You should raise your offer
The perfect counter
You could easily clean up bots and spam and make the service viable for many more users Removing bots and spam is a lot less complicated than what the Tesla self driving team is doing ( based on hearing the last edge case meeting ) -
And why should blue check marks be limited to the elite , press and celebrities ? How is that democratic ?

Back of the envelope ... Twitter revenue per employee : $ 5B rev / 8k employees = $ 625K rev per employee in 2021 Google revenue per employee : $ 257B rev / 135K employee = $ 1.9M per employee in 2021 Apple revenue per employee : $ 365B rev / 154k employees = $ 2.37M per employee in fiscal 2021
Twitter revenue per employee if 3k instead of 8k : $ 5B rev / 3k employees = $ 1.66m rev per employee in 2021 ( more industry standard )

Insane potential for improvement

Sharpen your blades boys
2 day a week Office requirement = 20 % voluntary departures
I mean , the product road map is beyond obviously
Premium feature abound ... and twitter blue has exactly zero
What committee came up with the list of dog shit features in Blue ? ! ? It's worth paying to turn it off !
Yeah , what an insane piece of shit !
Maybe we don't talk twitter on twitter DM
Was just thinking that haha
Nothing said there so far is anything different from what I said publicly .
Btw , Parag is still on a ten day vacation in Hawaii
No reason to cut it short ... in your first tour as ceo
( !!! )
Shouldn't he be in a war room right now ? ! ?
Does doing occasional zoom calls while drinking fruity cocktails at the Four Seasons count ?

I'm starting a DAO
Money goes to buy twitter shares , if you don't wine money goes to open source twitter competitor @
Liked " Money goes to buy twitter shares , if you don't wine money goes to open source twitter competitor "
I will be universally beloved , since it is so easy to please everyone on twitter
It feels like everyone wants the same exact thing , and they will be patient and understanding of any changes ... Twitter Stans are a reasonable , good faith bunch
These dipshits spent a years on twitter blue to give people exactly .... Nothing they want !
Splitting revenue with video creators like YouTube could be huge unlock
We could literally give video creators 100 % of their ad revenue up to $ 1m then do split
5 Teams : 5 Northstar metrics 1. Legacy Opps : uptime , speed 2. Membership team : remove bots while getting users to pay for " Real Name Memberships " $ 5 a month $ 50 a year . Includes 24 hours response to customer service 3. Payments : % of users that have connected a bank account / made a deposit 4. Creator Team : get creators to publish to twitter first ( musicians , YouTubers , tiktokers , etc ) by giving them the best % split in the industry ( and promotion ) 5. Transparency Team : make the Algorithm & Moderation understandable and fair
I think those are the 5 critical pieces ... everyone agrees to " year one " sprint , including coming back to offices within the first 60 days ( unless given special dispensation for extraordinary contribution )
Hard Reboot the organization
Feels like no one is setting priorities ruthlessly .. 12,000 working on whatever they want ? ! ? No projects being cancelled ?!
Move HQ to Austin , rent gigafactory excess space
Want to be a strategic advisor if this works out ?
Board member , advisor , whatever ... you have my sword
Loved " Board member , advisor , whatever ... you have my sword "
If 2 , 3 or 4 unlock they are each 250b + markets
Payments is $ 250-500b , YouTube / creators is $ 250b +
Membership no one has tried really .... So hard to estimate . 1-5m paid members maybe @ $ 50-100 a year ? 250k corporate memberships @ 10k a year ?
You are a mind reader
Put me in the game coach !
Twitter CEO is my dream job
we should get Mr Beast to create for twitter ... we need to win the next two generations ( millennials and Z are " meh " on twitter )
Hell yeah !!
It will take a few months for the deal to complete before I'm actually in control
Just had the best idea ever for monetization ... if you pay .01 per follower per year , you can DM all your followers up to 1x a day .
500,000 follows = $ 5,000 and 1 DM them when I have new podcast episode , or I'm doing an event ... or my new book comes out
And let folks slice and dice .... so , you could DM all your twitter followers in Berlin and invite them to the GigaRave
Oh my lord this would unlock the power of Twitter and goose revenue massively .... Who wouldn't pay for this ! ? ! ?
and if you over use the tool and are annoying folks would unfollow you ... so it's got a built in safe guard ( unlike email spam )
Imagine we ask Justin Beaver to come back and let him DM his fans ... he could sell $ 10m in merchandise or tickets instantly , Would be INSANE for power users and companies
on thing you can do in this regard is an SPV of 250 folks capped at $ 10m .. pain on the next for a large company , but one item on cap table
You do have to have someone lead / manage the SPV
Liked " Go ahead "
When you're private its fairly easy to do , but I think current shareholders have to re - up
Are you sure ?
I am not
Have never done a take private
Large shareholders ( QPs ) are likely different than non - accredited investors
What's going on with you marketing an SPV to randos ? This is not ok .
Not randos , I have the largest angel syndicate and that's how I invest . We've done 250+ deals like this and we know all the folks . I though that was how folks were doing it .
$ 100m + on commitments , but if that not ok it's fine . Just wanted to support the effort .
~ 300 QPs and 200 accredited investors said they would do it . It's not an open process obviously , only folks already in our syndicate .
There is * massive demand to support your effort btw ... people really want to see you win .
Morgan Stanley and Jared think you are using our friendship not in a good way
This makes it seem like I'm desperate .
Only ever want to support you .
Clearly you're not desperate - you have the worlds greatest investors voting in support of a deal you already have covered . you're overfunded . will quietly cancel it ... And to be clear , I'm not out actively soliciting folks . These are our exiting LPs not rondos . Sorry for any trouble
Morgan Stanley and Jared are very upset
SPVs are how everyone is doing there deals now ... Luke loved to SPVS etc
Just trying to support you ... obviously . I reached out to Jared and sort it out .
Yes , I had to ask him to stop .
Liked " Just trying to support you ... obviously . I reached out to Jared and sort it out . "
Cleaned it up with Jared
Liked " Cleaned it up with Jared "
I get where he is coming from .... Candidly , This deal has just captures the worlds imagination in an unimaginable way . It's bonkers ....
