Elon Musk’s Buy-in
Elon Musk has closed the deal on buying Twitter for US$44 billion a few weeks ago, as sources say. He removed key leaders from their positions, including the CEO Parag Agrawal, and became the sole director of the business. According to reports, he has also assembled a team of colleagues to assist him with running the company, including Calacanis and his own attorney. He has also apparently recruited Tesla staff to examine Twitter’s source code.
What is Twitter blue?
In 2009, Twitter implemented the blue tick verification method in response to celebrities’ worrying about impersonation. The initiative encountered difficulties when Twitter removed the verification status from contentious users like the right-wing figure Milo Yiannopoulos, and it was put on hold for a while before being resumed in 2021.
It’s an intriguing way for users to interact with each other and discover new content. Twitter blue is a place where people can share articles, videos, and pictures without having to leave the social media platform. This could be an incredibly powerful tool for promoting your brand or content on twitter.
