Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been a prolific Twitter user but is now looking to build his own social media platform. Ironically, the billionaire took to Twitter to share his thoughts on developing his own social media platform.

A Twitter user asked Musk if he would “consider building a social media platform that includes an open source algorithm and one that will prioritize free speech, and where propaganda was minimal.” To which he replied, “I am seriously considering it”.

The development comes after Musk ran a Twitter poll asking users whether they believe Twitter follows the principle of free speech. He wrote, ‘The results of this poll will be important. Please vote carefully.” The overall ballet was revealed as 70 percent of people voted “no.”

If Musk decides to develop a new social media platform, he will join the list of other people and companies trying to do the same, in a position to allow themselves free speech. They carry over to mainstream platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and more. However, to date, none of the new competitors have managed to gain as much traction, and have instead simply carved out their niche and continued to work with a smaller segment of users.

As we can see in Musk’s tweets, he’s not 100 percent convinced, but it seems like his Twitter followers are pushing him towards creating a separate social media outlet. We hope that more information will come out about this in the coming days.
