Elon Musk Wednesday said that Twitter may charge a slight fee for commercial and government users, indicating at what Twitter will be like after he purchased the microblogging site last month. The Tesla CEO, however, clarified that for "casual users", Twitter will be "always free".

In another post on Twitter, Musk said: "Ultimately, the downfall of the Freemasons was giving away their stonecutting services for nothing."

The latest posts by Musk hints that Musk seems to be wanting to end free Twitter, meanwhile, he also wants to expand the reach of the microblogging site beyond the 'niche' audience.

Talking to reporters at the annual Met Gala in New York, Musk said: "Right now it's sort of niche. I want a much bigger percentage of the country to be on it, engaging in dialogue."

Musk also said that he would make Twitter transparent about how tweets are promoted and wants the software of the site to be publicly available for critics.
