Elon Musk hasn’t been so subtle about his opinions on some of the drawbacks when it comes to Twitter. Some are minor, but some are a bit more fundamental. For example, last week, he questioned his followers if they believed the platform allowed for free speech and suggested that he may build his own social media.
Instead of doing that, though, he just became the tech platform’s biggest shareholder. Since then, he has wasted no time asking the masses what feature changes they want for Twitter. Most recently, it was polling his 80 million followers about whether they would want to edit their tweets after posting them.
His outspokenness has impressed Twitter’s CEO Parag Agrawal so much that Musk has been invited to the boardroom.
“Do you want an edit button?” tweeted Musk. Twitter’s new CEO, Parag Agrawal, retweeted Musk’s poll and wrote, “The consequences of this poll will be important. Please vote carefully.”
“He’s both a passionate believer and intense critic of the service which is exactly what we need on @Twitter, and in the boardroom, to make us stronger in the long-term,” Agrawal tweeted.
