Prominent YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson and business tycoon Elon Musk have often had some interesting exchanges on social media. However, during the recent Twitter encounter, the two entrepreneurs meant ‘business’. Elon Musk expressed his wish to bring back a video platform named ‘Vine’ and MrBeast was quick enough to pour in some suggestions.


The CEO of American automobile company ‘Tesla’ recently completed his Twitter takeover and has already started to chalk out plans to make some major changes on the platform. He also started a poll on whether ‘Vine’ should be brought back or not.

Surprisingly, half of the Twitter is for the decision and amongst these people is the Forbes’ Number 1 content creator ‘MrBeast’. He replied to the poll claiming that, “If you did that and actually competed with TikTok that’d be hilarious.” Elon Musk then asked for advice from the creator about the things they could do to make ‘Vine’ better than TikTok.

MrBeast, who happens to have a first-hand experience in business and marketing was quick to suggest that they should make something which is hard to copy. He brought out some examples from Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, all of which have a separate section for short videos and if they are unable to bring something unique, “it’s a waste of time imo”, he stated.

The owner of Tesla and Spacecraft engineering company, ‘SpaceX’ started making waves in the business industry after buying Twitter for $44 billion USD. After firing the board of directors, the CEO, Elon Musk stands to be the ‘sole director’ of the social media giant.

From charging famous personalities for keeping the ‘blue ticks’ on their account to reversing lifetime bans, the richest person in the world is slowly revamping the platform, but ‘Twitter makeover’ is not his only plan. He wishes to bring back ‘Vine’, which was discontinued by Twitter on 2016, due to the emergence of several platforms bringing ‘short video’ sections.
