[ENGLISH VERSION]


Changes after Buying Twitter


Source

After buying Twitter for $44 billion, Musk has already started with big changes. The first of these was to fire people from important positions in the company and a few other people, keeping only the core team that would keep the platform running. This allowed a large reduction in payroll and freed up some of the company's employees who were not contributing to the company's growth.

One of the main reasons for its purchase is the fight for Freedom of Expression which is in the constitution of several countries, but it seems that many have forgotten. Close to the moment of purchase, Elon Musk tweeted with the phrase "the bird is freed", which can be interpreted as, it is no longer being controlled by politicians and advertisers, now the objective is to please the public. That's why the logo was also changed, representing the change in the platform's management, not to mention that website addresses with just one letter are extremely rare and expensive and Elon had owned the X domain for a while, so it was a good combination.

It's strange that it has to get to the point where someone with a lot of money needs to buy the platform to have freedom of expression, without third-party controls. After all, several countries have in their constitution a law similar to the "First Amendment", which guarantees the right to freedom of expression. In this sense, a new feature was the verification of content by users, a fight against Fake News and the freedom to not depend on the truth that one platform or another tells.



Ads on X

Some companies like Disney, Apple and IBM were fleeing the Twitter/X, and that could prove to be a big problem, because before musk the platform was highly dependent on advertising. However, at the New Your Times Summit where Musk told them to "Go Fuck Yourself", which means that blackmailing him with money would not work. And this is something that advertisers have every right to, if they don't want to advertise, just choose another platform and that's it.

After Musk bought the Twitter he decided to make big changes, and one of them was the revenue stream. Perhaps since the purchase he already expected this to happen and decided to add a monthly fee for those who wanted some benefits on the platform, such as the famous blue seal.

Recently, Elon Musk started a new project and to give more value to the monthly fee for X, it became available to be used during its trial period by those who have the blue badge and pay monthly for Twitter. His new project is an AI called Grook, which will be a "ChatGPT" that responds in a more "human" way. This shows how Elon has been gradually changing the company's revenue system, so that it does not have to depend on others, but rather on its own audience.



[VERSÃO PORTUGUÊS]


Durante a edição número 42 do cryptoholics, Eric e 0xNifty começaram o Space falando sobre algumas mudanças que aconteceram no Twitter, o agora chamado X. Vamos nos aprofundar e relembrar o que foram essas mudanças e falar do recente caso dos anúnciantes que o Elon Musk mandou eles "Fuck Yourself!".

Para quem tiver curioso sobre esse tópico ou outros que foram abordados durante o Space, vou deixar o link aqui embaixo:

Changes after Buying Twiiter


Source

Depois de comprar o Twitter por U$44 Bilhões, Musk já começou com grandes mudanças. A primeira delas foi demitir pessoas de cargos importante da empresa e mais alguns outras pessoas, mantendo só o core do time que faria a plataforma continuar funcionando. Isso permitiu uma grande redução na folha de pagamento e liberou um pouco da empresa de funcionários que não adicionavam para o crescimento da companhia.


Source

Um dos grandes motivos de sua compra é a luta pela Liberdade de Expressão que está na constituição de diversos países, mas parece que muitos esqueceram. Perto do momento da compra Elon Musk fez um twitter com a frase "the bird is freed", que pode ser interpretado como, não está mais sendo controlado pelos políticos e pelos anunciantes, agora o objetivo é agradar o público. Por isso, que a logo também foi mudada, representando a mudança na gestão da plataforma, sem falar que endereços de site com apenas uma letra são extremamente raros e caros e Elon possuia o domínio X há um tempo, então foi uma boa combinação.


Source

É estranho ter que chegar ao ponto de alguém com muito dinheiro precisar comprar a plataforma para ter liberdade de expressão, sem controles de terceiros. Afinal, diversos países possuem em sua constituição uma lei parecida com a "First Amendment", que garantem direito à liberdade de se expressar. Nesse sentido, uma nova funcionalidade foi a verificação dos conteúdos pelos usuários, um combate as Fake News e pela liberdade de não depender da verdade que uma plataforma ou outra dizem.



Anúncios no X

Some companies like Disney, Apple and IBM was fleeing the Twitter/X, and that could prove to be a big problem, because before musk the platform was highly dependent on advertise. However, at the New Your Times Summit where musk said to them to "Go Fuck Yourself", which means that blackmailing him with money would not work. E isso é algo que os anunciantes tem total direito, se não quiserem anunciar é só escolher outra plataforma e pronto.

After Musk bought the Twitter he decided to make big changes, and one of them was the revenue stream. Talvez desde a compra ele já esperava que isso pudesse acontecer e decidiu colocar uma mensalidade para aqueles que quisessem alguns benefícios na plataforma, como o famoso selo azul.

Recentemente, Elon Musk começou um novo projeto e para dar mais valor à mensalidade do X ele ficou disponível para ser usado durante seu período de teste por aqueles que tem o selo azul e pagam mensalmente o twitter. Seu novo projeto é uma IA chamada Grook, que vem para ser um "ChatGPT" que responde de forma mais "humana". Isso mostra como Elon vem aos poucos mudando o sistema de receitas da empresa, para que não tenha que dependerde outros, mas sim do seu próprio público.
