As the owner and director of the social network, Elon Musk can hire, fire, and make as many changes as he wants.
The arrival of Elon Musk as the new owner of Twitter has unleashed a sharp controversy in which users, businessmen, and even the United States government have been involved and has also announced new changes in this social network that many were asking for.
Twitter is one of the most popular social networks, with hundreds of millions of users around the world. As it allows you to share short messages quickly and include images, videos, and links to other internet sites, well used, it is one of the most professional channels for scientific communication. Today, virtually all scientific publications and societies, most research centers, universities, and many researchers use Twitter for their professional work.
With this, through his official Twitter account, Elon Musk announced a new change that more than one would like. The businessman said that more text could be added to the tweets soon.
“Twitter will soon add the ability to attach long-form text to tweets, putting an end to the absurdity of notepad screenshots,” he wrote on Twitter.
In a post thread, Musk wrote: “Followed by creator monetization for all forms of content.”
There are many people who have incorporated social networks into their daily routines as a means of obtaining information. In addition to their immediacy, they have the advantage that, until now, they did not involve any cost, and that makes them the preferred option for many young people.
Elon Musk and his gigantic control in command of Twitter
After a controversial purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk, the deal was finally closed last Friday, October 28. Since then, the owner of Tesla has been the new director of the social network after enforcing a clause to the contrary where it is stipulated that the board of directors would be dissolved after the purchase.
This decision may change, but in the meantime, as owner and CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk can hire, fire, and make any changes he wants to the social network. The dissolution of the board of directors was presented before the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC, for its acronym in English) as one of the points related to the purchase of Twitter.
“As a result of the consummation of the Merger, Mr. Musk became the sole director of Twitter. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, effective as of the effective date of the merger, the following persons, who were directors of Twitter prior to the effective date of the merger, are no longer directors of Twitter: Bret Taylor, Parag Agrawal, Omid Kordestani, David Rosenblatt, Martha Lane Fox, Patrick Pichette, Egon Durban, Fei-Fei Li and Mimi Alemayehou,” the letter detailed.
