Update on May-13-2022 – Elon Musk Says His $44 Billion Twitter Deal Is ‘On Hold’

Elon Musk Buys Twitter

Elon Musk, the entrepreneur behind PayPal, Tesla, and SpaceX has acquired another company – Twitter. If you’re thinking “Really!?”, then you’re not alone. This is not the first time that a successful entrepreneur has acquired a struggling company and it isn’t the first time that someone has acquired Twitter but it is a little bit unique. We’ll look at the reasons why Elon Musk acquired the Twitter company, what he might do with it, and why it could be a great move for Musk and Twitter.

The 11 members board of Twitter Inc. on Monday (25-Apr-2022) accepted Elon Musk’s bid offer of $44bn (£34.5bn) to take over the company which would give the world’s richest man control over the social-media network where he is also among its most influential users.

Twitter Inc, founded in 2004, ended 2021 with $5bn in revenue with over 217 million daily users globally which is one of the top social media platforms over the years. Bret Taylor, the chairperson of the company’s board, said it had fully assessed Mr. Musk’s offer and it was “the best path forward for Twitter’s stockholders”.

Why Elon Musk Shown Interest to Buy Twitter

The Microblogging firm initially rejected Musk’s bid, but it will now ask shareholders to vote to approve the deal. Elon Musk is the world’s richest person, according to Forbes magazine, with an estimated net worth of $273.6bn mostly due to his shareholding in electric vehicle maker Tesla which he runs and also leads the aerospace company SpaceX.

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spambots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.

The move comes as Twitter faces developing tension from legislators and controllers over the substance that shows up on its foundation. It has drawn pundits from the left and directly over its endeavors to intervene in falsehood on the stage.

In one of its most high-profile moves, last year Twitter banned former US President Donald Trump, maybe its most influenced user account, referring to the gamble of “incitement of violence”. Although Mr. Trump on Monday told Fox News he had no idea to re-join Twitter.

At the time Elon noticed: “A lot of people are going to be super unhappy with West Coast high tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech.”

Elon Musk’s Twitter Controversy

Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk, who has more than 84 million followers on Twitter, he has very familiar with his controversial tweets on the platform itself. In 2018 US financial regulators accused him of misleading Tesla investors with his tweets, claims that were resolved in a $40 million settlement and still Musk continues to deny this as a false accusation. In 2019 he was involved with a defamation suit – which he successfully defeated – after calling a diver involved in rescuing schoolboys in Thailand “pedo guy” on the platform.

“I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter because that is what free speech means,” he wrote just hours before the deal was announced.

Who will Lead Twitter from Now

It is not clear who will lead the company moving forward. Twitter is currently led by Parag Agrawal, who took over from co-founder boss Jack Dorsey last November. But in his offer document, Elon Musk mentioned Twitter’s board: “I don’t have confidence in management.” Mr. Agrawal told employees on Monday that the future of Twitter is uncertain. “Once the deal closes, we don’t know which direction the platform will go,” he said, according to the Reuters news agency.

Twitter’s Algorithm Opens to the Public

Musk has said that the product that figures out what individuals see and how generally satisfied spreads on Twitter ought to be aired out. He upholds putting Twitter’s calculation on GitHub, a site famous with software engineers for sharing computer code. Twitter processes billions of bits of content consistently. How and why tweets turn into a web sensation, and how Twitter’s proposal framework works, is so thick and complex that the organization’s own computer programmers can be puzzled attempting to figure out its rationale.

Russia – Ukraine Crisis

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused global angst, putting the military superpowers of the world at odds formerly again, and potentially forcing an intervention that could lead to one of the biggest conflicts in decades. And unlike analogous incidents in times once, this battle is playing out in the age of social media, with memes, misinformation juggernauts, and swindles all adding to the growing whirlpool of information, which can confuse, deform and cloud what’s passing in the eastern European region. 

After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine officially began, social media was flooded with photos of bombed-out buildings, first-person accounts from Ukrainian civilians fleeing their homes, and even videos purporting to be from soldiers engaged in the fighting.

Given this, and the part that social media now plays in the dispersion of information, the platforms need to work presto to limit any abuse of their networks for questionable purposes, and numerous have formerly legislated plans to alleviate certain rudiments of abuse and misinformation.

How Social Media Platforms are responding to the crisis between Ukraine and Russia

Here it’s how Social media Platforms are responding to the crisis between Ukraine and Russia.

