Construed to the movement of contributing to the society and free speech, Twitter takeover by @elonmusk will have a major positive impact.
Both from a technical and a humanistic standpoint.

So, Musk's takeover of Twitter is an interesting move. I am not sure what his motivations are; even from his statement on his account, the implications and ramifications are not clear. Free speech is a noble goal but on the internet, technically speaking, it is not really a free.
