Musk buys Twitter: What's changing?

Elon Musk has struck a deal to buy Twitter with a promise to reduce censorship on the platform, raising questions about what his approach will mean for the "Digital town square".

"Twitter is still a better choice for him to have a voice, if Twitter is willing to restore his account," Mr Kuo said.
