Elon Musk Doesn’t Seem to Be Right Owner for Twitter, says Co-Founder


Biz Stone, a Twitter co-founder, and angel investor questioned Elon Musk ability to run a platform like Twitter, claiming that Musk had reversed the changes he had made to the workplace environment.

According to the Guardian, he believes that improvements to morale and content policies at the company have reversed under its new owner.

In an interview with the Guardian, Biz Stone said positive changes he had helped oversee in recent years had been unwound by the Tesla chief executive.

Mr. Stone said that running a social media platform is a tough job and it can never be a win-win situation. “50% of the people are going to be happy, and 50% of the people are going to upset with you,” he added.

“You have to be OK with stuff that you just don’t like or don’t agree with being on there. Otherwise, go buy a magazine or a newspaper where it’s acceptable to have a strong opinion,” he advised.

Talking about Elon Musk capability as an owner, he said that “it doesn’t seem like it right now, but I could be wrong.”

The social media juggernaut Twitter started in 2006 by Biz Stone, Noah Glass, Evan Williams, and Jack Dorsey. Dorsey, the CEO at the moment, called him back to the podium to “lead the company culture with that energy and that feeling.”

Meanwhile, the company said on Friday that Twitter users will able to appeal account suspensions and  evaluated under the social media platform’s new criteria for reinstatement beginning February 1.

Twitter accounts will only suspended under the new criteria, which follow billionaire Elon Musk’s purchase of the company in October, for severe or ongoing and repeat violations of the platform’s policies.

Severe policy violations include, among other things, engaging in illegal content or activity, inciting or threatening violence or harm, and harassing other users.
