This week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased Twitter for $44-billion and has plans to take the company private. With Musk now owning one of the more influential platforms, many are becoming aware of the entrepreneur if they hadn’t known about him already.

As a result, Fox News is attempting to inform those who might not know who Musk is as they’ll be running a special “Who Is Elon Musk?” on their streaming platform on one of the richest men on the planet. 

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade will host the special, which airs on Thursday, April 28th, and includes interviews with FOX Business’ Stuart Varney and Liz Claman, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, and Heritage Foundation Fellow Kara Frederick.

“The special will explore the life of Elon Musk – from building electric cars and spaceships, buying Twitter, and dating Amber Heard, the richest man in the world always makes news,” the press release said, which was obtained by Barrett Media

Upon purchasing the company, Musk wants the platform to be better than ever, both on the free speech aspect and improving certain features. 

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a statement

“I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spambots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential — I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

One of the dominant topics around news media is the future of Twitter after the latest mass exodus of staffers, considering how many consume their news, which is why CNN’s Chris Wallace talked with some who knows Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Kara Swisher.

Swisher was a guest on Wallace’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” on HBO Max and CNN, where the two discuss the state of Elon Musk since acquiring Twitter a couple of weeks ago.

“Right now, the way he’s behaving around Twitter, I’m not sure what’s going on,” Swisher said. “It feels careless in a way that I don’t think he’s been like. In this case, his ID has completely taken over. And it’s it’s out of control and nobody’s controlling it.”

Additionally, Swisher gave her opinion on how she sees the saga at Twitter ending and whether or not it can succeed under Musk.

“He’s got a lot of debt,” Swisher added. “That’s, that’s the issue, even though he’s the world’s richest man for now. Because Tesla’s stock where he gets most of his wealth is down rather considerably. He’s, he’s gonna have to build a business. He’s sort of insulting advertisers doesn’t seem to be — wouldn’t be what I would do.

“Given 96% of their business is advertising but he attacked them as woke which was ridiculous. He’s alienating his big users like myself and active users. We had some amazing stuff going on with Twitter spaces. And every advertiser left us because they didn’t want to be part of this. They didn’t feel safe on the platform. It was a great deal we were working on with Twitter.”

After Twitter saw another mass exodus of employees on Thursday, new owner Elon Musk revealed on Friday the social media platform has a new policy regarding free speech.

“New Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach,” Musk tweeted

“Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter. You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of Internet.”

As a result, some Twitter accounts will be restored, but that doesn’t mean there is no freedom of consequence for those who violate these new rules set by Musk.

“Kathy Griffin, Jordan Peterson & Babylon Bee have been reinstated,” Musk added. “Trump decision has not yet been made. Note, this applies just to the individual tweet, not the whole account.”
