    Twitter executives say they aren’t playing Elon Musk’s games. At a company town hall on Thursday, the execs told employees they will not renegotiate the price of his $44 billion takeover agreement—a source familiar with the matter confirmed to The Daily Beast—even as Musk tries to stir up doubt about the number of fake accounts on the platform. Twitter’s share price is currently hovering around $38 per share, well below the $54.20 per share Musk committed to last month. The terms of the buyout agreement will make it hard for him to weasel out of the deal. It includes a $1 billion breakup fee, and the company could sue to try to force Musk to follow through on the transaction. Last week, the Tesla billionaire tweeted that he was putting the buyout on hold until Twitter could prove that spam and fake accounts do not comprise more than 5 percent of its users, as the platform has publicly stated. He has suggested that the estimates are dramatically off but has not publicly offered substantive evidence. Musk later added that...

Online marketing agencies are now managing the accounts of many OnlyFans adult workers, according to a new report by Ezra Marcus for The New York Times. 1Online marketing agencies are now managing the accounts of many OnlyFans adult workers These agencies handle every aspect of running their employee's accounts – from social media accounts to handling direct messaging sales.

    Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk at Tesla's "Gigafactory" on March 22, 2022 in Gruenheide, southeast of Berlin.Patrick Pleul | AFP | Getty Images Elon Musk has said he won't move forward with his $44 billion Twitter acquisition until he has more details about fake accounts on the platform, but he met with the company's top brass for three days to discuss its business before he publicly announced his bid, according to a new securities filing. The filing doesn't specify what was discussed in those meetings or if Musk brought up his concerns about the bots during them. In late March and early April, Musk held discussions with Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey, current CEO Parag Agrawal, Twitter board chair Bret Taylor and board member Egon Durban, among other company executives. The meetings took place after Musk invested in Twitter and before his announcement on April 14, that he was making a formal bid for the company. Twitter's board eventually agreed to sell to Musk for $44 billion late last month, but the future of the deal is...
    A drop in Twitter's stock price and Elon Musk's repeated assertions that he needs more information about fake accounts to proceed with his takeover have raised the prospect that the billionaire will try to renegotiate a lower purchase price for the platform. Musk tweeted early Tuesday morning that his takeover cannot move forward until the platform provides information about the number of spam or fake accounts on the platform. Musk said they could be at least 20% of the accounts on the site, but Twitter said they are less than 5%. JACK DORSEY: TRUMP TWITTER BAN 'SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN' A 'BUSINESS DECISION' "You can't pay the same price for something that is much worse than they claimed," Musk said on Monday at the All-In Summit 2022 conference in Miami. Asked if the Twitter deal is possible at a different price, Musk said, "I mean, it is not out of the question. The more questions I ask, the more my concerns grow." Twitter's share price fell nearly 8% on Monday, leaving it at $36.01, approximately 30% below the $54.20 a...
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk continues to stall his acquisition of the social media platform Twitter, claiming that he cannot move forward until the number of bot accounts on the platform is clarified. Musk said in a tweet to the platform that his offer was based on “Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” and that he believes the platform could have 20 percent bots “or *much* higher.” Twitter has previously claimed that around five percent of the accounts on its platform are bot or fake accounts. Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal recently tweeted a thread outlining how the company measures spam on the platform, in which he stated: “Our actual internal estimates for the last four quarters were all well under 5% – based on the methodology outlined above. The error margins on our estimates give us confidence in our public statements each quarter.” Agrawal later added that Twitter doesn’t believe that the number of bot accounts on the platform can be accurately measured, to which Tesla CEO Elon Musk replied with a poop emoji: ???? — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 16, 2022...
    (CNN Business)Twitch, the livestreaming giant popular among video gamers, has been thrust into the national spotlight after the suspect in the Buffalo grocery store mass shooting tried to broadcast the attack on the platform. Twitch removed the livestream less than two minutes after the violence began on Saturday, a spokesperson for the company told CNN. Despite the quick action by Twitch to delete the content, clips and copies of the disturbing video of the shooting, which police says was a racially-motivated hate crime, quickly spread across other social media platforms over the weekend. The Buffalo shooting suspect had plans to shoot more Black people after deadly rampage at a grocery, authorities sayWhile Twitch may not be as much of a household name as some other large social platforms, the Amazon-owned service has gained immense popularity in recent years beyond gaming. Twitch has become a destination to watch others play video games, raise goats and other animals, and even just sleep. But its core feature -- livestreaming -- poses a huge set of challenges. Live video and live audio have proven...
