There are fears he may fire about 75 per cent of Twitter employees, documents and interviews by the Washington Post revealed, showing the Tesla CEO’s hostile relationship with Twitter’s criticisms of his content.

The billionaire has mulled changes on the site, including subscriptions, reducing the number of fake and spam accounts on the site, and changing the content algorithm to promote free speech.

Trump and Kanye West may return

According to the SpaceX CEO, he may reinstate and upturn lifetime bans of former President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West. This week, he lost over $2 billion net worth over his antisemitic comments.

Donald Trump was ousted from Twitter in January after his supporters rioted following his inciting tweet asking them to ‘take back America’ after he lost the last election.

Musk had always supported Kanye West and welcomed him back to Twitter earlier this month when the rapper returned to the platform.

Kanye West was banned this month following threats of violence against the Jews.

Musk has beaten the Friday, October 28, 2022, deadline stipulated in the deal, or he would face legal fireworks.

Musk's financial clout exceeds that of investor Warren Buffett, with Tesla's CEO estimated to be three times wealthier than the well-known philanthropist.

Musk's net worth recently increased due to an 8.5% gain in Tesla's shares and a 65.6 percent increase since the beginning of the year.
