    Elon Musk Responds as Rumors Swirl After Tucker Carlson’s Big Announcement

    Published on

    Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson announced on Tuesday that he intends to use Twitter as the platform for a new program, causing a buzz on social media.

    The predominant theory was that Carlson and the mysterious lord of Twitter, Elon Musk, had struck a deal to enable this to occur.

    Examples of the discussion were pervasive.

    Tuesday evening, Musk responded to the discussion via Twitter.

    “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,” he wrote.

    “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,” Musk said.

    “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,” Musk wrote.

    According to a report published by Semafor, citing a “person familiar” with Carlson’s intentions, the arrangement benefits both men.

    “Tucker prioritizes influence, Twitter allows him to not just be another podcaster, and get in front of a large, influential audience. He can get back to talking about the news quickly there,” the source said, according to Semafor.

    “The timing works out as Twitter is looking for content creators and Tucker is looking for a place to talk.”

    During a discussion about Carlson’s move to Twitter on NBC’s “Hallie Jackson NOW,” according to Newsbusters, former CNN host Brian Stelter stated, “it’s what Elon Musk wants to provide.”

    “This move by Tucker may cement the idea of Twitter as a right-wing website, and we see some users trying to go off to other sites instead,” he said. CONTINUE READING…