Meta

Facebook is at the main center of the social media information shared within the conflict zone, with around 70 million users in Russia, and 24 million in Ukraine by Nov 2021 which is approximately half of the total population of each respective nation.

Late last week, the Russian Government announced that they would restrict access to Facebook due to Meta’s refusal to remove misinformation warning labels on posts from state-affiliated Facebook pages. Now, Meta has taken that action and also prohibited ads from Russian state media FB pages, and demonetized these accounts, severely limiting the capacity for Russian authorities to use Facebook as an information vector.

Russia also has its own social media and messaging platforms such as VK, OK, Viber, Telegram, and other apps. So they easily communicate and post their activities to motivate Russian citizens. But Meta has taken a strong stance, while it’s also restricted access to many accounts within Ukraine, including those belonging to Russian state media organizations.

In addition to this, Meta has also opened a special operations center, staffed by native Russian and Ukrainian speakers, to monitor for harmful content trends. If users share war-related images and videos, it adds new warning labels to their posts.

Meta’s also outlined a range of safety features for users in Ukraine, “including the ability for people to lock their Facebook profile, removing the ability to view and search friends lists, and additional tools on Messenger”. Meta works hard to find the misinformation posts from spammers and scammers seeking to capitalize on the situation for engagement.

YouTube

At the request of the Ukrainian Government, Google-owned second largest search engine and top video platform YouTube has announced that it’s restricting access to Russian television networks and youtube channels for users in Ukraine and also suspending monetization feature for a few Russian channels. It also removed Russian state-owned YouTube channels from recommendations and limited the reach of their uploads across the platform.

Russia YouTube Channels Blocked in Ukraine

As per YouTube (via The Wall Street Journal): 

“As always, our teams are continuing to monitor closely for news developments, including evaluating what any new sanctions and export controls may mean for YouTube.”

Twitter

Twitter also announced a temporary ban on all ads in Ukraine and Russia “to ensure critical public safety information is elevated and ads don’t detract from it”. Twitter banned political ads back in 2019, including those from state-affiliated accounts.

The #Kiev hashtag (at 2.5 million posts) was dominant on microblogging platform Twitter, while #STOPWAR (2,52,000), #Ukraine Russia (255,000), #Ukraine under attack (65,600), #Russia Ukraine War (27,800), #Russian invasion (68,700), #Poland (296,000), #Russians (608,000) and #America (774,000) were the other main trending ones on the platform a few days back during russia-ukraine war. 

Ukraine’s official Twitter account wants @Russia to be removed from the platform.

In addition, Twitter’s safety and integrity teams were monitoring the tweets and potential risks associated with the conflict to protect its services, including identifying and disrupting attempts to amplify false and misleading information, said a spokesperson. 

TikTok

Tiktok, the popular video creation app used by more than 1 billion people has been amplifying videos portraying old conflicts, scenes from movies, and even video game battles as if showing on-the-ground live footage.

The short video sharing platform TikTok reports that Russian-affiliated groups are using the app to spread ‘orchestrated disinformation’, while thousands of related videos are being uploaded to the platform, many fake, causing significant headaches for TikTok’s moderation teams. 

As of Friday (Feb-25-2022) evening, videos with the hashtag #RussianInvasion have received 32 million views and videos with the hashtag #RussiaUkraine have racked up 132 million views.

TikTok’s algorithm designed something of a paradox: If you watch a video repeatedly to try to understand whether it’s authentic or return to one after conducting research, “you’re telling the algorithm you want more of this,” Gregory said.

The introduction of monetization option TikTok influencers for popular clips has also added new motivation for bad actors to create fake streams and broadcasts in the app, in a bid to lure viewers, while on the other side, reports have also suggested that Ukrainian TikTok users are using the app to communicate Russian troop locations to Ukrainian fighters.

Let’s hope this war stops soon between Ukraine and Russia and Peace Spreads Everywhere!

Record Space Feature

Great news for all Twitter Spaces hosts! Twitter has announced that all Spaces hosts can now record their chats, on both iOS and Android devices. Twitter first enabled this recording option to a limited number of hosts in October and also said the feature would be available to all hosts soon. This record option will not be available on the web for now, as you can only join Spaces through the Twitter website as a listener.

