Twitter CEO Elon Musk in an interview with Fox News told host Tucker Carlson that various government agencies effectively had full access to everything that was going on Twitter. The U.S. government was also spying on users’ DMs under previous management.
“The degree to which various government agencies effectively had full access to everything that was going on at Twitter blew my mind.”
He also commented on the disadvantages of artificial intelligence (AI) to mankind. He said AI is “more dangerous than mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production.” Musk believes AI has the potential of civilization destruction.
