Elon Musk may not be Twitter’s saving grace, according to Bill Gates.
The ex-Microsoft CEO said in an interview with the BBC on Wednesday that Twitter as platform “could be worse,” under Musk, although he was careful to say the opposite could be true as well.
“You know, Elon, I guess it’s possible Twitter could be worse. But it also could be better… So I have a wait and see attitude,” Gates told the BBC.
Gates added that he admires Musk for his work Tesla and SpaceX.
“So far, the things Elon’s tackled he’s done a spectacularly good job, his work at Tesla helps with climate change, with SpaceX he’s gotten way out in front on that,” he said.
