Elon Musk expects to begin human trials of Neuralink brain chip in 6 months (Reuters)
Billionaire Elon Musk published a poll on Twitter overnight (Monday), in which he asked if he should give up the CEOs of the social network. The results showed that out of the 17.5 million votes, 57.5% of respondents would like him to retire, while only 42.5% were against the idea. Do I need to take a step back?" asked
in front of his 122 million followers. "I am committed to the result."
Links. Facebook, Instagram, and other social networks were included in the list of those platforms. However, the Chinese social network Tiktok was not included in the list. After several hours - the tweet was deleted without any explanation.
Much criticism has been leveled at Musk since he first presented his desire to acquire the social network.
After a legal battle, the businessman, who also owns Tesla, obtained control of Twitter in exchange for $44 billion.
Since then, there have been several storms on the network, for example after the account of a young man dedicated to tracking Musk's private jet was blocked.
The move was made, even though about a month ago Musk said that due to his commitment to freedom of speech, he would allow the continued operation of the account.
After Musk took over Twitter, he announced that for the sake of free speech he would ease regulation on the popular social media app.
He even unfreezed the account of former United States President Donald Trump, who was suspended after the break-in on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021.
Other accounts of the young Jack Sweeney in his 20s, which publish information about the flights of other billionaires, including Jeff Bezos , Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates were also blocked.
"Any account that records a person's real-time location will be suspended, because there is a risk to their physical safety," explained Musk.
Sweeney previously claimed that Musk offered him a $5,000 payment to freeze the account.
Sweeney, a student at the University of Central Florida, said it was hypocritical, and that the move shows "that these people can play with the rules however they want, with whom they want."
