Elon Musk's desperate plea to Taylor Swift

In response to Swift's enthusiastic post about her album, Musk sent a desperate tweet, suggesting that she post music or concert videos directly on the X platform. However, Musk did not give a reason why Swift, a globally successful artist, should post on X. Elon said "I recommend posting some music or concert videos directly on the X platform." As of now, Taylor Swift has yet to respond to Elon Musk's suggestion. One Swiftie succinctly wrote, "No one asked, babe," while another fan humorously quipped, "She's so powerful she has a literal billionaire looking for clout from her." 

Despite Musk's hopes of leveraging Swift's superstardom for his own benefit, it remains doubtful whether this recommendation will amount to more than a Hail Mary pass. X has been embroiled in legal troubles, with the National Music Publishers Association (NMPA) and its members suing the platform for copyright infringement on over 1,700 songs in June. David Israelite, the president of NMPA, noted that "Twitter stands alone as the largest social media platform that has completely refused to license the millions of songs on its service." This legal battle began before Musk's acquisition of the platform, making X the only major social media platform without a music licensing agreement. X has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
