Elon Musk has big plans to make Twitter a ‘super app’ with the addition of payments/digital news world

Elon Musk doesn’t seem to be in the mood to fix the first social network Twitter. Instead, the richest person in the world is fixing social media as a whole and he plans to do it through payments.

The Tesla CEO specifically spoke recently about how he was more than interested in turning Twitter into today’s leading app that merges the platform with features like pictures, videos, and chats. And that also includes adding a diverse newsfeed style that would remind Facebook users.

But that’s not all because the Tesla owner has hinted that he’s also very keen on adding a primary focus and in case you haven’t guessed by now we’re talking payments.

Elon Musk appears to have made some very unique revelations about the app while appearing on the All-In podcast. And this is where the billionaire used WeChat in China as a real source of inspiration to launch his new ambitions via social networks.

The platform started out similar to Twitter and over time we saw it flourish after adding the popular mobile wallet where payment features could be done. Obviously, Musk was very excited to follow in WeChat’s footsteps as he couldn’t help but talk about his success with adding its payment options to the interface.

But rather interestingly, the billionaire even mentioned that he might not even need Twitter’s help to push the US version of the app in the right direction.

For Musk, the perfect representation of the super app is one that is spam-free and also one that practices freedom of speech without always having to worry about a ban on videos, images, quotes, etc. Likewise, he felt it was crucial to be able to debate good ideas too.

On top of that, Elon Musk was seen shedding light on how the “super Twitter” version could not only be trusted by everyone, but at the same time, would also be the one who practices inclusivity.

As you can probably expect, Musk doesn’t want to see the word ban on Twitter because he thinks it only complicates things, let alone pose an alarming threat to someone’s free speech.

We think that’s a little overbroad, especially in regards to the public comments Tesla was seen making about the fake Twitter account status.

When asked whether or not the billionaire was planning to walk away from the billion dollar deal, Musk indirectly blamed it on Twitter, adding that they had falsely reported their numbers on fake accounts and that c It was a huge mistake on their part.

“It’s huge to misquote something that is actually five to six times bigger in reality” – he revealed. And as you can probably tell, he’s not happy.

When Musk was asked about his preference for how he would like to move forward with Twitter, the billionaire mentioned how eager he was to start from scratch, even if it required more time, money and more. effort.

But before all that, Musk explained through his chat that money is important to creators and that they deserve a revenue share for all the hard work they put into the platform. Hence, that explains why he is so interested in pushing the concept of payments forward.

Therefore, we might expect a payment tool like PayPal or maybe Venmo to arrive soon. But keeping the past in mind, we’ve seen Twitter take this route before when it introduced features like Ticket Spaces for content creators. Similarly, there was another feature called Super Follows and soon after we also saw the cryptocurrency domain added.

While it may not have been as successful as WeChat or the way Elon Musk plans to introduce it, we know for sure that ultimately Twitter is a place people like to have conversations. trending conversations.

Seeing Musk do another initiative that aims to help creators generate revenue while driving conversations is a good place to start because it can help audiences interact with others in different ways.
