Will Elon Musk make Twitter more chaotic than it is already ?

<< < (18/20) > >>

Rhienfo:
Well... Elon is considering putting up a paywall for twitter. I don't think there has been a single time where a business has had more users/customers by making something that was once free behind a paywall.

If he actually goes through with it the only users will be bots (or a significant portion), cause most people will not pay for twitter period, even back when it was pretty good.

Such a stupid idea

Leslieann:
It doesn't matter, he killed it the moment he prioritized paid users, at that point it was already not just pay to play losing all relevance, making it all pay doesn't re-balance that problem it makes it worse.

He seems to (wrongly) think this will remove the bots.
Bots are already pay to play and this change means Twitter will probably spend even less effort fighting said bots, not that they ever prioritized it. Bots are really the only reason Twitter stayed relevant, no one really cares to hear what all these people are really saying on a day to day basis, do you honestly think most of these people say would gain any traction at all without an army of bots promoting them? It was always paid promotion, just most people didn't realize it.


Maybe Musk really does understand Twitter, he's just pulling back the curtain, the problem is that people come for the puppet show not the puppeteers.
