The Tesla CEO has pitched several potential changes to Twitter since his bid was accepted by the board last month, including reversing former President Trump's ban, open-sourcing the platform's algorithm, adding a slight fee for government accounts, and general promoting free speech on what he has called the “de facto public square.” 

“I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy,” Musk wrote in an SEC filing.
