In a recent development, social media platform, X, formerly Twitter, has introduced two subscription plans to enhance the experience of users, offering them more choices and an opportunity to enjoy an ad-free environment.
The subscriptions include a Premium+ plan, for approximately $16 per month. This premium subscription grants users access to all the tools and features available on the platform while eliminating ads that often disrupt the user experience. However, this ad-free experience is solely available to users accessing the platform through a web browser.
For those who prefer a more affordable option, X offers a more wallet-friendly option. The basic tier subscription, priced at $3 per month, provides users with the core features of the platform. However, this basic tier does not include an ad-free experience, so users may still encounter ads while browsing their feeds.
In addition to these subscription offerings, X has ambitious plans to further expand its services. The platform is exploring the possibility of bundling video and audio calling features for select users. This move is part of an overarching strategy to transform X into an all-encompassing app that offers a wide range of communication and content-sharing capabilities.
Owner of X, Elon Musk, has been actively seeking ways to monetize and enhance the user experience on the social media platform since his acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion in October 2022.
These new subscription plans represent a significant step in that direction, providing users with choices and opportunities to tailor their X experience to their liking. It remains to be seen how these changes will impact the platform’s user base and revenue, but it’s clear that Musk’s vision for X extends far beyond its origins as a microblogging platform.