Twitter Record Space Feature

On Jan 14, 2022, Twitter announced on its Twitter Support account, all Spaces hosts will now see the “Record Space” button in the Twitter app for iOS and Android. Once you tap, Twitter will record the complete conversation on the space and make it available for anyone who wants to listen to it again later. If you’re unable to join a Spaces session at a particular time when it was live, this record space feature will give the option to listen to the conversation.

Keep in mind, recorded Spaces will not be available forever. According to the Twitter microblogging site, once the Space ends, Hosts will have access to the full-length Recording for 30 days after the initial broadcast, during that time they can share it or Tweet it. After this period, the recorded Spaces are permanently deleted from the account. Hosts can also delete recorded Spaces before 30 days if they want.

The social media giant said the purpose of this new functionality is to host users who have friends that are not on Twitter but would still want to listen in on a Space. This feature also gives competition for Clubhouse and Facebook’s Live Audio Rooms.

It’ll be interesting to see twitter’s strategy changes under new CEO Parag Agrawal, who took over from Jack Dorsey back in November. They plan to give more focus Spaces discovery can be improved or maximized in order to build the audio platform into a bigger consideration.

Twitter Tip Jar Feature

On May 6th, 2021 Twitter introduced Tip Jar, a new feature for people to send and receive cash from any profiles as tips. From this users can add links to their PayPal, Patreon, Venmo id, Cash App, or other digital payment accounts in their bio, so their Twitter fans and followers can send a few bucks if they like their tweets or their birthday or special occasions. Twitter won’t charge anything for this and users can also send tips through spaces. But the Payment service availability and features vary by region.

Twitter's Tip Jar Feature

Twitter adds RazorPay to Tip Jar

Currently, India is the third largest user market, behind the US and Japan. So the happy news for Indian Twitter users is that they are adding an Indian payment gateway, Razorpay, as an additional payment provider to it. Razorpay is an Indian digital tech company that offers a payment gateway for more than 50M businesses. 

To begin, just a limited group of users only will get this Tip Jar feature and will see the choice to add Tip Jar to their profile. This feature is now available for journalists, content creators, well-known individuals, experts, and leaders. It is the first of a few impending ways for makers to adapt their substance and bring in cash from their greatest allies. Everybody can send tips to appropriate users on Twitter for iOS and Android through third-party payment services. 

Twitter Adds Razorpay in Tip Jar

As explained by Twitter:

“By integrating Razorpay, we’re hoping to provide people in India with a simple and secure way to send money as a token of appreciation or as a gift. Tip Jar is available in multiple Indian languages including Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, and Tamil.”

How To Setup Tip Jar Feature on Twitter

  • If Tip Jar is enabled, you will see a Tip Jar icon is available next to the Follow button on their user profile page. 
  • Tap the icon, and you’ll see a list of payment services or platforms that the account has enabled. 
  • Select whichever payment service or platform you prefer and you’ll be taken off Twitter to the selected app where you can show your support in the amount you choose.

Tip Jar is available for both iOS and Android users’ Twitter profiles whereas this feature is accessible within Twitter Spaces on Android only.

Twitter is fastly improving its feature and moving with the next phase of its creator monetization options. Twitter is opening applications for a limited test of its Super Follows and Ticketed Spaces features which are initially US-based Twitter users can apply separately for each program through Twitter’s mobile app soon it will be available to all other countries. Now, Twitter is rapidly adding new features and acquiring companies like Revue (a newsletter platform), Ueno (a creative agency), and Breaker (a social podcasting platform). 

As per Twitter:

“At Twitter, we want to help people make money, and give them tools they can use to be rewarded for their work and feel supported by their audience. We’re looking for a small group of people to be the first to try Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows with their audiences and share feedback. Help us test and improve these experiences before they launch more broadly in the coming months.”

Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows

Earlier this year in February during an Analyst Day event, Twitter announced they will select a “small group” of users to test its new monetization features. The Super Follows feature lets users charge $2.99, $4.99, or $9.99 per month for access to exclusive content. Ticketed Spaces lets them charge between $1 and $999 for access to one of Twitter’s social audio chat rooms, and it offers extra features like setting a room size cap. Test group participants will initially keep 97 percent of the money they make with Ticketed Spaces or Super Follows, after the fee that iOS and Android charge for in-app purchases. Twitter will increase its cut from 3 percent to 20 percent if a user makes a total of $50,000 on both systems. 

