SpaceX is binge-buying Twitter ad space

Elon Musk, CEO of electric vehicle maker Tesla and space development company SpaceX , became CEO of the company after acquiring Twitter in October 2022. Before and after the acquisition of Twitter by Mr. Mask, advertisers who are concerned about Twitter's lawlessness in the mask system and the increase in fake accounts are accelerating to leave Twitter. Meanwhile, it became clear that SpaceX purchased more than $ 160,000 (about 22 million yen) of Twitter advertising space.

Mr. Mask has argued that ``Twitter should uphold freedom of speech to protect democracy,'' even before executing the acquisition of Twitter, and advertisers said, ``Twitter's content moderation has been relaxed, and it is illegal. Content and extreme content will increase,' was pointed out. Mr. Musk told advertisers the day before the acquisition of Twitter, ``Don't be a freewheeling hellscape where Twitter can't be punished for anything. We have to comply and welcome everyone warmly.' A major advertising company has developed into a situation calling for a temporary suspension of advertising on Twitter.

In the current situation where advertisers are leaving Twitter one after another as described above, it became clear that SpaceX, where Mr. Mask is CEO, has newly purchased more than $ 160,000 in Twitter advertising space. According to CNBC, the advertising space purchased by SpaceX is called 'takeover', and companies that purchase takeover can post brand images at the top of the Twitter timeline for one day. SpaceX plans to show Starlink ads in Australia and Spain through a deal with Twitter.

Asked about the deal between Twitter and SpaceX, Musk said, ``SpaceX's Starlink purchased a small (not large) advertising package to verify the effectiveness of Twitter advertising in Australia and Spain. We also made similar deals with Google, ”he claims that Twitter's ad space purchase was part of an advertising test involving Google, Facebook, and others.
