Have you ever imagined tweeting from Mars? Well, Elon Musk is about to make your dream become a reality. During the TED2022 Conference, Elon Musk was interviewed by TED chief Chris Anderson.
When Chris asked Elon Musk about his intention of buying Twitter, Musk replied “This is not a way to make money. My strong intuitive sense is that having a public platform that is maximally trusted and broadly inclusive is extremely important to the future of civilization.”
So why is Elon Musk interested in buying Twitter for the future of Civilization? You are about to find out.
We all know about Elon Musk’s plan to send astronauts to Mars and colonize the planet before the middle of this century. To accomplish his goals of enhancing communication between Mars and Earth, Elon Musk saw the need to invest in a social media platform. Instead of creating a new social media from scratch, he decided to invest in Twitter as the platform appears to have the potential he requires for his plan.
Elon Musk also revealed that Twitter has several potential which he will unlock once he owns the company. He will likely change several features that will preserve the platform for future civilization.
Keep in mind that Elon Musk founded SpaceX in 2002 intending to build futuristic spaceships that can take humans to Mars. For about 2 decades ago, Musk saw the potential of colonizing Mars and building the first dome city on the planet.
He initially planned to put about 1 million people on Mars before 2050. However, the possibility of reaching this milestone highly depends on how fast SpaceX succeeds in reaching Mars.
Currently, SpaceX is working on several technologies to ensure that they reach Mars before the end of the next decade. Once SpaceX successfully sends the first set of astronauts to Mars, they will begin to work towards building the first Martian city on the planet.
Elon Musk said that SpaceX will remain a private company until the company achieves its goal of sending humans to Mars.
Once the First Martian City is built, interested astronauts willing to work on the planet can relocate and live in this futuristic city. These Martian astronauts will need a social media platform to share their experiences with people on earth.
Musk will likely change and upgrade several features on Twitter and make the platform accessible to the first Martian astronauts.
Musk visualizes the future from a different angle. He strongly believed in the future where people will access a futuristic like Twitter and use the platform to share their experiences, both on earth and among the stars.
After Elon Musk’s $44 billion offer was almost accepted by the company, Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and former CEO of Twitter congratulated him with this tweet.
From this tweet, you will realize that Jack is optimistic about the new features Elon Musk will add to the platform. These new features will surely be beneficial to the first civilization that will live on Mars.
If Mars becomes accessible to the public before 2100, people traveling to Mars for a vacation or research purpose will also use Twitter to share their experience on the red planet. Elon’s plan to buy Twitter will surely benefit people on earth and the future Martian explorers. Maybe, you could be one of these explorers.
Elon Musk has built several companies that are changing the world. Once he succeeds in buying Twitter, he will surely recreate the platform to have other futuristic features.
Through this approach, he will preserve the platform for the future civilization and make it accessible to Martian explorers. Do you believe in the future when Martian explorers will use Twitter to share their experiences on the red planet?
