Just In: Elon Musk Breaks Silence On Tucker Carlson’s Huge Announcement

(SNews) – Elon Musk broke his silence on the bombshell news that Tucker Carlson will relaunch his show On Twitter. Musk said he did not sign a deal with Tucker and that Tucker will be paid like everyone else, through subscriptions and via advertising revenue share.

That means Tucker Carlson has some serious cojones because Rupert Murdoch and Fox News will not pay him his $20 million a year. So he is taking a massive risk. Tucker did put Fox News on notice before he made his announcement by asking for documents from the network’s lawyers and accusing the Fox of fraud.

Fox News will have to tread carefully because if they are seen as trying to silence Tucker the backlash will be severe. Musk said:

“On this platform, unlike the one-way street of broadcast, people are able to interact, critique and refute whatever is said.

“And, of course, anything misleading will get @CommunityNotes.

“I also want to be clear that we have not signed a deal of any kind whatsoever. Tucker is subject to the same rules & rewards of all content creators.

“Rewards means subscriptions and advertising revenue share (coming soon), which is a function of how many people subscribe and the advertising views associated with the content.

“I hope that many others, particularly from the left, also choose to be content creators on this platform.”

A Twitter user said:

“Hot take:@Twitter can become the world’s number-one podcast platform in LESS than 90 days.

“Posting the @CDG_Podcast directly on Twitter grew my active listeners by *400%* in 1 week.

Why? Because people can listen without going to another platform.

“Here are 5 critical upgrades that are still needed:

— Picture-in-picture

— Speed up/down

— 10-second rewind/forward

— Ability to listen with the phone closed

— Add a “Podcasts” tab on the Profile page next to Tweets and Replies (for discoverability)

“Insane opportunity.”

Musk said: “Yup.”