    These days, mass shooters don’t stop with planning out their physical attacks. They also create marketing plans while arranging to livestream their massacres on social platforms in hopes of fomenting more violence. Sites like Twitter, Facebook and now the game-streaming platform Twitch have learned painful lessons from dealing with the violent videos that now often accompany such shootings. But experts are calling for a broader discussion around livestreams, including whether they should exist at all, since once such videos go online, they’re almost impossible to erase completely. The self-described white supremacist gunman who killed 10 people, most of them Black, at a Buffalo supermarket Saturday had mounted a GoPro camera to his helmet to stream his assault live on Twitch, the video game streaming platform used by another shooter in 2019 who killed two people at a synagogue in Halle, Germany. He had previously outlined his plan in a detailed but rambling set of online diary entries that were apparently posted publicly ahead of the attack, although it’s not clear how may people might have seen them. His goal: to...
    Former President Donald Trump speaks during the American Freedom Tour in Austin, Texas. When the media publishes the truth about you and you don’t like it, if you’ve got the dough, the next best thing is to produce your own content. And that’s what twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is doing. According to Rolling Stone magazine, the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), which was announced in October, is moving forward. The latest step is a search for creatives to help produce content for the newly launched arm of the company, the TMTG+ streaming service. The site explains that the TMTG is a “Big Tent” platform offering “broad-based entertainment rooted in free speech,” a social media app called Truth Social, and “a wide variety of non-scripted, scripted, and original content.” TMTG is currently valued at $1.7 billion and it hopes to reach 10 million subscribers and billions more in revenue, Rolling Stone reports.   Obviously, Trump is looking for a channel that offers an unfiltered stream of MAGA bullshit. I guess Fox News and One America aren’t Pravda...
    In this article TWTRGetty ImagesTwitter CEO Parag Agrawal on Monday laid out how the social media company fights fake and spam accounts on the platform. The information, posted in a lengthy Twitter thread, comes just days after Elon Musk said he would put his $44 billion acquisition of the company "on hold" while he researches the proportion of fake and spam accounts on the platform. Agrawal said that the team updates its systems and rules "constantly" to help take down as much spam as possible, without accidentally suspending real people or adding friction to the user experience. Twitter has said false or spam accounts represented fewer than 5% of its monetizable daily active users in the past quarter. Agrawal said that estimate is based on "multiple human reviews (in replicate) of thousands of accounts, that are sampled at random, consistently over time, from *accounts we count as mDAUS." The company's human review process is based on its rules that define spam and platform manipulation. It uses both public and private data, like IP address and geolocation, to make a determination on each...
    From gaming to 'Fast Laughs', Netflix has broadened its offerings in recent months amid a huge slump in user subscriptions. Now, a new report claims that Netflix is exploring another new avenue – live-streaming. The report, by Deadline, claims that Netflix is considering live-streaming its unscripted shows and stand-up specials.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A toxic cesspool. A lifeline. A finger on the world’s pulse. Twitter is all these things and more to its over 217 million users around the world — politicians, journalists, activists, celebrities, weirdos and normies, cat and dog lovers and just about anyone else with an internet connection. For Elon Musk, its ultimate troll and perhaps most prolific user whose buyout of the company is on increasingly shaky ground, Twitter is a “de facto town square” in dire need of a libertarian makeover. Whether and how the takeover will happen is anyone’s guess. On Friday, Musk announced that the deal is “on hold,” while tweeting that he was still “committed” to it. Earlier in the week, the billionaire Tesla CEO said he’d reverse the platform’s ban of President Donald Trump if his purchase goes through. The same day, he also said he supported a new European Union law aimed at protecting social media users from harmful content. Twitter’s current CEO, meanwhile, fired two top managers on Thursday. All that said, It’s been a messy few weeks...
    In this article TWTRParag Agrawal named Twitter CEO on Nov 29th, 2021.Courtesy: TwitterTwitter CEO Parag Agrawal said Friday that he still expects the sale to Elon Musk to go through, but he's continuing to run the company in case it doesn't. "While I expect the deal to close, we need to be prepared for all scenarios and always do what's right for Twitter," Agarwal said in a tweet. "I'm accountable for leading and operating Twitter, and our job is to build a stronger Twitter every day." Musk tweeted earlier on Friday that the deal is on hold until he finds out more details on how many fake accounts, like spam bots, are on the platform. The stock sank almost 10%, adding to a recent plunge in the company's value. It's now worth about $13 billion less than Musk's agreed upon bid last month of around $44 billion. But Musk may not be able to easily walk away. He'd be on the hook for a $1 billion breakup fee and could face a breach of contract lawsuit that would cost him...
