The tech world is buzzing about Twitter’s plans to enter the payments market.
Elon Musk wants Twitter to offer peer-to-peer transactions, savings accounts, and debit cards. Musk’s goal is to create an “everything app” which will provide messaging, payments, and commerce.
Now that Elon Musk, an expert in disruptive technology, has taken ownership of the company, it looks like Twitter is set to redefine the industry again. This time as a platform for digital payments and financial transactions.
If all goes according to plan, Twitter could compete with rivals Apple Pay and PayPal by offering an easier way for users to interact with merchants and initiate payments.
With Musk leading the charge, it seems only time will tell if Twitter succeeds in its bold move into the payments market.
The Financial Times has reported that the company is pursuing the necessary licenses to become a payment platform in America. According to the report, Esther Crawford, Twitter’s Director of Product Management, is working on developing the infrastructure for this new service. According to the report, Musk aims to transform Twitter into an “Everything App.”
Musk has been teasing the possibility of a payment platform for some time, with hints of its development back in November.
Though still unconfirmed, rumors suggest that users will be able to send money directly and securely to other people on the social network. This feature will make it a handy tool for small businesses, freelancers, and individuals.
Whether or not this highly anticipated service succeeds remains to be seen. Watch this space as Twitter continues to work on its secret payment platform!
Twitter’s entry into the payments market is a significant development. While it will bring more competition, it shows that innovative companies like Twitter will continue to innovate and provide more value.
It will be interesting to see how this new service plays out. I’m optimistic it could succeed!
