musk buying Twitter doesn't affect me i dont use it. He just spends money that isn't needed.
I don't use twitter so I really do not care that he's buying it
In my opinion, I feel like Elon Musk purchasing Twitter isn't going to affect me because I don't use it. Even though he stated that he wanted to make Twitter better than ever, I believe that people in our age won't really care since other social media platforms are improving as well, such as Instagram and Snapchat.
Firstly, it doesn't really affect me or my feelings in any way that a rich guy is spending a ton of money to buy something and saying he's promoting "free speech" and "authenticating" the platform. Elon Musk might actually be doing this for a good cause but to me, it just feels like a rich person who has time and money to spare, looking for a next big project to keep himself busy and the world talking about him.
Additionally, I think it's easy for Elon Musk to say whatever he wants now but once he has a say in company decisions, he can and probably will use it to his favor in the future. I don't really use Twitter so it doesn't affect me directly, but I can see how he could assert his influence on the company once he has bought it.
My point of view is that Elon Musk seems passionate about making Twitter safer for free-speech. However, Twitter probably won't improve if Musk doesn't take big actions (stricter safety measures.) He could be spending his money (as a billionaire) on more significant world problems.
Well I don’t really have an opinion, and it doesn’t bother me if he buys Twitter. Elon Musk buying could be a good thing or bad thing, and you don’t know him protecting democracy true or not true. So I don’t have any thought about it, and there is other social media platform that are improving and becoming popular.
I never use Twitter and it doesn't affect me so I don't have a problem with it.
To be honest, I've never used Twitter before so Musk purchasing Twitter does not affect me. I do think he just wants to increase his power and wealth by doing so. He claims he wants Twitter to get better and wants people to be able to say what they want. Hopefully, Twitter does actually get better after Musk purchases it and will not end up as a platform that is just being used so he gains wealth (I don't really think he needs more money anyways). I can't really say at this point if this purchase is a good thing or bad. I just hope he keeps his words and people who like Twitter can still use it as an app they've always liked it as.
I personally do not use twitter, but I think that Elon Musk buying Twitter shows that rich people can do almost anything with their money. Elon Musk could easily buy the major companies and we would all be dependent on this one individual. He would have control over social media and even politics. Elon Musk seems like a pretty decent guy who wants to promote democracy and free speech. However, we may not be so lucky in the future.
idk i feel like he wasted his money on buying twitter, and i don’t use Twitter anyway so i don’t know what’s the point of it
I think that him buying it can either turn into something bad or something good because since he owns it he can do whatever showing that he can completely change the platform. He can really make it bad because he says that it will be less protective.
I think that Elon buying twitter isn't going to help democracy nor is it going to help him make money. I think Elon is just wanting new ways to spend his money. Buying twitter is just like buying a new car for Elon.
I personally don't really care about the situation. Twitter seems like a waste of money and it feels like Elon is just wasting his money because sooner or later people might not even use twitter anymore after he buy's it. So basically Elon just wasted his money on something people are probably not gonna use in the future.
I think Elon buying twitter isn't gonna do anything to this world. I think he just wants to spend money to get more money tho not many people use twitter anymore
In my opinion, it is the epitome of a person with too much power and money. Twitter doesn't really have any promises for the future, so I think that Musk buying most of twitter, was just to show his extreme wealth. However, It isn't really our business to judge, as it is his money. On the other hand, if Musk continues buying these platforms, such as twitter that are used for information by 65 million, it can suggest the fundamentals of a monopoly.
I think the only reason Elon Musk bought Twitter was to strengthen his reach through the app. For example, we can see that Elon Musk's tweets, even ones that are meant to be jokes, can impact the stock market and even the bitcoin industry. On March 14, Elon made a joke tweet about Dogecoin, which raised the price of 1 coin by 14%. We can see that Elon can be highly influential through the app, so he wanted to buy it to have a guaranteed way of influence.
Twitter doesn't impact me but I feel that Elon Musk buying Twitter may be a bad thing for Twitter users. If Elon follows through with his free speech plan, twitter will be a more harmful and unsafe environment. Complete free speech could be a bad thing on social media and it can cause racist and other bad people to start using twitter and saying harmful things on the app.
Elon Musk buying twitter doesn't impact me but him making it so people can post what they want is going to do more harm then good.
In my opinion Elon Musk buying twitter is irrelevant to me because i don't use twitter. I believe that he worked hard to earn that much money where he can basically buy anything he wants. He may not change twitter for the better, or help him personally but buying twitter to him is sort of like a new toy in a way. Sometimes i want to be like Elon Musk and how rich he is that would solve 98 of my 99 problems.
