Hateful Tweets To Be Maxed Out And Demonetized: ‘Chief Tweet’ Elon Musk On New Twitter Policy
November 20, 2022: In the latest policy update for his latest acquisition Twitter, billionaire Elon Musk said hate tweets will be adjusted and demonetized.
“The new Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of access. You won’t find a tweet unless you specifically look for it, no different from the rest of the Internet,” Musk said.
New Twitter boss Elon Musk announced his plans for content moderation on the microblogging site late Friday.
This comes just a day after Twitter’s offices were closed to employees and employees walked off the job en masse.
Musk said Twitter’s new policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of access. Hundreds of Twitter employees resigned on Thursday after Twitter’s new boss gave an ultimatum to work “hardcore,”.
The resignations will further reduce Twitter’s workforce, which was cut by about 50 percent in the week after Musk took over.
In the latest policy update for his new acquisition, Musk said hate tweets will be adjusted and demonetized.
“The new Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of access,” added the billionaire owner of the microblogging site.
“Negative/hateful tweets will be maximally debased and demonetized so that no ads or other revenue will be generated on Twitter.
You won’t find a tweet unless you specifically look for it, no different from the rest of the internet,” he shared. He further clarified that this only applies to individual tweets, not the entire account.
Meanwhile, early Saturday morning Musk launched a Twitter poll asking followers to vote on whether to reinstate former US President Donald Trump’s account on the platform.
With 20 hours left for voting now, the poll has around 4.57 million votes, with more than 55 percent of respondents saying yes.
Trump was permanently banned from Twitter in 2021,” due to the risk of inciting further violence”. Musk’s latest poll contradicts what he said on Oct. 28 after completing his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter late last month.
A day after closing the $44 billion deal, Musk announced the creation of the Content Moderation Council.
“There will be no major content decisions or account resets before he convenes the council, the billionaire announced on Twitter,” he said.
