While Musk has cleaned house of all top execs and board members, he is assembling a close-knit circle of advisers.
The group is working on a range of initiatives to try to bolster the platform’s user experience and revenue, according to people involved in the effort, while Mr. Musk continued to publicly float potential changes in a series of tweets.
Mr. Musk’s team outlined three pillars of its plan for the platform before the deal’s completion, said Ross Gerber, chief executive of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Investment Management, a Santa Monica, Calif., investment firm that put up under $1 million as an outside investor in Mr. Musk’s $44 billion takeover.
The plan includes changing the platform by expanding user verification and improving the subscription offerings to become less reliant on advertisers, he said. It would also add ways for content creators to make money on the platform, so that they could earn a living on it like many creators do on TikTok and YouTube, he said.
