Following his massive foray into Twitter, tech billionaire Elon Musk is raising an age-old demand from many users: the ability to change tweets later. Users can comment on whether they want an edit button in a Twitter poll set up by Musk. After the initial few hours, around 75 per cent approval was received yesterday.
The non-representative survey has no direct results, but the 9.2 percent participation it just achieved ensures Musk a better hearing with Twitter management. Twitter never responded to years’ demands for an editing option.
Currently no active influencers on Twitter
The head of electric car maker Tesla has so far kept a low profile about what he wants to achieve by joining the short messaging service. The fact that the stake was reported to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a “13G” also means that Musk has no say in Twitter’s business policy or his seat on the board of directors, at least. Not seeking active influence. there is time.
For such cases, he should have filled the more detailed Form “13D”. Still, Twitter shares jumped a good 27 percent yesterday.
Spike against Moscow
Twitter boss Parag Agarwal allowed himself a subtle tactic against his new largest shareholder. Agarwal retweeted Musk’s poll, saying, “The impact of this poll will be significant. Please vote carefully.”
With this sentence, Musk asked Twitter users a few days ago for their opinion on freedom of speech on the service before announcing his entry.
