Elon Musk Twitter takeover ‘good for everyone’: Tech expert
Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Jessica Melugin says Musk’s free-speech policy is a net benefit for social media users.
Companies and government accounts on Twitter may have to pay a slight fee to stay on the social media platform in the future, but the service will always be free for "casual users," Tesla CEO Elon Musk, whose $44 billion bid for Twitter was accepted last week, tweeted on Tuesday evening.
The tweet was in reply to a cryptic message he sent earlier in the day that said "the downfall of the Freemasons was giving away their stonecutting services for nothing."
Musk pitched a variety of ideas to banks last week to get help with his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter, including monetizing certain viral tweets and cutting salaries for the board, Reuters reported.
