In the days before the reversal announcement, Elon posted several tweets about the state of Twitter, noting that most of Twitter’s most-followed accounts do not actively use the platform.
He asked, “Is Twitter dying?” and drew attention to “crypto spam accounts
that twitter constantly shows as ‘real’ people.”
To address the spam issue, he floated an idea for allowing regular people people to get verified on the platform through a $3/month fee, and proposed an option to pay in Doge.
He also posted a poll showing general distrust in legacy media
and wrote “69.420% of statistics are false.”
Users have noted that, at some point over the weekend, he deleted several tweets about Twitter, including a poll to remove the ‘w’ from its name.
In the wake of the Twitter board decision, speculation
has picked up that Elon will buy more Twitter shares. A condition for his joining the board was that he not own more than 15% of the company, an agreement which he no longer has to abide by.
