Talking about India, according to a report, there are more than 24 million Twitter accounts in our country. At the same time, if we talk about America, there are about 77 million Twitter accounts and Japan has about 58 million active users. From these figures, it can be estimated how much Twitter will earn in the coming days. Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion.
These facilities will be available upon getting blue tick
Elon Musk tweeted that users will get many facilities on getting a blue tick. These include priority in replies, mentions, and searches. Apart from this, ability to post long video & audio, and they would see half as many ads. He has also extended a paywall bypass for publishers, stating, “And paywall bypass for publishers willing to work with us”.
