- Twitter cofounder Biz Stone said Elon Musk reversed positive changes on the positioning, per The Guardian.
- Stone said within the interview that Musk doesn’t strike him as the proper person to own Twitter.
- The long run of Twitter currently “doesn’t look good,” Stone added.
Elon Musk has reversed among the positive changes that were made to Twitter before the acquisition, in line with Biz Stone, the platform’s cofounder.
In an interview with The Guardian, Stone said he made advancements in morale and supervising content on Twitter after he rejoined the corporate in 2017.
“We made a whole lot of improvements in those areas. And that is all gone now,” he told The Guardian.
Musk “doesn’t seem to be” the proper person to own Twitter “but I might be fallacious,” he said.
Stone told The Guardian it was “really bad” that Twitter employees were named within the “Twitter Files,” which related to how the corporate handled content moderation and the suspension of former President Donald Trump’s account. The naming of employees can result in “a whole lot of harassment,” Stone added.
CNN reported that Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of trust and safety, was forced to flee his home in December due to increasingly violent threats towards him. The threats got here after Musk “appeared to endorse a tweet that baselessly accused Roth of being sympathetic to pedophilia,” CNN reported.
Stone, who established Twitter with Jack Dorsey and other cofounders in 2006, said in The Guardian interview “it is often tough” and “not likely a win-win situation” whenever you’re answerable for a social-media company. Half of the users were glad with you, while the opposite half were indignant at you, he added.
Stone said he wasn’t sure whether Twitter was going to last perpetually. Twitter is experiencing financial difficulties, but Stone told The Guardian he thought the concept of the platform would survive. He added that “without delay” things didn’t look good, nevertheless.
Twitter and representatives for Stone didn’t immediately reply to Insider’s request for comment made outside of normal US operating hours.
