There is also the added fear of what might happen if Musk really lets the chains loose on Twitter and allows 'free speech' to reign free. Racism has already sky-rocketed on the site by a reported 500 percent since he took over.
Many now fear that Twitter is beyond repair and given that Facebook isn't that popular anymore and that TikTok and Instagram are too young for some folks the idea of returning to MySpace is looking more appealing.
However, MySpace isn't the website that it once was. Gone are the days of customisable profile pages, top friends lists and discovering new music acts like the Arctic Monkeys and Calvin Harris. Nowadays it is more geared toward music news but doesn't look to have been updated since March and if our experience on there is anything to go by, we wouldn't recommend it.
That being said there is still a lot of nostalgia for the site, especially if you're a millennial in your mid-to-late 30s.
\u201cdo people still use MySpace? maybe we should pivot back to MySpace\u201d
One of the best things about MySpace was the man who created it; Thomas Anderson who instantly became your first friend on the site when you created a profile. What a nice guy and unlike Mark Zuckerburg or Elon Musk he's one of the few social media moguls who has kept a low profile and has just enjoyed his early retirement.
Anderson sold MySpace in 2005 for $580 million (USD) to Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. This sort of spending money basically shields you from any sass that might come your way.
Tom's instagram account, aptly named @myspacetom, is basically a gallery of what $580 million will buy you.
