Elon Musk is a living example of ‘you can buy anything just to have fun with it.’ And that is what the Tesla owner has been doing ever since he acquired Twitter for approximately $44 billion.

Musk took to the microblogging site to reveal what he has next in mind for Twitter users. The billionaire wants to commercialize Twitter for governments and private businesses.

Twitter will always be free for casual users, but maybe a slight cost for commercial/government users

Musk initially purchased a 9% stake in Twitter which made him the biggest shareholder in the company. He was then offered a seat on the board of directors but refused it.

We’ll have to see what Elon Musk does next. He has teased accepting Dogecoin for Twitter’s pay service as well. That helped the cryptocurrency out a lot.

It was earlier reported that Musk had to sell $8.5 billion dollars worth of Tesla’s shares to finalize Twitter’ acquisition. Musk sold 3.7 million shares on Tuesday for $3.3 billion. On Wednesday, he sold 735,000 shares for $654 million.
