Elon Musk also complimented TikTok’s “boring” algorithm, adding that “we might refine Twitter, in the same manner, to be engaging.” “I believe Twitter can be a lot better in informing people of significant concerns,” he said, emphasizing the need for Twitter to be better at surfacing news.
He expressed himself. Musk replied that the business should be “contributing to a stronger longer enduring civilization where we are better able to grasp the nature of reality” when asked how Twitter’s success would be assessed in the next five to ten years.
During the call, Musk expressed his wish for Twitter to depend more heavily on subscriptions and fees, suggesting that people may pay to be verified. He advocated the establishment of an “irony” label to describe the motivation behind a tweet at one time.
He also underlined his aim to clamp down on bots and spam, saying that “having a troll army has to be considerably more costly.” The Tesla CEO threatened to terminate the purchase over the bot problem as a demonstration of good faith, compelling Twitter to provide him full data access.
Musk‘s remarks to Twitter employees on Thursday suggest that if his proposal to take the business private is approved, he would make big changes. He indicated that although he wants to make the company more fiscally cautious, he is not averse to “exceptional” individuals working from home.
He wouldn’t say if he’d stay on as Twitter’s CEO after assuming the position, but he did indicate he’d be highly engaged in the company’s product and operations.
At the end of the debate, Musk turned the topic to space, the age of the planet, and presumably dead civilizations on other worlds, adding that he had seen “no genuine proof for aliens, yet.”
