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.
Elon Musk has promised less regulation of opinions & speech on Twitter.
