Elon Musk on Saturday evening said there is "definitely some risk" to his personal safety.

"Frankly," Musk said in a Twitter Spaces discussion, "the risk of something bad happening or literally even being shot is quite significant. I'm definitely not going to be doing any open air car parades, let me put it that way."

"It's not that hard to kill me if somebody wanted to, so hopefully they don't."

During his roughly two-hour discussion, Twitter's new owner spoke of his future plans for the company while emphasizing the importance of free speech.

"Throughout history," he adds, "free speech has been highly unusual, not common. So we have to fight really hard to keep that because it's such a rare thing and it's by no means something that's default. Controlled speech is the default, not free speech."
