Based on Musk’s post, the more affordable plan would pack all the premium features such as the option to edit, highlight or prioritise posts. But it would be supported by ads just like the free version. The premium subscription plan, on the other hand, would offer ad-free experience.
Earlier this week, X brought the most significant change to the platform to date by rolling out a $1 annual charge for new users in New Zealand and the Philippines to counter bots and fake accounts on the platform.
“As of October 17, 2023 we’ve started testing ‘Not A Bot’, a new subscription method for new users in two countries. This new test was developed to bolster our already significant efforts to reduce spam, manipulation of our platform and bot activity,” the company said in a blog post.
“This will evaluate a potentially powerful measure to help us combat bots and spammers on X, while balancing platform accessibility with the small fee amount. Within this test, existing users are not affected,” it added.
New X users who do not pay the $1 per year fee would only be able to take “read-only” actions, such as reading posts, watching videos, and following accounts, according to X.