Twitter's Super Follow and Ticketed Spaces

Twitter’s 20 percent commission is lower than that of some other subscription platforms like youtube, Spotify, and clubhouse. Amazon-owned video service Twitch takes a 50 percent cut from subscriptions, and YouTube charges 30 percent of membership fees. Clubhouse and Instagram have features that let listeners tip speakers or award badges in a live audio space, but the apps don’t yet allow for advance ticket sales. Another way for top creators to make money on these apps is through Creator Funds. So, Ticketed Spaces seem very promising though, since Spotify Greenroom, Clubhouse, and other competitors don’t offer similar options like Twitter. But Discord is testing ticketed audio events on its Stage Discovery portal, but they aren’t out to its users yet. 

How to Apply Supper Follows and Ticketed Spaces

Applications to use Super Follows and Ticketed Spaces are only available on mobile. Super Follows are restricted to iOS users, while Ticketed Spaces are available on both iOS and Android. Users can see if they’re eligible to apply by checking a new “Monetization” option in the mobile app sidebar.

Twitter also recently introduced Twitter fleets which are like story-type disappearing tweets and Twitter spaces which is a group audio chat to discuss anything with followers. Try these too!

What is Twitter Spaces and Know About this Audio Chat Room Features

Spaces is an audio-only voice chat feature that lets a host stream voice chats with other Twitter users. Audience members can either listen in or become part of the conversation.

Last year December, Twitter introduced Spaces: a live audio room conversation feature on Twitter. Since then, Twitter has been building and testing with a limited group of people and has found that hearing people’s voices bring conversations on Twitter to life in a completely new way.

Recently, Twitter announced in a blog post that it is opening its spaces feature to all users with at least 600 followers including both iOS and Android users. Twitter also officially plans to launch new features like Ticketed Spaces, scheduling features, reminders, support for co-hosting, accessibility improvements, and more.

Ticketed Spaces lets Space hosts monetize their Spaces for a monetary fee. A limited group of Twitter users will be able to test Ticketed Spaces “in the upcoming months”. Users can also be able to set reminders for spaces and schedule time slots for future Spaces. Co-hosted Spaces are better live captioning, and better access to Spaces via a profile icon on a Twitter feed are all coming to Spaces in the future.

The Spaces feature came about because of the mind-boggling prevalence that emerged from Clubhouse, a startup application dependent on a similar reason: facilitating public voice chat with different clients and permit audiences to tune in live. Clubhouse gained its prominence during the center of the pandemic as many were isolating and investing free time at home.

Spaces available in both android and iOS Twitter app, which is a big advantage as it competes with Clubhouse which is currently available on iOS only.

Here’s what Twitter has to say about Spaces:

You’ve always followed people for their Tweets, now Spaces lets you hear their voices and talk about what’s happening now and what’s most important to you – live. From Tweeting to talking, reading to listening, Spaces encourages and unlocks real, open conversations on Twitter with the authenticity and nuance, depth and power only the human voice can bring.

How to Start Spaces in Twitter

Spaces are public and appear on top of the timeline along with Fleets. It will show up only when someone you follow has started a Space, then you can join the conversation as a listener. Even if you don’t follow that person you can still join if you have the space link. A host can Invite people to join a space by sending an invite via DM, Tweeting the link on your timeline, or sharing other social media platforms. Twitter Spaces has a limit of up to 11 people including the host who can speak but there is no limit on the number of listeners.

Here is the simple step to create twitter spaces

  • Open the Twitter app, and press on the tweet compose button. 
  • You’ll see a new Spaces icon which is multiple circles forming a diamond shape. 
  • Tap on the icon to start a new Space.

How Twitter Spaces Works

On Twitter for iOS and Android, when someone you follow starts or speaks in a Space, it’ll appear at the top of your timeline (fleets) as a purple bubble for as long as it’s live. When you join a Space as a listener, you can react to what you hear with emojis, check out any pinned Tweets, follow along with captions, Tweet or DM Space, or request to speak. Anyone can report and block others in the Space, or report the Space if you violate the space rules.

What is Fleets on Twitter

Twitter recently launched a new feature called Fleets which is similar to Instagram Stories where tweets automatically disappeared after 24 hours. Users can only see fleets, there is no option to give Likes, Retweets, or replies to these tweets. After testing various countries fleets now available globally for Twitter users that “Fleets helped people feel more comfortable joining the conversation,” leading people to “talk more” on its platform, “sharing personal and casual thoughts, opinions, and feelings.” This new feature helps users to express their thoughts freely that are only available for followers.  

