Twitter’s flaws are shown by Elon Musk’s meeting with Ron DeSantis

Elon Musk’s event with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis exposed Twitter’s weaknesses in terms of moderating inaccurate and potentially dangerous information. As news of the event spread, many people called out the platform on why they allowed Musk to Tweet false accusations about the state’s efforts to handle the coronavirus pandemic without facing any punishment. While Twitter has put in place rules prohibiting misinformation, it seems that there is still work to be done in the moderation process. It’s also a reminder of the power that individuals like Musk hold over the platform—even when their claims are false and potentially dangerous. This serves as an important lesson over placing too much control in the hands of a few powerful individuals and a call to prioritize accuracy and accountability.
