YouTuber MrBeast to stop uploading videos on Musk’s X, cites poor monetisation

Youtuber Mr Beast not to upload videos on XIANS

YouTube sensation Jimmy Donaldson (aka MrBeast) has snubbed Elon Musk, saying his won’t upload his videos on X as doing so would not even fund a fraction of what he spends on making those videos.

When famous X handle DogeDesigner asked MrBeast to upload his latest video on X too, and Musk said ‘yeah’, the YouTuber replied it is not possible.

“My videos cost millions to make and even if they got a billion views on X it wouldn’t fund a fraction of it,” MrBeast replied to Musk.

“I’m down though to test stuff once monetisation is really cranking,” said MrBeast, who calls himself X Super Official CEO.

A follower commented: “He told Elon ‘You cant afford me lil bro’.

DogeDesigner again requested MrBeast to post his videos on both YouTube and X.

An X user replied: “It would hurt the views on YouTube which would normally make him money to find the videos. Posting on both is a terrible option at scale it’s splitting your own market share”.

“Plus the video user interface here is missing a lot of options that YouTube has,” another X user posted.

The tech billionaire is aiming to make X ‘an everything app” like China’s WeChat and videos are an integral part of his plan.

Musk in October tested video game streaming on the platform. In a 50-minute-long stream, he streamed himself playing the popular online action role-playing game Diablo 4.
