Elon Musk has been invited to appear before the DCMS Select Committee to discuss his proposed acquisition of Twitter.

Chair's comment

Chair of the DCMS Committee Julian Knight MP said:

“At a time when social media companies face the prospect of tighter regulations around the world, we’re keen to learn more about how Mr Musk will balance his clear commitment to free speech with new obligations to protect Twitter’s users from online harms.

Appearing before the committee will give Mr Musk an ideal opportunity to set out his proposals for Twitter in more depth and we would look forward to welcoming him.”

The letter sent to Mr Musk inviting him to appear is attached.
