New Twitter owner Elon Musk says the addition of ‘similar’ game modes including PvP and role-playing makes a lot of sense.
Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk supports an idea that the social media platform should be divided into “game modes” like PvP and role-playing. Before officially taking ownership of Twitter, Musk believed significant changes were needed for its future. Furthermore, Musk is known to frequently mention video games and gambling games in his Twitter communications. Now that Musk’s Twitter acquisition has peaked, those ideas can be put to work.
Musk has previously described himself as a “liberalist” and a scathing critic of what he describes as “censorship that goes beyond the law” on Twitter. However, he has also set limits on these views, recently confirming that he doesn’t want Twitter to become a “free graveyard” in a promise to advertisers wary of what Musk does. will do. What Musk’s vision for the future of Twitter really looks like remains a mystery, especially considering Twitter’s ongoing problems with censorship of bigotry and misinformation prior to the acquisition.
A tweet from asking Musk to give Twitter “different game modes” could hint at what the billionaire has planned for the social platform. The tweet mentions “modes” including PvP, “where you can start cannibalizing and scrambling each other on verified personal accounts,” role-playing “for anon accounts with support.” minimal censorship” and normal Twitter “for everyone else with heavy censorship”. The idea is to create partitions between Twitter’s user base with different levels of moderation depending on how much of an account’s personal information has been verified.
Calling a subsection of uncensored Twitter “PvP” is a sarcastic and perhaps disturbing joke. The video game industry has gone to great lengths to reduce toxicity in competitive games, as well as promote a healthy community. Even under strict censorship, studies have shown that the majority of video game players have been harassed online, and more than half have been targeted based on large views.
Now, Musk has made transparent changes to Twitter’s moderation policy. However, he removed Twitter’s head of content moderation and posted a tweet saying, “Comedy is now legal on Twitter.” Musk also announced plans to create a content moderation committee with “broadly diverse views” that will oversee key content decisions and account recovery.
