Elon Musk Destroyed Twitter By Paying Money To Users??
Written by keerthiga Published on Sep 06, 2023 | 18:03 PM IST | 208
In the digital age, where information flows at the speed of light, social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter) have become both a blessing and a curse. While they offer a platform for sharing ideas, connecting with others, and staying updated on the latest news, they are also fertile ground for the spread of misinformation and fake news. Recent events, such as the false reports surrounding Kannada actress and Congress Member Divya Spandana, popularly known as Ramya, have highlighted the devastating consequences of misinformation and raised questions about the role of influential figures like Elon Musk in shaping online discourse.
The incident involving the false reports of Divya Spandana’s demise due to a cardiac arrest serves as a stark reminder of the perilous nature of information dissemination on social media. The rumors, which spread like wildfire across X, triggered a wave of shock and condolences from concerned individuals. However, it is crucial to emphasize that these reports were entirely untrue, underscoring the dangers of the rapid spread of false information in the digital age.
In the aftermath of the incident, as the realization of the fake news dawned upon users, messages and posts were hastily deleted. This swift cleanup only added to the confusion, leaving many wondering how such misinformation could gain such momentum in the first place.
Netizens React: “Elon Musk Destroyed X”
Elon has destroyed Twitter totally, FAKE news is everywhere just a rumour came about an actress. Everyone wants to post the news first and get some interaction, they don't even care whether the news is REAL or NOT. This is very SICK behaviour & never thought people will go this…

In the wake of this incident, netizens reacted with a mix of frustration and disillusionment. Many blamed Elon Musk for what they perceived as a decline in the quality of information on X. They believed that Musk’s presence on the platform had somehow encouraged the proliferation of unverified and sensationalized content. While it may be tempting to point fingers at Musk, it is essential to examine the broader context in which this situation unfolded.
Ya right. Elon musk is forcing ppl on X to go ahead n post unverified stuffs coz they don’t hv 2 mins of decency to verify n rather focus on breaking news 1st.
This is like sm theatre owners blaming actors for u facing loss after buying movie at overpriced rate out of greed. https://t.co/btWpoGwLH6

Elon Musk, the maverick entrepreneur and visionary behind companies like SpaceX and Tesla, is no stranger to controversy. His actions and statements have often made headlines and stirred up debates. In April 2022, Musk disclosed a 9.1% stake in Twitter and threatened a hostile takeover, setting off a chain of events that would ultimately reshape the platform. Twitter’s board eventually agreed to sell the company to Musk for a staggering $44 billion.
What you expect from media??? They will milk anything for impressions… https://t.co/ht4mCkwf9v

The deal’s closure in October 2022, though, was not without its share of drama. Musk attempted to back out of the deal, leading to Twitter’s decision to sue him. Ultimately, Musk emerged as the majority owner of the platform, which was subsequently rebranded as X. With an estimated 74% ownership stake, Musk had a significant say in the platform’s future direction.

The incident involving the false reports of Divya Spandana’s death serves as a stark reminder of the challenges posed by misinformation in the digital age. While social media platforms like X offer incredible opportunities for communication and information-sharing, they also present a breeding ground for false information, amplified by the pursuit of attention and engagement.
Blaming Elon Musk for the spread of misinformation on X may be an oversimplification of a complex issue. However, it underscores the importance of responsible information sharing and the need for platforms, users, and influential figures to play their part in combating fake news and promoting accuracy.
In the age of instant gratification and viral content, the battle against misinformation requires a collective effort to prioritize truth, accuracy, and responsible journalism over the race for likes and shares. Only through such concerted efforts can social media platforms like X fulfill their potential as sources of reliable information and meaningful discourse.
