Elon Musk asks his Twitter followers if they want an ‘Edit button’ after stock purchase


After buying a major share of Twitter, Elon Musk hinted at how he could use his newfound influence on the social media platform by asking his followers in a tweet if they wanted an edit button.

Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, bought a 9.2% stake in Twitter, becoming the largest shareholder in the microblogging service, according to a securities filing. The mercurial tech entrepreneur’s tweet to his more than 80 million followers could indicate how Musk intends to use his new found power over the business.

“Do you want an edit button? Musk asked in the tweet, offering users a “yes” or “no” answer and a Tuesday deadline to respond.

On Friday, April Fool’s Day, Twitter said on its official account that it was working on an edit button.

This is breaking news and will be updated.
