A Twitter user asked Musk if he would “consider building a social media platform consisting of an open source algorithm and one that would prioritize free speech, and where propaganda was minimal.” To which he replied, “Am giving serious thought to this.” Also Read – Tesla is planning an invite-only mega party with 15,000 people

This development comes just after Musk ran a Twitter poll asking users if they believed Twitter adheres to the principle of free speech. He wrote, “The consequences of this poll will be important. Please vote carefully.” The overall ballet was revealed as 70 percent of people voted “no”.

If Musk decides to develop a new social media platform, he will be joining a list of other people and companies trying to do the same, positioning themselves to allow free speech. They tend to take on the mainstream platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and more. However, to date, none of the new competitors has managed to gain as much traction, and instead have simply just carved out their own small niche and continue to operate with a small chunk of users.

As we can see in Musk’s tweets, he isn’t 100 percent convinced, but it seems as if his Twitter followers are nudging him in the direction of creating a separate social media outlet. We expect more details on this to follow in the coming days.
