Elon Musk, the SpaceX and Tesla Inc. chief executive officer, was asked Thursday by Twitter Inc. CEO Jack Dorsey how he would fix the social network, where Musk has approximately 30.7 million followers.
The conversation was projected on giant screen at twitter employee meeting where Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey asked Mr. Musk “Give us some feedback or critique; what we could be doing better and what is your hope for our potential as a service if you are running twitter, by the way, do you want to run twitter, what would you do?”
“I think it would be great if you could differentiate if you’re getting feedback from a real person or some interest groups that want to manipulate the system.” Musk continued. “What do people actually want, what are people actually upset about versus manipulation of the system by various interest groups.”
Though Elon Musk has faced several criticisms like when he called a British caver pedo guy in 2018 and later the same year tweeted about taking Tesla private and claimed that funding is secured, he has been able to engage Tesla customers by working on many customer service issues. Tesla owners also have been able to suggest new features.
Elon Musk using the same platform he was able to ask his follower to suggest features for the Tesla pickup truck where twitter followers suggested features which most of them made it to the final Tesla Cybertruck which was unveiled November 2019
