Elon Musk on Saturday said Twitter signups and active minutes are at an all-time high as he continues to roll out his 2.0 version of the platform.
Musk shared a series of slides he said were from a Twitter company talk he delivered. The slides included graphs as well as features he plans to include in Twitter 2.0, a term he's used to refer to his vision for the social media site.
Graphs shared by Musk showed signups reached a seven-day average of 2 million per day as of November 16, representing an increase of 66% from the same week a year prior. User active minutes reached a seven-day average of 8 billion per day, a 30% increase from the year prior.
Both figures were record highs, according to the slides, which cited internal company data.
Another graph shared by Musk showed hate speech impressions appeared to be slightly lower than a year prior, despite spiking around the time Musk took over the company. Reports previously said hate speech and the use of racial slurs skyrocketed immediately after the takeover.
The slides also listed features and goals Musk has for Twitter 2.0, including long-form tweets, encrypted DMs, and "advertising as entertainment."
One graph showed reported impersonations on Twitter dramatically spiked around the launch of Twitter Blue, or the $8 blue check mark, but then fell to a level closer to the same time last year. The slides noted plans to "relaunch Blue Verified," which was suspended after accounts with blue checks used their verified status to impersonate and troll famous people and brands.

Musk and Twitter did not respond to requests for comment or additional details about the company talk he said the slides were used for.
The Tesla and SpaceX billionaire has dramatically shaken up the social media platform since taking over on October 27. He previously shared some details of his vision for Twitter 2.0, which he described as "extremely hardcore," Insider's Kali Hays reported.
