Elon Musk stated that failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy because Twitter serves as the de facto public town square.

His tweet comes a day after he put out a Twitter poll asking users if they believed Twitter adheres to the principle of free speech, to which over 70 per cent voted "no".

This comes after Elon Musk stated earlier this week that "free speech is essential to a functioning democracy," and questioned whether Twitter "rigorously adheres to this principle."
