Elon Musk also wants to have his own social network | Digital Trends Spanish

It is already becoming a custom. Every time a millionaire doesn’t feel comfortable on a social network, he threatens to create his own. It happened to former US President Donald Trump who launched Truth Social after being blocked on several other platforms.

Now, everything indicates that Elon Musk could follow in the footsteps of the former president. Through various posts on Twitter, the owner of SpaceX referred to the possibility of creating a new platform, this after criticizing the social network for allegedly not respecting freedom of expression.

“Since Twitter serves as the de facto public square, failing to adhere to the principles of free speech fundamentally undermines democracy. So what needs to be done?”, Wrote the entrepreneur, while in a second tweet, he asked: “is a new platform necessary?”.

Given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy.

In the replies section of his post, Musk went even more direct, responding to one of his followers that he is considering creating a new social network that respects free speech. This is another element that reminds us of Trump, who before launching Truth promised that the platform would not censor any user.

Elon Musk has been criticizing Twitter for several days. In fact, a few days before the tweet about his own social network, the millionaire did a survey asking his followers if the platform respected freedom of expression. 70 percent of the participants chose the “no” option.
