With Elon Musk striking a $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter and take it private, the social media platform faces an uncertain future.

With Musk as owner, there are some big unknowns, ranging from its content moderation policies to the potential reinstatement of previously banned users — including former President Donald Trump and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene — to its ability to increase revenue, from advertising, subscriptions or other products.

“Where Twitter goes from here following Musk’s acquisition is honestly anybody’s guess,” Aron Solomon, chief legal analyst for Esquire Digital, said. “What is certain is that Musk and any other people who helped facilitate his bid are banking on the fact that Elon Musk at the helm of Twitter is going to … allow Twitter to grow and scale as it has yet to prove that it can do.”
