Twitter leader comments on the inclusion of the Edit button in Elon Musk’s poll: Vote carefully

Twitter chairman Barack Agarwal has commented on the addition of the Edit button on Twitter in a poll by billionaire Elon Musk, chairman of Tesla and SpaceX.

“The results of this poll will be important … please vote carefully,” Barack Agarwal posted on his official Twitter account.

On Monday, Elon Musk bought a 9.2% stake in the social networking site “Twitter”. Musk currently owns more than 73.4 million Twitter shares, valued at $ 2.9 billion, based on Twitter’s closing price on Friday.

According to Reuters, Twitter shares rose 26% in early trading after the revelation, following Musk’s tweet that he was “seriously considering” creating a new social networking site.

Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, launched his first tweet after the deal, with more than 80 million followers on Tuesday morning, asking if he would like the Edit button, referring to the progress of the most popular site users in communications. The sites have been in demand for a long time, i.e., the possibility of modifying the tweet after its publication may be due to a typographical error or doubt about its content.

He also posted a poll on his account.

Last month (March 2022) Musk posted a poll on Twitter asking if the site allows users to speak freely. At the time, he wrote: “Active democracy requires freedom of expression. (Twitter) Do you think this policy is strongly adhered to?”

More than 70% of respondents felt that there was no commitment to freedom of expression on “Twitter”, which prompted Musk to ask his more than 80 million followers what to do ?!

In addition, he said last month that he was “serious” about launching a new social media site.

It is noteworthy that the “Twitter” site has come under heavy criticism in recent years, as some conservative views are frequently censored in the United States.
