Tesla owner and now the newly appointed CEO of Twitter Elon Musk, issued an apology on Sunday for the microblogging service’s very slow performance in some nations. A few minutes prior to making his apology, he said that Twitter feels increasingly alive.
In a tweet by Elon Musk, he said that he wanted to apologise for how sluggish Twitter can be in some locations. He added that over 1000 poorly batched RPCs are executed by the app in order to render a home timeline.
Musk did not disclose any other information on the proposed new feature, but it follows a sharp rise in fraudulent accounts in recent days that completely disrupted the microblogging network.
The business had to halt its $8 Twitter Blue programme due to the increasing number of fraudulent accounts with the verified blue tick, so he also revealed an upcoming feature. The website was quickly taken over by trolls who impersonated brands and celebrities.
In another tweet, Musk said that Twitter will soon make it possible for businesses to determine which other Twitter accounts are genuinely connected to them.
For businesses and advertising in particular, the situation was no less than a nightmare. For instance, the impersonated accounts that used Twitter’s new paid verification option to get the blue check for their tweets caused defence giant Lockheed Martin and pharmaceutical firm Eli Lilly to lose billions of dollars because of their posts. In another tweet, Musk said that Twitter will soon make it possible for businesses to determine which other Twitter accounts are genuinely connected to them.
It may be noted that previously, only verified accounts of well-known people, like . journalists, politicians and public figures, were given the blue tick. But last week, Twitter launched a subscription service that anyone could join for just $8 per month.
The corporation had faced a significant challenge as a result of numerous users imitating well-known brands on the website. Twitter’s blue tick subscription service was put on hold on Friday due to negative feedback from users and advertisers, Musk predicted it would resume by the end of next week. Additionally, it brought back the grey official verification mark for prominent accounts like those of brands and celebrities.
Twitter had also added the Official badge for other accounts, although it disappeared unexpectedly hours later
Twitter had also added the Official badge for other accounts, although it disappeared unexpectedly hours later. Besides, it may be mentioned here that Elon Musk had dismissed the board of directors of Twitter, giving him full control over the dominant social media platform shortly after he denied a story that said the business would fire thousands of employees before November 1.
In documents submitted to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Monday, it was revealed that after completing his $44 billion takeover of Twitter last week, Musk had fired the entire board and taken over as “sole director” of the company.
Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter started on April 14, 2022, and ended on October 27, 2022.
Additionally, it was alleged that the Tesla CEO had ordered a team to redesign the site’s verification procedure by November 7 or risk being fired. Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter started on April 14, 2022, and ended on October 27, 2022. In January 2022, business tycoon Elon Musk started purchasing Twitter, Inc. shares and by April, he had amassed a 9.1 percent interest in the company and was its largest stakeholder. Musk first accepted a request from Twitter to join its board of directors before turning it down.
In response to Musk’s unsolicited $44 billion offer, Twitter officials initially adopted a poison pill strategy to keep from a hostile takeover. However, on April 25, the board of directors of Twitter unanimously approved Musk’s buyout proposal, paving the way for the company to be taken private. Musk stated that he intended to expand the platform’s capabilities, advance free expression, make its algorithms open-source and block spammer accounts.
