The new Chief Twit, Elon Musk, began his Halloween weekend by putting customer service to Twitter.
After acquiring the social media platform, he got to work addressing things from election censorship to investigating accounts being wrongfully accused of violating Twitter’s rules, according to Teslarati.
Musk is known to listen to feedback from his customers. The Tesla Cybertruck can be an excellent example of this.
And so is allowing Tesla customers and shareholders to decide on the locations of Supercharging stations. He has listed to his fans and critics, either addressing undue criticism head-on or implementing ideas.
It is no surprise that Musk is doing the same thing for Twitter.
“Anyone suspended for minor & dubious reasons will be freed from Twitter jail,” he tweeted in response to Jordan Peterson’s daughter Mikhailia Peterson, who asked if he could bring her father back to the platform.
Musk looks into Twitter’s policy
Massimo, @Rainmaker1973, a famous account that tweets about astronomy, astronautics, and engineering, shared that he hoped his account was not suspended since it had been blocked for 12 hours after tweeting about universe expansion.
The post was marked as violating Twitter’s rules. The violation was for “nonconsensual nudity.” Elon Musk apologized to Massimo and stated he was fixing the issue as quickly as possible.
In addition, Musk and Twitter took action when a burst of racial slurs happened over the weekend.
And in response to a tweet by LeBron James, Musk shared a thread written by Twitter’s Head of Safety & Integrity, Yoel Roth, who stated Twitter has “taken action to ban the users involved in this trolling campaign.”
He also pledged that Twitter would continuously work to deal with this in the coming days.
Twitter to increase video’s length
Furthermore, in response to a Twitter user, Kerri Gray, Elon Musk guaranteed that there would be an increase to the videos’ allowed length so users could post longer videos.
“I will look into this. Twitter should be even-handed, favoring neither side,” he said. Chief Twit vowed to look into reports of election misinformation policing.
Game modes in the social media app
When Cosmin Dzsurdzsa, Senior Researcher for True North Centre, recommended making Twitter have game modes and pitched his idea, Musk agreed that it made sense.
These are just some of the things the Chief Twit has done since taking on the role and the platform’s ownership.
