“I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential.
I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
However, according to the Twitter CEO, Parag Agrawal,
“Twitter has a purpose and relevance that impacts the entire world. Deeply proud of our teams and inspired by the work that has never been more important.”

Notwithstanding, today, it was rumored that the platform would accept his offer.
