Chief executive of the electric car manufacturer, Tesla, and founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has reached a deal to buy Twitter, stating that he is the right person to release the social media platform's extraordinary potential. He has agreed to buy the social media platform in a £34.6bn ($44bn) deal. Musk is a regular Twitter user with more than 80 million followers. In March, Musk asked his followers whether they thought the social media platform encouraged free speech.
Things to talk about at home:
- Do you think people should be able to say what they like on social media platforms like Twitter, or do you think there should be rules users need to follow?
- How about in general life, do you think people should be able to say whatever they like, whenever they like?
- Share your knowledge of social media. Do you think you will use any in the future?
