After successful startup founder Elon Musk says he’d pay $100 to get the old Twitter back, Nikita Beers, co-founder of social-media startup Gas, isn’t a fan of Twitter’s product changes.
He tweeted at Elon Musk on Tuesday, saying he would pay $100 for the option to reverse the changes. He had earlier tweeted to make Musk the product head of Twitter.
Nikita Bir, co-founder of social-media startups Gas and tbh, isn’t a fan of Elon Musk’s Twitter product changes. Bear tweeted at Musk on Tuesday, “Monetization idea: I would pay you $100 to roll back all the product changes you made before you acquired Twitter.”

Elon Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider. Beer did not immediately respond to a request for further comment prior to publication. This isn’t the first time Beer, whose startups have been acquired by Discord and Facebook, has tweeted at Musk about Twitter. He tweeted in April and October for Musk to hire him to lead product at the company.
I think the role will be exciting but Gus is completely occupying my time right now, Byers told Insider via Twitter DM in October. Gas is an anonymous social-media app aimed at teens, in which users vote in hourly polls after syncing the app with their location. It ranked as the No. 1 social-media app on the App Store after its launch last year.
Twitter has made big changes since Elon Musk bought the company for $44 billion in October, which has ruffled some feathers. For example, in an effort to find new revenue streams, Elon Musk relaunched Twitter’s subscription platform, Twitter Blue, including offering users to pay a monthly fee to make the blue check mark public. For verified accounts of figures especially to prove that they were genuine.
Most recently, they made changes to Twitter’s newsfeed, including a “For You” feed that shows recommended Tweets, though they announced the change after some users complained. Since taking office, Musk has also ousted several top executives, including former product chief Jay Sullivan. Elon Musk reportedly emailed Twitter employees earlier this month: “We’ll keep toggling until we get as close to the right product as possible.”
