The new CEO also said that he plans to stop the incessant bans on the users, says he does not believe in such prohibitions. He revealed that banned users like former U.S. president, Donald Trump, may be allowed to return to the app.  Explaining his reason for the take over and highlighting his vision for the company, Elon Musk made a post on his Twitter page that reads: “The reason I acquired Twitter is that it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence. There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right-wing and far left-wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.”

Low relevancy ads are spam, but highly relevant ads are actually content. “Fundamentally, Twitter aspires to be the most respected advertising platform in the world that strengthens your brand and grows your enterprise. To everyone who has partnered with us, I thank you.

“Let us build something extraordinary together. That is why I bought Twitter. I didn’t do it because it would be easy. I didn’t do it to make more money.
