Elon Musk Reveals Crypto Twitter Plans in Leaked Transcript Of Employee Q&A

Elon Musk shared further details of his plans for how crypto could be used on Twitter in a leaked Q&A session with employees of the social media company.

Per a transcript of the meeting released by Vox, the billionaire Tesla CEO expounded on how payments, including crypto, are a “critical area” for Twitter, and highlighted the ongoing issue of crypto scams on the social media platform.

“Money is fundamentally digital at this point,”  Musk said. He added that, “it would make sense to integrate payments into Twitter so that it’s easy to send money back and forth,” noting that this would include, “currency as well as crypto.”

Stating that his goal is “to maximize the usefulness of the service,” Musk said that, “if one can use it to make convenient payments, that’s an increase in usefulness.” He added that, news, entertainment and payments are “three critical areas” for Twitter, in order to make the service “so compelling that you can’t live without it and that everyone wants to use it.”
