The new Twitter policy is freedom of speech and not freedom of reach, wrote Musk in a tweet, adding that, hate speech and other negative content i tweets will no longer be promoted by Twitter and demonetised.

The new Twitter policy allows for free speech, but not for free reach, he added.

Hateful or negative tweets will be max deboosted and demonetised, meaning Twitter won’t get any ads or other income from them. Like the rest of the Internet, you won’t find the tweet unless you specifically look for it, Musk tweeted.

Also, Musk announced that Twitter will bring back a number of contentious accounts that had been previously suspended or banned, including the account of former President Donald Trump.

Trump had faced legal issues earlier in 2020 because his account was terminated following the Capitol Hill uprising on January 6 after the US Presidential elections.

Musk, the world’s richest man has made many decisions in this regard, including the one to purchase Twitter, therefore the introduction of this new policy is not shocking.

Twitter had broken the terms of their mutual purchase agreement, the Tesla CEO said that by exaggerating the quantity of spam and false bot accounts on its network.

The US market had a dramatic fall following Musk’s news of the agreement termination. Later, Musk was sued by Twitter, on the allegations Musk using bots as a cover to back out of a transaction. And most recently, Musk acquired Twitter at the initially agreed-upon price of USD 54.20 per share.
