The Tesla boss responded to a user who asked him if a new platform was necessary, explaining that he was “seriously thinking” about doing it. For some time, the billionaire has not spared his remarks with regard to the social network. Very critical, last week, he lamented that Twitter “does not respect the principles of freedom of expression” and “undermines freedom of expression”. “Is a new platform needed?” he tweeted. Elon Musk has 79 million subscribers, reports Les Echos, and often creates controversy with his tweets.
