Elon Musk has bought all shares of social network Twitter for $44 billion. The billionaire believes that the social network’s economic model is too reliant on advertising, and he must develop new revenue streams.
The Tesla and SpaceX boss will become the owner of the platform, which has become central to the daily lives of tens of millions of people, and he has pledged to purge Twitter of spam, verify user identities and increase transparency. But observers fear the platform could find itself rife with misinformation and hate speech. The stakes in this action are linked to Nicolas Vanbremersch, president of the Renaissance Numérique think tank.
