Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is highly trusted and broadly inclusive is the right one.” he said, indicating that for those same values ​​he appointed Parag Agarwal as chief executive after his departure in November last year.

Along with this message, the Twitter co-founder shared a Radiohead song titled Everything In Its Right Place which suggests that he is satisfied with this purchase by the also owner of Tesla.

With this, he highlighted what he believes to be the greatest virtue of this social network, assuring that he “loves it”. And he added: “It’s the closest thing we have to a global consciousness.”

On the other hand, he showed his commitment to maintain “the idea and the service” of the social network, assuring that now it is his main concern. “It’s the only thing that matters to me and I will do whatever it takes to protect both of us,” she mused.

“Twitter as a company has always been my only problem and my biggest regret. It has been owned by Wall Street and the advertising model. Taking it back from Wall Street is the right first step,” he said, endorsing Musk’s purchase.

However, Dorsey insisted that he considers that “no one should own or run Twitter”, but that it should be “a public good at the protocol level, not a company”.

“To solve the problem of being a company, Elon is the only solution I trust,” he said in that message thread, and stated that he believes that the now owner of the social network has the “mission to spread the light of awareness”.

Thus, he stressed that he does not doubt the future success of the proposal made by Musk before the acquisition of Twitter to create a platform that respects freedom of expression and is inclusive. “It’s the right path… I believe it with all my heart,” he said.

It should be remembered that earlier this month Elon Musk carried out a series of polls in which he said he wanted to know if the followers considered that the social network adheres “rigorously” to the principle of freedom of expression.

For him, the social network should function as a public square where everyone should have the freedom to express their ideas and positions openly. This is not in line with the various initiatives that it and other social networks have taken to prevent the spread of spam, disinformation and hate speech.

It should be remembered that he criticized the decision of the microblogging social network to prohibit access to the site of former President Donald Trump, after the insurrection that took place in the Capitol, in 2021.

“A lot of people are going to be very unhappy with West Coast high-tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech.”Musk wrote at the time.

He said he thought Twitter should be “very cautious about permanent bans,” adding that he thought wait times were better.

After the sale of the social network, Musk again alluded to the importance of everyone being able to express themselves freely. “Freedom of expression is the foundation of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital public square where issues vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a statement.
