Elon Musk and Twitter have reached a $44 billion deal in what would be one of the largest acquisitions in tech history if the deal goes through. And after the world’s richest man enters Twitter, how will this social platform be transformed? American network media Axios proposedfour possibilities :

  1. Add editing function

    • Musk complained about the lack of an edit button on Twitter as early as 2019, and launched a poll on his 85 million-follower account that found nearly three-quarters of voting users agreed with him.

  2. Post longer tweets

    • Twitter has long been known for its 140-character limit (later increased to 280) per tweet, a practice that Musk has previously criticized as “outdated” for long-form tweets.

  3. Fight spam bots with authentication

    • Musk has called malicious bots “the most annoying problem on Twitter” and said that Twitter, which he runs, will “verify all real humans” and open source algorithms to reduce external suspicion.

  4. freedom of speech

    • Musk is dissatisfied with Twitter’s current censorship mechanism. When he announced the acquisition, he tweeted that Twitter is a “digital square” that is noisy and tolerant of dissent, in order to reflect what he sees as “the cornerstone of democratic functioning.” —Freedom of speech — He believes that social platforms should not override the government’s role as an arbiter of speech.

out of gender

“The trick she used to distract him, like Sharon Stone’s scene in The Sixth Sense.” The British “Mail on Sunday” published an article on Sunday, There has been a storm of public opinion in the UK – the “he” referred to in the aforementioned sentence is British Prime Minister Johnson; and the woman accused of deliberately crossing her legs is Angela Rayne, the deputy leader of the opposition Labour Party.

The Mail on Sunday report, citing a “humorous suggestion” by an anonymous Conservative MP, alleging that Rainer used a rocker to interfere with Johnson during a parliamentary question, drew thousands of complaints after it was published, and was criticized by people from all sides. .

Reiner hit back at the “gutter journalism” on Twitter: “As a woman with legs and clothes, I have been accused of a ‘strategy to distract the Prime Minister’…Women in politics face gender every day. Discrimination and misogyny – I am no exception.” Johnson also expressed his regret over the “anonymous misogyny” incident: “Although I disagree with Rainer on almost all political issues, I respect her name MP.”

I can’t just see
