Anand Mahindra asked his Twitter followers whether or not they supported lesser regulation of opinions and speech on Twitter, as promised by Elon Musk.

Industrialist Anand Mahindra on Wednesday said that free speech is being cherished and that Twitter “can permit a greater degree of participation and expression”. This comes a day after world's richest man Elon Musk bought the micro-blogging site for $44 billion.

The Mahindra Group Chairperson added that a platform like Twitter can present hate-mongers “into public view” and will allow law enforcement agencies to act against them.


His comments also came after a poll Mahindra conducted on Twitter asking his followers if they support Elon Musk's stand on free speech on the micro-blogging site. An overwhelming 80.7 per cent had voted in support of the tech billionaire.
