Mr. Beast is asking some questions after Elon Musk’s pinky-promise that as soon as I find someone stupid enough to take the job, the YouTuber will resign as CEO for his elaborate gifts.
He put his name at the top to be the replacement for Elon Musk. It’s not clear whether either of them were joking or not, but it seems Mr. Beast supported Musk’s decision as Tweeter-in-Chief.
Responding to his poll where he said he would follow up on the consequences of quitting, MrBeast referred to Twitter’s later retracted policy that prohibited sharing links to other platforms and replied, “If you Will continue to work as is.
Elon Musk later apologized for the rule, reversed it, and said a vote would be held on major policy changes. There has been a back-and-forth on Twitter between the YouTuber and the CEO in the past. Late last month, Elon Musk tweeted that the number of daily active users on Twitter had increased, leaving Mr. Beast wondering what YouTube’s daily actives are.
Elon Musk responds, Let’s see what happens when Twitter introduces cool videos with higher compensation for creators. Mr. Beast, who drives a Tesla, was skeptical that CEOs would be able to do it, writing that higher compensation would be tough, with some YouTubers getting $20+ rpms, even after YouTube takes their cut. I’ll be shocked if you crack that code.
Currently, MrBeast is the most subscribed YouTuber in the world with over 122 million loyal followers. He is known for hosting stunts, pranks and massive cash prizes on his massive stage. In a cover story interview for Rolling Stone’s Creators Issue earlier this year, he talked about his seemingly altruistic approach to life, saying that he doesn’t talk about money.
I don’t want to live my life chasing the next shiny thing, the next shiny thing,’ he said in the interview. It’s a sad, pathetic way to go about life. Elon Musk left Twitter with several unresolved issues from his mass exodus into his ex-CEO vacancy.
Joining the growing list of celebrities who have left the social space and the decision to allow previously suspended accounts to return to the platform in a bid to woo people back is likely to be an uphill battle. Along with this, the revenue of the company has also fallen.
