It’s official. Elon Musk is buying Twitter for $44 billion.

As part of the announcement, Musk included a list of things he plans to do now that he’s in charge of the company.

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” said Musk in a statement included with the release. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans.”

While there are certainly a lot of potential changes ahead for Twitter, sports fans started asking for a specific request from Musk. Some fans want to see Twitter bring back the old sports scoreboard that used to be atop their timelines. That function was changed into a specific sports section on the social media platform, but some folks would love to see it return to their main timeline (though hopefully without some of the old bugs and updating issues).

There are certainly a lot of potential changes that many people are hoping to see from Twitter under Musk, including an edit button and changes to the way moderation is done. In the sports world, there are likely a lot of questions ahead about how they’ll change their live sports efforts, audio spaces, and content partnerships.

However, for the moment, even the simplest changes would be appreciated by some.
