Tesla CEO Elon Musk suggested that a new platform is needed to compete with Twitter amid the social media website’s recent suspensions of users for tweeting out their opinions.

“Is a new platform needed?” Musk asked his 79.1 million followers. His tweet was subsequently liked over 100,000 times and shared over 9,000 times within two hours of him posting it.

Musk’s suggestion comes after he conducted an informal poll asking if users believed Twitter facilitated free speech. Seventy percent of the 1.2 million users who responded said it did not.
The billionaire previously asked his audience if Twitter’s algorithm should be open-sourced, and more than 82% of respondents agreed that it should. Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey even agreed.
When a user suggested Musk use some of his alleged worth of $244 billion to buy out the platform, Musk responded, “Haha that would be sickkk.”

Next, right-wing commentator Mike Cernovich replied to Musk’s tweet to point out the platform’s hypocrisy.

“If you’re a leftist making death threats against conservatives. or organizing riots, Twitter respects your freedom of speech,” Cernovich wrote. “Twitter also respects the freedom of speech for media hoaxes like when every major outlet framed an innocent Covington high school kid.”

“Doesn’t sound very balanced,” Musk replied.

Should he follow through, Musk’s new platform would become the likes of Parler and GETTR, platforms that began since Donald Trump’s presidency with a similar mindset of providing a social media platform without censorship.
