Twitter News Desk !!! Microsoft founder and billionaire Bill Gates has said Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk have had a good track record commercially, but he could make Twitter a worse platform. According to a CNN report, Gates questioned Musk’s $44 billion acquisition deal on Twitter, saying that Musk could actually make it worse. Gates made the remarks while speaking at the Wall Street Journal CEO Summit. Although what he meant by worse, he did not define it precisely. He raised the question whether Musk is committed to preventing the rapid spread of public health misinformation and vaccine skepticism on social media. Let us tell you that during the acquisition of Twitter, Elon Musk said that this platform is a public platform for people to express their views openly. He considers the blocking of content in the name of objectionable content on Twitter as an obstacle to free speech. They have stated on several occasions that they want to do away with censorship and promote a free speech and with that purpose they have acquired the platform. On this, Gates raised the question and said that the free speech argument that Musk is arguing behind buying the social media platform is justified? Gates said that during the Corona period, Musk shared false information on Twitter many times and it would not be right if Musk allows anyone to say anything in the name of free speech.
Not only this, Musk had also raised questions about the vaccine several times during the Corona period, which Gates has considered wrong. On Musk’s alleged confusing post about the vaccine, Gates said, “Is this one of the things he thinks should be spread?” Gates also said that he did not expect to replicate the mind-blowing performances of Musk’s Tesla and SpaceX with Twitter. That is, Gates clearly believes that Musk will not be able to continue the same success with Twitter, as has been successful in his electric car company Tesla and SpaceX, which makes special rockets in space missions. The report said that Gates’ relationship with Musk has received particular public attention in recent weeks, as Musk recently tweeted a photo of Gates and made fun of him. Not only this, Musk also accused him of reducing Tesla’s stock.
On Wednesday, Gates said Musk’s tweet doesn’t bother me. Furthermore, he declined to say that he placed a bet against Tesla. “It’s possible that the stock went down and whoever shorted the stock made money, I don’t know,” Gates said.
