Elon Musk is tweeting about Twitter once again.
This time, he’s created a variety of tips for Twitter Blue, the social networks giant’s membership service. They consist of a rate cut, the choice to pay in dogecoin and prohibiting advertisements.
The billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX– who now owns 9.2% of Twitter– is a respected Twitter user, frequently moving markets with his tweets.
He was designated to Twitter’s board of directors on Tuesday and stated he eagerly anticipates dealing with the board to make “significant improvements to Twitter in the coming months.”
Launched in June, Twitter Blue is the social networks giant’s very first membership service for those ready to spend for unique access to unique functions– such as an “Undo Tweet” function, personalized Twitter app icons and the capability to include bookmarks.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, Musk recommended there must be no advertisements which the membership rate be cut.
“Everyone who signs up for Twitter Blue (ie pays $3/month) should get an authentication checkmark,” he tweeted.
“Price should probably be ~$2/month, but paid 12 months up front & account doesn’t get checkmark for 60 days (watch for CC chargebacks) & suspended with no refund if used for scam/spam,” he stated.
“And no ads. The power of corporations to dictate policy is greatly enhanced if Twitter depends on advertising money to survive,” he included.
Musk likewise proposed that the rates “should be proportionate to affordability & in local currency.”
“Maybe even an option to pay in Doge?” he recommended, describing the cryptocurrency.
Twitter has yet to react to CNBC’s ask for remark.
The Twitter Blue service is offered in just the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The reverse function lets customers alter their tweet prior to it goes live. It is not an edit function, which Twitter users have actually frequently asked for. “It’s not an edit button, but a chance to preview and revise your Tweet before it’s posted for the world to see,” the business has actually stated.
