What will Elon Musk do with Twitter once the deal goes through?

Make the algorithm public: The algorithm decides what content is shown to users. Many have criticized recent social media algorithms for political bias, so Musk wants to make the algorithm public for transparency.

Rewrite the rules for free speech: Over the past couple of years, Twitter’s terms and conditions have grown to allow the platform to censor content as it wishes. In some cases, Twitter has changed the rules after censoring specific content to enable it in the future. Musk, who sees himself as a free speech absolutist, will change the content moderation policies to follow the constitution’s understanding of free speech. Former President Trump will presumably see his account reinstated.

Jack Dorsey, the former Twitter CEO, tweeted on Monday that “Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness.”

Housekeeping: Twitter has a bot problem—fake accounts programmed to tweet about specific topics to influence the conversation. Musk wants this fixed. He also wants to rework the monetization model to reduce reliance on advertisements.

Why is the FBI being sued for $130 million?

Background: Hundreds of women sexually abused by former US national gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar received $380 million after settling. Now, 13 Nassar victims are seeking $130 million from the FBI.

What the FBI did: The victims claim that the FBI bungled the investigation and led to more abuse by the sports doctor. According to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the FBI made fundamental errors when they became aware of allegations against Nassar. The FBI knew about the abuse and let it continue for 17 months.

“No one should have been assaulted after the summer of 2015 because the FBI should have done its job,” said Grace French, founder of The Army of Survivors. “To know that the FBI could have helped to avoid this trauma disgusts me.”

FBI Incompetence: The FBI has received criticism for being incompetent and politically charged. It became clear that the NYC subway shooter was previously on the FBI’s list. Their role in plotting the Whitmer kidnapping also points to entrapment.
