Elon Musk’s Twitter Takeover

Rebranded as X after its recent acquisition by Elon Musk, the widely-used social net- working service formerly known as Twitter faces an uncertain future.

This FRONTLINE documentary takes a look at the billionaire’s long and frequently troubled relationship with the platform, from his time as one of its most provocative users to his sub- sequent moves to make it a part of his empire, when he finally succeeded in mid-2023.

Also examined is the associated controversy surrounding the scope and limits of free speech in this volatile era. As ubiquitous online misinformation and propaganda continue to stoke conflict across the globe, reinforcing entrenched attitudes and polarising social and political debate, the consensus required to tackle pressing problems becomes increasingly elusive.
