Elon Musk, a billionaire, has recently acquired control of the social media platform Twitter and has become its CEO, where he has drawn much criticism for his controversial approach. Many journalists rely on the site for breaking news and breaking stories. This is why the media was so ready to condemn his decision to lay off half of Twitter’s workforce during his first two weeks as CEO. This, he claims, is just how things are supposed to be.
“You don’t get to where I am as an entrepreneur by thinking small,” Musk told The Beet. “My number one rule for the companies I run is to be explosive.” Musk, CEO of electric car manufacturer Tesla and rocket manufacturer SpaceX, has emphasized the value of having firms that unexpectedly take off.
“I have nothing against those who want to play it safe in life or in business,” Musk continued. “But I set my sights on creating products that bring unexpected excitement… a sense of unpredictable possibility, or if you will, a spontaneous combustion that you can’t get anywhere else.” So it seems his decision to “blow apart” Twitter is not a departure from his core business approach, though he did admit that it required some flexibility on his part.
Musk said, “Twitter doesn’t make cars or space rockets”. For Twitter to be as successful as my other ventures, it required some engineering and original thinking on my part. I started almost from scratch to reimagine what it means for a website to explode, and I have to say that I am rather pleased with the outcome so far. You can’t just go crashing through a ceiling or tearing down a wall without starting a fire, as the old adage goes.
This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.

Musk further explained that he views the purchase of Twitter as a bold move toward revolutionizing the technology industry. “No other car company, for instance, is as committed as Tesla at making products that catch on fire,” Musk said. “The problem with the Metaverse, as much as I believe in the virtual future, is that it’s not a product that ignites. Those headsets — I just don’t see it as a product that will melt users’ brains.”
But that wasn’t the end of Musk’s criticism of the other titans of tech. “Twitter is not yet Facebook, but I’d like to think I’m inspiring my new competitor [Mark Zuckerberg] to bring some explosiveness to his leadership style. I’d even enjoy seeing Bezos make Amazon go up in flames — the company that is… well actually both,” Musk concluded.

According to him, this is how things are supposed to be.
