On “The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin shared a video clip from Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s surprise appearance on the “All-In" podcast with hosts David Sacks, Chamath Palihapitiya, Jason Calacanis, and David Friedberg.
Asked about Dave Rubin's observation of the New York Times’ inflated follower counts on Twitter, Musk gave a brutally honest answer about what has been going on behind the scenes at the social media company, what his first six weeks as the CEO have been like, and what new features Twitter users can expect in the near future.
"It's been quite a roller coaster," Musk said. "But overall that seems to be going in a good direction, and, you know, we've got the expenses reasonably under control, so the company's not in the fast lane to bankruptcy anymore, and we're releasing features faster than ever in Twitter's history at the same time as having contained the costs, and we've reduced the cost structure by a factor of three, maybe four."
Musk went on to describe several of the new features to verify user identities and organization affiliations and to eliminate bots or inauthentic accounts. Later in the podcast, he shocked his hosts by stating that "almost every conspiracy theory that people had about Twitter turned out to be true" as they discussed the Twitter Files, a set of reports released to expose Twitter's alleged information suppression and collusion with government agencies prior to Musk's purchase of the company in October 2022.