    Former President Donald Trump's media company has begun hiring staff for its video streaming platform as it seeks to build a MAGA challenger to mainstream providers such as Netflix, Hulu and Disney+. In recruitment adverts posted on Wednesday, the Trump Media and Technology Group announced it was seeking a content buyer and a development manager to create programming for its TMTG+ service. The service is part of Trump's attempt to build an alternative media ecosystem after being kicked off Facebook and YouTube in the wake of the January 6 violence last year. But his Truth Social challenger to Twitter has struggled to gain purchase since being launched, and has seen downloads plummet. It is still not available on phones running Android software. The advert suggests TMTG+ will offer a wide range of programs - some original and some bought in - much like other existing platforms.  'Trump Media & Technology Group's streaming video on demand service will be a “Big Tent” platform offering broad-based entertainment rooted in free speech,' it says.  'In addition to the social media platform Truth Social,...

    Musk's plan to buy Twitter has worried policymakers around the world.Joe Skipper | Reuters Elon Musk said Tuesday he would reverse Twitter's ban on former President Donald Trump if his acquisition goes through. "Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts… I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump," Musk said at FT Live's Future of the Car conference. Twitter permanently suspended Trump from the platform in January 2021 following the attack by his supporters on the U.S. Capitol. The company said it made the decision after the Jan. 6 riot "due to the risk of further incitement of violence." Trump at the time had more than 80 million followers on the platform. But once Musk announced he was interested in taking over the company in part to make it a free speech platform, questions arose whether he would invite Trump back on. Trump said last month he wouldn't return to the company if he had the chance. "No, I won't be going back on Twitter," Trump told CNBC's...
    (CNN)Elon Musk said Twitter might soon charge fees for certain users, as the billionaire continues to tease how he might change the platform as its new owner.Musk, who struck a roughly $44 billion deal to buy Twitter last week, said in a tweet the platform will "always be free for casual users," but there might be a "slight cost for commercial/government users." The Tesla and SpaceX chief executive announced the potential major update as a follow-up to a more cryptic tweet he shared earlier Tuesday, which stated, "Ultimately, the downfall of the Freemasons was giving away their stonecutting services for nothing." Musk's suggestion that Twitter could start charging some business and government users comes as company staffers and millions of Twitter users await any clues for how the takeover will impact the platform he's now seeking to take private. News of Musk's takeover has left lawmakers in the U.S. and Europe with questions over the past week. Following Elon Musks takeover, Twitters leadership is likely in for a shakeupMusk referred to Twitter as "the digital town square" in his...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Monday said he supports what Elon Musk is doing with Twitter, but he does not necessarily want the tech company relocating to the Sunshine State. A reporter asked the governor about the chatter of Twitter moving its headquarters to Florida, but the DeSantis was not enthusiastic about the prospect, citing the negative impact it would have on Floridians in terms of cost. “In Florida, I think we’ve done very well, particularly over the last few years, attracting businesses that are producing things,” he said, noting that his administration has worked “really hard” on vocational and career education. But ultimately, “importing some tech company from San Francisco has not been high on our list,” he said. “I think that what happens is they tend to come in, they drive up the cost of living for everybody else and okay, yeah, they enjoy our lower taxes, but you know, what is, what are they really providing?” he asked. However, DeSantis made it clear that he is “supportive” of what the billionaire is doing with the social...
    Last week, Netflix canceled two other animated series for children that were in production — "Dino Daycare" and "Boons and Curses." Netflix has faced challenges in 2022. Fortune reported, "For the first time in a decade, Netflix has lost subscribers, shedding 200,000 users last quarter, the company announced in its earnings report this week. Netflix stock dropped nearly 38% on the news." Year to date, Netflix stock has nosedived by more than 68%. Netflix is the worst performing stock in the S&P 500 this year, according to the New York Times. "Bank of America analyst Nat Schindler says things may get worse for Netflix before they get better. Schindler says Netflix's plans to reignite its growth story won't have a noticeable impact until 2024, giving investors little reason to be excited about the stock in the interim," according to Business Insider. Netflix fired "around 25" employees on Thursday, and Vulture reported that the streaming service "told staffers at its editorial branch, Tudum — reportedly without warning — that they were being fired." Bloomberg reported, "It is tempting to...
    Elon Musk’s $44 billion Twitter purchase will not only mean big changes in the way the social media giant conducts business, but it will also affect users of the platform. Musk’s stated intention for buying the company is to realign its mission. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO sees free speech as the immutable foundation upon which democracy rests and has been critical of how the social media giant has handled speech on its platform in the past. “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” said Musk after the news broke that Twitter’s board had agreed to his offer to buy the company at $54.20 per share — a major premium over where the stock was just a month ago. Many of the changes will invariably focus on topics surrounding free speech and transparency, but the business model and the company itself will also experience an upheaval, given that Musk intends to take the company private. The process on...
