Elon Musk would like to charge some Twitter users (but it won’t be a comment)

Earlier this week, Elon Musk tackled Apple and its 30% commission, and a tweet angry, he said: the App Store is like having a 30% Internet tax. I definitely disagree.

But that didn’t stop him from reflect on a reform of the economic model of Twitter. Indeed, he does not hesitate to mention the possibility of invoicing certain accounts: the network would still be free for casual users, with a slight surcharge for commercial/government users ! (note that he responds to a message on Freemasons…).

The fiery CEO of Tesla and SpaceX never stops talking and raising questions and fears about the future of the network (still waiting for the validation of the transaction…). Even if he says he wants make Twitter better than ever by improving the product with new features, making algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating spam bots and authenticating all humansin order to better promote the freedom of expression.

Still, he will have to find some funds to revive the finances of the platform (which has experienced many downs and few ups). Even though the banks seem to be following him, he reportedly said he was looking to develop new ways to monetize tweets and contain executive and board salaries to help reduce costs. To be continued…
