How does Elon Musk monetize Twitter?

Wedbush Securities managing director Dan Ives discusses if Elon Musk can turn Twitter into a money-making business on ‘The Claman Countdown.’

Elon Musk tweeted early Saturday that Twitter users could potentially choose a version of the social media platform they like by using a rating system. 

Responding to a tweet from the founder of the Bay Area software company Replit, Musk presented the idea. 

"Being able to select which version of Twitter you want is probably better, much as it would be for a movie maturity rating," he said. 

"The rating of the tweet itself could be self-selected, then modified by user feedback," Musk added.

The new Twitter founder tweeted on Friday that Twitter will form a content moderation council "with widely diverse viewpoints."

He said that no major content decisions or account reinstatements will happen before the council convenes.
