How would he help Twitter?

Musk is probably going to do brainstorming sessions with Sriram about reshaping the company to have a better shot in the market. One of the biggest issues with Twitter is monetizing it. However, Musk has already some ideas to change the same as being discussed on social media.

Elon believes that a Twitter-verified account should pay for the same. He wants to make the blue tick available to people who pay a subscription fee of around $20.

It would be interesting to watch Sriram assist Musk with the necessary and proposed changes to help Twitter evolve.
