On Monday, Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, agreed to buy Twitter for $44 billion, putting an end to a saga that featured hostile takeover attempts before handing him personal control of one of the world’s most popular social networking sites.

Twitter served as a platform for former US President Donald Trump until the network banned him, and Musk, a self-described “free-speech absolutist,” has claimed that he wants to reform the company’s excessive content management.

“Free speech is the backbone of a healthy democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where critical issues affecting humanity’s future are argued,” Musk said on Twitter.
