Elon Musk should consider building a new social media platform

It is better for Elon Musk to build a new social media platform, rather than pay $44 billion to buy Twitter and modify it extensively.

After taking over Twitter, he will face the attrition of many developers. He has to recruit new developers anyway.

It is easier to build a new platform, rather than make extensive changes to a legacy platform.

It may take some time to build the community, but it will be a new community with authenticated users (and not the bots).

Elon Musk has 93 million followers in Twitter. He should be able to get them to move to his new platform. This represents one third of the active users in Twitter.

I hope that Elon Musk considers the approach.

    Hey TKL,
    You are contradicting yourselves you know.

    If you love China so much that controlling news media is not a problem for you, Elon Musk on the other hand love unbridled freedom and he said he will unban Trump account.

  • BIG READ: Stop the PAP Steal:

    Huh.
    A small fry, of a peanut size of EM’s reputation, of a fraction of EM’s wealth, and of a faint shadow of EM’s business genius, attempting to lecture EM?
    Lets see if this lecture got posted on Twitter or EM’s FB page to catch attention of KKR, or Black Rock, for eg.
    PS. Go and built one prototype of an ebicycle first – to put SG on the world map. Or how about putting James Dyson to shame.

    I suggest a valuable tip – there’s an up and coming maker of carbon frame bikes.

    Twitter is overprice.No need to buy it at this price.
    $44 Billion can do a lot of better things.

    The great and wise TKL has spoken. It is only necessary for Elon Musk to obey.

  • Mr Tan appears close to Musk. Can Mr Tan please do us a favour and ask Musk to buy TRE too.

    Our asking price is only 1% of Twitter, reasonable right? lol
