Elon Musk's Twitter suspension rules to help firm make generate- Tech Analyst
A tech analyst has hinted that with Twitter losing millions of dollars per day, new CEO Elon Musk has had to put in place stringent measures to generate revenue and this includes getting rid of parody accounts.
Twitter has been losing revenue about $4M/day and Twitter blue is what Elon believes will help the company get back to making profit along with ad revenue, which has dwindled.
He explained that if verified accounts can keep changing their names and impersonating other accounts, this would make it even more terrible.
He noted that Elon has tried to make example out of others on this matter and this includes celebrities like Medikal.
"You have to understand that there's been a "mini protest" by people who don't like Elon. Which is hurting their revenue," he told YEN.com.gh in an interview.
However, with Elon Musk resuming work recently, he stated that operations within Twitter are still not well-structured, and with time people will get a better view of how the billionaire wants to run Twitter and what happens to jobs at Twitter since about 50 percent of its employees have been laid off
