Blockchain-Based Twitter is not Possible, Says Elon Musk

It is not a secret anymore that the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Mr. Elon Musk, has been tempted to purchase Twitter for some time now along with the founder of FTX CEO Sam Bankman Fried

Musk also made a pretty decent deal to the founder of Twitter and the board members, which would have convinced them to let go of Twitter, but instead, it backfired pretty bad. 

Musk to Face Lawsuits from Twitter Board Members

Musk is facing lawsuits from the board members of Twitter for his bold move towards the purchase of Twitter and posing irregularities within the current structure of the company and how derailed the development team has done the service. 


CEO of the FTX, Sam Bankman Fried, asked Musk during their earlier intervention of buying Twitter off if they could shift the whole thing into decentralization if the prospect of a blockchain-based Twitter was indeed possible. 

And this is before the offer was turned down, Musk replied a bit negatively to the idea, and he turned it down completely by saying that the likes of it happening are extremely small and the chances are narrow at best.

According to Musk, if the idea is to be executed, then a perfect peer-to-peer network is to be established that has sumptuous latency and bandwidth, and that is a pretty impossible task to pull off. In some instances, either the latency or the bandwidth is going to tank, and in both cases, the continuity of the social media platform can’t be guaranteed. 

He also proposed a pretty erratic solution to the issue in the form of gigantic decentralized networks, but that puts a hole right into the integrity of the networks being decentralized hence the hesitancy towards pulling off this task. 

But now, when the deal is off the table and Musk is no longer interested in buying Twitter for the foreseeable future, it naturally means that there is no discussion spewing in the open world about turning a social media platform into a decentralized element. Guess the idea would be back in the works if another visionary like Musk or Musk himself pursued the idea.
