Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Elon Musk's vision for Twitter includes allowing users to turn on a setting that blocks offensive comments”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Billionaire Elon Musk on Tuesday proposed a Twitter feature that would allow users to set preferences limiting what they see on the platform and block content they find offensive.

Musk, who's set to purchase Twitter for $44 billion, said at the Qatar Economic Forum that this would be a step toward making Twitter an "appealing system to use."

He said Twitter should allow people to say what they want on the platform within the "boundaries of the law," but then limit who sees their comments based on other users' preferences.

"If your preferences are to see or read anything, then you'll get that," he said. "But if your preferences are well, you prefer not to see, you know, comments that you find offensive in one form or another, then you can have that as a setting and not see it."

The Tesla CEO said he still believes that Twitter should be as inclusive as possible but said there's a "big difference between freedom of speech and freedom of reach."
