Musk stated the plans about what changes he is looking forward to in the microblogging website; especially, providing the users a chance to practice free speech. “It is very important for there to be an inclusive arena for free speech. It is just really important that people have both the reality and the perception that they are able to speak freely within the bounds of the law, he added.”

In the TED Talks, Musk said, “one of the things I believe Twitter should do is an open-source algorithm and make changes to people’s tweets – if they are emphasized or de-emphasized, that action should be made apparent. So anyone can see that action has been taken.”

He proposed this change to make the actions transparent; and “there is no sort of behind-the-scenes manipulation, either algorithmically or manually.”
