Elon Musk tried to make way for Twitter

In some recent debunked tweets, Elon Musk seems to have tried to make a serious change to Twitter, apparently inspired by Facebook Gaming. In a post dated November 14, 2022, a Tesla investor named Sawyer Merritt appears to be pitching Elon Musk an idea for how he could introduce YouTube creators to Twitter and pay them more than the billion-dollar video streaming site to create Twitter-only videos.

Later, on November 22nd, almost 25 days after his takeover of Twitter, Musk shared statistics of how the platform despite receiving a lot of backlash from fans and the rise of the #RIPTwitter trend still managed to gain 1.6 million active users every day of the week.

However, Elon Musk was asked by YouTuber LifeOfTom what he thought about his purchase and the future of the social media platform, to which Elon replied, “I see a path.” While it wasn’t made clear which path he might be talking about, another conversation with MrBeast revealed a bit more.

What do the statistics say?

Since the statistics really intrigued MrBeast, he asked him, “I wonder what YouTube’s daily activity is?” in response to which Musk said, “Let’s see what happens when Twitter offers good video with higher compensation for creators…” To which MrBeast replied, “Higher compensation will be difficult, some YouTubers get $20+ RPM even after YouTube decides. I’d be shocked if you cracked that code.”

Therefore, it is clear that Elon is surely working on an idea about bringing content creators to Twitter. Another thing to note is that YouTube has a whopping 2.6 billion monthly active users while Twitter only has approx. User base of 396.5 million. It should be noted that this is not even close to Facebook’s 2.96 billion monthly users, of which only 173 thousand concurrent viewers watch content from Facebook Gaming.

Thus it is a direct analysis of Twitter’s failure to attempt what Facebook could not do with two billion users, with only 396 million users. Although, it is not yet certain whether the idea will fail or if miracles will happen; It’s pretty sure that Elon Musk has some pretty unorthodox ideas to make things work.
