His comments don’t end there. Shortly after Twitter and Musk announced the acquisition of the social media platform, the Mahindra Group Chairman conducted on the platform asking users if they supported Musk’s promise of “less regulation of opinions & speech on Twitter.” Close to 81 percent Twitter users responded in affirmation while just 19 percent of Mahindra’s followers expressed their opposition.
In subsequent tweets, he expressed his faith in Twitter being used as a platform to promote free speech. He also said that there was a need to have platforms that could be used for filtering out fake news from social media. ”
Clearly Freedom of Speech is cherished. I,too,agree Twitter can permit a greater degree of participation & expression. Because censorship doesn’t suppress the hate-mongers & a platform like this can flush them out into public view allowing law enforcers to act against them,” he wrote in a tweet.
However, society urgently needs more agencies & platforms that are dedicated exclusively to calling out fake news, fake posts & displaying fact based information on a real time basis. (2/2)
