The conflict between Twitter and Elon Musk seems not to be solved soon. Both parties are kind of having a teasing relationship where every day they can be seen arguing. Recently, Twitter said they have approx. 5% of fake/spam accounts in their platform against that Musk asked for a deep analysis suspecting of having more.
Musk had offered $44 billion for the complete acquisition of Twitter, which now came into a negotiation after the platform reported having 15% of fake/spam accounts according to a new analysis. There may have many changes around the acquisition but one question that is constant since the day this business deal started is, “What changes Elon Musk will bring after buying Twitter?”
There are many confirmed ones and some are suspicious as the deal is.
You can post both photos and videos at a time?
Twitter currently supports either four photos or one single video to be posted. But some reports suggest users will be able to upload photos and videos combined in a single post just like on Instagram. Let’s see how it will work if you can’t agave an edit button for the same.
What about Twitter’s ad business?
Musk’s statements about reducing censorship of content on the platform and about free speech are the center point of any discussion he’s been part of. Recently, in an interview with the European industry chief Thierry Breton on 8th May, he was discussing acting upon the Digital Services Act. The Act will force platforms to tackle illegal content! Musk said he was “much of the same mind” and agreed with everything Breton said.
In the fast term, a few advertisement groups are already advising customers to test Twitter. An (unnamed) advertising executive said he expects negotiations to begin in the coming months to cut spending on behalf of a few customers, as Twitter can be very flexible at some point in the length of uncertainty before Musk completes his acquisition deal.
Do celebrities, politicians, and commercial users have to pay?
Governments and commercial users may soon discover that their tweets have a price to pay. Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk has hinted posted on his official Twitter handle that while the platform will still be free for casual users, there may be a slight cost for commercial and government users. Earlier, Reuters had reported, that Musk’s business plans for Twitter included generating revenue from viral tweets. The report also notes that his plans include charging a fee when a third-party website wants to quote or embed tweets from verified individuals or organizations.
Musk may reverse Donald Trump’s Twitter ban
Musk’s bid looks like a lot greater than simply a monetary takeover of Twitter. It’s additionally a political takeover, comparable to Rupert Murdoch’s 1976 deal for the New York Post and 2007 buy of the Wall Street Journal. The world’s richest person, who has said he “doesn’t care about the economics” of buying Twitter, is aiming to acquire a different kind of power, control one of the world’s largest megaphones, and the ability impose his libertarian ideology on questions of moderation and misinformation.
Twitter, as you recall, permanently banned Donald Trump from the service on Jan. 8, 2021, “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” after the Capitol riots. Musk has said he prefers to stay out of politics, but there are good reasons to suspect a Musk-owned Twitter would reactivate President Trump’s account. The Tesla owner earlier said, “I would reverse the permanent ban but I don’t own Twitter yet so this is not a thing that will definitely happen.”
There’s no one happier than Donald Trump for sure!
Elon Musk has tweeted and voiced such a lot of proposals for Twitter that it could be tough to understand which of them he is taking seriously. He’s joined the famous name for an “edit button” which Twitter says it is already operating on that might permit human beings to restore a tweet quickly after posting it.
A much less extreme concept from Musk cautioned changing Twitter’s downtown San Francisco headquarters to a homeless shelter “given that nobody indicates up anyway” — a remark taken greater as a dig at Twitter’s pandemic-technology group of workers than an altruistic imaginative and prescient for the building.
