- Twitter will not give Tesla CEO Elon Musk special treatment now that he has been elected to the company’s board of directors.
- Because of this, Twitter may be able to suspend or ban Musk in the future.
- Even though board members cannot influence policy decisions on Twitter, Zamora claims that they do play an important role in providing advice and opinion on the platform.
- There is little doubt that Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be able to influence some of Twitter’s most significant features.
- Following Musk’s purchase of a 9.2% stake in Twitter earlier this week, CEO Parag Agrawal announced that Musk would serve on Twitter’s board as a Class II director until 2024.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk will not get any preferential treatment from Twitter now that he has been elected to the board of directors of the electric car maker. A Twitter spokeswoman stated that the network is “dedicated to fairness in the formulation and enforcement of its laws and standards,” meaning that Musk would be subject to the same restrictions as everyone else. As a result, Twitter may still have the ability to suspend or ban Musk.
According to Zamora, board members aren’t allowed to make choices on Twitter’s policy, but they do play a significant role in offering advice and input.
By contrast, “our policy choices are not set by the board or stockholders,” Zamora said. Throughout our whole service, our board serves as a key advisory and feedback group. Twitter’s management and workers are in charge of running the company on a daily basis.
Of course, Musk will be able to influence some of Twitter’s most important features. The board of directors is responsible for approving mergers and keeping an eye on the company’s performance. Even though this isn’t “day-to-day” decision-making, it may have a significant impact on the firm.
CEO Parag Agrawal stated Musk will serve as a Class II director on Twitter’s board until 2024 after Musk’s acquisition of a 9.2% interest in Twitter this week. People are asking what kind of influence Musk will have on future Twitter choices now that he is the company’s biggest individual shareholder. This is particularly true given Musk’s past criticisms of the site.
To test if Twitter’s users believed the social media platform “rigorously adhered” to the idea of free expression, he conducted a survey in March. On Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk surveyed his Twitter followers to see whether they thought Twitter should feature an “edit” option.
