Billionaire Elon Musk bought Twitter to ostensibly save democracy. Will this work? Or are they driven by completely different motives?

EThere is a whole smorgasbord of social networks on the Internet, and not all are of equal value to our democracy. If you want to see pets fighting over a bouncy ball, go to Tiktok. If you want to know where your aging school friends are going on vacation, look up Facebook. However, if you want to know how military experts assess a rocket hit in Poland and how the defense experts of the traffic light coalition react to it and what information the capital’s press is currently following up on citizen income, take a look at Twitter.

The interest of the American businessman Elon Musk, buying Twitter and the excitement about it can only be explained by the importance that Twitter has for election campaigns and political discourses in all western democracies. It is the social network for decision-makers, experts and observers.
