MrBeast, a well-known online personality, recently declared that he is leaving YouTube and will be “posting to X full time now.” The YouTuber, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, has confused his fans and supporters with this development. A lot of people think this might be an April Fools’ joke. Billionaire Elon Musk responded, “You should actually,” to his post on X (formerly Twitter), in response to the news.

Since being shared, Mr Donaldson’s post has amassed over 17 million views and 16 lakh likes. Many internet users were shocked after MrBeast announced the decision.

“Bro please don’t you’re literally the best YouTuber there is. I wake up every morning and pray that you will upload a new YouTube video. The days you upload are the best days of my life. When I get that notification I put on my Mr Beast shirt, get a feastable out of the cupboard, and pour myself a glass of milk to enjoy while I watch your newest video several times. Please rethink this Mr Beast I literally love you,” said  a user.

The official account of YouTube replied to his post and said, “where was ur 2 weeks??”

“It’s April 1st isn’t it,” said a person.

“Almost took it serious then I realized it’s 1st April,” added a person.

A person wrote, “Almost took it serious then I realized it’s 1st April.”

“Thank god, Mr Least. Maybe now you can finally leave your aunt’s basement and get a real job that pays real money,” said another person.

In January, MrBeast uploaded a video “directly” on Elon Musk-owned microblogging platform and amassed 161 million views in eight days. The video was widely shared on the platform by Mr Musk and X Chief Executive Officer Linda Yaccarino. The internet sensation stated that his clip titled “$1 vs $100,000,000 Car” made over $2,50,000 (approximately ₹ 2 crore). However, the YouTuber called the whole experience a “facade”.

“MY FIRST X VIDEO MADE OVER $250,000. But it’s a bit of a facade. Advertisers saw the attention it was getting and bought ads on my video (I think) and thus my revenue per view is prob higher than what you’d experience,” the YouTuber posted on X and shared a screenshot of his account’s analytics as proof. As per the screengrab, he will make $263,655 off his video. In another post, he wrote, “I’m gonna give 10 random people that repost this and follow me $25,000 for fun (the $250,000 my X video made).”

It should be noted that users on X must pay $8 per month for Premium or $16 per month for Premium+ in order to be eligible for a portion of the advertising revenue, whereas YouTube only requires 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of viewing in the previous year to be eligible for monetisation.

At the beginning, Mr. Donaldson had declined requests from Mr. Musk to post videos on the microblogging site, claiming that his productions “cost millions to make” and that X would only pay “a fraction” of those expenses.