Elon Musk buying twitter doesn't impact me because I don't use twitter and don't think i would use it anytime soon. But if there is free speech on the app, without guild lines and any type of control, i feel like the app will get out of control and at some point even dangerous for people to use it.
I don't really have an opinion on this topic because personally it's irrelevant and I don't really use twitter. But I just hope that he doesn't do any harm because some people really like twitter.
I personally have no opinion on Elon Musks purchase of twitter, but I think that it shows the amount of wealth he has and what he can achieve with it.
I don't use twitter so I don't have much of an opinion and I don't feel that it's my place to judge. I don't think twitter or Elon will benefit from this.
I don't even have twitter but i think he should've spent that money on something else. also, twitter is already a questionable platform and a very rich billionaire buying it won't improve it at all
in my opinion, if he has the money, he can do whatever he wants with it but i don't think it will improve twitter.
I personally don't have a care for this topic since I don't even use twitter, however I think that a millionaire like Elon Musk should've used the large amount of money has on things that actually needs awareness and attention.
I don't use twitter and twitter does not affect me. I don't care about him. Also, he can buy anything he wants and it is his money.
i think that this dumb because why is the inventor of the Tesla, a car inventor, wants to buy a huge internet company and out of know were they give it for $44 billion dollars as if they were just waiting for someone to ask to take it from them.
I don't really care about twitter....and he can use his money to buy what he wants since he's rich
to be honest i dont really care about Elon Musk buys twitter speaking that i dont really use the app. i dont really know why hes buying twitter but if hes buying it just to make more money there is no point.
Elon musk buying twitter shows that rich people can do almost anything they want. Although I dont use twitter I think he should donate the money instead of buying major companies.
In my opinion. Elon buyin twitter doesn't really matter since Elon wouldn't change any features about twitter other than adding more brain dead people.
i don't really care because i don't even use twitter for anything. he's just wasting money because why would you need twitter just to make it private.......................
Elon Musk buying Twitter doesn’t really effect me because I don’t use Twitter and I don’t see myself using it. I thought him buying Twitter just means he gets the profit from Twitter but after I found out it was to make it private, I suddenly feel against it because Twitter is one of the most known social media platforms and suddenly having it gone just didn’t feel right.
Elon Musk buying Twitter really won’t make a difference if I’m being honest. He’s basically stating how when he gets control of the app he would make everything private. I don’t think he should be spending such a large sum or money and should use it for something more useful like charities.
I don't think Elon Musk buying twitter will make a difference and in my opinion he's just wasting his money.
While it is somewhat concerning that a single person can just outright buy a major company, Twitter has lost a non-negligible amount of it's reputation due to anti-vaxxers, and "smooth brained" individuals. The fact is that it is still one of the biggest social media platforms, I feel that Elon's ownership can go extremely poorly or change Twitter for the better. Either way, it is a huge flag to the influence of the extremely wealthy and the future that holds for the world. I'm still not gonna use twitter though.
Elon Musk buying twitter won't affect me in anyways because I never use twitter. Since I never use twitter, for him to buy it has nothing to do with me.
I don’t use twitter so to me, it doesn’t really matter or affect anything. Also, he wouldn’t change anything or do anything drastic since there might be major backlash so overall, in my opinion, it doesn’t matter.
I don’t really have an opinion on this but it’s kind of random that Elon Musk just wants to buy a whole social media platform like do rich people just buy whatever they want just because they can or something ?
I don't have anything against it and I only use Twitter only once or twice in a while so it doesn't affect me. It's pointless because he is just wasting his money. With $44 billion dollars he can buy other things that are more useful not some app that most people probably don't use nowadays.
I don’t have much of an opinion on Elon Musk buying Twitter since I am not a Twitter user. I think him buying Twitter might improve some random features since he is smart and has the money to do what he wants.
I really don't see a point in buying Twitter for an outrageous price such as $44 billion. I don't know what his plan is. Or even if he was trying to make money but I doubt it because $44 billion is a lot. There may potentially be a reason other than money but either way, it doesn't affect me in any way.
No opinion, I don't use twitter.
I don't see why elon is buying twitter for 44$ billion.
I kind of don't care that much about Elon Musk purchasing Twitter. I guess if he has the money then he can do it. I don't think he should purchase it just to let people say hateful and racist things though.
