Despite being highly critical of Twitter and its policies as of late, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Tuesday he is eager to ‘make significant improvements’ to the platform.

Even though Musk has not specifically mentioned any rule changes he may implement, just two weeks ago the billionaire complained that the platform was ‘failing to adhere to free speech principles’ and ‘fundamentally undermining democracy.’

Musk disclosed Monday that he purchased 9.2 percent of Twitter’s stock on March 14, prompting conservatives to demand the company ‘make Twitter great again.’

Musk has joined Twitter’s board of directors, Twitter announced Tuesday. Shares of the social media platform rose more than 7 percent in premarket trading as the calls for change intensified.

Anger over Twitter’s actions erupted when the platform, together with Facebook, permanently suspended Trump’s account after the Capitol attack on January 6. Trump created Truth Social as a response to his suspension, which resembles the Twitter platform.

Musk has been urged by a number of Trump supporters and Republican lawmakers to reintroduce Trump to the platform, now that Musk may hold considerable influence in the company.

Also, they accused Twitter’s leaders of ‘censorship’ including ‘shadow banning,’ a practice that restricts a user’s reach without their knowledge or appearance of doing so.

‘Twitter used to be an open field of free thought,’ Fox & Friends host Pete Hegseth said on Tuesday, reports Mediaite. ‘Now the blue checkmarks like groupthink leftists police that thought and the corporate types at Twitter have been happy to enforce it.’

He continued: ‘They pushed off Donald Trump. They pushed off a lot of conservatives. If he were to open that up, it opens up the conversation in America.’

‘The Left has determined that speech is violence. That’s their argument on so many of these things. If [Musk] attempted to bring Donald Trump back, which he should, the target is gonna be even bigger on his back.’

Musk’s participation as a shareholder led to calls for Trump’s restoration on Monday.

‘Now that [Elon Musk] is Twitter’s largest shareholder, it’s time to lift the political censorship. Oh… and BRING BACK TRUMP!’ Rep. Lauren Boebert posted.

Republican candidate Errol Webber argues that Twitter should ‘give everyone who has been banned a second chance,’ which includes Trump.

‘@ElonMusk is now the largest shareholder of Twitter. Time to get this platform back to its former glory,’ Webber posted. ‘Step one – bring back President Trump! Step two – give everyone who has been banned a second chance. Step three – end all forms of political and other censorship.’

A former Trump Treasury Department official, Monica Crowley, suggested: ‘He should demand the end of political censorship, company-wide reform, and the reinstatement of President Trump.’

Congressman Jim Banks (R-Ind.) of the Republican Study Committee said, ‘If [Elon Musk] can clean up Twitter and stop online censorship, I’m all for him taking over the whole damn thing.’

‘Will the new majority shareholder return freedom of speech to Twitter?’ Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted. ‘It will require courage [because] the regime is heavily investing in a certain industry and threats will undoubtedly come. Yet the freedom of speech restored will enable us all to defeat them.’

‘Great job Elon Musk! Now reinstate President Trump!’ wrote author Brigitte Gabriel.

Of course, some Dems lost their minds over the news.

Socialist Sawyer Hackett who is a senior adviser for former Obama Secretary of HUD, Julian Castro, posted that Musk paid zero taxes last year.

“The newest member of Twitter’s board of directors once went on Twitter and called a U.S. Senator “Senator Karen” because she suggested he—the richest man in the world—should pay income taxes. He paid $0 in income taxes last year.”

Another Twitter user posted that Musk paid $11 billion in taxes overall last year and that Hackett spreads fake news.

“Sawyer Hackett is the disinformation agent who invented the lie that border agents are whipping migrants. Not surprising that he would mention Elon Musk paying $0 in income taxes in 2021 without mentioning that Musk paid $11 BILLION in capital gains taxes.”

Journalist Andy Ngo posted several screenshots of Twitter employees losing it over Musk’s new position and power in the company.

Robert Reich, a staunch socialist and former Secretary of Labor for former President Bill Clinton, really lost it over Musk, tweeting (and retweeting his own tweet):

“So let me get this straight: Elon Musk thinks “cancel culture” undermines democracy and calls himself a “free speech absolutist,” but he’s threatened to sue bloggers and fired employees for speaking out about safety concerns?”

Reich continued by demeaning Musk as an “oligarch,” “What could possibly go wrong with an oligarch determining what constitutes free speech?”

Known for his moderate stance on politics, Musk has had a history of clashes with the Biden administration. He was never afraid of calling out and ridiculing President Biden.

At Twitter’s annual shareholders’ meeting in 2024, Musk’s term as a board member will expire. As long as he is on Twitter’s board and for 90 days afterward, the billionaire won’t be able to own more than 14.9 percent of the company’s issued stock.

Musk’s board membership was announced by Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal on Tuesday, stating that the billionaire brings ‘great value’ to Twitter.

Musk replied to the CEO: ‘Looking forward to working with Parag & Twitter board to make significant improvements to Twitter in coming months!’
