Elon Musk’s arrival at Clubhouse sparked interest in the booming social network that promises invitation-only exclusivity. His announcement has caused the already booming app to explode.
Succeeding in the field of social networks is by no means easy. In the USA, we have witnessed the failure of many, such as Google‘s failed attempts. However, Clubhouse, the most exclusive social network of the moment, could achieve what others do not. This time, by the hands of Elon Musk…
Musk has announced an audio session at Clubhouse via Twitter. What also happened recently with Bitcoin and Elon Musk, Musk’s mere mention of Clubhouse has caused the social network to come to the forefront, and the anticipation has been enormous.
The audio room has peaked at 5,000 people and has reached the point of ‘tapping’ the conversation via YouTube and other platforms to find out what Musk was talking about.
Clubhouse benefits from Elon Musk’s tweet
The summary of Musk’s conversation with his audience is simple: He talked about trivial things. Many expected Elon to make a major announcement of the many projects he has in the pipeline (the revamped interior of the Tesla Model S, the eternal Tesla Roadster, the unknowns of Hyperloop), but nothing could have been further from the truth.
He has talked about aliens, has been asked about the mess of GameStop and Wall Street shares, and has given his opinion on the “Dogecoin”, a cryptocurrency that until now was considered little more than a meme and that has achieved a certain prominence in the Reddit war with the economic leadership of the United States.
From the very moment, Elon Musk announced the audio session, many tried to access the room in every possible way. Virtually every platform has been used to ‘tap’ into the audio session; from YouTube and Twitter to Twitch.
While the room has admitted 5,000 people, the potential reach of this talk has been much greater. Some YouTube streamings have reached 30,000 views, which undoubtedly equals publicity for Clubhouse.
In USA, some Clubhouse alternatives are also gaining popularity such as “Stereo”, an application that works similarly. The content creators make audio live shows in which users can ask questions through audio, with the difference that this one does not require an invitation.
It’s too early to tell whether Clubhouse will become a new contender in the monopolized social networking plan that currently exists. However, if Musk uses it as his new hangout after all the trouble he has caused on Twitter, perhaps time will bring a surprise.
