Elon Musk, the new Twitter owner and CEO, knows how to provoke. While the old Twitter management focused primarily on moderating tweets and topics, Musk continues to introduce provocative topics and put critical questions to the vote. Most recently, he asked whether Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, prosecuted by U.S. authorities, should be pardoned. Of the more than 3.3 million participants, more than 80% voted for pardon. An impressive poll, a great development.
Edward Snowden is an American and naturalized Russian. He leaked highly classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013, when he was an employee and subcontractor, revealing numerous global surveillance programs run by U.S. agencies with the cooperation of telecommunication companies and European governments. Snowden (@Snowden) is an active Twitter member with more than 5.5 million followers.
The people’s voice is unmistakable: pardon Snowden and Assange. The comments on Twitter are primarily favorable. Most recently, Musk had a vote on whether the blocked Twitter account of former U.S. President Donald Trump should be unlocked again. There, too, the vote went in favor of unlocking it, and indeed Twitter did unlock it. For this, he has reaped much criticism on Twitter and in the mainstream media (MSM).
We think Twitter under Musk is on the right road and is getting involved in really important issues as a platform.
