Responding to Taylor Swift’s announcement of the re-release of her album “1989,” Musk said on X: “I recommend posting some music or concert videos directly on X.”
Also, Musk boasted that Tucker Carlson, who was fired from Fox News in April, has received more views since streaming episodes on X.
The number of viewers for his episodes on X now exceeds the population of the United States. Talk to Earth via X!” Musk tweeted.
A single viewer could be responsible for multiple views if they look at the same tweet repeatedly on Musk’s platform.
As a result, the CEO gets publicly pouty if celebrities don’t do what he wants. Musk has backed British comedian Russell Brand, who was recently accused of sexual assault by several women. The day before the investigation into the allegations was published, Brand shared a video on X denying the accusations.
Musk appeared to be irked when Brand later took to Rumble, another social media platform, encouraging his fans to follow him there and support him directly.
Musk lamented in his reply that “he is exclusively pushing Rumble when X has supported free speech as much.
