Elon Musk’s ‘top priority’ for Twitter includes cutting down on crypto scam tweets

With a reported net worth of more than $300 billion, Tesla (NASDAQ:) and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said he could “technically afford” to purchase Twitter (NYSE:) outright and also had plans to change the user experience of the major social media platform.

In a TED Talk held at a TED conference in Vancouver on Thursday, Musk told curator Chris Anderson that if his offer to buy Twitter were successful, he would consider changing the way the platform handles controversial content by not promoting certain tweets and adding the ability to edit tweets as well as show that edit history. The Tesla CEO added that under his prospective leadership, Twitter should be “reluctant to delete things” and permanently ban accounts, but he would endeavor to encourage free speech according to respective countries’ laws.
