November 5, Fineko/abc.az. US President Joe Biden said he was concerned about the purchase of Twitter by entrepreneur Elon Musk, since the social network of the same name owned by her is a tool that "spews lies to the whole world", ABC.AZ reports with reference to Reuters.

"And now what are we all worried about: Elon Musk goes out and buys an outfit that sends - that spews lies all across the world... There’s no editors anymore in America. There’s no editors. How do we expect kids to be able to understand what is at stake?" the White House host said, speaking at a campaign event in Chicago on Friday.

Musk's intention to buy Twitter for $44 billion was announced by the company's management in April. The conclusion of the transaction was postponed due to disputes between them about the number of fake accounts in the social network of the same name.

On July 12, Twitter's management went to court, trying to force the businessman to fulfill his obligations in this way.

It is expected that the new owner will abolish the practice of permanently blocking users. He also announced that he was creating a special council that would study the issue of content moderation.
