Jimmy “MrBeast” is causing a stir on Twitter once again after revealing that Elon Musk is one of his subscribers on the platform. MrBeast is a well-known American YouTuber and philanthropist who has been credited with pioneering a genre of YouTube videos that features expensive stunts. He currently boasts over 130 million subscribers as of January 2023.
As soon as MrBeast discovered that Elon Musk was one of his dedicated subscribers, he wasted no time in sharing a screenshot of the evidence on Twitter. “Elon Musk is now paying me $5 a month, who’s really in charge now,” he jokingly wrote in his tweet, which quickly amassed thousands of likes.
While Musk has yet to respond to the YouTuber’s tweet, many believe that the two will have some sort of discussion given that Twitter’s subscription service has just launched. It’s worth noting that creating a dedicated revenue stream for content creators and Twitter Blue were among Elon Musk’s initial ideas to make the platform more profitable. While the latter was implemented first, it received backlash from big names such as LeBron James, who refused to pay a monthly fee for more features on the social media website.
However, in February 2023, Musk announced that Twitter would be sharing ad revenue with creators to make the platform more attractive to content creators. This move has been welcomed by many.
MrBeast’s reveal that Elon Musk is one of his subscribers has been met with mixed reactions. Some people saw it as a ‘flex’ for MrBeast, while others joked that it was very noble of Musk to promote ‘small creators.’ Several people have already received notifications to subscribe to MrBeast’s Twitter account, with a select few already boasting the ‘subscriber’ badge in the comments.
It remains to be seen if MrBeast and Elon Musk will collaborate in some way, but for now, it seems that the YouTuber is enjoying the attention that Musk’s subscription has brought him.
