“There are still some unresolved issues,” Elon Musk said during a video conference in Doha, Qatar, where he did not want to elaborate on the “sensitive” aspect of Twitter’s takeover.

According to him, the social network estimates that less than 5% of daily active users have fake accounts and spam, which the founder questions.

“We are still waiting for a solution to this very important issue,” Tesla and the SpaceX owner hit it off with a hammer, but Twitter finally agreed to provide him with the necessary information on the matter in early June.

He added that Twitter debt and voting in favor of shareholders were also issues that needed to be addressed.

Elon Musk 80% of the North American population and half of the world wants to join the social network and recognize that it should not be “a place where people are uncomfortable or harassed”.

This is where his concept of freedom of expression and “different from free access” into content comes into play.

“Twitter’s policy should allow people to say what they want within the confines of the law and limit who sees what based on user preferences,” he said.

If his takeover project is successful, Elon Musk will “want to lead the product” on Twitter, as he did at Tesla and SpaceX, without necessarily being the CEO.

Multi-billionaire Tesla also clarified figures published in the media in early June on the potential reduction in the workforce, announcing a reduction of about 3.5% before the number of employees begins to rise again in the next three months. One year.

The founder says he has not decided who to support for the 2024 US presidential election, but plans to invest between $ 20 million and $ 25 million in the campaign of his chosen candidate.

Elon Musk has previously said he favors Ron Dissantis, the ultra-conservative Republican governor of Florida.
