Elon Musk closed a $44 billion deal—including over $20 billion of his own fortune—to take Twitter private at $54.20 per share this week. The stock closed up 5.64% after the announcement, which follows weeks of back and forth between the Tesla CEO and tech giant.

Twitter would become a private company if the deal closes as planned. While users and investors alike await shareholder and regulatory approval, Musk has publicly shared some plans he has for the social site.

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” he said in a tweet, He’s also recently tweeted that another social media platform, Truth Social, “exists because Twitter censored free speech,” calling out that the platform is beating Twitter and TikTok on the Apple Store. So users can likely expect to see loosened regulations around that.

Musk has also talked about enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to boost trust, cleaning up all the spam bots, and “authenticating all humans.” Plus, he believes the platform should have more privacy protection with DMs that “have end-to-end encryption like Signal, so no one can spy on or hack your messages.”

“Twitter has tremendous potential—I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it,’ he added, tweeting again that he wants to “make Twitter maximum fun.”

But speculation that Musk will delete the social media platform is circulating, keeping investors on the edge of their seats. Some users worry (and others hope) that Musk will vanish the platform altogether. And, while the plan is not necessarily to delete Twitter, Musk’s plans to take the social media company private would effectively delete it from the stock market.

Going private would mean that Twitter no longer has to comply with regulatory requirements or meet Wall Street’s expected quarterly earnings. This means that private companies may have more profit and resources to dedicate to development—so Musk could very well carry his ideas out to fruition, including any unpopular plans or any concepts to overhaul the whole product as we know it.

The process for converting a company from public to private is a nuanced one that, of course, would have an impact on investors who own the stock. If the merger closes as discussed this week, anyone who is invested in Twitter would get $54.20 in cash for each share that they own. From there, their shares would be canceled.
