His comments do not end here. Shortly after Twitter and Musk announced the acquisition of the social media platform, the Mahindra Group chairman asked users on the platform if they supported Musk’s promise of “less regulation of opinion and speech on Twitter”. Close to 81 per cent of Twitter users responded in the affirmative, while only 19 per cent of Mahindra’s followers expressed their opposition.
In subsequent tweets, he expressed his belief in Twitter being used as a platform to promote free speech. He also said that there is a need to create such platforms, which can be used to check fake news from social media. ,
Clearly freedom of expression is nurtured. I also agree that Twitter can allow for greater participation and expression. Because censorship does not suppress hate mongers and a platform like this can bring them out in public, allowing law enforcers to take action against them,” he wrote in a tweet.
