Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover

• 25 min

It’s the news that was everywhere for one day and then sort of faded away. A bit like a viral tweet you might say, it dominated, and then we just scrolled on.   Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, reached a deal to buy Twitter.   The right were happy, the left were mad. And Twitter was the perfect place for everyone to sound off.   But the deal isn’t done and there’s still a long way to go.   We talk to our Washington Correspondent, Siobhan Kennedy, about who exactly is the man behind this mega takeover. We also talk to the former head of news at Twitter, Vivian Schiller, about free speech, the law and social media. Sources: Sky News, TED, Fox News, CNN Produced by: Freya Pickford
