His viral tweet has also attracted the attention of Twitter owner Elon Musk as well as Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.

‘You should actually’

As his tweet started to go viral, he made another announcement stating that he would be shifting to X full-time.

Judging by their work in recent years, he is slowly making his presence known on Twitter too, after being encouraged by Elon Musk.

This year, in January, he made his first video on Twitter to check out the market as well as its revenue generation. Later, he revealed that he earned almost $250K from this. But, according to his own acknowledgment, he believes the money earned via X is too little compared to YouTube.

Also, he is now bringing his content to Amazon Prime. He has partnered with the OTT platform to bring shows based on his MrBeast games.
