Question: Who is Elon Musk? How do you feel about Elon Musk buying Twitter?

To me Elon Musk is someone who has lots of money and owns Tesla, and he is also very smart. I personally don’t pay attention to Twitter as much, so I don’t really mind it being bought, but if you have the money, why not.

He’s a dude that owns Tesla. I think he’s good with owning businesses and he is talented with electronics. I don’t know what he plans on doing anything to mess up how Twitter is already run; he’d just get more money. There probably won’t be much change in political views or censorship after the purchase.

I don’t know who Elon Musk is other than owning Tesla. I don’t use Twitter so I don’t really care, but Twitter shouldn’t be monetized. So, if there are any political agenda than I wouldn’t support him buying Twitter. Based on the companies he already owns, which are doing really good for the world, so overall I think Elon Musk buying Twitter would be good.

Elon Musk is the smartest man on earth according to a lot of people. He owns a lot of things and I know he wants to go to space. I don’t know what his intentions are with buying Twitter, but he needs to be careful because social media is how the younger generations get news, so him owning and controlling Twitter worries me that he’d push his personal agenda. Hopefully he’s a good man but if not, then that is a scary thing cause a lot of people go to Twitter over the other Social media platforms even the news and rely on that. If he is setting up an agenda for personal media that he puts out, then we would be in a lot of trouble, but he is aware of that and wants to avoid that, then we should be good with no problem.
