Inside Story

What will Elon Musk do with Twitter?

The world’s richest man has taken charge of one of the largest social media platforms.

After months of uncertainty and a long legal battle, the world’s wealthiest person has taken charge of one of the most influential social media platforms.

But it is not yet clear what Elon Musk intends to do with Twitter.

There has already been a staffing shake-up, with Musk firing at least four top executives.

And there are speculations that he could reinstate banned Twitter accounts.

Many right-wing political figures see his takeover as a win for free speech, while others are concerned it may give rise to more hate speech on Twitter.

So, what is next for Twitter?