Twitter Fleets currently available only on android and iOS phones. So you can’t use the Twitter fleet feature on a desktop browser.

In this article, we will discuss everything about Parler, how to use Parler social app, and how it differs from Twitter and other social media networks.  

What is Parler and How to Use

Parler is a free speech social media app created and launched in 2018 by University of Denver graduates Matze and Jared Thomson. Parler LLC company is located in Henderson, Nevada, and it has between 11 to 50 employees, according to LinkedIn. Parler means “to talk” in French and is meant to be pronounced as PAR-lay. But as more people started saying the app’s name like the English word “parlor,” that pronunciation took over. 

According to the sensor tower report, this app was installed 210000 globally on Jan 8th, 2021. The company noted that Parler was the #1 app on the iOS app store for two days and overall, the app was the 10th most downloaded app in 2020 with 8.1 million new installs. The platform describes itself as being the world’s “premier free speech platform”. “Speak freely and express yourself openly, without fear of being “de-platformed” for your views,” the website of the platform says.

It gives the same feel as twitter while using and you can follow any accounts, comment on a post, use hashtags to search, and content appear in chronological order in the news feed. Parler online users can post up to 1,000 characters, which is more than Twitter’s 280-character limit, and also upload photos, GIFs, and memes. In Parler, there’s a feature called “echo,” with a megaphone icon, that functions as the Twitter retweet button, and there’s an upvote icon for a feature that resembles “liking” a post on other social media platforms. Same as other social media networks, you have to be at least 13 years old to join parler social media website.

If you think is parler app free and safe to use? then the answer is yes. Parler app is a completely free application that available on both iOS and Andriod Play Store. For use of this application, they don’t charge any amount from users. Parler stocks are not publicly traded because it is a privately owned company so you can’t buy parler stocks.

Who Uses Parler

The company’s CEO, John Matze told Fox Business in June 2019 that the Parler app is mostly used by conservatives but that there have also been “left-leaning individuals” tied to the Black Lives Matter movement who’ve joined the app to “argue with conservatives.” He also said to CNBC in the same month that he doesn’t need the application to be a reverberation chamber for moderates, taking note that he doesn’t care for either the Democratic or Republican party.

If you join Parler free speech social network, it requests your email and telephone number, yet it doesn’t request your political group. It likewise doesn’t mark itself as an informal organization for preservationists. 

At the point when you join the application, Parler prescribes a few moderate clients to follow, however, there aren’t any liberal ones – likely because they haven’t joined the application or don’t have a huge after. There are a few phony records for administrators, including one for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The main reason for conservatives joining this app is that Twitter and Facebook alleged for many years suppressing their speech. 

How is Parler different from Twitter and Facebook?

Parler – the “free speech-driven” space has less rules and guidelines than Twitter and Facebook over what it permits on its organization. Clients can report a post for disregarding Parler’s strategies, yet the organization doesn’t have outsider certainty checkers and doesn’t mark deception. 

A portion of the substance that is banished on Parler, however, is permitted on Twitter. For instance, Parler’s principles disallow porn, yet Twitter allows clients to share “consensually created grown-up substance” on the off chance that they mark the media as “delicate.” Facebook doesn’t permit clients to post pictures of sexual movement.

This conservative social media app also has different-colored verification badges. A gold badge is given for public figures who have more followers, and a red badge indicates that an account is a real person and not a bot. Parler has rules against spam, which include “repetitive comments and posts which are irrelevant to the conversation.”

Parler CEO says it’ll never sell or share user data, its privacy policy states that it may use the data it collects only for advertising and marketing purposes. Parlour social network strictly not allow spam, unsolicited ads, terrorists, threats to harm, pornography, and content that glorifies violence against animals.

Recently this conservative social media app Parler was removed from the Google Play store as Apple App Store suspension reportedly looms. On the other hand, Amazon also has suspended the platform from its web-hosting service called Amazon Web Services but within a week Parler’s website is back online.

“Hello world, is this thing on?,” Matze asked in a message dated Saturday, posted above a note from the company saying the platform would be restored after challenges were resolved.

On January 29, 2021, the parler board controlled by Rebekah Mercer terminated the CEO John Matze.
