Amid Twitter files controversy, Elon Musk calls company a ‘crime scene’


Since Tesla CEO Elon Musk took over Twitter, not a single day has gone by without the social media company making headlines. After sending shockwaves among social media users with investigative reports called Twitter Files, new Twitter boss Musk has captured all the attention online with his tweets. Wondering what we’re talking about? Well, after parts 3 and 4 of the Twitter files were shared over the weekend, Musk took to his official Twitter account on Sunday and called the platform both “a social media company and a crime scene”. Not only that, but in a series of cryptic tweets, the Tesla CEO also created a stir among users of the microblogging site. The multi-billionaire took to the platform and wrote, “Twitter is both a social media company and a crime scene.”

This controversial tweet was followed by Musk sharing a meme minutes later to his first tweet. The meme was split into two halves. The first half featured a tombstone with the words “Twitter’s Darkest Secrets” written on it. The second half showed a man standing with a shovel in his hands with “Elon” written on it. The man can look down, as it rains and rumbles behind him.

In no time, Musk’s tweets went viral. Several users took to the comments section to congratulate the billionaire. One user commented, “Tis show season. Expose them all. Please.”

Many users claimed they were looking for more transparency and wrote: “Looking forward to more transparency sir”

But some were not convinced.

Now, if you’re wondering, the Twitter files, which left netizens stunned, gave people a glimpse into the deepest and darkest world of social media content moderation. The controversial documents further revealed that teams of Twitter employees created backlists, prevented disfavoured tweets from going viral or trending, and actively limited the visibility of entire accounts or even trending topics. This was done in secret, without informing users. It should be noted that last week, freelance journalist Matt Taibbi, in collaboration with Musk, published these Twitter Files.
