Fake free speech advocate Elon Musk underestimated the number of fascists, Nazis, MAGA cultists, and Christian Nationalists that would be willing to pay for his troll-friendly version of Twitter, reports The Information [paywall]. Only 180,000 people have signed up for Twitter Blue. At $84/year the total revenue is about $15 million a year.
By way of comparison, Twitter made a $300 million interest payment on the $13 billion Musk borrowed when he bought Twitter. In other words, $15 million is 1.25% of its annual debt burden. This is the information Musk's sycophants were waiting for to prove he is playing a masterful game of 4D chess.
