The platform would also let you see newer versions of a tweet if you could only see the older one.
Elon Musk could face challenges in Asia after buying Twitter
Since Elon Musk bought Twitter, there have been many speculations about how this move could affect politics in the U.S. However, fewer people have considered Asia, which poses an even more significant challenge to the company. While Musk has promised to do away with censorship on the platform, his goal could be difficult as he faces authoritarian governments from the region who impose their regulations on Twitter.
Twitter has always stated that it obeys local regulations. If Musk takes the company private as he would have to choose between respecting local rules and blocking censorship which might go against the authoritarian government, and risk Twitter being shut down in several Asian countries.
Musk responds to a tweet by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Musk’s purchase of Twitter has already caused controversy among many people, including politicians. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was recently thought to be one of them after she tweeted about a billionaire who had a communications platform and had an ego problem enabling the right. While she did not specify who she meant, most people thought she was referring to Musk.
Musk responded by asking Cortez to stop hitting on him. She later confirmed that she had been referring to Mack Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ: FB).
Meanwhile, some Democrats want Musk to testify before Congress on his plans for Twitter. This comes as the Senate seeks to place together regulations on tech companies. The former CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, had already testified before Congress.
