How the Creator of DOGE Plans to Increase Earnings on Twitter
Billy Markus, co-founder of Dogecoin (DOGE), expressed his enthusiasm for earning money on Twitter. Markus, who created the popular meme cryptocurrency with Jackson Palmer in 2013, is on good terms with Twitter CEO Elon Musk and has been active on the platform. He recently tweeted about his appreciation for the feature on Twitter that allows him to receive payments and expressed his desire for more of that in the future.
Musk recently introduced a subscription feature on Twitter, enabling content creators to receive regular rewards from their subscribers. The subscription fee is not fixed and varies for different creators. For example, a monthly subscription to Markus costs 3.33 euros, while Musk’s fee is 4.40 euros in USD equivalent for U.S. residents. Despite having significantly fewer followers than Musk, Markus has become the second highest-paid content creator on Twitter, earning $37,500. Musk distributed a total of $5 million in rewards to creators, marking the first block of payments on Twitter.
Markus took a jab at Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, for allegedly stealing ideas from other digital creators. He criticized Zuckerberg for launching a Twitter clone called Threads App on Instagram, which Meta, previously known as Facebook, acquired. Markus metaphorically stated that Musk “created oxygen so we could breath,” while “Zuckerberg invented carbon monoxide to kill us all.” This remark adds to the ongoing rivalry between Musk and Zuckerberg.
There has been speculation about a potential cage fight between Musk and Zuckerberg in the near future, with the Colosseum being considered as one of the possible locations. Musk challenged Zuckerberg to the fight after the release of Threads App. Both billionaires are reportedly training with martial arts experts for the event, which promises to be an exciting and enjoyable spectacle if it takes place.
Overall, Markus’s interest in earning money on Twitter reflects the growing trend of content creators monetizing their presence on social media platforms. The rivalry between Musk and Zuckerberg also continues to grab attention, as their clash of ideas and competition in the tech industry continues to unfold.
