Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk has highlighted some changes that might be coming to the social media platform.

The Billionaire tech CEO disclosed this on the platform itself through his own personal account.

He wrote,

“Twitter will always be free for casual users, but maybe a slight cost for commercial/government users,”. In another tweet, he added “Some revenue is better than none!”.

It was also reported earlier that Elon Musk told banks that he would develop new ways to monetize tweets.

Last month, Twitter accepted the $44 billon offer from Musk to buy the platform outright. This came after the Twitter board tried to block the world’s richest man’s offer to buy the platform. However, Musk didn’t falter and eventually got the deal through.

Musk has been detailing some plans he has for Twitter in the near future. Changes like adding an edit button, removing all bots and loosening content moderation.

In his press release after the deal was announced, Elon Musk said,

“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 spam bots, and authenticating all humans.”

When asked about his plans for Twitter during the MET Gala on Monday, He said,

“My goal, assuming everything gets done, is to make Twitter as inclusive as possible and to have as broad a swathe of people on Twitter as possible.”

The social media platform currently boasts 229 million users worldwide.
