But, Twitter’s soon-to-be new owner also mentioned the social platform would be free for casual users. 

In a recent tweet about Freemasons, Twitter’s to-be new owner – Elon Musk – said Twitter might charge a small fee for commercial and government users. With this step, the billionaire entrepreneur is looking to grow Twitter’s revenue, which is behind the platform’s larger rivals like Facebook

In a tweet, Musk wrote, “Some revenue is better than none”. Earlier in April, Elon Musk said he was not focusing on making money with this acquisition. 

At the same, Musk also told the banks that are helping him finance the acquisition deal that he would cut down executive and board salaries. The entrepreneur also said that he would find new ways of monetising tweets to make the service more profitable.
