In a tweet, Musk stated, “Twitter is arguably already the least wrong source of truth on the Internet, but we obviously still have a long way to go.” He goes on to say that enabling the operation of @CommunityNotes at a large scale and providing maximum transparency about how Twitter works are fundamental to building trust.

Twitter is arguably already the least wrong source of truth on the Internet, but we obviously still have a long way to go.
Enabling @CommunityNotes to operate at very large scale and providing maximum transparency about how Twitter works are fundamental to building trust.
