Elon Musk hints at X (Twitter) subscription fee for all users

Published

on


Elon Musk has said that X, the organization previously known as Twitter, is thinking of charging all users to access the website. The owner of X said that putting up a fee would keep away the automated accounts that are known as bots. The CEO of Tesla and the world’s richest man stated that X might start charging its user base while speaking in a meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, which was live streamed. In an effort to fight the platform’s ongoing bot and false account problems, Musk intimated that a monthly subscription scheme would become the standard for all X users.

When the new X subscription plans will go into effect is still unknown. According to the information Elon Musk shared with Netanyahu during their conversation, X has 550 million monthly users who publish up to 100 to 200 million posts per day. If and when X becomes a subscription-only service, that number will unquestionably drop as consumers flock to substitutes. He also discussed that for a long time, Musk has been interested in finding a solution to the bot issue on X, and he was continuously looking for methods to make money off of it and encourage people to choose the X premium service.

Also added is that if X charges even a small amount of money to every user on the social media platform, the overall sum of money that is needed for each person and organization to run a significant number of bots on X would be too costly to sustain. Also, users who want to pay the charge can do it using one of the different payment mechanisms. This would be a great solution as each account on X would require a new payment method, which in turn would make it hard for people or organizations to make payments for them. Users who don’t want to use the paid version of X can shift their interest to alternatives to X, such as BlueSky and Threads.

Elon Musk added, Because a bot costs a fraction of a  penny—cal it a tenth of a  penny—bu even if a bot maker has to pay a few dollars, the effective cost of bots is very high.”
