Square, Inc. Announces Plans To Acquire Majority Ownership Stake In TIDAL

Jack Dorsey is ceo of Square, and also ceo of Twitter. Sort of: Twitter buys Tidal.

Sort of a bad deal imho.
JayZ did well and unloaded Tidal before Spotify takes them out.
Jack Dorsey - not the best of acquisitions imho

if dorsey has acquired , he has potential to take it and scale it to much higher levels than spotify if the strategy is right.potential is there but only time will tell if they live up to it.

With all due respect, I don’t think this is about music. It’s about banking. Jack Dorsey empowering artists? My sides are splitting.


I’m in a wait and see mode. I’ve enjoyed Tidal Hifi so as long as the quality doesn’t change and they don’t shaft the artist. I’m good.

Have to agree with Greg, this acquisition is all about monetising content flows; imagine linking Twitter’s “Super Follower” content creators to their music and use Tidal as a music content distribution platform, and suddenly there’s a business model that Apple/Spotify/Amazon don’t have! :star_struck:
